If you have never experienced a hot stone massage, you, my friend, are missing out.
Big D bought me my first-ever massage a few years ago, and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. Then, when we were in Florida on vacation, I went into a spa and asked for a hot stone massage. But it just wasn't the same as the one from Liz and Sandalwood Day Spa, right here in Tulsa at 37th and Harvard.
The rooms are spacious and calming, and the massage table features a heating pad under linens to really help you relax during your massage. Ah - I can feel myself relaxing just thinking about it.
There's calming music and a water feature bubbling in the background. Your knots, kinks, worries, troubles and stresses vanish as you lose yourself in the warmth of the stones and the smells of cinnamon, lavender or scented oil of your choice. As you relax, you feel yourself sink into the warmth of the table and float away to a quiet, peaceful realm.
Follow up on that relaxation with some RO water or one of the many hot teas available at Sandalwood.
Sandalwood Day Spa offers other massages, too - swedish, reflexology, deep tissue and a Hawaiian lomi lomi. It also offers a line of facials, body masks, waxing, salt polishing and an aloe vera wrap I've been dying to try.
Still conscious? Let's see what we can do about that.
Sandalwood recently added a full-service salon. Anything and everything can be done at this place, all at once - it's a comfort to be able to come to one place for all your relaxation and beauty needs.
Sandalwood would be a great place to take a bridal party or a landing pad for a girls' night out. The girls could get a relaxing massage, manis, pedis and/or a new hair cut, all in one fell swoop. Call Liz about bridal packages and other discounts.
Still vertical? Sandalwood now carries the Mere Minerals line. Get your chance to meet the local creator and owner of Mere Minerals makeup, Yannah Cormier, this Saturday from 3-5 p.m. at Sandalwood. Stop by to meet Cormier, and take a few minutes to get with her cosmetologist and estheticians to go over which colors would best suit your skin type. I like Mere Minerals because it's great stuff. Plus, it's affordable. What's not to love?
