We are too old for two twelve hour days in the car! Argh! By the time we arrived in Bar Harbor, we could barely move and a massage seemed in order. We tried to book with our hotel, but no availability, so a quick search and we found "Tree of Life"---so happy we did! On Cottage Street, only a short walk from our accommodations (though we appreciated their off-street parking as we went for a muscle loosening hike in the Park first!), our experience at the Tree of Life Spa was excellent from first contact to final farewell. When we called to make the appointment, great care was made to inquire as to our needs, our preference in the sex of the masseuse, any special health concerns---especially important for DH, who has arthritis in his spine. When we arrived, we were welcomed warmly and enjoyed a chat with the very kind owner before our masseuses were ready. DH and I had chosen a "couple massage"---that means we each had our own masseuse but we shared a room. Carrie and Katie were great. They had trained at the spa---which is also a school---and they had learned well. After our hour massage, DH and I were puddles of relaxation. Our sore, stiff muscles were just a memory. Our visit to The Tree of Life Spa was enjoyable through-out and a real blessing and it was all we could do not to book an appointment for the next day---it could become addictive!
