Today a group of “us girls” went out for brunch at a cafe in health food store. I had no idea the place existed, but besides a wonderful menu, they had great produce. I was tempted to go grocery shopping, but resisted because we all had treatments scheduled at the Nordica spa. I had a facial, I think it was the surface treatment.
The spa is rather like sitting in a beautifully designed thermal cave. The walls are natural rock, or blue-green tile. One of the bathing pools has basalt columns in it. Among other things, they give you a neck massage while sitting in the hot tub. How lovely is that?
So we soaked and steamed–eucalyptus and lavender steamroom–and then went in for our various treatments. My skin is so soft and hydrated now. I could also sleep for days.
