When I was offered the opportunity to have a free service of my choosing at Citrón, I almost passed out (but not before checking the website for massages). Located in Wayland Square on the East Side of Providence, this intimate nail bar, wellness center and medi-spa is passionate about each of it’s clients and services offered- certainly there is someone on your holiday list the deserves to be pampered as only Citrón can!
From the moment I walked in the door, I was transported out of Providence and into a cozy, tranquil space.
With neutral colors and pops of orange, natural sunlight and cushy but supportive furniture, I settled in with my mason jar of water (complementary drink offered… mimosa, anyone?), a freshly made mini fruit tart, and filled out my new client card.
My masseuse welcomed me from the doorway and guided me to the massage room- which was the perfect temperature! As I laid on my back on the most comfortable table (I’ve had quite a few massages), I closed my eyes and took in the amazing scents of my surroundings. The salon uses mostly Aveda products, which are natural and have such a clean and relaxing smell, I found it hard not to fall fast asleep! As I rolled to my stomach, special attention was given to my problem areas- shoulders (hello baby carrying) and hamstrings (running)- with the most perfect detail and time.
As I dressed, I felt the most peaceful physical feeling pass over me since having Addie. I had done something for me. I had closed my eyes, relaxed my shoulders, felt the healing and soothing powers of hot stones, and let go of so much tension in my limbs. I had surrendered to the amazing sounds, smells and atmosphere around me. I was renewed.
With a fresh glass of water to sip, I lingered a few minutes chatting with the woman at the front desk. I felt like I’d been there before, which is the best feeling to someone who doesn’t get to do things like this often. Many times I feel intimidated, but at Citrón, from the moment you walk in the door, you are a valued client. I cannot wait to check out the nail bar with my bestie and tryout their stress fix manicure and pedicure!
