For many, the holidays are a stressful time of the year. Although you may get a holiday break, sometimes you need a break from your break. What better way to relax and get some much needed “me” time than by heading to your favorite spa?

Visiting the spa for a day or weekend of R&R can provide a number of benefits. A trip to the spa can reduce hormone levels, boost your immunity, reduce stress, reduce pain and boost your mood. You work hard every day and you deserve a break. No matter what your favorite spa treatment is, you’re bound to find some peace and serenity; after all, spas are designed to help you relax.

Whether you’ve been to a spa before or it’s your first time, try something new to welcome in the new year. Below is a list of a few of the most common types of massages. The new year is all about change and we want you to feel your best in 2015. If you normally get a deep-tissue massage and a facial, try a hot-stone massage and a manicure on your next visit. Breaking your routine will help you feel renewed and refreshed, making you ready for the change that comes with the new year. Head back to work after your holiday break looking and feeling better than ever.
