Tainos Wellness Centre. Jill Walker ( writes:

I have brought some of my favorite treatments with me from my last Spa (Manager of CuisinArt's Venus Spa). The Facial & Body Treatments are easily done in any room (decks & pool terraces are great, too). I feel incredibly blessed and lucky to have two women working with me- both professional, caring & excellent at what they do: Donna Gellman (from West End- studied Yoga & Body-Rolling in New York); and Vivian Massard (LaSirena- expert Cranial/Sacral therapist & Reflexologist).

I would like people to know that I have these therapeutic & pampering treatments mobile and ready to bring to private villas, resorts & homes. ('Instead of going to the Spa, the Spa comes to you!').

Feedback from a Reader. Randi Lee Mack of Rutgers University ( writes: Thank you so much for the web site. I fully enjoy getting your monthly news about Anguilla. My mother lives there and I've been coming down there for the past 24 years. Unfortunately, this year I cannot make it and your web site has lightened the blow or the withdrawal of not coming down. Your site gives me information as if I'm right there. I get to see many friends faces in your photo's . Thank you so much. Randi
