Look, any fashionista can tell you that shopping should be considered a full body sport (especially during those after Christmas sales). So it's fitting that Nordstrom, with its range of high-end customer services, has added a full-service spa into the mix to relieve those aches and pains from a grueling day at the mall. It offers a range of massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs and restorative treatments; we are particularly fond of the signature Grande Mocha Java Meltdown, which both relaxes and invigorates with an organic cappuccino sugar scrub followed by a Vichy shower as rain therapy and hypothermic body contouring, as well as the Tropical Smoothie Mud Wrap, featuring a scrub of vanilla, orange, certified organic sugar cane, and vitamins A, C and D, followed by a Sleeping Beauty Desert Oasis body mask of virgin white clay combined with an array of organic essential oils. Two words: Pure heaven.
For the full-body experience, try the hour-long Passion of the East, a combination of Spa Nordstrom's most requested treatments: an aromatic and herbal foot soak ritual; a botanical body mask to exfoliate, cleanse and detoxify; herbal-infused oil directed to the forehead to quiet the mind and soothe the senses, then massaged into the hair and scalp; a mini-facial and massage to hands and feet with an herbal-infused oil; and finally an application of Ayurvedic herbs to nourish hair roots and condition the scalp.
