It’s that time of year again. That time where you return to work after the holidays expected by all to be rested, relaxed, and refreshed after a week or two off. However, most of us people who live in the real world (between bottles of wine, at least) have family members we don’t care for, a mountain of Santa-related credit card debt, and spent most of our break either without power or trapped in an airport somewhere. Add all that with something they’re calling an “Artic Vortex” and with Easter still over three months away and you have a lot of people teetering on the edge of something seriously Girl, Interrupted. Sound familiar?
Well my Winonas, to help you get back to the grind without throwing something at someone, we’ve gathered up some spa packages that’ll have you emotionally presentable for the office without breaking the bank…
Rhythm Spa: Couples Massage and Pedicure
Rhythm Spa has exactly what you and your hubby need to get back to work without killing each other. Let’s be real, passive-aggressive in-laws alone are why the holidays can really do a number on your relationship. For $149, you can both get a 60-minute massage along with a relaxing pedicure. That’s definitely cheaper than a divorce. FYI, you don’t actually have to be in a relationship to get the deal. (Hint: Gay Best Friend.)
Elmwood Spa: Me Time
Again, after all the in-laws, children, drunk uncles, et cetera, some “Me Time” is probably exactly what you need to talk you off the proverbial edge. Elmwood Spa has an amazing “Me Time” package that’s 3.5 hours and includes an ElmLine Essential Facial, a 20-minute massage, 3-course lunch, and water therapy all for $159. Best part? If you bring a man, you get 20% off. (Hint: Gay Best Friend.)
Jiva Spa: Rejuvenation Package
Jiva’s Rejuvenation Package is a little on the pricey side ($199) but totally worth it if you not only want to feel refreshed but also look the part. It includes a deep hydrating facial, eye treatment, manicure and pedicure, paraffin wax treatment (on hands and feet), hydro active mineral body scrub, and a hot oil scalp massage. Ugh… yes to all of the above please.
Body Blitz: $44 Tuesdays
On Tuesdays, you can get access to all of Body Blitz’s water therapy pools for a relaxing splash at only $44. This includes the warm Dead Sea salt pool, hot Epsom salt pool, the steam room, as well as the infrared sauna.
