Is it going to be John, Gino, Michael, Paul, or Don? (Sounds a lot like the beginning of “Ghostbusters!”) Make no mistake, though, when you go to 78 Degree Spa, you won’t have to worry about ghosts. In fact, your biggest worry may be about getting addicted. After a day there, all you will want to do is curl up in a corner and realize you have just had the Day of your Life.
For couples, 78 Degree has a great room just for you and your honey, in which to share a relaxing aromatherapy massage (on two tables), with two therapists in one room: You can just feel all of those tensions leaving. This is also a great treat for you and a friend to have a boys’ (or girls’) Jour de Spa—oui? Now, if you work out, try 78 Degree’s sports massage, a far more vigorous approach which also includes stretching, and supports a higher degree of physical training. While there, how about a soothing Herbal Wrap? This will pull impurities from the body—a really great way to pamper yourself, body and soul. In addition, they offer hair removal for eyebrows, ears, back, chest, and everywhere else you can imagine.
Dry and aching feet? Try an aromatherapy hand and foot massage, and add the heated paraffin treatment.
There are just so many things to try at 78 Degree Spa.
Owner John Pimenta has long been involved in the community, and is always onboard to assist the local charities in raising money. “That’s part of being in business,” Pimenta says, in his distinct New England accent. “You have to be involved. You have to be there and to give back, and that’s what we’ve done over the years.”
Pimenta attributes his longevity in Wilton Manors on adaptability and being flexible to the changes in both the economy and the market. “Has it been tough? Sure, but that’s life and you just have to keep pushing on,” he says, philosophically. “I think that’s one of the reasons that we’re still here, you just have to keep looking forward,” Pimenta adds. He is also upbeat about what his clients have to say about 78 Degree Spa:
“I’ve had massages all over the world, and this is the best massage I’ve ever received.”
“I live in New York and travel a lot in my work. I’ve had massages in many places, but this is the best.” “I was considering surgery for my carpal tunnel syndrome, but my pain is gone, and what you’ve taught me will help keep it gone.”
“The environment is so peaceful.” “My pain is gone—I’ll be back.” You see what I mean? Give your body a vacation from life, at 78 Degree Spa, 2153 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors.
