Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and relax.
You are centered, you are balanced, and you've just now entered into a peaceful state of mind. You can hear the waves splashing in the background with the soft playing sounds of a Spanish guitar. This is your perfect oasis, this is what you need, and this is where you belong. Leave the stress at home and relax your mind and body in the expert hands of salon professionals at the Spa at River Ridge.
The Spa at River Ridge is independently owned and recently opened its new location in Dublin, OH at 5555 Wall Street, Dublin, OH 43017. As soon as you walk in the door you're greeted by smiling faces and you instantly feel at home. It's a family-oriented atmosphere and the staff and owners are extremely passionate about each guest. If you're new to the spa, they'll give you a brief tour of the facility which includes beautiful views of the pond and garden, a warm and welcoming environment, and beautiful dark warm colors that instantly put you in a relaxing state.
The Spa at River Ridge is perfect for private events, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, mother/daughter days, or a girls night. Father's Day is coming up and I think my Dad would love to be pampered with a service. Any service here would make a great gift! I'm still reminiscing about my experience and I can't wait to schedule my next appointment. They offer skin care, make-up application, hair, nail, and massage services. Also, they've been voted the #1 Spa & Nail Salon in Central Ohio by ThisWeek Community News which obviously means they know what they're doing. So don't just take it from me, take it from other Columbus locals.
I was beyond thankful that the River Ridge staff reached out to me to experience a complimentary service. They have such a wide variety of services to choose from, I didn't know where to start. I'm very particular about my hair because 1) it's extremely thick and 2) it can take up to 2-3 hours to do, so I decided to try something new & different. I selected the River Ridge Signature Facial ($83.00) which included deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, a steam treatment, a masque and deep hydration, along with a hand/arm/shoulder massage. It was absolutely amazing! The photo above shows my after skin glow and yes, I was contemplating whether or not I wanted to post a photo with no make-up but here you go.
Why has it taken me so long to experience facial serenity? I keep my skin well kept through a three-step regimen of cleansing, moisturizing, and toning so getting this service was more about relaxation for me. My esthetician Dakota Thomas was extremely down to earth and very knowledgeable. I loved how comfortable I felt and how intimate the staff was with customizing my experience.
The photo above features the infamous selfie wall which many of their guests can get discount on their next service by posting before and after photos of their service. Amazing, right? Your entire experience will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I would highly recommend doing an entire spa day and scheduling multiple services such as a hair appointment, facial, and pedicure or manicure. If I had more time, I would have done it all.
