“Serene haven that is Thermae”


My exploration of Fort Lauderdale continues, and brought me to the serene haven that is Thermae. The decor is simple but beautiful – dark wood, not a ton of decorations and Buddha statues/heads abound.  It’s a very clean facility.
Kelly greeted me at the check in area and was courterous, warm and engaging.  She gave me a brief tour of the spa and invited me to sit in the Eucalyptus sauna. How lovely!  After this, I took a quick rinse in their cold shower to prep for my 60 min. massage.  Debra was my therapist, and she did an excellent job working the knots out of my shoulders and neck. She had me practice mindful breathing throughout the massage, which helped me stay in the moment.  After my massage, I was invited to sit in the infrared sauna for 20 minutes for a guided meditation. The whole experience took about 2 blissful hours.

I was there during odd hours, so not sure if it would be equally as serene during a busy Saturday. However, I definitely will be paying them a visit again.
