"Thank you Vena and her wonderful students for my relaxing experience with their new sun sauna. I'm so glad I got to try that. I will be coming more through the winter to help keep away the blues! And thank you again for your doing men's facials too! It was a fun treat to be able to give my sweet heart as part of a relax and enjoy outing."
