"The Ultimate Stress-Buster"
by Amy Hegarty

Since Carolyn Lee opened her downtown getaway in 2005, Absolute Nirvana, which centers on Balinese health and beauty rituals, has been ranking at the top of superlative spa lists. As the name of this particular massage indicates, The Ultimate Stres-Buster was designed to remedy the pernicious effects of stress, from sore muscles to overall tension and anxiety. A full-body massage at heart, the treatment, which senior therapist Lauren Janson began with deep stretches of my arms and upper body, pays particular attention to the neck and shoulers. A powerfully-penetrating white-flower analgesic - which alleviates ailments from arthritius to muscle strain - was mixed with a warm oil base and massaged all over my body. Vapors from the mixture applied to my neck, chest, and shoulders eased sinus pressure, as did a warm towel draped across my face. When the massage itself ended, I retreated to a private steam room, where the analgesic waas able to penetrate even further.
