Is a Day Spa a little piece of heaven on earth? If you have a little bit of time, and a little bit of money, spending a few hours or a full day at a spa can be a wonderful relaxing experience.
Visiting a Spa does not have to involved a full day or many days. While there are plenty of Spas that will welcome you for a week or a month, complete with room, board, and a large price tag, there are also plenty of Day Spas that will host you only for the day or for a few hours. You can get away from the daily stress and anxiety for just a few hours and come away feeling like a new person.
Spas are no longer for just for the rich. There are plenty of options and packages that can meet a wide range of budgets and schedules.
And what will you do at the Day Spa? You might consider some of these treatment options:
Massage – Typically the most popular type of treatment at a Day Spa, there are few way that can relax you more thanly a massage. And there are many types to choose from.
Chair Massage – This is a simple and non-invasive way to get an introduction to massage. You stay fully clothed and sit in a special chair. The therapist will focus on your back, neck, and shoulders.
Relaxation Massage – You undress to your level of comfort and the therapist uses massage strokes that are light or deep, as you request. This is a great way to calm your nervous system and relax your tight muscles.
Hot Stone Massage – This is a wonderful experience where the therapist uses heated basaltic river rocks as massage tools and to provide deep penetrating heat.
Facial – A facial cleans, nourishes, and exfoliates the skin to promote healthy, clear, and well-hydrated skin. A facial is the second most popular spa service after massage. A facial may involved skin analysis, cleaning, massage, mask, and the application of toners or creams.
Manicures and Pedicures – Get an aromatic salt rub, hydrating mask or paraffin dip that can make “getting your nails” or ores done a much more luxurious experience.
Who Provides the Service?
In many states, the massage therapist and the esthetician (a person who does facials) must be specially trained and licensed. They are professionals and work hard to ensure your comfort, health, and enjoyment of the treatment.
What does it cost?
Just like eating at a restaurant can cost $ 20 or $ 200, there is a wide range of costs for Day Spas. A facial might cost between $ 50 – $ 100, and a hour-long massage may cost between $ 50 – $ 150. There are always plenty of extras you can add on to your experience – special products, extra steps, etc.
