Essential Oils: The Herb Bar

• Eucalyptus the oil of respiration 

• Peppermint the oil of digestion

Breathing essential oils directly from the bottle through the nose.


Add seven or more drops of essential oils as bath is drawn.


Essential oils can be diluted with other oils (i.e. almond, apricot, grapeseed) and massaged into the skin

Facial: Mecca Gym & Spa 

Whether it’s your lunch break, on the way home from work or just a quick weekend pick-me-up, Mecca’s new mini treatments will help solve common skincare issues from breakouts to hangovers. Perfect for travelers and on-the-go locals. 

AFM’s Choice: The “Too Much Fun” Treatment: 

After all the music and dancing, one too many drinks, and the Texas sun on a three-day music festival, it’s time to pop in for a treatment that will revive your skin. Start with a steam to detox and clear out the dirt. Then exfoliate the skin with a light propeel, followed by a soothing serum-filled sheet mask that is cooling and hydrating. The remaining serum is infused into your skin, and to wrap up, a red LED light is run over your skin to dull any redness. In nearly no time at all, you feel relaxed and ready to get back into your regular routine. 

Full Body Relaxation: Hiatus Spa + Retreat

October Monthly Retreat: Smashing Pumpkin 

If you’re the kind of person who breaks out your boots and races to the nearest Starbucks to order a Pumpkin Spice Latte as soon as the first leaf falls to the ground, then this limited-time treatment is one you won’t want to miss. To begin, you’ll soak your feet in a shallow bath, while deciding on one of three essential oils (all with distinct scents of the season) to use during your session. After transitioning to the massage table, an enzyme masque with organic pumpkin, clove and cinnamon is activated with effervescent kombucha and briskly massaged into your body, creating a warming exfoliating blend to scrub away dull, damaged layers and reveal the bright and glowing skin beneath. A warm Vichy shower cleanses away impurities, so your skin is left smooth, brilliant and beautiful. The final encore to your journey is a delightfully distinct orange and kombucha cocktail.
