This afternoon I spent eighty minutes getting pampered and massaged at the The Sanderling Spa in Duck, North Carolina. The masseuse assured me that the massage would boost my immune system, improve my overall circulation, and balance my chakras. I don’t know about all that, but when the massage was over I did feel like a large, oiled noodle.
The total cost was $204. The stone massage cost $170 plus a $34 tip. Every year my mother-in-law gives me a gift certificate for Christmas and every fall I use it to spend an hour or two at the Sanderling. This year it covered everything but the tip.
