Finding a “Me Time Spa” for my next Vacation
For many preparing for the holidays begins months in advance. Planning the perfect holiday parties, shopping the malls for the ideal gifts, seeking creative ways to stay warm, preparing robust meals for the family, cleaning the house and decking the halls, wrapping the presents and knowing that soon the hustle and bustle will come to an end. It is only a matter of days and you will be cleaning up the aftermath and re-boxing all the décor and searching for the perfect means to de-stress from it all.
You have hosted the family, attended the office party and now is the time to find the peaceful refuge to rest and relax and revel in the memories of yet another holiday come and gone. Post holiday travel is on the rise and treating yourself is quickly becoming the new trend. It is a great time to get away from it all, leave the stress and the seasonal memories behind and begin to create new ones for the new year by pampering and spoiling yourself. It is time to exchange your exhaustion for energy!
What a great way to start a new year…. Tranquility and Serenity can be found in the aroma of lavender, the essence of sea salt, therapeutic organic oils and the warmth of rocks and mud to help restore balance in the body. It may be the simplicity of a fine manicure or a relaxing pedicure. It may be the reward of total smoothness resulting from a detoxifying exfoliating skin scrub or it may be the relaxation generated by a customized facial, a relaxing soak in the hydro tub followed by a lavender oil massage or maybe a foaming chocolate milk bath.
Now imagine the backdrop being in scenic filled vistas and valleys with sun-soaked warmth all around.
What do Tucson, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Sedona have in common? They are all in Arizona AND home to some of the country’s top spas. Arizona is a spa mecca! Along with the hot, dry climate, the state has long attracted alternative healers, which gives spa directors a fabulous talent pool to draw upon.
Whether you choose to soak in lavender oil at The Miraval Resort in Tucson, exfoliate at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, enjoy a sea salt skin scrub at The Sanctuary in Paradise Valley, hike the trails at Canyon Ranch, seek an energy vortex at Mii Amo in Sedona or relax and bond with the family at the top rated family spa, The Arizona Grand in Phoenix, you are sure to find the peace and placidity you deserve.
In a time of resolutions and starting anew with promises to eat right, exercise and take care of yourself, a mini vacation to a spa destination may be the perfect gift to give yourself. The majority of spa destinations are disability friendly, offer accessible accommodations and a trained staff that will work with you and your special needs, so that while pampering yourself it will done in an atmosphere of ease and enjoyment.
