Anyone can get a Swedish massage. But why not try something more … adventurous? Southwest Florida has an abundance of luxury spas, some of which offer some fairly unique ways to relax.


A wine and chocolate pairing

Incorporate the essence of your favorite indulgences into your massage. DiVine Spa in Naples offers vine-therapy spa treatments: massages that use creams made with pinot noir grapes. Green Leaf Day Spa in Fort Myers, meanwhile, offers a massage that incorporates a chocolate-scented body scrub and facial. mybodytlc.com, thegreenleafdayspa.com


Relax with CBD

CBD (a chemical derived from hemp) has become a trendy product. You’ll find it in everything from coffee to skin lotions. Now, spas are even incorporating it into their massages. The Stillwater Spa at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point offers a CBD pain relief massage that uses the oil in unison with sage and lavender to relax the body and mind. hyatt.com


Not one, not two, not three

When two hands aren’t enough, try four. The Woodhouse in Naples offers a signature four-handed massage: Two massage therapists perform a choreographed massage together, hitting all the right spots at once. woodhousespas.com


Right foot forward

And here you thought a massage could only be done with hands. The Om Spa in Naples offers an Ashiatsu or foot-pressure massage. The massage therapist balances on bars overhead and applies pressure to your body with their feet. In this case, having someone walk all over you isn’t such a bad thing. theomspa.com


Experience BETAR

Actually, forget touching at all. The Spa at Sanibel Harbour features the BETAR (Bio Energetic Transduction Aided Resonance) experience. Just relax while the BETAR system sends soundwaves across your body. Your chakras will be pleased. marriott.com
