Anyone feeling a little stressed should head underground to the new subterranean ESPA AT THE JOULE, deep in the heart of downtown Dallas. In partnering with the European-based holistic-spa company, the boutique hotel has heightened the world-class experience it offers guests, with a luxurious space perfectly suited to the spa’s prevalent energy theme. Offerings include European temperature-change amenities for pre- and post-treatment (crystal steam room, sauna, ice fountain) and atmospheric lighting that eases the mind during signature treatments featuring unique twists, like rose-quartz crystals to cool and calm the skin during facial massages and forehead oil pours for the ultimate in relaxation. Men’s treatment options, mineral makeup application, manicures and pedicures, and advanced skin-care services such as LED light therapy and microdermabrasion are also available, and everything is anchored by ESPA’s renowned signature products.
