Review: Citron Spa


Sometimes, a girl needs to be pampered!  After a busy few weeks and having a slight brush with a sinus infection, I made an appointment at Citrón Spa for some relaxation and rejuvenation!


I had heard great things about this new Spa, tucked into the heart of Wayland Square, and wanted to check it out for myself. I was greeted by the owner, Christina Allen, who immediately swept me away into the relaxation lounge.  The beautiful  design of the space made me feel relaxed right away and the attention to detail made me feel like I was at a girlfriends house!   I chose a hot cup of tea from the complimentary drink menu to go with my yummy apple crisp treat, but I will admit, the Champagne was rather tempting.  

After a warm neck pillow was placed on my shoulders, it was time to get down to business and fill out some paperwork.  Christina recommended the Green Science Facial, which focuses on anti-aging and includes a gentle plant peel. (My skin is very sensitive). Citron is a wellness spa and really focuses of the well being of the entire person.  I truly experienced this during my facial. I was given the option of several different aromatherapy oils that would be incorporated into my facial.  Also, I received a hand and foot massage, as well as some hot rocks and a scalp massage, while the facial peel was doing its job.  The facial itself was wonderful and I emerged glowing and relaxed, without any irritation from the peel.

Following my facial, I had an appointment for a massage with the wonderful Jody Rudnick. Before heading into the massage room, we discussed my concerns and what I wanted to get out of my massage.  I carry a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders, so I really wanted her to work those areas.  I also prefer a more vigorous massage. I was warned, I might feel sore in my neck after, but that was a price I was willing to pay. I opted for a deep tissue massage for severe tension, but Jody told me afterwards, that she threw in a few other tricks out of her bag ;-) In addition, I received the hot stones as well as the hot steam towels.  If you have never had either of these before, they are a real treat and really take your massage to the next level.  The massage was amazing, one of the best I have ever had, to be honest. Although my neck was tender the next day, I felt like I was floating on air. Not a kink in sight for days!  Another wonderful option for all of the moms-to-be out there is a pre-natal massage, which not many places offer.

I loved my visit at Citron Spa and when I have some time, I will sneak back there for some more “alone time”.  One of my favorite things about the place is that you can really customize your experience and they also have budget friendly options.  All skin care and massage services are offered in three tiers: 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes and vary in price accordingly.  There are also several add-on options for an additional $10.00 per treatment.  The possibilities are endless! The spa also offers mani's and pedi's (note to self - must try those), as well as waxing, makeup applications and medi-spa services, which includes laser hair removal, vein therapy, botox and dermal fillers.
