Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworks Day Spa

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/

Wood House Day Spa

A few weeks ago I was able to have my first experience at the Woodhouse Day Spa.  To say I was excited was an understatement! I suffer from eczema year round which results in dry, flaky skinny. I am always on the prowl for an effective way to combat this condition, so when the morning came for my hydrafacial I could hardly wait to see the results!

When I arrived at the spa I was greeted by Pelin with a giant smile. She walked me back to the ladies dressing room and gave me a little tour of where to put my belongings. Hanging on the locker door was a bathrobe I was able to undress into and some comfortable slip ons. Before I keep going I have to share a little about the robes at the spa. Oh my, they are incredible! They must be the most comfortable, fluffiest, silkiest robes I have ever seen in my life. The robes are sold in the salon and I think on my next visit I just might have to bring one home. Ok lets keep going!

Take a few minutes to relax in "The Quiet Room" before your appointment with a cup of coffee or tea!

When I had secured all my belongings in a locker I walked across the hall and into the “quiet room”. The quiet room is a peaceful, cozy room designed to bring a relaxing atmosphere to the busy lady or gentleman. There is a fireplace, chairs, blankets and drinks available for you to unwind and take a few minutes to digress. 

After several minutes Jessica, my esthetician greeted me and took me back to the room where they performed the facials. As you can see in the photos above, a hydrafacial is performed by the esthetician who uses a machine to do the majority of the work. So what exactly is a hydrafacial? The hydradermabrasion treatment reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkle’s by a deep cleansing method. It also infuses your skin with antioxidants and hydrating hyaluronic acid. Throughout the process I was a little concerned there may be burning or irritation on my skin from the products, however it was very mild. Towards the end of your facial a moisturizing mask is used and while this sits on your face, your esthetician will massage your hands and feet. An added bonus! 

At the end of the facial Jessica brought me a tube that contained basically all my waste from my skin that the machine collected. I am going to be honest, it was not pretty. Not at all! The machine had collected all my impurities and was just there for my viewing pleasure. As much as I was appalled, I was able to see just how great this machine worked at clearing up my skin. Jessica kept telling me your skin looks so vibrant you should feel it! Afraid to look into the mirror and find my skin bright red and irritated (the way it has been in the past with facials) I was shocked to see my skin clearer, brighter, and smoother. I was highly impressed!

After I changed back into my clothes and checked out at the front desk, the Manger Nicole gave me a tour of the facility. She was such a sweetheart and very personable. I am very big on first impressions and Nicole made me feel right at home, like I was part of the family. She showed me each room used for massages and pedicures and I was already envisioning how great my next appointment would be! My overall experience at the spa was so wonderful! The results of my facial are still evident and it has been two weeks now. I keep sharing with friends and family just how unique this spa truly is and I am so glad that I can share my experience with you! The Woodhouse Day Spa is not just a local spa, so if you live outside of Rochester you can google the closest location to you. Take a minute to look at their website and read about the services they offer. I promise you, there will be at least one you have never heard of! If you have been fortunate enought to have visited the spa in the past leave me a comment below and tell me your favorite part!!
