Massage Under The Stars at The Betsy Wellness Garden
Champagne oils, music, candlelight, and rose petals complete this couple’s massage, which takes place on The Betsy's oh-so relaxing rooftop underneath the moonlight. If you’re an early bird, beware: this treatment only happens at 11 p.m. ending at midnight with a new day.
Massage Under The Stars, $325, available at The Betsy Wellness Garden, 1440 Ocean Drive; 305-531-6100.
Detox Cleanse at The Standard Spa
For a detox program that’s way more enjoyable than juicing, there’s this toxin releasing treatment.

Plus, it includes body brushing and a belly massage.
Detox Cleanse, $185 (75 minutes), available at The Standard Spa, 40 Island Avenue; 305-673-1717.
Hot Stone Envy at Massage Envy
While this giant chain might sound a little like an assembly line, the South Miami location has a secret weapon — and her name is Aimee Gonzalez. If you’re of the school of thought that a massage can never be too deep, Gonzalez’s seemingly endless power might prove you wrong. As a former athlete and with a background in physical therapy, her approach is both therapeutic and results-driven. This Miami native walks the entire table as she throws her athletic body into every stroke, leaving you with entirely fulfilled expectations.
Hot Stone Envy, $49 (intro price), available at Massage Envy, 6927 Red Road; 305-662-2622.
