Our house also includes a seven person therapeutic Jacuzzi tub, and a redwood sauna for you to enjoy before and after your massage. The elegance of the setting and the quality of our experienced massage therapists combine for an experience you won't forget.

Whether you're a fan of the Wizard of Oz, Onondaga Lake, or maybe you remember when the mansion next door to us was called the "AAA building", you will find new and exciting things happening on West Onondaga Street. The yellow brick mansion known as AAA was recently sold and is soon to be converted to office and studio space. (The AAA building, old timers will remember, is where we used to go to pick up "Triptiks", those pocket sized maps that we all knew and loved, long before MapQuest and GPS came along). 

Just a block away a group of Wizard of Oz fans are planning to buy another neighborhood mansion where Oz author L Frank Baum spent much of his childhood.

And out in the street - that construction that's been going on all summer is part of Onondaga County's...

You might find it a bit tricky getting into our parking lot for the next few days. The City of Syracuse and Onondaga County are continuing to work on the streets in the neighborhood, with the goal of reducing the amount of rain that goes into the storm sewers, mingles with the sanitary sewers, and messes up Onondaga Creek and Onondaga Lake. 

Each day the traffic pattern will be a bit different, but there is always a way to get in to the Spa, and we will still be open our regular hours - Monday through Saturday, 9:30 - 6:30.

If your should find our driveway temporarily blocked, you should be able to go through the Rite Aid lot and circle around.

We apologize for the inconvenience. I've seen the drawings of the plans and it seems like it's going to look really nice when it's done. 

Massage will proceed without interruption!
