The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles offers a number of specialty massages. If you’re in need of a little acupressure, go for the Ku Nye, a massage that uses Tibetan techniques of acupressure, cupping and kneading; or if you need to soothe post-workout muscles, the yoga-like Swe-Thai massage is just right. Other massages include Raindrop Aromatherapy, which focuses on the alignment of the spine; stone therapy, which utilizes warm and cool stones to relieve muscle tension; and the Manipura, which brings energy to your body through reflexology. There’s even a little something for those suffering with jet lag — the Punta Mita Tequila, which uses tequila and sage to improve circulation, aid digestion and relieve fatigue. If you think your fatigue is just too much for one therapist to manage, opt for the Four Seasons Synchronized massage that’s performed in harmony by two therapists. However, our favorite massage here is the California Cabana. It’s a 60-minute treatment that’s performed poolside in one of the private cabanas, and since you’re in sunny California, it feels just right.
If you are a traditionalist, The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills has you covered. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa also offers the basic massages (you know, the ones you’ve heard of), such as Swedish, deep-tissue, Shiatsu and maternity. You can also enhance your massage with the addition of scalp treatment or reflexology.
