Dreaming about a Facial in this Covid Environment?  We are excited to service our clients under our “Exclusive Medical Grade Shield.”  Enjoy a safe and relaxing 30-minute HydraFacial totally protected. Deep cleaning, extractions, customized peel, antioxidant serum and finishing creams – all with safety protocols under our medical grade shield.  Relax, feel safe, and focus on your face!

From our massage therapists:

Don’t worry about ventilation, our upgraded HVAC system with UV air filters goes beyond standard air safety protocols, reducing the possibilities of air particle and pathogen transmission.  So, melt away tension, anxiety, and body aches with a 60 or a 90-minute massage in a safe and secure environment.

Along with all our upgraded PPE every client still begins their service with a “Spa Experience” … a sanitizing hot towel hand treatment greets you at the door.  We can’t wait to see you!
