  7. 7. We offer comprehensive REVIEWS on hotels, activitiesand attractions to provide insight for YOU, our guest. This spa, owned by the Anitra family, specializes in brow threading but also offers facials, manicures, waxing & henna tattoos (if you are so inclined). I’d heard about threading but never had the opportunity (nor the desire) to try it. It’s a centuries old process used mostly in Middle Eastern countries and India. The clinician uses her teeth to anchor the (sewing) thread and both hands to grasp several strands of the unwanted hair and a quick tug pulls them out. The process lasts for up to two to six weeks, about as long as tweezing, but more hairs are pulled which shortens the threading session. City Brows in New York City, NY Back at the office, Bud had suggested that we take the smaller 8-person raft. I was hesitant at first because I thought a larger raft would be better, you know the “safety in numbers” thing. Now that I was actually in the raft, I got it. It was a much better ride in comparison to my neighbors in the larger raft, we had more bounce and weren’t as weighted down. Our group was laughing and getting drenched happily 90% of the time as we rode wave after wave. Initially there were scary moments, but Ginny was calm so that kept me calm. We felt every wonderful and glorious wave as we floated down the river. Dave Hansen’s Whitewater in Jackson Hole, WY As an arthritis sufferer, I was looking forward to a focus on that area during the session. Not only did Thea work her magic on my old tired bones, she alternately placed cold marble stones and warm stones on my knees giving them an equal balance of hot and cold treatment. May I just say that I was in heaven? I started to chuckle to myself that if an army ever wanted to defeat an enemy, hire Thea…. by the time she gets through with them, they would be turned into melted licorice. A Spa For You in Sedona, Arizona It’s immaculately appointed with a large secretarial desk and an ergonomic chair. Across the room, you will find two well-cushioned chairs and an ottoman flanking a small side table with a freestanding lamp providing much needed light in the far corner of the room. The bathroom was fresh and clean with granite counter tops that offered stainless steel amenities like a soap dish, tissue and cotton swab holders, hand-held mirror and the usual travel sized personal care items that I’m so very fond of.
