Body treatments range from an activating scrub, to a Detoxifying Sea Mineral Wrap. If you are a slight bit claustrophobic, the mummy-like wrap might not be your favorite treatment. As for me, I enjoyed my Swedish Massage, as the deep relaxation soothes mind and body. This classic massage uses long strokes to reduce tension, soothe sore muscles and improve circulation. It had been a while since I had the standard Swedish massage and I loved it!
A half-hour scalp and hair treatment treatment followed my perfectly wonderful Swedish massage was superb. The full-service day spa is the largest one I have visited on the East Coast. The spa offers treatments ranging from bridal services, salon services and traditional spa services.
"A Better Place is somewhere we all strive to be in life. We wish we had a better job, a better figure, a bigger bank balance. What someone perceives as a better place is as unique as each individual them self. Our belief is that to get to that better place we must start from within. A Better Place to Be Day Spa offers a comprehensive menu of spa services and products along with self care education tailored to each individual client’s needs to help them feel good, look good and maintain balanced lives," says my Massage Therapist.
