Whether you’re seeking quick solace with a solo treatment or a full day of pampering to replenish, spas abound from the Mexican border to Santa Barbara. So how to choose which one to visit? Here are 10 day spas that will relax and rejuvenate.
Float Luxury Spa
Energy flow a bit blocked? This Santa Barbara spa’s signature Float Acu-Massage might help. It’s based on acupuncture, the ancient Chinese healing practice. During the treatment, a doctor of acupuncture and oriental medicine inserts needles into your skin for 25 minutes, followed by a personalized massage focusing on your areas of pain. A friend said the combination made her feel like she was floating. If needles aren’t your thing, get cocooned in the Ultimate Body Facial, a green tea and ginger enzyme wrap finished with glycolic peppermint cream–it left me feeling refreshed and tingling from top to toe.
