Outdoor Massage, Anyone? By the Wellness Guy (WG)

After eight years in Japan, Marc Freedman, the owner of InTouch Massage & Day Spa on Water Street in Williamstown decided to open a spa utilizing Japanese design themes.  Set along the Green River, this unique location boasts a wall of flowers, gleaming wood floors and a hot tub on the deck!  Bamboo partitions make for a private outdoor massage experience while enjoying the fresh air and sounds of running water.  Or, clients may opt for an indoor treatment room where they can receive anything ranging from a mud or wine wrap to seaweed body masques, acupuncture, pedicure/manicure (get ready for those summer sandals!), waxing, Japanese hot stone massage or facials.  Oh, did I mention there’s a full service salon as well?  Enjoy a cut or color while daydreaming out the large picture windows and into woods and water.  The salon uses Schwarzkopf and the spa—Keyano aromatics for their product line.  Marc said they’ve kept prices at the same rate for six years, plus they offer specials like the current “Date Night” promotion where you can receive 1-hr massages and a 1-hour soak in the tub with your significant other for $175.  InTouch also caters to small parties as well as offering prom and wedding services.
