Happy Spring Break! Whether you’ll be enjoying some time at home with the kids or taking off on a much-needed vacation, spring break is the perfect time to recharge.

Of course, we personally think that there is nothing better than a day at the spa to relax and rejuvenate. We take pride in working hard for you, so whether you come in for a skin service, a hair cut, or a spa treatment, we promise you will leave feeling refreshed! But until you can come in and see us, try some of these great relaxation techniques:

Take A Detox Bath

If you can’t make it into the spa this week, you can still treat yourself to a restorative skin treatment. You can create a detox bath mix from Epson salts, baking soda, sea salt, ground vinegar, and vinegar. The salts soothe any aches and pains in the body while soothing the skin and gently clearing up blemishes, the baking soda refreshes and energizes, the ginger supports circulation, and the vinegar naturally softens.  Mix together the ingredients and keep safe in a sealable container:

2 cups Epsom salts

2 cups Baking soda

2 cups Sea salt

5 tbsp Ground ginger

When its time to take your detox bath, add a scoop of your mixture and 1 cup vinegar to running water.

Go For A Swim

Vigorous exercise is proven to lift the spirits and promote feelings of wellbeing by releasing feel-good endorphins. Swimming in particular has been shown to promote relaxation and can even reduce depression. In addition to the changes in the brain, the physical act of swimming involves a repetitive stretch-and-relax pattern and rhythmic deep breathing. Like yoga, another form of exercise that is known for aiding relaxation, swimming allows people to a take a break from the noise and stress in their minds and promotes meditative thinking. Spring break is a great time to get back into the pool – the days are getting warmer, so you can now comfortably swim outside as well as inside.

 Get A Massage

Spa Resort

We offer several different styles of massage, like Swedish, Deep Tissue, and  Hot Stone. Massage is a wonderful way to unwind, plus it provides plenty of other benefits. Research has suggested that massage may aid anxiety, headaches, stress-related insomnia, sports injuries, and fibromyalgia. Receiving a healing touch also promotes a sense of well being and overall happiness.
