I've gotten 2 massages here now. The experience is relaxing and easy. Whenever I leave, my brain is absolutely useless and they do a great job at being understanding and reminding me of basic math

I visited the Retreat for the first time, and I was so pleased with my experience! The environment is tranquil and inviting. The front desk person (sorry, I didn't get her name) was so pleasant and welcoming. My masseuse, April, was so pleasant, knowledgeable, and patient. She made me feel so comfortable and really did wonders on my whole body! Her skills were amazing, and my body has never felt so relaxed! I will be back when possible!

Had an excellent time getting a massage and facial here for my birthday. The receptionist worked with me a couple weeks prior to ensure I could get two appointments back to back. Excellent customer service and response times. Massage worked wonders for my back that was full of knots and the facial was just your basic facial. Not many bells and whistles to report there but not bad. Facialist was kind and friendly as was the masseuse. I do wish it had more of a spa feel in the form of a back waiting area or something similar. In between services I had to get changed fully and go back out to reception and wait for my next service that began only a few minutes later to then have to get changed again. Not ideal when trying to stay in a zen relaxed mood when the check in desk is constantly busy and the chairs are right beside the door to the street. Obviously this was not enough to ruin my time or anything of that nature, but enough to warrant 4/5. I would return for one treatment at a time in the future.

Beautiful, clean space in a convenient location. We thoroughly enjoyed our therapeutic massages and also get to feel great about supporting a local small business. Thank you Paula & August!

I absolutely love coming to the Retreat. August is a phenomenal massage therapist. I have gotten both relaxation and trigger point massage and they have both been so helpful. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. But beyond that, it is so clear he loves his job. Highly recommend!

As many have commented, having to exit the back and sit in the front lobby while youre waiting on a second service sort of disrupts the mood and relaxation. BUT, my masseuse didn't force me to. Since the room wasn't being used right after me she allowed me to stay until I could start my facial. Both individuals asked if I had any problem areas, asked how I was feeling and worked to adapt and make me feel comfortable. I would absolutely go back.

My mother in law got me a service here and I found it to be relaxing and fun. For someone never going to this kind of spa I didn’t know what to think going into it. Once there it was clean, odd set up for entertaining and exit however it was a lovely and relaxing service
