The staff of massage therapists and aestheticians at True Spa keeps clients’ skin smooth and muscles loose with a full menu of bodywork and beauty services. Massage therapists untie the muscle knots that have burrowed into the shoulders and back using deep-tissue techniques, and they provide all-over stress relief with gentle, flowing Swedish massage. Aestheticians use facials and body scrubs to cleanse clients’ pores and buff away dull cells. They also adhere to squeaky-clean hygienic practices during men's and women's waxes that leave nearly any part of the anatomy smoother than chocolate mousse in silk pajamas.
Edgewater Tree Barn?s trees travel from both local farms and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to decorate living rooms for the holiday season. On sturdy branches, the needles of the fraser and douglas firs twinkle magically under the rays of colorful Christmas tree lights. The trees range in height from 5 to 13 feet, allowing them to fit into tight corners or tower majestically in a stately living room or two-story cave. The lot also supplies wreaths, roping, and other seasonal decorating tools.
In addition to populating homes with seasonal greenery, the holiday helpers behind Edgewater Tree Barn also embody the spirit of the season through their ongoing charitable work. This year, they're collecting supplies for a local animal shelter and the pets in its care.
Beyond Organic Spa's philosophy is that people are a part of nature, and the best solutions for body and skincare woes are natural ones. With that tenet in mind, the staff pampers clients with eco-friendly beauty services fueled by organic products. As an exclusive partner of Éminence organic beauty products, the spa's services use serums and masks designed to safely tend to skin without harming it with additives or chemicals. The spa's filtered water keeps toxins out of the body, and all towels and linens are cleaned with natural products and detergents to keep pollutants and grass stains out of nature.
