I realize that for many of you the drive to Florence is not as convenient as previous locations have been & for some it may be overwhelming or daunting. I appreciate the additional time, energy and loyalty you are committing to when you make your appointment and I want your experience to be positive all the way around. This page will be filled with an assortment of options to enhance your trip. Fun & practical options for you to enjoy & explore before, after, during your partners massage. I will put a *CC* next to those I know to be very COVID conscious. I welcome input & additions if you know of a treasure I have missed please let me know so I can add it.
I would prefer that you do not hop in your car directly after your massage and into the drive back to Yachats until you are fully present & ready to do so.
