Pamper Your Hair, Body and Spirit at Serenity Spa!

by Cyndi Paxton Johnson

Life is stressful and causes fine lines on my face.  The air is dry and chaps those fine lines while frizzing my hair. Upset about my hair and fine lines, I bite my nails and cuticles.  As I sit, hunched and crying over my chewed nails, my shoulders knot and my back aches.

In other words, it’s Monday. Or any day, really.

Let’s face it gals – we work hard. Unfortunately, it shows.  I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be a pampered star, having others condition and style my hair, do my nails, massage my shoulders and make me beautiful while I sip herbal tea and munch delicately on dark chocolate that NEVER goes to my hips.  

But alas, I’m a mere non-star, doomed to dry skin, chewed cuticles and a stiff neck. 

Or I could stop whining, pack a good book and spend a couple of hours at Serenity Salon Spa and Tanning in Chesapeake City, MD.  This oasis is a one-stop pampering retreat – and I now understand why they’re so busy! I went for a haircut (and it looks marvelous, simply marvelous!) and was so impressed by the place I went back to get a tour of the place! They offer so many pampering options I was drooling – or maybe that was the chocolate body scrub?

First of all, Serenity Spa is a full service hair and nail salon – you name it, they do it. Including eyelash extensions, which are quite popular.  They also have tanning options: traditional beds, upright beds and airbrush tans.  The skin and body care choices are mind-boggling –I can’t wait to try them! Here are some options:  (from their website)


A non-invasive cosmetic technique to smooth the skin, decrease pigmentation and improve fine lines and wrinkles. 

Lactic Acid Peel

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps to restore Ph to dry, prematurely aging skin while aiding the skin to drink in moisture. This is a gentle peel with few or no side effects.

Hot Stone Facial

If you like the signature facial, you will LOVE the hot stone facial. It has all of the benefits of a signature facial, but with an amazing twist - heated basalt stones are used to massage the face, neck and shoulders relieving stress and tension. The use of hot stones will transform an ordinary facial into a total relaxation experience.

Deep Tissue Massage

A more therapeutic technique of bodywork incorporating slower strokes to work deeper layers of muscle fibers. This massage helps release chronic patterns of tension that create painful conditions and structural misalignment.

Indian Head Massage

Do you suffer from migraine/ tension headaches, eyestrain, or neck /shoulder stiffness? Maybe you should try IHM. The areas of focus are the shoulders, neck, head, and face. This massage will stimulate nerve function, improve relaxation, create calmness and emotional well-being, among other benefits.

French Lavender Salt Scrub

Melt away stress with Serenity's French Lavender Salt Scrub. This mixture of Ayurvedic Oil is ideal for easing stress while exfoliating and moisturizing from head to toe. Our Lavender Salt Scrub will rejuvenate the skin leaving it silky smooth and glowing.

Chocolate Peppermint Brown Sugar Scrub

Made with 100% Organic brown sugar, this scrub gently exfoliates old skin while locking in vital moisture to keep skin healthy and visibly radiant. Brown sugar contains AHAs, which help to even skin tone and allow for gentle exfoliation. The synergy of the Aurvedic oils and brown sugar produces natural fatty acids, which lock in moisture, firm the skin, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave skin silky smooth.

Sedona & French Red Clay Body Mud Wrap

This is the most effective anti-oxidant and anti-aging formula infused with Vitamin E, Grape Seed, Bladderwrack, Irish moss, and Sage with Sedona Clay and French Red Clay. These clays, rich in magnesium, Vitamins A, B, B12, E, Iron and amino acids, purge toxins from the skin leaving it soft, re-mineralized, and with a noticeable glow.

Are you drooling yet? Personally, I’d like to make my way through their ENTIRE list, not just these few I’ve chosen to share.  Serenity Spa also does girls’ birthday parties, bridal party pampering and more.  It’s easy to see why folks travel from all over for these services.  

Fortunately for you, we have a 15% off coupon for new clients. Just click HERE – and let the pampering begin!
