A few weeks ago I was able to experience a relaxing massage at Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworks Day Spa in Gates. I was very much looking forward to having a relaxing hour to myself with no kids, husband or work. When I first walked into the day spa I was greeted by Jamie with a big smile. Jamie is the owner and as friendly as can be. They say you have seven seconds to make a first impression and Jamie made me feel like I had been a friend for years.
She gave me a brief tour of the spa where the services range from massages to facials and even nails. Within the spa there are seven different employees that work. If you visit the website you can read a little bio about each woman, getting to know them a little better.
Before my massage, Jamie walked me next door to her best friend’s hair Salon, Tina Cimino Studio. The two ladies in the near future will be adjoining the two buildings together. The studio had a very modern feel to it with affordable prices. Tina was just as welcoming and friendly to meet.
The appointment I made with Jamie was an hour, full body massage. I have received many massages in the past and I can honestly say Jamie was one of, it not my favorite. She had the perfect amount of pressure and was very in tune to my concerns with my back. I don’t EVER fall asleep unless I am at home in my bed and I caught myself multiple times dozing off on the table. Jamie not only made me feel comfortable the entire time but did a fantastic job working out my knots in my upper back.
If you are someone who loves a little “me” time but does not always have the finances, the spa was very reasonably priced. I am very much looking forward to going back within the near future. Maybe after all the holiday food has had time to settle :) If you are a Rochester Resident, take a minute to peek at the website. http://www.massage-bodyworks.com/
