I had a wonderful massage with Jennifer today! Usually I don’t like to get massages but she was amazing and made me feel super comfortable! Not only are her hands amazing and strong but she is incredibly knowledgeable! She has been the first person to explain to me why I’m probably having the issues I am and she found the spots of tension and was able to start to work them out for me! I’ve never felt more like jello and rejuvenated after having left a massage! I was relaxed and my body is feeling lighter! Thank you Jennifer!

Karen is by far the most amazing at what she does. Her massage had me leave with no trace of the awful headache I’ve had for over a week.

Melissa did my first ever facial and it was truly a relaxing experience.

Can’t wait to go back.

My first time and it was absolutely amazing to say the least. The massage and facial were expertly done making it great but the topper was my masseuse Melissa. She made the experience unforgettable! When I go back, which I will it will only be to her. Same thing with my nail tech Amanda. She turned my mani/pedi into something special. So personable, so sweet. I can’t say enough good things about these ladies. Actually everyone I encountered there was awesome. This is the best I have ever felt, can’t wait to go back!

What a relaxing experience at By the Sea! I had the Mother’s Day special and couldn’t be happier with it! Jane gave me a magical Swedish massage that had me so relaxed I almost fell asleep 😄. Followed it up with a facial with Danielle that was also amazing! Thank you! Can’t wait to come back!

I was a nervous wreck about getting a massage because I am not a fan of disrobing and having strangers touch me but let me say it was the best experience I have ever had. I will try to get a massage a few times a year if possible! I have never felt so relaxed! Jane is amazing... made me feel totally comfortable and was such a sweetheart! Kim did my body wrap and was also sweet and made me feel totally comfortable. I left there feeling like a new person. The only thing I felt a little funny about was sitting in the waiting room with fully dressed women with my robe on

It was my first time and my therapist Lisa me me feel so comfortable. As a mom of two is difficult to get some down time so to be able to go in and actually be given water and asked how I am was amazing lol. The membership so far is definitely worth it and highly recommend. Even the office girl who called to remind me was very patient with me asking all my questions and relaxing my nerves.

I only come here for massages! I have had swedish, deep tissue and my husband and I had a couples massage last year. I just went yesterday for a swedish massage post baby. It was only a half hour, but Lisa made every minute count. She incorporates stretching into her massages, which I love! The atmosphere is always calming and tranquil. Afterwards, you can enjoy hot tea and light snacks. The gift shop has amazing products; I love the lotions and soaps. I can't wait to go back!
