This is the third in a series of infrequent articles that feature spa deals for the budget traveler.
I consider myself to be a fairly practical person. I’m not (usually) wasteful and I pride myself on making cogent financial decisions. So, I was a little bit surprised when I found myself clicking the buy button on one of my favorite discount sites, Living Social. There was a great deal for a ninety minute massage at a local spa with three additional services to choose from for a grand total of $49.00! In my neck of the woods, this price was crazy since one hour massages usually are priced in the $100.00+ range and the three add-on services could easily quadruple that price. Obviously, offering such a fantastic discount was their way of introducing people to the spa. I wasn’t familiar with them, but I figured with such a small investment , it would be worth investigating.
WellSpa Suites (Office: (770) 948-8000 351 Thornton Road, Suite 106 Lithia Springs, GA 30122) is located in a quiet, unassuming office park adjacent to I-20 and located west of Atlanta. I will admit to some reticence as I drove up. Luckily those feelings begin to wane as soon as I stepped inside. I was warmly greeted and was escorted into ‘the quiet room’ since I was a little early for my appointment. Along the way, there were individual suites on either side that were workstations where one could get a massage, mani-pedi, colonic and reflexology sessions.
