Downtown Columbus

For some out there, Presidents Day, which is right around the corner, antes up a three-day break that will help knock out the winter blues.  Time off may be in short supply for some though, so we found a downtown spa that will make you feel like you took a week-long vacay. Don’t have tons of cash? No, problem, hour-long massages here only cost $30. Want in on the secret?

Miami-Jacobs Career College runs Serenity Spa at 150 E. Gay Street. Think of it as residency for massage therapists. Students who have completed training and shown competency in the program put their magic fingers to the test for full-body relaxation sessions, and you can be the benefactor.
The Swedish hour-long massage costs $30, and the 75-minute hot stone massage is a cool $40, but there’s more, much more. Care to add aromatherapy or a sea-salt glow or a full-body wrap? They’ve got that, too. They even accommodate those short on time with chair massages ranging from five to 30 minutes at just a dollar a minute.
What’s the catch? Absolutely nothing.  You can’t even tip the massage therapists so your $30 massage really costs $30. If you try it out before the end of February, Serenity will even give you 15 percent off your service.  What are you waiting on? Give them a call, 614-569-2463.
