A friend says that when she was in Japan, she got her first facial and it was amazing. But then, when she came back to the States, she got another, and it was not so amazing. What kind of Japanese facial did she get, and is it possible to get one in the States?

She describes the one in Japan as “a bunch of deep massaging with knuckles, and almost painfully hot steams, and squeezing of pores, and so on,” and the one back home as “a bunch of light rubbing of scented oils and new age music. I left feeling greasy. Total bs.”
So, is there a name or brand or signifier for the awesome version that she could look for here? Also, if there are any recommendations for places either in the Twin Cities, Minnesota or Albuquerque, New Mexico, that would be super helpful.
