How could I resist? Especially when Al offered to pay. I booked my services 2 days before we arrived, and I suggest that you do this as well. It may just have been because this is the weekend before Valentine’s Day, but by Thursday there was already nothing available at all for Saturday. I booked a scrub and a facial for 2pm, and Kasey ordered a manicure and a pedicure for the same time period
We arrived about 20 minutes early and Kasey was escorted to the relaxation room to await her service. I was shown to the locker room and given my robe and jelly slippers. After changing, I joined Kasey in the relation room. It is dimly lit with wicker furniture and an artificial fireplace in each of the two rooms. There is a pot of hot water and lots of tea choices as well as some granola bars. There are magazines to read while you wait.
I hardly had time to get comfortable when Stacey arrived and asked if I minded going early. Not me. She showed me to the room and explained the shower to me. I opted for the body only not the over head and she explained everything that she was going to be doing. She gave me the optional sexy paper bikinis, and then left the room while I removed the robe and positioned myself face down on the table.
This is the first time I have ever been brushed. This helps to exfoliate the skin. Then the warm scrub was rubbed all over my body, one section at a time. My unruly hair refused to be covered by a hairnet so at one point I had to hold it while she did my back. I was then left alone to take my shower, and then placed myself back under the sheet on the table.
Now it was time for the moisture cream. By now my whole body felt as soft as a babies bottom. It took a lot of effort on my part to get up and put my robe back on and head for the relaxation room. After a cup of green tea I was restored enough to happily follow Carmen into another room for my facial and eyebrow waxing (ouch).
The eyebrows were done first and then my eyes were covered, and steam was applied to my face. In the meantime, my hands and feet were massaged with lotion, placed in plastic and inserted into warmers. It’s a very decadent feeling. Carmen asked if I would allow extraction (sure) and then began to clear out any clogged pores. This was followed by the application of a gel exfoliate, and then my face was buffed with a mechanical brush. This was followed by warm rinse, and a moisturizing mask, then a facial massage. The last thing out were my soft feet.
I dressed again and headed back to the relaxation room. If I was any mroe relaxed I would have been out cold. Kasey arrived with her toes done in a French manicure and her nails a glowing gold tone.
Both of us dreaded heading back out into the cold snow, and ending our special afternoon, but all good things must end. With tip, my afternoon cost $201.20, Kasey’s was $140. Both of us felt it was an afternoon well spent.
