Due to the harsh reality of the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to completely revamp the usage of our motel spa areas. To learn about the spas (and because we hope to bring back the former way of usage!), we have left our old description of the areas in text not highlighted in green below. Until you see differently on this page, spa treatments (e.g. Swedish and deep tissue massage) are currently not available, however usage of the motel hot tub, dry sauna, and steam room/relaxation room is now available again for our guests for $20 per person for your whole stay (not per day)!! Your card key will be activated to allow for access into the spa areas and the same $20 also gives you access to the Stratton Falls spa and seasonal swimming pool! Time slots for usage must be scheduled in advance and the new spa rules are as follows:
Hot Tub and Dry Sauna: The hot tub and dry sauna room located in The Roxbury South’s Shimmer Spa is available in 45-minute time slots from 8:00am to 8:00pm. For your safety, for any given time slot, usage is limited to groups traveling together only. We must ask you to be punctual with your departure because our staff comes in to sanitize and clean the area in 15-minute time slots between each usage. Back-to-back time slots cannot be scheduled for the same group unless pre-approved by management. While you are in your time slot, feel free to use the spa phone to call the front office to see if you can stay longer. Multiple time slots are possible throughout the day but depend upon demand. A time slot can be last-minute, so if you see a slot available on the online calendar, feel free to grab it! AND IF YOU CANNOT MAKE YOUR SCHEDULED TIME SLOT WE ASK YOU TO PLEASE PLEASE CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT SO THAT IT FREES UP THE TIME FOR OTHER GUESTS WHO MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SCHEDULE A SLOT! JUST CALL OR STOP BY THE FRONT OFFICE AND WE CAN CANCEL IT FOR YOU.
Steam and Relaxation Room: The large steam room and relaxation room located in The Roxbury Motel’s Shimmer Spa North is available in one and half hour time slots from 8:30am to 4:30pm daily. For those of you who have stayed with us before, you will realize how cool this is due to the beauty and large space of this room! Usage for the area is also limited to groups traveling together and all of the same rules apply for this area as for the hot tub and dry sauna area above. Please note that the treatment rooms are off-limits, but the beautiful relaxation area and steam room and showers you and the people traveling with you will have all to yourself! When we start offering spa treatments again we may have to adjust the time slots usage for this area.
All that glitters is not gold. All that sparkles is not silver. But if something shimmers can it make you slimmer? We think it can. Shiny, pretty atmospheres make you smile and when you smile you’re happy and when you’re happy you’re energetic and when you’re energetic your happiness lasts even longer! Well, maybe not always, but when you stay at The Roxbury Motel you have not just one, but a choice of two places to go to where you can relax, either sit in a hot tub or sauna or steam room; cool off in a shower made out of soothing river rock or glimmering green mosaic tile; warm yourself back up in front of a dancing fireplace or a calming mountain-village view; and then start the process all over again or go back to your room for a snooze. And if that’s not enough, with your spa pass you can also go check out the spas and pool at our sister location, The Roxbury at Stratton Falls!
Let’s get one thing straight off the bat. The Shimmer Spa at The Roxbury Motel is NOT a big full-service spa with separate male and female changing areas and hallways full of multiple treatment rooms with attendants serving you fruit smoothies or gooping them all over your skin. The Shimmer Spa is actually comprised of two different areas: The Shimmer Spa South in our main motel buildings where you can go to relax in an intimate 600 sq ft “mini-spa” made of shimmering iridescent mosaic tiles complete with a hot tub, a dry sauna, a fireplace, a bathroom, and a wonderful shower made of black river rock that massages your feet while you take a shower. OR indulge yourself at The Shimmer Spa North across the street where you’ll find 1200sf of spa space including ‘The Green Steam’ (a large steam area made out of 100% recycled green car windshield glass), two completely private treatment rooms including one large enough for a simultaneous couples’ massage, and a whimsically elegant relaxation room library where you can shut out the outside world while lounging in cushy chaises or perusing our generous selection of coffee table books (we have temporarily removed the coffee table books for your safety during the pandemic, oh how we hope to bring them back soon!).
Usage of both of the spa facilities is just $20 per person per stay (not per day) and both spa areas are open from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Access to the spas is put onto your room key when you purchase a $20 spa pass and the key will also give you access to the Spa and Pool at our Stratton Falls location!
Please note that we strongly suggest booking your spa treatments as far in advance as possible. Time slots fill up quickly and we cannot always guarantee that treatments will be available if you do not book at least 48 hours prior to your stay. The Shimmer Spa North and South and spa treatments are available to guests of The Roxbury only; they are not open to the general public.
The following is our current spa menu. Please contact us directly to begin your relaxation and rejuvenation journey!
Swedish Massage $115-55 min/$170-85 min
A full body relaxation massage to enhance circulation, relieve muscle tension & increase flexibility. Long gliding strokes & warm oil help your mind & body to rest & release.
Deep Tissue Massage $130-55 min/$190-85 min
Various techniques are used to access deeper tissues and target specific muscle groups, fascia and tendons to aid in recovery from injury, maintain health from everyday overuse and target “knots” and other imbalances. A perfect choice if you have a problem area or two that requires detailed attention.
Reflexology $130-55 min/$190-85 min
Based on the theory of zones and areas of the feet and hands that correspond with organs, glands and areas of the body as a whole, reflexology works to promote health throughout the entire body as well as clears energetic pathways. Our Reflexology massage includes a relaxing Swedish massage with special time and attention focused on the zones and corresponding areas of the feet, hands and scalp.
Hot Stone Therapy $145-55 min/$215-85 min
The warmth of the stones not only feels luxurious, but aids in melting your tension away and promoting relaxation. The heat allows your Massage Therapist to work deeper and more efficiently by increasing local circulation and easing discomfort in your muscles and other tissues.
Couples Teaching Massage $230-2 hours
You and your partner receive a Swedish massage one after the other with a Massage Therapist teaching you how to give your partner’s body exactly what it needs. The session is completely tailored to the expectations and needs of each couple. A great way to get some foundational skills to use at home together.
Simultaneous Couples Massage
$230-55 min/$340-85 min
You and your partner enjoy a relaxing massage together in the same room with 2 Massage Therapists. The price is based on Simultaneous Swedish massages but we can accommodate any 2 types of treatments you like. Please specify which type of treatment you would each prefer when booking.
Saltglow $145-55 min
A Salt Glow is more of a skin treatment than a massage but many find the sessions relaxing and rejuvenating. A blend of Himalayan sea salt crystals & healing oils are applied while our practitioner “scrubs” your body to remove dead skin cells and other impurities. You will then shower off your salt blend and finish your session with locally-made & super-nourishing body butter massaged into your freshly scrubbed skin. A wonderful treat to reveal a newer, softer you.
Aromatherapy- Add to any treatment for $15
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from various plants that have unique therapeutic properties. The oils are taken in through inhalation or skin absorption during your massage. Aromatherapy amplifies your massage benefits by providing additional healing properties. Be sure to let your Massage Therapist know if you have any known allergies or sensitivities.
We strongly suggest booking treatments as far in advance as possible—especially for simultaneous treatments. Time slots fill up quickly and we cannot always guarantee they will be available if you do not book prior to your stay.
The above rates do not include gratuity.
