Learn about the benefits of chocolate-covered treatments
Chocolate is synonymous with Valentine’s Day in my mind. It seems many spas are on the same page given the chocolate-infused treatments on menus in February and created for couples all year round.

Like many of the wellness-minded folks, I got a flu vaccine in the fall in hopes of protecting myself from one of the common winter illnesses.

Luckily spas and resorts are here to help weary travelers...

Model Calendar

Check out the creative marketing plan from a Southern wellness retreat
Every year I make sure to get a paper calendar.
