A little piece of heaven...NReagan Spa

Today I had the pleasure to step into NReagan Day Spa for a massage. First, the staff was so friendly and the lobby was inviting, dimly lit and filled with must-have top of the line products, including their own superb line of products.

After filling out a brief standard questionaire (with added questions as to my preference of talking level, pressure level, aromatherapy and music type), I was scurried upstairs to the locker room. I had my own locker, not with a lock but with my own secret code. Within this lair were showers, a steam room and areas with sinks, mirrors and complementary products: styling products, deodorant, lotions...

I put on my big fluffy robe and stepped out to yet another waiting area with oversized striped chairs and a view of the beautiful ocean walking distance away, just across the street. They even have food here, although I did not partake (next time.)

After a brief wait, I was taken into the massage room. To my delight, the bed was warmed. I started face down. She told me to take in a deep breath...peppermint, sinus-opening, tingling peppermint. It was just a few whiffs and then it was straight to the massage. She spent what seemed like forever rubbing my back in long flowing stress-reducing strokes. She moved onto my arms, my legs, flipped me over and began again, adding a much needed rub of stressed out neck, head and scalp. After she finished each area, she placed a warm towel over the area (back, feet, for example), wiping them clean. When she was done, she placed the robe across me and went off to get me some water.

But the experience was far from over. Next was the shower with my choice of three different types of shower heads and complementary shampoo, conditioner and soap. Amazing. I could have tried the steam room but did not. I relished the shower experience and got dressed and went downstairs, making sure to drink plenty of water, of course.

On the way down, I took a self-guided tour through some of their other areas where services for hair, face, nails, etc. were taking place. It was a much more busy atmosphere as opposed to the tranquility found above.

Back to the lobby, relieved, able to breathe deeply, relaxed and happy. I immediately bought the apple lotion, my favorite. They come out with a different flavor I belive monthly. It is great! I wrote a previous blog about it a while ago.

They have a whole spa menu with facials, paraffin, mani/ pedi, hair styles--red carpet treatment all the way. I am ready to go back again!
