RELAX Let stress melt away at The NOW Massage (thenowmassage.com), a beloved wellness destination coming to Dallas this month. “The NOW was founded on the principle that in today’s fast-paced society self-care is a necessity, not a luxury,” says co-founder Gara Post. “We designed the boutiques to feel like an oasis for recovery and relaxation and look forward to introducing Dallas to our inspiring wellness brand.” A menu of table massages featuring custom enhancements, like herbal heat therapy and crystal healing, is paired with soothing take-home offerings including the brand’s signature jasmine coconut candles.
EXPLORE Dive into the raw beauty exposed by French Swiss artist Julian Charrière in his premier solo exhibition in the U.S. Visit the Dallas Museum of Art this month as it unveils Concentrations 63: Julian Charrière, Towards No Earthly Pole.
