As I approach 60 years old, my seasonal facial package at Body and Soul helps my face stay looking healthy and vibrant."
J.W. - New York, NY
The 90 Minute Facial was so much more then buying something for myself. A real gift for the mind, body & soul.
E.P. - Ancramdale, NY
I first ventured into Body and Soul because they have a large Dr. Haushka sign outside and they advertised a natural way to stave off the signs of age, i.e. wrinkles. 'Oh,' I thought, 'a face lift without a surgeon. How cool is that? If that works, it is the most fabulous thing I've ever heard of!'
This 'natural facelift' is the La Fleur treatment and, well, what an extraordinary thing! The La Fleur treatment is actually some kind of miracle! Not only is my skin becoming more and more radient, but the lines are really and truly fading away. Actually, this is the least of it. The La Fleur treatment flushes toxins from your body as well . . . I hope that everyone will give it a try."
M.R. - Copake Falls, NY
Body and Soul is the great escape, the place to get away when I cannot get away. Stephen Marshall combines masterful knowledge of body mechanics with his own brand of magic; Doone (herself the ares top esthetician) and her team just make me feel welcome, from the moment that herb-filled neck pillow goes on as I step through the door."
A.R. - Sheffield, MA/Long Island, NY
My weekend in the Berkshires doesn’t start until I get a massage from Body and Soul. It’s my home away from home where I turn off my cellphone and relax. Best massages from the nicest people."
Dear Ms. Fries, Thank you for saving my vacation. I was in such pain on my lower back side; probably the result of a hike I took several days before. Without an appointment you fit me in your schedule although it was late in the day. That evening after the massage I felt good but the day I felyt great! I walked without any pain the rest of my vacatiion. You worked a miracle! Thank you and "Body and Soul" again. Sincerely."
A.L. - New York, NY
My massage therapist was excellent! She focused on exactly what I asked for & helped me to understand what I was feeling (physically). Best massage ever - feel better than I have in years!"
J.S. - Richmond, MA/New York, NY
