Mental Massaging

You go to the spa to indulge your senses. Massage incorporates touch, aromatherapy is all about smell, the beautiful surroundings celebrate your sight, the new-age music appeals to your hearing, and if you’re lucky, there’s tea, coffee, or — ahhh — cocktails to tickle your taste buds. But we’re willing to bet you’ve never had a spa day that caters to your sixth sense. Our psychic friends should count their stars, because Espa at Acqualina will host Intuitive Escape with Todd Hershey. Hershey, a celebrity clairvoyant, will offer readings for four days, kicking off with a series of morning seminars that begin Friday at 9 a.m.

If coffee and pastries don’t pair well with tapping into your psyche, you’re invited to get your reading up close and personal: A two-hour Espa treatment accompanied by a half-hour reading will set you back $295, or you can get 15 minutes of psychic insight with an hourlong treatment for $150. If you need less back rub and more advice for the future, you can schedule a private reading — $125 for a half-hour, $200 for 60 minutes. Which might seem like a small price to pay after Hershey tells you about the financial windfall you’re about to come into. To make your reservation, call 866-914-5458 or visit
