Our location features beautiful and vibrant offices with a touch of reclaimed wood and other natural materials that enhances relaxation and peacefulness.

Maine Bodyworks is known for its deep, therapeutic work. Tatiana specializes in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, where she stands on your back, staying balanced by holding bars that are secured to the ceiling. She uses her heels, instep and toes to apply deep and constant pressure to the back, gluts, ham- strings and calves. This type of massage is ideal for people with tight ligaments or those with tense shoulders and hips

Developing a relationship with each client is one of the most important parts of our practice. Working together, we can help you to create a treatment plan and goals for your health and wellness.

It’s All About the Tea

I love all things tea; the civility, the cultural traditions, and the accoutrements. But most of all, I love the leaf. When I thought about opening Nellie’s in 2003, it was very much the “trappings” of tea that were attractive to me. But, as I began really studying tea, becoming Maine’s only Certified Tea Specialist in 2009, I became enchanted with the mysteries of the leaf. That black, green, oolong, and white teas all come from the same botanical is such an amazing phenomenon. I love sharing my passion for the leaf with others who want to learn.

A Buyer’s Guide To Windows From A-B.E.S.T. WINDOW

Why is it important to buy local?

A-B.E.S.T. Window is the only company in the state of Maine that manufactures, sells, and installs their own windows. Studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, rather than nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms - continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community. Buying from a locally-owned company allows the business to hire more local people. How many years have you been in business?

A-B.E.S.T. Window has been in business since 1985. By choosing A-B.E.S.T., you’re choosing a proven company that has a demonstrated record of quality, integrity, and excellence for 32 years.

Can I clean this window from the inside?

Both sashes of an A-B.E.S.T. double hung window tilt in for easy cleaning of all glass surfaces from the inside. No need to go outside or get on a ladder.

How long will the installation take?

With their team of factory-trained,

experienced, window installation specialist, the installation of an A-B.E.S.T. vinyl replacement window should take either one or two days. A-B.E.S.T. windows are custom made to fit the exact size of the window it’s replacing. Don’t be fooled by new construction windows which only come stock size and necessitate costly carpentry, inside trim, outside trim, plaster, sheetrock and paint.

Why do some window companies insist on pressure selling me into a decision instead of letting me do some comparison shopping?

At A-B.E.S.T. Window they are so confident in their product, installation, service and price that they encourage customers to comparison shop. The reason other companies are willing to give you such a “great deal” tonight and only tonight is because they know if you comparison shop you will find a better deal. Insist on comparison shopping and don’t be pressured into quick decisions.

If you have any additional questions regarding replacement windows, please feel free to contact us at 799-6771 or sales@abestwindow.com.
