“Perfect special occasion for mother and daughter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

My adult daughter and I did the couples massage together after a death in the family in order to relieve stress and celebrate life. I explained the situation when I scheduled the appointment and they matched our expectations impeccably. The facility was so cozy and stress reducing. The fresh fruit bites before the massage were also very welcoming. The staff was very attentive in asking about any special physical circumstances they should know about and was able to comply with my need for fragrance free oil. The aromatherapy during the massage was perfect and not overpowering at all. The robes were comfy and the carpet plush after standing up from the massage. The music was also just the right touch. We both found this to have been an extremely soothing experience.
