I received a gift certificate for a facial and a massage from a dear friend last year, and it was about to expire, so I went.
Samina gave me a signature facial. When she asked me how long since my last facial, I admitted a year ago. Actually it'd been six months but because I always find facials to be a waste of time and money, I don't go unless prompted by another. Let me just say, I'm a fan of getting a facial, if Samina is the aesthetician! She is a warm, gentle person who really cared about my skin. I felt completely and utterly pampered by her skill and technique and I intend to make her service a regular part of my health care.
Afterward, I had a massage from Terri. I do get myself a massage on a regular basis so I was wasn't expecting anything special. The truth is, I never had a more pleasant experience. Not only did she find tiny little places that needed attention that others haven't, which she diligently worked at, but I enjoyed a conversation with her, at those moments when conversation happened. Both women really like their profession, where they work, and their clients. The studio and it's spa service rooms are all very comfortable, clean and peaceful. I am looking forward to going back and plan to buy a gift certificate for another friend to 'share the wealth' of this wonderful place.
