Work Downtown? Get a Complimentary Chair Massage!

To help introduce Twin Cities residents and downtown office workers to the new Ivy Spa Club, located at 201 Eleventh Street South in Minneapolis, owner Pamela Margolis is taking her show on the road by offering complimentary chair massages to downtown
Minneapolis employees.

From Nov. 27 through Dec. 21, 2007, Ivy Spa Club is sending out 20 of its top massage therapists and estheticians to the companies and skyways of downtown Minneapolis. Their mission is to ease the tense muscles in the backs, shoulders, necks, faces and hands of stressed-out downtown Minneapolis workers during the holiday season. To schedule a complimentary massage time block for your employees, contact Breanna Wagner at Ivy Spa Club at 612-343-3131 or

The complimentary chair massages are just a taste of the services that will be offered by Ivy Spa Club. Other unique treatments available on-site at Ivy Spa Club will include:
  • Caviar Facial: Scientifically advanced, age-defying treatment containing
    the latest phyto-extracts, a vegetal botoxine proven to visibly smooth
    wrinkles and firm skin.
  • Four Hand Massage: Two therapists performing a choreographed massage in
    unison that dissolves tension and transports recipient to a blissful place.
  • Ivy Ritual: Treatment begins with jojoba full body exfoliation, wrap and
    scalp massage. A hydrotherapy anti-stress milk bath follows, during which
    the recipient¹s face is cleansed, toned and moisturized. Then a water lily
    body wrap is enjoyed with a de-stress and anti-puffiness eye mask and a hand
    and foot massage. Finally, the session ends with a full body moisturizing
  • Rejuvenating Still Water Mud Mask: A cleansing and healing treatment
    practiced throughout history by many cultures. A body scrub uncovers new
    skin under a Vichy shower from multiple showerheads while the spa guest lies
    on a cushioned wet table. Then the guest luxuriates in a cocoon of warm
    aromatic pine and rich mineral mud. Treatment helps alleviate muscle aches,
    reduce tension and relieve stress.
  • Ivy Spa Club also offers manicures, pedicures and a wide array of specially tailored packages for couples, newlyweds, parents-to-be and bridal parties. For the busy downtown worker there are several lunch express services.

    In early December, spa owner Pamela Margolis launches her unique luxury destination spa located at 201 Eleventh Street South in downtown Minneapolis, at the historic Ivy Tower, on the second floor of the new Hotel Ivy, a Starwood Luxury Collection® Hotel. The 17,000 square-foot Ivy Spa Club will offer world-class spa services to soothe and relax, and fitness options tailored to invigorate and energize members and day guests alike.

Facility features that members and day guests will enjoy at Ivy Spa Club include heavenly relaxation areas, dedicated couples¹ suites and hydrotherapy treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas, a co-ed whirlpool, Vichy shower, a cold plunge shower, Water TileTM shower by Kohler in the women¹s locker room, and much more.

    Because the historic Ivy Tower is a valued treasure to the Minneapolis area, spa owner, Pamela Margolis has taken care to use recycled and renewable materials wherever possible ­ from natural hemp uniforms for the staff to bamboo flooring, cork upholstery and teak custom furniture; and from organic menu selections in the cafĂ© to botanicals and natural essential oils used in Ivy Spa Club¹s Signature Formula line of body care products.
