I booked a spa day with my friend for my 50th birthday. We both got a manicure, pedicure and a 90 minute "deep tissue" massage. First of all, the place is beautiful inside, the staff is friendly (Nancy, Kim and Karen), however, it was freezing in the relaxation room, to the point of being uncomfortable. There was no music piped... More

Back in July my friend and I were in desperate need of pedicures but didn't want a smelly nail salon, and the only other good place was booked for weeks. So I came up with the idea of spending a little more and having a true spa experience at the amara ctr. Except for the lovely surroundings and kind staff... More

I took my sister in law and niece here to get ready for her wedding. We were so pleased. Very relaxing. I have also taken amazing yoga classes here! Love the atmosphere every time I walk in the doors.

I took my Sister the day before her wedding for a massage and manicure & pedicure. It was a wonderful way to spend time together and relax. Our nails turned out beautiful too!

Gorgeous place with awesome "spa energy". I have been here several times for facials, manicures and pedicures and I am always pleased. I recently started micro needling and am seeing good results. The new nude manicure is great. I will be returning often for this. Kim is fantastic. She does it all! They have good products also for skincare, cosmetics... More

I just finished a 90 minute massage that was so very relaxing, it was wonderful. I then proceeded to get a pedicure which was delightful, the foot massage was just an extra perk. Next on the agenda was a manicure, my nails look lovely and I enjoyed it immensely. The Amara Center is elegant, beautiful and upscale with a wonderful... More

Our local community is well know for openness to Health Conscious living, spiritual growth, and alternative healing modalities. Amara Center has been a local benefactor, offering open forums on Health, Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness, Chi-Gong, Feldencris, and other movement oriented body health activities. As well as the spa. It is a good thing, much success!

Irene, the center's event manager, made sure our visit was 1st class all the way. We had a wonderful day of massages, facials, and pedicures with a delicious spa lunch in between. We were pampered all the way with flavored waters, hot teas, fresh fruits, and a very serene environment. Highly recommended. We were prompted to go there by our... More
