Care for the body....Comfort for the Soul

Senseabilities provides an array of services to treat the “whole you”. From skin and body care treatments to massage and holistic well-being, we treat you from the inside and out. Our cozy boutique spa offers you personalized service from our staff that has more than 50 years of combined experience.

Our philosophy is to offer a place of comfort to all as soon as you walk through the purple door! From the use of natural elements to the warmth of our fireplace, our New Jersey holistic day spa is a sanctuary where you come to get away from it all.

Senseabilities knows your senses have the ability to heal and bring comfort. Through the satisfaction of the five senses, one can take care of the body and find comfort for the soul.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and services. Individualized attention and positive energy distinguish our treatments from large resort spas- you'll feel the difference the minute you walk in the door!
