Colleen looked as though she had been poured into the chair. She had already had her reflexology treatment before MaryBeth and I arrived to the Spa at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa, tucked into an intimate space overlooking the pool. We were arriving for our respective services, the kick-off to a short but sweet midweek girls getaway.
As therapist Heather tenderized my slumped-over-a-computer kinks, I decided one does not need an excuse to sneak off for a re-energizing jolt such as this. It should be part of a scheduled maintenance routine. A tune-up for the soul.
Kathy at the reception desk welcomed us warmly as we sipped refreshing chilled water infused with fruits and listened to Colleen’s raves. Minutes later I crawled up on the warmed massage bed for my 50-minute therapeutic massage – something between a relaxation and deep tissue massage that Heather customized perfectly to my requests. Her able hands found and kneaded every stress knot in my neck and shoulders. A little Swedish, a little shiatsu, and a finish with hot stones: She was fully in the experience.
MaryBeth did the complete stone massage with Georgie, the spa’s able owner, and emerged when I did with that same Zen look of peace and near-stupor.
The ‘Tween Waters spa is full service with a couple’s room, dry sauna, and a complete menu of massages, facials, and salon services. What’s your excuse for not making an appointment today?
