Encouragement to go to the spa for a little R&R? Sign us up. From April 11th-17th, Spa Week is back nationwide, spreading a message of the importance of taking care of ourselves by treating injuries and stress, as they have reminded for over a decade with their biannual events, enabling millions to lead healthier lifestyles. We don’t need any convincing. As recently heard in a conversation, “A day at the spa can cure literally anything,” and in these harried times, we couldn’t agree more.spa2No matter where you live, there are hundreds of spa, wellness, and fitness facilities participating in this event, offering premium full-service, highly discounted treatments of $50 each. On a normal day, these treatments are $100-$500. Deal! For example, Haven Spa in New York City offers a unique Geek Massage, created to address and relieve the ailments that are created from hours of computer usage. Another example is Holistic Touch in Virginia, which offers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. With this natural, non-surgical face-lift, you can experience a great improvement in skin tightness, clarity, and evenness of tone. In Illinois, Spa Oceana offers a Stress Relief Treatment, which is a water-based, stress-relief body treatment, to wash your cares away, or in California enjoy a Signature Korean Scrub and Hot Oil Massage at Tikkun Holistic Spa. Indulge in an all-inclusive treatment featuring a body scrub and calming body wash, shampoo, conditioning treatment, vitamin C facial mask and a warm all massage.
