Before a good massage, our bodies are weighed down by our worries. Though we may not be aware of how we hold on tightly to expectations, disappointments, hopes, hold on tightly we do. Muscles are constantly flexed, connective tissue contracted. To a greater or lesser degree, we hurt.
During a good massage, the tightness is released. Muscles are worked, connective tissue stretched; worries dissipate, expectations and hopes fade away. We cease to think at all. We are aware of our bodies: our muscles and tendons and bones and skin.
After a good massage, we feel no pain, no aches. We feel no bones, no muscles. We simply exist. It is an incredible feeling, to lie still and be, not feel. It’s what it must be like to be a pool of still water.
The Spa Indulgence Package at our Berkshire Inn can transform you from a tense body to a pool of still water. Leave the city and worries behind. Travel to the peaceful Berkshires and indulge in a Deep Tissue Massage or a Swedish Massage at Soul Spa. Guests of Applegate Inn receive a 10% discount.
Massages are not just for the body; a good massage should relax your soul.
Whether you think your soul needs to relax or not, you probably agree that a massage would feel awfully good about now. Think how much better it will feel when it’s part of a vacation at our Lee MA Bed and Breakfast – when you won’t have to do dishes, make beds, or clean. Think one word: pampered.
Our Bed and Breakfast Berkshires offers a Spa Indulgence Special in conjunction with nearby Soul Spa. Enjoy a 10% discount on deep tissue massage, facial rejuvenation, aromatherapy or reflexology. Your soul is bound to feel good.
Many of our guests live in the city. They drive to our Berkshires bed and breakfast from Boston, Hartford, and New York City. They come for fresh air and quiet country evenings, to take long walks in the woods or to ski. These guests crave time in the country and they need it, but most live in the city because they love city life; for them, the area surrounding our Lenox MA b&b is ideal because it boasts cultural attractions, fine dining, and amenities that would make any city proud.
Our Spa Special takes advantage of our close proximity to Soul Spa, in Lee. Soul Spa offers everything a metropolitan spa offers these days, but you don’t need to fight traffic or squish yourself into a subway to get there: guests may walk the .6 miles from our inn to the spa (breathing in fresh air and admiring fall foliage as they go).
Once there, indulge in body scrubs and holistic baths, full body massages or facials. Uncover the healing powers of Shiro Dhara and Ayurvedic Rejuvenation, or try one of Soul Spa’s Unique Therapies, such as the Rain Forest Rejuvenation. We confidently recommend Soul Spa to any guests in need of serious rest, relaxation, and of course, rejuvenation. Guest of our bed and breakfast Berkshires receive a 10% discount.
Now that the temperatures outside our western Massachusetts lodging seem to be settled into the twenties, it seems like the perfect time to bring up our Spa Indulgence Special. If you are from anywhere in the Northeast, you are used to long, cold winters. You may even enjoy them. But from time to time, everyone needs to take a break and feel warm and pampered. For some, that means traveling to Florida. For others, it means a day at a spa.
The latter, of course, is much more economical. Spend a few days at our Lenox MA inn, where you will find warmth, comfort, and excellent food. Each day as the light wanes, you’re invited to sit by a roaring fire and enjoy wine and cheese. At bedtime, you’ll find cognac and chocolates in your room. Throughout your stay you may enjoy several comfortable seating areas throughout the inn; play the piano, play a game, read a book…. Relax.
To help you feel extra pampered, head to nearby Lee and the Soul Spa. Both of you will enjoy an almost hour long deep tissue massage, and you may each choose from these additional services: Reflexology, Aromatherapy, or Facial Rejuvenation. As guests of our bed and breakfast Berkshires, You’ll receive a 10% discount.
Staying in colder climates during the winter has its advantages. We feel entitled to certain things, like spa days. And in truth, we deserve them.
