Middlebury spa really hits the spot

During the week of Oct. 15, partners Sara Daly and Laurie Webb opened the Waterfalls Day Spa located in the Middlebury Inn at 14 Court House Sq. Daly is a licensed physical therapist, and Webb is a licensed esthetician and nail technician. Waterfalls Day Spas motto is simply: Escape, relax, restore. According to Webb, Both of us previously worked at the Addison County Home Health and saw the demand in opening a spa in its current location. The area without a doubt needed something new and exciting. Before actually opening, Daly and Webb obviously did their homework as they delved into a year of research, viability, and marketing. The partners took many business courses and worked closely with the Small Business Association coming up with a solid business plan. The Addison County Chamber of Commerce contacted on their behalf the Middlebury Inn owners who in turn contacted the ladies negotiating the ideal spot located in the lower lobby of the 200-year-old building. By no means does one need to stay at the Middlebury Inn to experience an escape, relaxation, and restoration at the Waterfalls Day Spa. However, you simply must follow the protocol in closing your eyes breathing, relaxing, and listening to the sounds of Waterfalls. Escape and leave your world behindforget everything including contact with others via electronic devices. This alluring spa will transport you into a perfectly planned soothing environment away from your hectic life. Just feel the experience. You may be wondering why Daly and Webb called their spa Waterfalls? According to Webb, Waterfalls have been known for their powerful healing. Falling water calms and connects one to the environment and is known to lower the heart rate, regulate the breathing, and cause speed healing. All of these wonderful benefits would assure anyone of an improvement. Entering Waterfalls you can feel your stress melt away as you are greeted with a smile and escorted to a private dressing area where you find a L.L. Bean canvas bag filled with all the necessary day spa accoutrements: wraps, bottled spring water, and comfy sandals. From there you are guided into a sitting lounge with chocolates, water, and a detailed questionnaire regarding any health issues and concerns before starting treatment. The soothing piped-in meditative music, earth tones, simplistic d飯r, and dim lighting ease you into the healing and relaxing experience of Waterfalls. After a consultation with a trained specialist, you are led to the tranquil main corridor of the spa where there is a Vermont Panton stone waterfall. This large waterfall, designed and custom-made by artist Louis Nop, soothes and allures one to many relaxing and rejuvenating services. Spa services are not only for women; men are welcome, too. Waterfalls equipment is state of the art, whether they be specialized facial chairs, massage tables, manicure stations, and the phenomenal pedicure chairs. Additionally Waterfalls offers a popular line of Jane Ordeal facial products. Daly and Webb researched this mineral makeup, which is chock full of vitamins and protection from the harsh elements of our environment. The personable, knowledgeable staff at Waterfalls Day Spa will customize your special treatments for all types of massage ranging from 25 minutes and upward including couples massages, various facials, mineral makeup applications, waxings, body scrubs/wraps, manicures/pedicures, packages, and VIP spa for weddings.
