"Spa Saturday" @ Be Studios

I simply love when I discover a new gem in town. First thing I think about is sharing the excitement with you guys, then I sit back, relax and enjoy the find. This past Saturday "relax," can't even come close to my experience at BE Studios in Cleveland.

First founded as the "go-to" place for bachelorette parties, a killer core workout and a swing on the pole, BE Studios has now grown to more than just a fitness and dance studio. This spring Christina and her incredibly talented staff expanded to include a gorgeous spa destination.

From the moment I walked into the space I was enveloped by aromas of calming oils, a soft undertone of electronic beats and the design of the interiors to die for. The peaceful gray color palette seems to have stepped off the pages of a luxury living magazine, yet most elements to the interiors are vintage and have been re purposed and or reupholstered to compliment one another. Every detail has been well thought through, each candle, each piece of art, every shelf, mirror and stack of towels visually work together to create the overall drama. Let's just say, I was blown away.

It was a girls afternoon, we kicked off "Spa Saturday" by sweating it out (the night before's wine intake) in the infrared sauna. While we sat in the 140 degree dry heat we gulped down the Smart Water that was provided at the spa. I don't think I've ever challenged myself to sit in a sauna for a full :30 minutes, let alone site STILL for :30 minutes...but we did it!

After that I had one of the most amazing massages ever. Every muscle in my body was worked too mush. The technician performed this fast kneading method up and down my back to which she later referenced as her "secret technique." If you like a great deep massage call today.

As I stumbled out of the treatment room, I felt like a half melted summer Popsicle. I was so at peace, so relaxed, my brain could barely tell my feet to move one foot in front of the other. A crazy feeling.

I got myself into the next room where I experienced a deep cleansing facial. The organic Eminence products smelled yummy enough to taste, I almost licked the ice wine raspberry toning masque right off my chin.

One last thing that I need to tell you about BE Studios, they have this great little relaxation area in the back of the space which would be so perfect for a small baby shower, a bachelorette afternoon or just a group of close friends. Next time you're faced with planning a gathering, this place would "WOW" your group, I promise.

So, with all that said...my skin is glowing, my knots are gone, and the Friday night toxins have left the building. You've got to see it to believe it, so swing by the Clifton Blvd business and make an appointment today!

This place is right down the street from where I live. I walk by it all the time and I'm excited they have a lot of options and a working website now! If only I could wake up in time for the 6am yoga, that would be awesome!
