This spa has a lot of different possibilities for gift ideas. Owner Heather Koubek said a nice gift would be the discounted spa packages, with come with a combination aromatherapy massage of your choice, as well as either a scalp, foot or sinus relief treatment.
Those sessions usually last about an hour and a half or two hours, she said. The scalp, foot and sinus treatments are a bit more “playful,” she added. The sinus treatments are especially good for people with allergies, she said.
“In the hour-long massage, you’ll get what you really need,” Koubek said.
Yemaya’s massages are all the same price, $80, and individualized.
“We base it on your individual needs,” she said. “We treat you like a person and listen to what you have to say and what you’re looking for.”
Before the massage, they interview the customer about any areas he or she wants worked out, anywhere that’s been bothering them.
For Valentine’s Day, Yemaya is offering a deal on gift certificates where if you buy one you get one half off on a second.

Owner Barbara Rosa said Blissful keeps prices low and takes appointments seven days a week.
One possible idea for Valentine’s Day, Rosa said, is to book a couples massage in Blissful’s couples room.
“It’s very popular. If you’re not comfortable, you’re side-by-side with someone else,” she said. “You’re fully-covered and we take out the only part we have to work on. The room’s cosy, the music’s good, it has soft lighting and the tables heat up. We do as much as we can to make it enjoyable and relaxing.”
She said Blissful also does facials, but they primarily stick to massages.
“We keep it concentrated on what we’re great at,” she said.
Blissful has seven rooms and offers gift certificates that don’t expire.

The deal is that you get both for just $99, and you have to purchase it on a gift card before Valentine’s Day. The card can be redeemed at anytime, but you have to get both the facial and massage on the same visit.
Russo also said they’re offering a three-month gift membership for $177 so people can try out their membership program, which normally costs $59 a month. With the membership, you get an hour-massage each month and then discounted rates for additional services. The three-month trial comes with three hour-massages and the discounted rates.
