Spa Services

Relaxation Plus is focused on your total wellness! We offer a variety of other services that will help you reach your goals.

Ion Cleanse
A detox water foot bath that is a natural healing tool with no harmful side effects. The benefits of using this system on a regular basis helps to prevent the accumulation of toxins in the body, thus substantially reducing the changes of illness and disease. A few of the many benefits of removing harmful toxins include: Increased Energy, Immune System Booster, Improve Memory & Sleep and Pain Relief from Gout and Arthritis.

Microdermabrasion is a painless, noninvasive, skin-rejuvenation procedure using combination of a fine abrasive tip or crystals and vacuum suction applied to the skin. The vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. Makeup and nonirritating creams can usually be applied right after microdermabrasion.

Body Wrap
The M’lis Professional Contour Wrap may be used in two ways: for inch loss, or for detoxification and lymphatic cleansing. This amazing wrap does both for the body. The contour body wrap helps free and remove trapped waste in the connective tissue, eliminating internal disfiguring deposits and stimulating inch loss. Wraps are often sold in a series of treatments to maximize inch loss and cleansing.

Paraffin Hand Dip
This treatment for the hands is used to make the skin smooth and to give it a more radiant look. This treatment also improves blood circulation to the skin and thereby, improves the skin tone.

Our Staff



Owner / Massage Therapist

My name is Carolyn Sanftleben and I am the owner of Relaxation Plus which was established in 2004. I am a 2003 graduate of Sister Rosalind School of Massage, Fargo ND. I enjoy doing therapeutic and deep tissue massage. My specialty is CranioScral Therapy (CST) which I have been practicing since 2000. Through my training of CST, I have developed a deeper understanding of how CST can help children and adults alike.



Massage Therapist

Hello, my name is Tiffany Thornton and I graduated from The Salon Professional Academy in February 2015, which is also when I started at Relaxation Plus. I enjoy doing Therapeutic, Swedish, and Pregnancy Massage, as well as Reiki and Reflexology. I chose Massage Therapy as my career because I love helping people in any way possible. I moved to Moorhead in November of 2013 from Oklahoma. Before moving, I worked for 4 years as a certified nurse assistant in nursing homes, and 2 years as front office staff in a doctor’s office. Health and helping others has been a major part of my life, and massage therapy has only helped me to enhance my abilities to help others. In my spare time, I love to go fishing, swimming, camping, boating, or anything that brings me outside to connect with nature.

Massage Therapist

Hello, my name is Kaicy and I took all of my massage classes from Minnesota School of Business in St. Cloud, MN. I have came to find that I really love deep tissue massages because it is a modality that you can see and feel almost instantly! I also enjoy Swedish massages as well as reflexology. I am organically from Colorado but moved to the land of 10,000 lakes for the excellent large mouth bass fishing! My family and I fish and camp as often as we can. I also love a nice hot day to lay on the beach with a great book. I am looking forward to providing a relaxing and wonderful experience for you!
