Day Spas

Hand and Stone Massage, various locations

With several Miami locations, Hand and Stone Massage offers guests the opportunity to choose from a variety of massages. If you need something restorative after a workout, go for a deep tissue, hot stone or sports massage.

Relax with a traditional Swedish massage or a soothing Himalayan salt stone massage. Memberships are available, so you can plan a regular massage schedule.
