Great job!

  Hello ladies from Vitality Spa. My experience at the spa was wonderful. The temperature of the room was perfect, lights dim, and comforting music playing on low.   My massage therapist and I spoke about my body pain. She was careful to remember where to use a little...

Gloria did and excellent job

  I was very pleased. Gloria was charming and did an excellent job — I particularly appreciated her knowledgeable responses to my questions about ways in which to resolve muscular tightness (e.g., causing round shoulders.) I definitely plan to get another massage with Gloria, and I will recommend both...

Luray – heavenly massage

The massage visit with Luray was heavenly once again. My whole being – mind body and spirit – feels soothed, smoothed, unified, revitalized, and encouraged. My ongoing mission is to carry this patterning forward as I step into the new year. Thank you Luray ! Thank you Vitality Spa...

Gloria – nurturing touch

I had a massage with Gloria yesterday. She has such a nurturing manner and her touch is truly healing. I was especially impressed that her hands seemed to intuit exactly how much pressure each area needed. I am more determined than ever to make time for regular massages to...

Oncology Massage

Words cannot describe what my oncology massage has done for me. I was lucky to learn about your Spa and Luray by chance. As a 6 year survivor with a lot of complications, I can honestly say this by far the best “aftercare” medicinal treatment I can do for...

Quote Great Reviews for Beth!

Hello! 

I am sorry I am a week late with this but the spa ritual pedicure I had with Beth was the most relaxing pedicure I’ve ever experienced! I am on my feet for most of the week and not always choosing the most comfortable footwear, but feet and my calves felt brand new afterwards. I loved the variety of polish colors! Beth did such a nice job making me feel at ease. It was nice to lay back and relax in the comfort of my own private room. Thanks Beth, I will be back soon! KM
