That should tell you something..
That was until I found Refine Day Spa in Clinton, NJ. When I first found Refine, they were in Pittstown, NJ, but have since moved to the quaint, historic downtown area of Clinton, NJ.
After the holiday rush I decided I needed some "Me" time and wanted to be pampered by only the best, and Refine Day Spa was the first place I thought of. After all, they are professionals in the art of:
- Professional Skin Care
- Massage Therapy
- Hair Design
- Nail Care
Upon this visit I opted for the 90-minute "Integrated Massage", which is an integration of deep tissue, Swedish and stretching techniques to relieve pain caused by strain, stress & inflammation.
From the moment I walked in I felt like my stress was parked outside the front door as you can't help but feel a sudden air of relief when you walk inside. When you walk inside Refine Day Spa your inner most senses take over, no doubt entranced in a magical, relaxing spell. From the beautiful smells of essential oils to the soft, rhythmic relaxation music, you enter into softly lit rooms and welcoming, peaceful decor. I let the sounds of their soothing waterfalls whisk me into a place of essential relaxation.
I was then introduced to Jocelyn, my massage therapist, who I will request from this point forward. She is an artist of soft tissue manipulation taking great care to explain her technique and confirm whether her style was too firm or too soft. A testament to fine customer service. Needless to say, after 90-minutes, I was like melted butter on the heated bed.
There was no rushing, not a hurried moment during my visit and that is the way it should be when you are trying to refine yourself, right? I had the pleasure of meeting Odelia Hallam, owner of Refine Day Spa, and was sincerely impressed by her genuine, caring personality making sure that my visit was exactly what I expected. Indeed, Odelia, my expectations were surpassed!
In fact, when taking into consideration that a human has five traditional senses, and all five of mine were quenched, I'd say my visit was a complete success. How were my senses pleased?
Sight: By the shear elegance of Refine Day Spa's decor, lighting, soft & inviting furniture and warm burning candles.
Hearing: Softly spoken staff, soothing, relaxation music by David Young, the sounds of nature inspired water fountains situated in all the rooms.
Taste: Cool, refreshing water that was offered directly after my massage.
Smell: Calming essential oils that permeated the walls delivering an immediate relief to the outside stress and invites you in for more.
Touch: The effects of my massage lasted four days afterwards leaving me feel exhilarated, refreshed, and stress free.
