Benefits of Paraffin Treatments

Posted by Yvonne on Nov 30, 2011 in Retreat Services, Skincare, Specials and offerings, relaxation therapy


Paraffin wax therapy has been around since ancient Roman times. Its uses are varied but many people enjoy how it refreshes and softens the skin. It is a deeply relaxing experience and a great way to treat dry hands and feet.

Paraffin wax is known to speed healing and soothe pain in joints and muscles. It is an effective and safe way to remove dead skin cells, increase circulation, moisturize dry skin and help alleviate the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.  In addition, it is used to lessen the pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms and chronic pain conditions.

Paraffin is wonderful at moisturizing your skin because of its ability to form a protective waterproof coating on your skin, helping your body retain its natural oils.

Pamper yourself this holiday season with one of our hand and foot paraffin massage treatments.  Visit our special offers page or contact us for more details.

A peek inside: Introducing Nimue “Lady of the Lake”

Posted by Yvonne on Oct 29, 2011 in About Avalon, General, Retreat Services, Specials and offerings


Barn Board CabinHere at Avalon we are home to some of our area’s oldest and most unique cabins.  We want to introduce you to our beautiful dwellings and tell you a little about the history of each one. We will highlight each of our special cabins in upcoming blog posts.

In today’s post, we want to introduce you to our Nimue, which means “Lady of the Lake.”

This cabin was built in 1997 from trees that were grown on this property. Nimue has a nine foot window overlooking the lake and loft that will sleep two in intimate comfort.

My father loved to stay in this cabin and left behind a gift for others to enjoy. It is a carving of a wood spirit originating from Germany. It is believed that only the pure at heart can see the spirits in the trees.
