Carpal Tunnel Hand Massage
Carpal tunnel is so prevalent in the workplace that the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) in the U.S. claims that "repetitive musculoskeletal injuries like Carpal Tunnel syndrome have become the nation's leading workplace health cost." Hours spent at the computer and repetitive movements on the keyboard and mouse have contributed to this ailment. Although spa therapists recommend consulting a professional specialist for comprehensive treatment, soft tissue massage is often prescribed for suffers. To alleviate pain and prevent serious symptoms, the 20-minute hand massage is an excellent start. The Carpal Tunnel Hand massage helps improve circulation by relieving pressure points in the wrists, palms and fingers. Starting therapy early when the symptoms are mild is the best approach. 20 minutes / $65 USD.
Power Point Body Massage
Symptoms related to long hours spent fine-tuning the latest Power Point presentation include poor posture, misaligned backs, neck pains, migraines, insomnia and anxiety. To offset traditional aches and pains, the Power Point Massage begins with relaxing breathing exercises and supplemented with calming aromatherapy. The masseuse works the back, neck and shoulders relieving points of tension. The massage follows to the arms and hands. Reflexology is used on the hands to stimulate press points for overall good health. 50 minutes / $98 USD.
Jet Lag Body Treatment
Constant business trips contribute to jet lag, the temporary disruption of the body resulting in fatigue and disorientation. Spa Marquis has developed a rigorous and stimulating treatment to combat jet lag symptoms. First, guests drink a veggie and fruit remedy made from calcium and magnesium-rich broccoli, cabbage, dates, figs and raisins. Calcium and magnesium especially aid in the recuperation of energy. The treatment begins with a relaxing foot soak with eucalyptus. While soaking, guests sip a hot tea, brimming with medicinal plants. An exfoliation with mineral salts follows. Guests are then treated to a bath soak with a dermo-purifying treatment for the skin, treating skin suffering from undesirable climate changes and exposure to tobacco, smog and air conditioning. The body is then covered in milk hydrating wrap, which leaves the body purified, oxygenated and ready for the business ahead. 100 minutes / $165 USD.
The 16,000-sq ft Spa Marquis has 11 treatment rooms offering massage, aromatherapy, hydro-therapy, facials and scrubs. Other facilities include separate ladies' and gentlemen's areas, each with its own Jacuzzi, steam bath and sauna; resting area; a panoramic swimming pool; beauty parlor; swiss shower and a fully-equipped fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment.
The 209-room Marquis Reforma and member of Leading Hotels of the World offers guests handsome surroundings in a post-modern, Art Deco influenced style. Most of the guest rooms are suites. The hotel's two restaurants are presided over by a chef honored at the illustrious James Beard House in New York.
