Last night, I took myself on a date to the spa. I’m usually pretty good at resisting the many deals and offers that roll through my Inbox, but when I saw Spot Spa’s spring detox special earlier this month, honest to God, I booked it the very next day…because I know a good deal when I see one.
This wonder of a package includes a lemon-infused foot soak and full-body dry brushing followed by a 60-minute massage. The kicker is that you get to take home a full-sized bottle of fancy body oil home with you—Weleda’s Birch Cellulite Oil or Dr. Hauschka’s Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil (both cost around $30 at the co-op)—all for $150.
My practitioner Sarah was truly a down-to-earth delight. True to form, I asked lots of questions about beauty, health and wellness, including “what’s the proper technique for dry skin-brushing?” (I’ve been super intrigued since reading that it’s one of Miranda Kerr’s beauty secrets) and “is my going to kill me?” She had tons of good, honest input and sent me home with tons of tips and little nuggets of wisdom. Did I mention that she’s not afraid to dig really deep into those tensed-up, tender parts? Because she totally did, and I’m all the better for it. (Thank you Sarah!)
I left the spa feeling blissful, relaxed and deeply grounded, which is exactly what I was hoping for. And although I know $150 is nothing at all to sniff at, I felt like for what I got, that price is a fantastic value. The Spring Detox special is available at both Spot Spa locations now through June 15th. You have to call to book it…the number for the Northeast location is 612.331.4182 and the Uptown location can be reached at 612.823.spot. It feels good to treat yo self!
