The Big Easy Does Massage

Massage voodoo in New Orleans

A classic Swedish massage can be lovely, but there are times—especially when you’ve traveled somewhere moody and otherworldly like The Big Easy—when a more unusual experience fits.

Enter The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans VooDoo Ritual, which casts a magic spell on pliable guests. To the rhythmic drumming and chanting of ancient priestesses, guests are kneaded with locally crafted turmeric, lemongrass, cypress, absinthe and jasmine-stuffed herbal poultices, exorcising demons and evoking the essence of the city.

After all, the morning after downing some tall red Hurricanes, you will need all the rejuvenation you can get. ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/new-orleans
