Tea and Comfort Body Wrap

Maxine Spa & Salon

712 North Rush St.


The herbal perfumes of most scrubs and rubs leave us cold - but not Maxine Spa's spice scented Tea and Comfort Body Wrap.  Esthetician Molly Gray first painlessly dry-brushed our skin with a medium-bristle brush. She basted us in a warm oil of hazelnut, cinamon, and geranium, wrapped us in a plastic sheet and warm blankets, then left us to bake. Once we'd showered and dressed, Gray led us to the relaxation room with a steaming cup of green tea and cinnamon. We felt as if we'd spent several hours curled up by a warm fire.
