All that glitters is not gold. All that sparkles is not silver. But if something shimmers can it make you slimmer? We think it can. Shiny, pretty atmospheres make you smile and when you smile you’re happy and when you’re happy you’re energetic and when you’re energetic you lose weight. Well, maybe not, but at The Roxbury at least you have not just one, but a choice of two places to go to where you can relax, either sit in a hot tub or sauna or steam room; cool off in a shower made out of soothing river rock or glimmering green mosaic tile; warm yourself back up in front of a dancing fireplace or a calming mountain-village view; and then start the process all over again or go back to your room for a snooze.
Let’s get one thing straight off the bat. The Shimmer Spa is NOT a big full-service spa with separate male and female changing areas and hallways full of multiple treatment rooms with attendants serving you fruit smoothies or gooping them all over your skin. The Shimmer Spa is actually comprised of two different areas: The Shimmer Spa South in our main buildings where you can go to relax in an intimate 600 sq ft “mini-spa” made of thousands of shimmering iridescent mosaic tiles complete with a hot tub, a dry sauna, a fireplace, a bathroom, and a wonderful shower made of black river rock that massages your feet while you take a shower. OR indulge yourself at The Shimmer Spa North across the street where you’ll find 1200sf of spa space including ‘The Green Steam’ (a large steam area made out of 100% recycled green car windshield glass), two completely private treatment rooms including one large enough for a simultaneous couples’ massage, and a whimsically elegant relaxation room library where you can shut out the outside world while lounging in cushy chaises or perusing our generous selection of coffee table books.
Usage of both of the spa facilities is just $20 per person per stay (not per day) and both spa areas are open from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Spa treatments can be performed in one of our treatment areas, or if you’re staying in one of our kitchenettes, big king themes, or suites, we can occasionally offer some of our treatments in your own room.
Please note that we strongly suggest booking your spa treatments as far in advance as possible. Time slots fill up quickly and we cannot always guarantee that treatments will be available if you do not book at least 48 hours prior to your stay. The Shimmer Spa North and South and spa treatments are available to guests of The Roxbury only; they are not open to the general public.
The following is our current spa menu. Please contact us directly to begin your relaxation and rejuvenation journey!
Swedish Massage $110-55 min/$165-85 min
A full body relaxation massage to enhance circulation, relieve muscle tension & increase flexibility. Long gliding strokes & warm oil help your mind & body to rest & release.
Deep Tissue Massage $125-55 min/$185-85 min
Various techniques are used to access deeper tissues and target specific muscle groups, fascia and tendons to aid in recovery from injury, maintain health from everyday overuse and target “knots” and other imbalances. A perfect choice if you have a problem area or two that requires detailed attention.
Reflexology $125-55 min/$185-85 min
Based on the theory of zones and areas of the feet and hands that correspond with organs, glands and areas of the body as a whole, reflexology works to promote health throughout the entire body as well as clears energetic pathways. Our Reflexology massage includes a relaxing Swedish massage with special time and attention focused on the zones and corresponding areas of the feet, hands and scalp.
Hot Stone Therapy $140-55 min/$210-85 min
The warmth of the stones not only feels luxurious, but aids in melting your tension away and promoting relaxation. The heat allows your Massage Therapist to work deeper and more efficiently by increasing local circulation and easing discomfort in your muscles and other tissues.
Couples Teaching Massage $220-2 hours
You and your partner receive a Swedish massage one after the other with a Massage Therapist teaching you how to give your partner’s body exactly what it needs. The session is completely tailored to the needs and the
expectations of each couple. A great way to get some foundational skills to use at home together.
Simultaneous Couples Massage
$220-55 min/$330-85 min
You and your partner enjoy a relaxing massage together in the same room with 2 Massage Therapists. The price is based on Simultaneous Swedish massages but we can accommodate any 2 types of treatments you like. Please specify which type of treatment you would each prefer when booking.
Saltglow $140-55 min
A Salt Glow is more of a skin treatment than a massage but many find the sessions relaxing and rejuvenating. A blend of Himalayan sea salt crystals & healing oils are applied while our practitioner “scrubs” your body to remove dead skin cells and other impurities. You will then shower off your salt blend and finish your session with locally-made & super-nourishing body butter massaged into your freshly scrubbed skin. A wonderful treat to reveal a newer, softer you.
Aromatherapy- Add to any treatment for $15
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from various plants that have unique therapeutic properties. The oils are taken in through inhalation or skin absorption during your massage. Aromatherapy amplifies your massage benefits by providing additional healing properties. Be sure to let your Massage Therapist know if you have any known allergies or sensitivities.
We strongly suggest booking treatments as far in advance as possible—especially for simultaneous treatments. Time slots fill up quickly and we cannot always guarantee they will be available if you do not book prior to your stay.
The above rates do not include gratuity.
