Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Day Spa?

A day spa typically provides a range of treatments that you'd find at a destination spa, like those at an island resort or a desert retreat.  There's no need to experience treatments such as body wraps and hot stone massages only during vacations -- we provide these services conveniently in-town!
