Senses Spa and Salon at the IP Casino Resort Spa

Spa Overview - An Interview With Mary Powers, Spa Supervisor

By Jennifer Weis


Can you provide our readers a brief overview of the spa and property?
Senses Spa & Salon is a full service spa offering several types of massages, as well as body wraps and body scrubs. We are now certified to perform pre-natal massages as well. We have facials, chemical peels, and waxing services. We are also a full service salon offering hair services, pedicures and manicures. Our spa is approximately 19,000 square feet including 19 treatment rooms. We have two couple's suites and several treatment rooms overlooking the Back Bay. Senses Spa also has a state of the art fitness center. We have separate men's and women's facilities with steam rooms, dry saunas and Jacuzzis. We also have a co-ed lounge and steam room. We provide fully stocked showers and vanity areas for the guests to use.

If someone is vacationing in the area why is a stop at the spa a must?
Senses Spa and Salon is a place where you can come to relax and be pampered. We have the friendliest staff that has your best interest at heart. Not only do we have the nicest spa on the coast but we also pride ourselves on hiring the best therapist. We constantly ensure we are keeping up with the industry trends. Our goal is for everyone to have such an amazing experience that they can't wait to return.

How do you differ from the other spas in the area?
We are the only spa on the coast that has an arctic snow room in the women's wet area and concept showers in the men's wet area. We are also proud of our couples lounge, steam room and couples massage suite that overlooks the Back Bay of Biloxi.

What is the Signature or most common service?
Our signature service is the Rock the Senses Massage. While other spas may offer a hot stone massage, Rock the Senses is an 80 minute massage that offers hot and cold stones and the massage therapists must be certified to perform this service. Our most common service is the Senses massage which is a full body Swedish massage. The massage therapists use long relaxing strokes with medium pressure to relieve tension and stress.

Who do you cater too? Any niches or types of groups you cater to?
We not only cater to our casino guests, we have an extremely loyal local clientele. We also have many guests visit our spa even though they may be staying at other casino hotels.

Any upcoming/current specials/packages
We are very excited about our upcoming Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 1st. We will have several drawings for spa gift baskets and our skin care representatives will be present to answer questions and give out samples. We are starting our Christmas Specials the same day. We are offering a Sweet Bourbon Holiday Scrub for 50 or 80 minutes. This is a full body exfoliation followed by a full body moisturizer. Our skin care special will be the Hot Apple Cider Facial which includes towels dipped in hot apple cider scented water wrapped around the hands followed by a moisturizing hand massage. Our pedicure and manicure special for Christmas is the Caribbean Holiday Escape Pedi and Mani. We use a coconut milk eggnog foot soak, pineapple-coconut water scrub and a sweet cream lotion.
