How early should I arrive for my treatment?
We highly recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Otherwise, arriving a half hour early will allow you ample time to change into a robe and enjoy a few moments of calm prior to your first appointment. Come in, take a deep breath and enjoy refreshments from our Latte Cafe.
What should I do when I arrive at the spa?
Check in at the front desk. You will be asked to fill out a brief confidential intake form to establish if you have any medical conditions that should be taken into consideration. The massage practitioner will read it when meeting you, discuss the style of massage you have chosen, and ask if your body has any areas that need particular attention. You may also want to let your massage practitioner know if this is your first massage, or first experience with a particular type of massage.
Are Gratuities included?
Gratuities are not included in the price of each service or gift certificate. If pleased with your service, it is customary to tip 15-18%. If your treatment did not meet your expectations, please let us know before you leave. We value your feedback and look for opportunities to improve our services and enhance your experience. Comment cards are available if you prefer to let us know in writing.
What should I wear during my massage?
Whatever makes you feel most at ease. Our massage practitioners are trained to respect your privacy, and will keep your body continually covered with a sheet — uncovering only one part at a time in order to work on it. Typically, no clothes are worn under the sheet, but many people are more comfortable wearing shorts or leaving their undergarments on.
What should I do during my massage?
Relax! Many people find that one of the best things about massage is not having to do anything at all. Allow the massage practitioner to position you without assisting him/her — be passive. This is your time. Feel free to let us know if you feel too cold or too hot; if something tickles, hurts or is not quite comfortable; or if it feels just right.
What should I do after my massage?
It is important to drink plenty of water over the next 24-48 hours to get the most benefit from your massage. This will help flush the toxins that are pushed out during your massage. Make sure to stretch before going to bed to prevent soreness and increase flexibility.
Aloe Herbal Slimming Body Wrap
How many inches can I expect to lose?
On average, 4 to 10 inches are lost with each wrap.
How does it work?
The aloe-herb solution of highly active concentrates will tone and tighten surface skin. The penetrating herbs will boost cellular activity in deeper layers to restore elasticity and firmness to skin tissues. Natural aromas relax the body while molecular osmosis for positive therapeutic effects. Each treatment cleanses toxins from the fat cells to result in a size loss wherever the fat is. No chemicals or dehydrating salts or clays are in this solution.
What is the process?
Cotton Linens which are soaked in a toxin cleansing and penetrating aloe-herb solution, then wrapped around your body while hot in a non-compression, mummy style wrap. You will then lounge comfortably in a private room for 45 minutes in the warm botanical extracts.
What will I do while I am lounging?
We will pamper you with an Eye Contour Treatment or a soothing scalp massage complimentary. You may relax or sleep for the rest of your lounging time.

How could I take advantage of my lounging time?
You may also choose to upgrade your treatment by opting out of this and choosing to add a Mini-Spa Facial for only $25.00.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Your skin will be soft and clean. No shower is needed. You will feel refreshed and inches smaller. Many times (an inch off the waist, and inch off the stomach, half-inch off the thighs) this loss is substantial and can be felt due to loose clothing fit.
Will my loss last?
Drinking 3-4 liters of water during the 24 hours after the treatment will flush the toxins from the lymph system to assure the lost size will stay off. The herbs stay in the body and keep working for three days. For continued size loss, drink 3-4 liters of water on the 2nd and 3rd day, then have another treatment on the 4th day.
What about Cellulite?
A series of 6-12 wraps will improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. A series generally removes an average of 2 full clothes sizes too!
Do I need to know anything special before my wrap?
· Before arriving, bathe with hot water and exfoliate your body with a loofah or cloth, scrub extra where you want to lose most.
You may arrive a few minutes early and receive a complimentary tanning treatment to warm your body and open the pores so the Body Wrap solution will penetrate faster. (optional)
Do not wear any lotions, oils or creams prior to your tanning treatment or wrap.
