Day Spa activities in Rio De Janeiro
Although better known for its lush spa resort in Friburgo, Maria Bonita does offer a full range of treatments for those who'd rather not trek out to the countryside. Options at the Ipanema branch include aromatherapy baths, deep tissue massage, shiatsu and acupuncture. There is also a new organic and raw food restaurant on-site.
Hidden in the back of a small shopping center, Empório Zen offers shiatsu, acupuncture, aromatherapy, Ayurvedic massage, Reiki and other treatments. A one-hour massage costs R$80.
