Nicole was awesome! I can take VERY firm pressure and she was perfect! She was able to find my painful areas without me directing her where to go. After my massage, I had the best 60 minute facial that I’ve ever experienced. Highly recommend!

I had the Just for You Seclusion package- 1hr massage, 45min facial and a 15min hair treatment/ head massage. It was incredibly relaxing, rejuvenating and well worth the cost. Natalie was a great massage therapist. Highly recommended.
