Whether you're looking for a special way to celebrate your birthday or an epic spa day with your BFF, the treatments at these spas reign supreme. Take a peek at the massages, soaks and more that will take your breath away (and in one case give you a serious craving for chocolate).
1. Raindrop Aromatherapy Massage at Four Seasons Beverly Hills: Have you ever gotten caught in a rainstorm and ruined your fresh 'do? This is so not that moment. The raindrop aromatherapy massage is total bliss. During the session, drops of organic oil fall like rain onto your spine and are massaged in using a feathering technique. The massage is designed to release blockages and align energy throughout your body (it also feels really good). As a close second, the Punta Mita Tequila massage here also is a winner – particularly if you're battling a bad case of jet lag. During the treatment, tequila and sage are blended together to cleanse and detoxify the body, and it's designed to improve circulation, aid digestion and relieve the fatigue of jet lag. Sign us up!
2. Whipped Cocoa Bath at The Spa at Hotel Hershey: You can actually take a bath in chocolate at this Hershey Pa. spa (dying at the thought of this). For their Whipped Cocoa Bath, you hop in a tub full of foaming chocolate milk that softens and renews the skin. Top off that treatment with the Chocolate Dipped Strawberry treatment where you get a Strawberry Parfait scrub and your body is wrapped in a warm blanket after you are brushed down with chocolate fondue. For the cocoa massage, you're rubbed down with chocolate scented massage oil during your Swedish massage (anyone else craving a Hershey's chocolate bar right now?)
3. Watsu Massage at the Spa at Bellagio: When you've partied the night away in Sin City, this massage can help bring you back to life. During this Aquatic massage session, your body is massaged while you float in the spa's private 94-degree pool for 70 minutes. It combines Zen Shiatsu massage and stretching and will give you a new found sense of relaxation.4. Sake Soak at Shibui Spa at the Greenwich Hotel: Whether you love to sip sake or aren't old enough just yet to have a taste, you can literally soak in sake at this New York City spa in a tub surrounded by bamboo. The soak is a New Year's tradition in Japan and supposedly not only nourishes the skin, but helps clear evil spirits and make way for new beginnings.
5. Color and Light Wrap with Aura Imaging at the Omni Grove Park Inn: If you think this sounds a little intricate, you're right. Here's how it works: The treatment at this Asheville, N.C. spa starts with light-sensitive photography, which identifies your aura. Then, you're covered in an exfoliating and detoxifying clay body wrap and music, light, heat and aromatherapies work to help you achieve balance and harmony.
There's no better time than now to have a spa day with the girls. Everyone needs a little time for rest and relaxation every now and then.
