“Thank You” to the Staff at Clear Body & Image Wellness Spa

Categories: Featured, Featured Front Page, Uncategorized

The mixer was GREAT! Many people showed up and could either socialize well snacking on great food and beverages, or they could go around and be pampered the whole evening with messaging, reflexology, hair trimming, eyebrow waxing and even have make-up put on. Who needs to go off anywhere for a spa weekend, when we have it all here in Fairview!!
