First, I’ll give a little background. On September 26, 2017 I lost my husband after a hard fought 18 month battle with cancer. Needless to say the period of time that I was his caregiver and his ultimate loss were very stressful. I decided to treat myself to a relaxing massage to help me get through the funeral. I’d been to Paradise Spa many times before so I called and spoke to Megan. When I explained that the stress had caused my Fibromyalgia to flare up she suggested that I try BAT therapy with Dan. She gave me a brief explanation and even though I was skeptical, was willing to give it a try. I had nothing to lose. I noticed a difference after the first treatment and have been going pretty much bi-weekly since. The treatment can be painful and I’m sore for a day or two, but I’ve definitely noticed a permanent reduction in my pain levels. During one of my recent treatments I mentioned to Dan that I had been to the doctor and was told I had tendonitis in my left arm which struck me as odd since this isn’t my dominant hand. We decided to dedicate that treatment to the arm. It was a little sore the day after, but by mid-week the swelling at my elbow and almost all of the pain were gone. I no longer had to wear an elbow band. As Dan and I were talking during the treatment, he asked if I had done anything different that might effect that arm. The only thing I could think of was that my husband and I had switched sides of the bed during his illness, but that was months ago. Dan asked if it was my left side that was then facing toward my husband and yes it was. It was also the arm that was nearest him and reached out to him during the two weeks in the hospital and hospice just prior to his passing. Dan explained that grief can manifest itself in ways we aren’t even aware of and my left arm had been taking on some of my husbands horrific pain and as I try to sort through my grief it made itself known in that arm. Since nothing else had changed this makes perfect sense to me. I HIGHLY recommend that anyone suffering from any type of chronic panic pain give this a try. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

We recently visited Treasure Island, FL on vacation. We treated ourselves to a massage, and discovered Paradise Spa here on TripAdvisor. We had outstanding massages, the facility, and staff were very professional. We would highly recommend Paradise Spa!

I stumbled upon this place in a google search while visiting family in the Madeira Beach area. We booked two Swedish massages (one each), and were both pleased with the services we received. From the time we entered, we were made to feel comfortable, offered water, and seated in a quaint relaxation room. Our therapists were available in a timely manner, and were pleasant and welcoming.

The rooms were clean, and offered a fantastic relaxing spa environment. The coconut used during the service were light and not overly fragrant, and made my skin feel soft the rest of the day. I am sensitive to fragrances and most product, so this was a relief. The massage itself was great - the right amount of pressure, and the therapist checked with me regularly to make sure that the pressure was acceptable.

At checkout, my travel companion was talking with Corey about a recommendation for a holistic follow-up treatment which he and his therapist were knowledgeable in.

Finding a spa in a town you are not familiar with is not easy to do - we hit the jackpot with this one. I would certainly return each time we visit the area.
