Ahhhhhhh the Relax Spa! Oh, how I have missed you and the relaxation and rejuvenation you offer! Today I am seeing Judy, one of the massage therapists here at Rumors. I’ve read many raving reviews of Judy, so of course she is the one I had to have my first massage with!
I couldn’t contain my excitement when I walked into those glorious I still can’t believe how peaceful the spa is! I can feel the weight of the world lift off of my shoulders. I especially love the handful of dried fruit and walnuts with some lovely tea. I still need to try out the steam shower and sauna!
Judy meets me in the waiting area and escorts me to the massage room. When we are entering “The Quiet Zone” the music is extremely soothing and peaceful and the sound machine made it seem like I was in the rainforest at a waterfall (tip: make sure you use the restroom before going in)! The massage table is custom heated and is quite heavenly. Judy came back into the room to start the massage and that’s literally when the magic happened.
Since this was my first massage, I felt a little vulnerable under the sheets and I was nervous about feeling exposed at times. Judy was an absolute rock-star making me feel comfortable and explaining what was going to happen during my appointment. She started with me facing up and as she worked on my face and head she told me that I clench my jaw. (I didn’t realize that I clenched my jaw – but now I notice it all the time!) When she moved down to my feet, she actually told me that I should drink more water because of some (fancy word) that I had some crystals and drinking would get rid of them. I couldn’t believe that I would find all of this out from a massage!
The hour flew by and I couldn’t believe it when Judy gently told me to take my time getting up, drink the water that was given to me, and eat some walnuts from the spa lounge. I took my time and when I was dressed, she was waiting outside the door and asked how I was feeling (she really cared about how I was feeling and if everything was alright with the service). Her caring personality truly hit the spot with me and I seriously can’t wait to have another service with Judy – maybe a wrap in the fall!
