Review: Hidden inside a Church Street brownstone, the Elmwood’s little sister offers city dwellers a glimpse of cottage country. Muskoka chairs and two cedar cabins for treatments adorn the closed-in terrace. Try the Siam Herbal Tension Release ($165), a 14th-century Thai treatment that scrubs skin using ground coriander seed and nutmeg, among other spices. Warm compresses of Thai herbs ensue after the gritty treatment—the heat generated relaxes the muscles to promote a deeper massage, leaving you knot-free.
