I love how much attention to detail they show. It was easy to get the appointment time that worked for my schedule. They seemed flexible, which I liked. Their prices were fair and the level of care you get for the price is great. When I arrived for my appointment I was greeted and offered a cup of tea. It felt good to have a little pampering. I've been to other places where I had to wait forever after I arrived for my appointment, but not here. They were kind and attentive to me and I had an amazing treatment !!!
