Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Massage Elements of Hot Stones
Bamboo, cooling gel, lavender oil, orchid scrubs, microdermabrasion, hot stones. As if massages weren't relaxing enough, the team behind Massage Elements of Hot Stones make sessions even more decadent with these and other add-ons. Nowhere is the spa's luxury more pronounced than in its signature massage, which gets its designation from the body brushing, aromatherapy, foot wraps, foot and back scrubs, facial, and complimentary take-home gift involved. As comprehensively pampering as it is, this package is far from Massage Elements's only extras-bolstered treatment. Other massages incorporate the likes of warm bamboo, Thai herbal poultices, and small, space-harvested suns that warm muscles as they orbit the body. These can be added to an array of modalities, which include Swedish massage, Indian scalp massage, and Hawaiian lomi-lomi massage.
