HEALING TOUCH: Whether you’re in the mood for the hour-long Traditional Usui Reiki (Japanese energy balancing to help the body heal itself), the 30-minute Total Bliss Swedish Massage (easing tension with a revitalizing touch) or the 25-minute Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, The Treatment Room, one of Kingston’s best spa secrets, promises to have you feeling like a brand-new you. The establishment’s extensive menu lists a range of services (think reflexology, personalized organic facials) and alternative therapies (restoring the mind-body balance, gentle massages) designed to soothe and revitalize. Operated by wellness-etiquette doyenne Mary Ann Girvan, The Treatment Room (Unit 15A Seymour Park, Old Hope Road, Kingston) offers customized sessions from 15 minutes up. Standard treatments are half-an-hour, an hour, or an hour-and-a-half. All treatments are by appointments only. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 927-7341 (landline)/792-1352 (mobile).
STYLE & SUBSTANCE: The all-important conversation about the future of the Jamaican fashion industry moves to the Edna Manley College later this month for an Arts Management seminar series titled “The Evolution of Fashion – Designing for the Future.” Attendees will hear from panelists and industry experts like Courtney Washington, Laura Lee Jones, Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger and the MoDA Market’s Kerry-Ann Clarke (above). The session is set for Wednesday, April 19, at the college’s seminar room, commencing at 4pm.
