Here’s how to completely obliterate any traces of it ever existing...
Take a deep breath and let it out slowly for The Holiday Toddy Mystic Journey, 75 minutes of bourbon-laced, caramel-coated massagery, available now at Qua at Caesars.
Think of this as a cocktail to take the holiday edge off. Except that instead of you drinking it, a professional toucher of bodies is going to pour it all over you and work out those lower-back issues with it.
This begins, as so many of the best things in life do, with you disrobing. Then lying down on the table—so far, pretty massage-like. You’ll start out with a little agave nectar worked around your spine. There’ll be oohs and aahs of pleasure (most likely yours).
Next up: a bourbon-and-brown-sugar body scrub. It’s about exfoliation, epidermal radiance and being covered in hooch. They’ll finish off the massage with a pepper-caramel body milk and then wrap you up in a cocoon of hot towels.
And as you lie there, burrito-esque, drifting in and out of consciousness, they’ll top you off with a classic facial and a scalp rub.
Now just 45 minutes at 350 degrees, some light basting, and you should be ready to serve...
