SPA j is decorated with a peaceful elegance that welcomes clients and treats them to a natural awakening of the senses. Give your soul sack one of seven available massage options—Swedish, hot stone, deep tissue/sports, aromatherapy, prenatal, reflexology, or couples. The massagesperience begins with a thorough consultation before a certified massage therapist goes to work making mashed potatoes of the body's sore muscles. A Swedish massage helps melt muscles, erasing tension, improving blood flow, and awakening the lymphatic system. Give your body a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure with the deep tissue, or massage away the back pain that stems from carrying around a person in your body with the prenatal. De-stress your soles after marathon ziggurat climbing with reflexology's foot-focused treatment designed to ease pain and encourage relaxation. Whether there's a method to your modality madness or you consult the lobby's Buddha statue for advice on which massage to choose and which horse to bet on, a session at SPA j will loosen tight muscles, relieve stress, and ease tension. Call for an appointment.

Kids can hop to their heels' content atop an armada of inflatable play surfaces, which include bounce houses and water slides. Fun2Bounce offers renters their choice of three different bounce houses and four different wet and dry slides, from giant waves that resemble a surfing curl to of-scale castles modeled after King Arthur's original air-filled kingdom. Just as important as ensuring kiddies enjoy themselves is safeguarding them during play, which is why the rental company purchases lead-free products and scrubs them with green, organic, person-safe cleaners.
