Once I entered Terme Day Spa, I was immediately ensconced in a serene, calming environment filled with soothing scents and music. After the front desk staff cordially welcomed me, I had an opportunity to take a tour with Jane Miller, who owns the St. Clair Shores-based business. My tour revealed one of Terme Day Spa’s specialized features, the presence of showers in the massage rooms, obviating the need to disrupt your service to head to a different area for a shower. Jane, herself an esthetician and massage therapist, stated that she is well-versed with the spa industry and its services and has visited spas around the country. She told me she recognized the major benefits to her clients’ privacy and convenience from having a shower in her treatment rooms.
According to Jane, massages and facials are the most popular services at Terme Day Spa, and clients travel from all across metro Detroit to partake in the luxury and pampering that the spa offers. Terme Day Spa boasts a full selection of massage services, including hot rocks thermotherapy, as well as body treatments, body scrubs, body wraps, manicures, pedicures and waxing. Terme Day Spa is also one of a few select establishments in southeast Michigan to offer facials that feature Yon-ka Paris products. These elite Yon-ka Paris facials are customized facials designed to meet a client’s individualized needs, where an esthetician works specifically with the essential oils of each person’s skin.
I was fortunate to receive a spa pedicure at Terme Day Spa, and my experience was amazing. My nail technician Kathy was attentive, efficient and friendly, and my service included a homemade vanilla foot scrub, the smell of which was absolutely scrumptious! My feet were also treated to a foot bath, a mud masque that conditioned my skin, a comforting hot towel wrap and a relaxing foot massage.
Terme Day Spa has been in business for 12 years, and Jane, who has a background in real estate, recounted that she immediately recognized the fabulous value that St. Clair Shores and Macomb County have to offer business owners. Terme Day Spa is in a great location on the west side of Greater Mack Avenue, between 8 and 9 Mile, in close proximity to Lake St. Clair.
One of the things that sets Terme Day Spa apart from other spas is its emphasis on wellness and healthy living. Jane and her staff of 12, one of whom is her daughter, place great value on “helping people to look and feel their best,” because Jane recognizes that how people look affects how they feel.
