Restore and Relax: 3 Health Spa Getaways

Spa retreats are a great way to get the girls together for a day of pampering and indulgence. Whether you spend a day or a weekend, spas are a fantastic way to bond with your girlfriends and rejuvenate your mind and body at the same time. If this sounds like something you and your girlfriends would enjoy, check out these three spa destinations and book your package today:

1. Sanivan Holistic Spa in Hurlyeville, New York
A two-day retreat at this amazing spa costs just $375 per person and includes two night’s accommodation, a single body treatment, your taxes and gratuities. Additional treatments can be purchased at extra cost.

The spa is run by a husband and wife team, well-versed in holistic treatments. From herbal facials and shiatsu massages to oxygen treatments and an ozonated, heated pool, guests at the spa will leave feeling like they’ve been reborn.

This intimate retreat has only three bedrooms, lending itself to a private experience and individualized attention. The linens covering your bed are organic, waste is recycled and the grounds are immaculate. Spend time away from the massage table meandering through the meditation labyrinth or lounging with one of the five cats that call the spa home.

2. Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona

One of the most popular spa resorts in the nation, Canyon Ranch strives to be the very best; and it shows. Rates include accommodations, all meals, classes, activities, facility use and a generous service allowance. Four nights in a deluxe double room will cost you $4,070 and includes a $650 service fee allowance.

A popular option provided by the ranch is the prevention and healing nutrition service. With this service, guests can receive a vitamin and mineral evaluation that will provide you with expert, objective advice about supplements based on your age, history, diet and current health. Leave the spa with a customized list of recommended vitamin and mineral supplements.

Once you have received your supplement recommendations, stop by the Hands-On cooking class, taught by Canyon Ranch chefs, and learn new kitchen skills. In 120 minutes, you’ll learn how to make quick, simple and healthy meals that you and your whole family can enjoy.

3. Deerfield Spa in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

You can find this amazing spa in the Poconos, housed in a sprawling Victorian Inn. For just $155 a night, with a two-night minimum, guests are treated to accommodations filled with white wicker and beautiful linens. If you can drag yourself away from the comfort of your plush bed, you’ll find a myriad of activities:

Seaweed wraps, Swedish massage, Nuat Thai massage, LumiLift and fitness classes are just a few of the delightful treatments and activities that you can take part in. Treatments average under $100 a piece and will have you feeling rejuvenated. Aquatic karate, vegetarian meals and a two to one ratio of staff to guest are just a few of the things that make this spa a favorite east coast destination.

Spas are a fantastic way to relax your body and rejuvenate your spirit. From therapeutic massages to supplement consultations, the spas of today are much more focused on the body as a whole than they once were. Gather your girlfriends and head out for a fabulous weekend of pampering; your bodies will love you for it.
