The relaxation lounge calls. It’s a special area at Serenity Spa and Massage where the staff encourages guests to spend time before or after their appointment. Here, clients lounge in a cozy chair in front of a crackling fire. Tea, coffee, or cucumber water wash down scones, while relaxing music washes down content read from a shelf of books. The idea behind the relaxation lounge is to further separate guests’ minds from such outside stress as work problems and the tiny gnome who follows them around all day, cackling in a 6-inch voice.
Of course, the appetizers or desserts aren’t why people frequent their favorite restaurant, and at Serenity Spa and Massage, the main course is as delicious as the soothing relaxation lounge experience. A four-person staff—pooling more than two decades of experience—renders a full slate of services, including massages, facials, and waxing. Specifically, the therapists might perform a deep-heat massage in which warm pads loosen muscles before the practitioner banishes aches and stiffness with relaxing strokes.
