It's quiet in Aqua the Day Spa. No cell phones or pagers are allowed to remain active in either of the two locations, so all you hear is your pulse slowing to a steady, soothing beat and the tiny noises made as expert hands open bottles of designer beauty products. Open since 1998, owners Susan and Ralph Barnette struck the right, Enya-like chord in 2003, when they first earned the title of Best Day Spa in the Jackson Free Press's annual "Best Of" roundup. The team of aestheticians and massage therapists have swept that title every year since, deflating the competition in proportion to lifting spirits. Paraben-free Skin Authority and scented Tokyomilk tonics nourish skin with vitamin-rich Moroccan clay and soothing mango, or exfoliate dead cells with bamboo salves scented with ylang-ylang. The staff's nimble hands blend these into custom treatments, including those to combat aging and the strange shadows creeping over men's skin, and work aromatherapeutic elixirs into muscles with nine different massage modalities. OPI and Shellac nail polish transform hands and feet into fashion accessories, a project helped along by smoothing wax.

St. Dominic's mission-based health care delivers high-tech healing services with a human touch, promoting the well-being of body, mind, and spirit with each treatment.

The spa’s trained massage therapists help relieve stress and tension, while increasing blood flow to out-of-reach extremities, and imbuing limbs with Gumby-like pliability and poise. A relaxing ambience pervades the spa, which also provides complimentary valet parking.
Situated inside an historic house, Powder Room builds on the vintage charm of its surroundings with elegant arm chairs and brocade fabrics. Still, there are enough modern touches here to create a luxurious spa atmosphere that anyone can feel comfortable in. The spa's private rooms house relaxing massage beds and professional products used to cleanse pores during facials. There are also two nail stations where technicians outfit hands and feet with vibrant colors, ombre glitter, or protective knight gloves. As if all that weren't enough, freshly brewed coffee and tea fill the air with soothing aromas.
