One&Only Palmilla, a premier spa resort located on the Sea of Cortez sees a lot of stressed-out guests. (I mean, who doesn’t escape to Mexico when they need a little R&R?) In response, they’ve decided to offer a 3-day Stress Management Journey to help alleviate guests’ pent-up stress. Says Spa Director, Kerensa Langitan, “many guests complain of high stress levels, but in particular stress that relates to worry, fear and uncertainty. What we would term emotional stress.” The program is unique in that it not only addresses current stress, but helps to prevent future stress. In conjunction withÂ daily yoga, and a diet geared for wellness (including juicing), guests of the 3-day program will get to sample such spa therapies as ESPA’s Holistic Stone Massage, which utilizes black Mexican obsidian stones, said to relieve depression, as well as QXCI (Quantum Xeroid Consciousness Interface) a biofeedback therapy that identifies stressors and imbalances in the body. Follow that with a nap on your balcony, overlooking the beautiful Sea of Cortez, and you’ve created a recipe for permanent stress-relief. And, I thought that the beach was stress-reducing by itself!
Ahh, I love fall…the leaves, the fall produce, and the fresh, cool air offer a respite from the sunny days of summer. This fall, check out the Spa at Colonial Williamsburg’s new Autumn Escape Package, which offers quite a deal. Starting at $165/per person/per night, the package includes one treatment per night of stay. Special fall spa treatments are available, including the organic Harvest Facial, featuring pumpkin, a natural exfoliant, as well as cinnamon, oregano, rosemary, thyme and gingerâ€”all included to help shed any lingering summer sun damage.
If you’re in the New York area, be sure to visit the Lodge at Woodloch, one of my favorite spas owned by John & Ginny Lopis, long-time spa veterans. Not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful fall colors of the Northeast, you’ll also get to sample such treatments as the Autumn Apple Body Polish; the fruit acids help to exfoliate, while the heavenly apple- and vanilla-infused moisturizer soothes dry skin. Yum!
