    With all the talk about exercise on graytonbeach.com, let me raise another question. Where do people get the best massages and how much do they cost. Anyone know anyone very trustworthy who comes to the house to give massages?

    Paula, I have heard second hand from local BnB (with good taste and high standards of service) that Ocean Elements Day Spa in Gulf Place is possible spot for you. I can not remember the guy's real name, go figure, and not sure about pricing or home massage. However, I think he does a good deal of business by appointment, whether in the spa or at home. Good luck, and let us know if you find a good one.

    We have used Craig & Nancy McLaughlin at Advanced Therapeutic Massage, Grayton Beach, on a number of occasions and are very pleased with them. Both give an excellent massage at a very reasonable price, one hour for $60 and a half-hour session for $35. These prices are for Swedish/Relaxation. Deep Muscle work is one hour for $70 and a half-hour for $40. They will come to your home, and it's a good idea to book as far ahead as possible. In addition to massage, they also offer facials and other spa treatments such as body wraps and spa package deals. There are two treatment rooms available at their offices if you don't want them to come to the house. They offer yoga classes at Seaside, too. Here's the contact info: 131 DeFuniak Street (around back, upstairs), Grayton Beach, telephone (850)231-4220.

    Support local businesses!! :wub:

    Great folks and very, very reasonable prices. $55 for one hours compared with up to $100 per hour at other places in the area.

    My friends and I all went for massages at For the Health of It in Blue Mtn last October and we all agreed they were the best we'd ever had. Their prices are very reasonable and the massage rooms were very peaceful.

    Thanks everybody. I'll be taking a vacation with 3 of my women friends in the fall and massages would be a fine way to spend some time. Any other great recommendations for the weekend? I'm familiar with much of 30A, but I've always gone with the kids, so this is a different kind of weekend.

    That was a few months back, and it is a long story, and RiverOtter thought he was making a joke! Watch out brotha. Craig and Nancy, in Grayton, are my picks for off premise massage, while For the Health of It, in Blue Mtn Bch, is my pick for on premise. I am due for one very soon.

    I hear that For The Health Of It has very convenient gift certificates for family, friends, or property checker outers. ;-) ;-)

    Now that is one certificate which I would never refuse. If I was smart, I would schedule an one hour massage per week.

    You are so right. I remember my first time surf fishing and people were watching because I am the official entertainment with no one else around. Talk about pressure. I was feeling it. Why is it that everytime I think, "this is going to be the perfect cast," I forget to flip the bail?

    This is great info...thanks! I'll make sure to add it to the information folder we leave for guests. Heck, I may just give it a try next time I'm down there!

    It is always a good idea to test the product before recommending it. Looks like if you do this, your next visit will be very rewarding.

    Good idea! For the sake of future renters, I'll just HAVE to endure a massage and spa treatment next visit ;-)

    Absolutely, SJ. That's really the only reason I go to restaurants and want to get a few massages -- to preview the different places for guests.
