What better way to say I love you this Valentine's Day than with a relaxing, rejuvenating spa treatment? We offer treatments specific to seasons and holidays, and the benefits of these massage techniques, scrubs, wraps and aromatherapies will give your loved one something that means more and lasts longer than a stuffed teddy bear and roses.

Hot Stone Massage

Turn up the heat and the health benefits with this popular massage therapy. Traditionally done with smooth, water-heated stones, hot stone massages serve to increase blood flow, relax muscles, relieve stress and even ease chronic pain. These massages can be done on part or all of the body. The stones are placed on target areas and left to warm all over. In conjunction with manual massage, this treatment makes for a soothing, calming Valentine's Day gift.

Aromatherapy

The smell of specific essential oils can have lasting effects on a person. Give your valentine the gift of relaxation with an aromatherapy massage. For this happy occasion, oils such as lavender (for calming), frankincense (for deep breathing and meditation) and bergamot (for mood/anxiety relief) are three common oils you could choose. In addition to an essential oil massage, there are rooms where the smells of eucalyptus and other refreshing herbs accompany hot, warm steam.

Chocolate treatments

It wouldn't be Valentine's Day without some serious chocolate goodness. Luckily, you can skip the candies and go straight to the chocolate body wrap this year. Chocolate, when ingested and when applied topically can have benefits for your mind, body and overall health. The caffeine in chocolate helps stimulate circulation, and chocolate body wraps also serve to moisten, tighten and detoxify the skin, and the rich aroma can calm the mind.

Sugar scrubs

Keeping with the sweet theme, sugar scrubs are an excellent option for giving your significant other something that will leave him or her, quite literally, glowing and refreshed. Sugar scrubs are made up of a variety of different oils and sugar types, but overall the treatment serves to exfoliate the body and slough off dry skin. Depending on the oils used these scrubs can also replenish the skin's moisture, soothe irritated skin, and promote overall wellness.

Whatever treatment you choose this Valentine's Day, your loved one is sure to enjoy his or her day at the spa!
