Great Experience ~ Highly recommend
I bought a 75 minute coconut infusion massage through Living Social along with my daughter. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The atmosphere is very unique. The waiting area is a tea bar with dim lights and relaxing music. I was offered complimentary tea or water while I filled out my paperwork. I have chemical sensitivities, and when I told the receptionist, she had my massage therapist, Mitzi, come out and let me test the oil that was going to be used. She understands holistic medicine, so she was very open to what I was doing. I was concerned about the time since with recent Groupon and Living Social spa services I have not been given the entire time that was paid for. The receptionist assured me that we would be given the full 75 minutes. When I went back to undress, Mitzi said that they allow five minutes to dress and undress. That's fair. Mitzi asked me about the pressure that I wanted and she did a great job working out the stress in my muscles. I don't like a really firm touch, but something in between. She did great and did not talk to me during the massage which is something they ask you if you want on the paperwork. The spa is very clean and the rooms are dark...no windows. The sheets were clean and fresh on the massage table. The music was very relaxing and I was pleasantly surprised when she finished to look at the clock and see that she gave me the full 70 minutes. My daughter was there with me getting the same massage in another room, and her experience was fantastic as well. I live in Atlanta, but I will be looking for more deals at this spa and will plan to go back when I am in town. After the massage, we were given a hot tea of our choice. They have a very large selection. The Almond Cookie Green Tea was fabulous. My daughter bought a bag to take home. Overall, it was fun mother/daughter day out and I hope to go back soon.
