Discover relaxation

Friday, November 2, 2007

Yesterday's hike has worn out your feet, today's shopping made your arms sore, and November's chill is creeping up your spine. Sounds like someone needs a nice, warm massage to relax those muscles and bring you back into the moment. Schedule an hour-long massage treatment, then let go of all those pesky problems and just enjoy the soothing comfort of trained hands. Add essential oil therapy for the ultimate in relaxation, or try an invigorating mud pack to bring back that youthful glow to your skin.

  If you've never had a massage before, put your worries aside. The client's comfort is top priority at every day spa, and all massage therapists are certified. Looking for something different? Try a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, or ask about Raindrop Therapy with different oils. There's also spa treatments for tired hands, feet, and even revitalizing facials. To chase the chill out of your bones, go for a hot stone treatment, and feel the warmth all the way to your core.

  Ready for a new you? Browse the listings below and find the spa that suits your needs best. After all, you do so much for others, it's time to do something for yourself.
