I had been thinking about a blog topic on “ what was my most unusual spa treatment/activity”.  Initially, I had one thought, and it may be part of a future blog.   But in thinking more about my spa experiences, I realized spas, and especially destination spas, are more than spas… With things like life coaching, or […]

I recently was on vacation (and spa-ing) in Bali.   It was one of those once in a lifetime opportunity. I will admit to hoping for some life-altering experience a la Eat Pray Love.   And while maybe it wasn’t “everyone has a little love affair an Bali” and there was no visit to a medicine man, […]

Happy 4th of July! I was singularly focused on crab, specifically a crab roll.  So, I organized my thinking this 4th of July on a non-traditional alternative – spa-influenced of course – to the Hot Dogs and Hamburger of the 4th of July.  Of course, there are many hamburger alternatives that you see on the […]

Traveling, especially when you are not headed to a spa can be challenging on health and wellness routines.  I was traveling for work, and after a few weeks living out of a suitcase and long days and dinners with colleagues, I was definitely missing a spa-inspired lifestyle.  I wondered I could Live Spa even while […]

Recently when I visited the Grand Spa at Tabacon Thermal Resort and Spa , I noted that while at the spa, instead of the usual spa water and herbal teas, they offered a small fruit smoothie.  They had a number of offerings, as depicted in a pamphlet of “Fruit Therapy” This really resonated with me from […]

Chocolate Mousse – Spa-Style

Spa cuisine isn’t about restriction and deprivation.  I have had some truly decadent desserts at destination spas like the Lodge at Woodloch, Mii Amo and Miraval.   One of my favorites is a Bitter Chocolate Cremeaux and I have been working with a variation for home.   Like all spa cuisine, the key is about […]

Digital Detox

I think one of the things I love about spa time is that I get a break from technology for a period of time.  The phone is silenced and put away while I enjoy a massage or facial.   And on an extended destination spa, my phone for once is not my constant companion.   […]

As its the new year, how many people have something about trying something new for this year?  Spas offer a wonderful opportunity to try something new.   Maybe its just a new service — like Watsu or Chi Ne Tsang.  Or it could be a new style of yoga such as Kundalini, Bikram (Hot) or […]
