Time to Unwind

Wrap up the year with these stress-relieving spa treatments.



For a time of year that’s supposed to be filled with happiness, the holidays often leave some filled with angst and stress. To avoid feeling overwhelmed this month, take time to take care of yourself. A spa visit for a therapeutic treatment, like a massage or a detoxifying body wrap, will help lift your spirits. “A massage is physically and mentally therapeutic, which is why you see pro athletes, coaches and trainers using it all the time,” says Sheila Bracewell, director of The Spa at Orlando Hilton. So, take an hour out of your busy schedule and get one of the following spa treatments. You can thank us later.
 

 

Rejuvenate Your Skin

Get healthy, radiant skin with a seasonal scrub or body polish at The Spa at Hilton Orlando. Increase blood flow and speed up the healing process of tired muscles with a deep-tissue massage—a 10-minute steam beforehand loosens muscles and maximizes the therapeutic effect.

Cleanse Your Spirit

Boost your lymphatic system while contouring curves with a body wrap at The Beauty Spot in College Park. A peppermint pedicure with lower leg massage is an effective remedy for chapped, dehydrated feet.

Soothe Your Tired Soles

At Winter Park’s Euro Day Spa & Salon, a foot reflexology or neuromuscular massage will relieve sore muscles and help prevent symptoms of various ailments, while a salt glow or brown sugar scrub can improve skin’s elasticity and replenish moisture loss.
