If you have ever driven down the Post Rd and wondered about that New Beauty & Wellness place, It is worth popping in. There you will find a beautiful spa that quickly takes you outside of your day to day life, and transports you somewhere Zen. There you will also find Jennifer, a truly special esthetician who is kind, authentic, funny, and loves what she does.
