The Great Escape into Spas

0512 The Great Escape

In today’s hectic lifestyle, it is easy to get overworked and overstressed. It is important to take time to relax and have a little bit of stress relief, which your family, friends and coworkers may thank you for! Letting loose and treating yourself to a spa visit is the perfect way to relax with a stress-reducing massage, revitalizing facial or a trendy haircut to create the new you. Spas offer an escape from an everyday stressful, deadline-driven life into a peaceful, relaxing and intimate environment. You can stay for an hour or all day, but chances are you will walk out feeling like a new person.

Feel Relaxed

Massages are one of the most popular services spas offer across Addison and the North Dallas Corridor. Customers generally have options from hand or foot massages, full body, deep tissue, Swedish or sports massages, depending on the spa. Moods can change drastically after a massage. Virginia Acosta, General Manager of Grand Spa, notices a person’s mood changing from stressed to a completely relaxed state when they are ready to walk out the door.

“We tell them, ‘you’re going to forget about everything,’” Acosta explained. “By the time they leave, they are asking if they can stay a little longer. That is the biggest compliment for us, people leaving exactly the way they envisioned, relaxed. Even for a 45-minute to an hour haircut to forget about anything else. It’s all about them.”

Feel Fresh

Facials and skin treatments are also a good way to relax. Exfoliating your skin can help you feel rejuvenated and fresh so you look and feel better.  Manicures and pedicures give you the opportunity to look your best with the treatment of intimate customer service. At L’Image you can receive custom facial treatments with some of the finest products.

“Our facials are customized using the finest ingredients from France, from Guinot to be exact,” said Dayton Mast of L’Image. “The Rene Guinot products are only found in the finest skincare settings and never sold in department stores. They are formulated for the most sensitive skin.  The Guinot Hydradermie facial is the most sought-after, with its results being immediately visible.”

Look as Good as You Feel

Aesthetic work is also available at many spas. You can have nonsurgical procedures done to help you look as good as you feel. Options available can include Botox injections for wrinkles, waxing and skin tightening. The Spa at Willow Bend and Dr. Lam offer a wide range of these services as well besides traditional massage and facial packages. Here you can have laser hair removal and even tattoo removal, all done with premium Alma Lasers.

Feel Great

Spas are also going outside the norm with service options. Many spas have even started targeting men who also need some relaxation in their lives. Some spas are making fitness programs an available option. For example, after having two services done at Cooper Spa, you are offered same-day use of the spa’s fitness facilities. Here you can work out with personal trainers, take a high-energy Zumba class and a deep-stretching yoga class.

No matter how stressed you can get from today’s fast-paced world, spas give you an opportunity of escape and relaxation to pamper yourself to look and feel better.
