St. Croix This Week / Treat Yourself
Believing in the "healing power of massage therapy," Debra Aronstein and Margaret Luce opened Tropical Therapy 22 years ago! "We opened up a very small place in Gallows Bay, and a year later we had more business than we could handle," says Debbie. They soon moved to a second, larger location and brought in more therapists to help with the growing clientele. Five years ago, they once again outgrew their space and opened the Full- Service Spa they have today - St. Croix's largest with eight treatment rooms, two estheticians, and six massage therapists.
The therapists at Tropical Therapy are licensed in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Rolfing, Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage, Pregnancy Massage, and Acupuncture. T heir licensed estheticians are skilled in Body Polishes and Body Wraps. They have been the recipients of twelve "Best of St. Croix" awards, by the readers of the Daily News, over the years.
Debbie points out that, "not only do local clients continually rebook because of the care, professionalism, and knowledge that Tropical Therapy delivers, but tourists also often make this their first stop on their vacation to get rid of aches and pains that they've brought here with them."
Tropical Therapy carries and uses only the finest dermalogica products and excels at Facial Treatments! "Each facial is customized for the client and only products designed for their skin type are used. From soothing botanicals, to the newest antiaging advances, we team up with dermalogica to make sure everyone leaves their facial treatment with new, improved skin!" says Debbie. If you want to take it up a notch, they also offer microdermabrasion.

This trademark treatment involves the use of bamboo as extensions of a therapistís fingers during a specialized massage. The pieces are warmed to quickly penetrate and relax muscles. A variety of movements, drawing from Swedish and deep-tissue, dissolve knots and relieve tension.
Nathalie Cecilia, the creator and master of Bamboo Massage Therapy, was born in Nimes, South France. After receiving a Masterís degree in Philosophy and Languages from the Universitee Des Lettres De Montpellier, she taught, did translations, and traveled Europe and the world before deciding to change directions.
