I had a wonderful visit with Janis. She was informative and had a relaxing presence. Very enjoyable! Enjoyed the tucked-away setting of the spa and it’s Santa Fe charm. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely be coming back next time we come back!

Ahhh....the Stressbuster is an amazing experience! Something about the Chinese Herbal oils and hot towels that just melts away the knots. And yes, our therapists, all with 10-28 years of experience, really know how to please! Thank you, Carolyn
