The new space is beautiful and inviting! My thai reflexology session with Jess was very relaxing. Jes shared a lot of good information with me and was very warm. She even gave me extra time and care because I was experiencing some back stiffness at the end of my appointment. It's obvious SPW cares about their customers having a good experience. I will return soon!
