    Now, I am debating between the body wrap or a massage. I am not really claustriphobic so I don't think that will be a big deal. I'm honestly a little wierded out by getting a massage, but I'm guessing it's becuase I have never had a professional one. I am very ticklish, so I don't know if I would be able to relax enough to fully enjoy it, kwim? Geez, what an awful dilema I am having.
    Gotta love dilemmas like that

    Wraps are my favorite and all the ones I've had include some massage. Some include scalp, face and foot massages while you're wrapped and others include ~15-20 minutes of massage during the lotion application afterwards.

    A pedicure is $225? Really?!? What in Heaven's name do they do? I've been to nice spas and $90 is the most I've ever seen a pedi cost. If the prices are that crazy, I'd do something you can't easily get done somewhere else. Do they have a signature treatment? I might go with that.

    Whether I chose a wrap or a massage would depend on whether I wanted to experiment and try out something cool for the experience or really relax and feel good. If you really want to relax and feel rejuvenated, I think you can't go wrong with a massage. And I'd stick with a straight forward one like a deep tissue. If you want to experiment, something like a Thai massage or an Indian Head massage is fun. If they had a two person-four hands massage, that would be really tempting to me. I've always wanted to do that.

    I personally would even skip the mani/pedi for a super long deep tissue massage.

    But if I could spend as much time/money, I'd get a mani/ped + a 90 min deep tissue massage and maybe a facial,although I'm not a huge facial fan.

    Oh, if they have waxing, I'd get my eyebrows waxed too.

    have fun!!!

    Well, they don't exactly call it a pedicure, it's called Spa hand or foot therapy, or you can splurge and go with the Specialty therapy for just $75 more. Lol. I didn't even see "pedicure" or "manicure" on the menu.

    That sounds so lovely!

    I am all about massages. I also like salt and sugar scrubs.

    i would check out their packages first. top of the list for me would be a massage and some type of body treatment that involves exfoliating and moisturizing. if i could do it all, i would also want a facial, wax (full bikini, full legs, underarms, and arms) and a mani-pedi. but those are services that i might get done anyways elsewhere (i already have a person (people) whose work i like).

    Thanks everyone for your input- it has been really helpful!

    I decided to get a Spa Facial (90 minutes), Pre-massage Hydrotherapy, and a Specialty Body Therapy- which is a 2 hour full body mask and a head to toe massage. Sounds fabulous. And, they threw in a complimentary foot therapy! Yay! Even better, they had to stretch the appointments over 2 days since I needed it in the afternoon, so for 2 days I have full access to all the spa amenities. Heavenly. I can't wait!

    Thanks again everyone!

    My favorites are the longest facial they offer and the longest pedi offered. I've tried massages and I'm not a fan (I am always a little uncomfortable- even with a female masseuse) and I've had body wraps and I'm not a big fan of those either. But I tend to be pretty modest.

    If you've never had a body wrap or relaxing massage, I'd say now's the time to try it! You wont' know if you like it unless you've tried it once. Oh, and if it's a really nice spa, enjoy the steam room and whirlpool.

    Sounds wonderful! Enjoy!
