If your window of opportunity for rest and relaxation is two hours rather than two days, a visit to a day spa just might do the trick.

My subsequent interviews on the street proved my theory about Jonathans male perspective, but elicited a number of responses from various woman.

Recently, Tranquility offered $10 body scrub Houston haircuts to benefit the families of the 19 Yarnell Hill firefighters who died June 30. They also support Sub for Santa during the holidays.

My massage therapist, Karla, was relaxed and friendly, to just the right point. As I chatted, she answered minimally and let things quiet down naturally. I appreciated this as much as the heated bed.
