No day at Bliss 49 Spa is complete without experiencing one of their signature treatments:
Do you have an important occasion coming up and need to look super hot in that super tight dress? Then opt for the fatgirlshrink treatment, where you’ll see immediate slimming, firming and soothing results. This detoxifying treatment starts by measuring your problem parts and slathering on lots of solutions. Then a thermal clay mask is applied with pads that emit a muscle-stimulating current to encourage lymphatic drainage. Then you’re measured again. Try not to gasp when you see the results.
Triple Oxygen Facial
The most popular facial on the menu starts with a skin-type-specific peel that is followed with an oxygen wrap. Then steel yourself for the necessary extractions. Your skin is then soothed with Triple Oxygen cream and mask, an enzyme pack and an oxygen spray. It’s like a breath of fresh air for your skin.
Their signature head-to-toe 75 minute massage will have you feeling oh-so-groovy. Your therapist will target your most troubled muscles and include a warm wax foot-softening wrap. You might need someone to peel you off the table afterwards.
This mint flavored pedicure incorporates all the standard Bliss pedicure procedures using alternating hot and cold therapies to help circulation and drive away achy, swollen feet and puffy ankles.
