Burning the Midnight Oil

Clients who celebrate Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, are no strangers to the power of oil. However, they may not realize all the skincare benefits these natural elixirs hold. This season, spas are offering a wider variety of treatments to appeal to holiday spa-goers. Those infused with oils offer stressed clients full-body rejuvenation and a connection to many healing traditions. Rancho La Puerta (Tecate, Mexico) beckons guests to relax with the Head-to-Toe Candle Oil Massage ($160, 90 minutes). This aromatic treatment uses warm, scented oil from a massage-oil candle and a gentle massage with long strokes from scalp to toes to improve blood circulation and help guests unwind. Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa (San Diego) offers guests the Happy Holidays to Me! ($185, 75 minutes) throughout the month of December. This treatment includes a special Keratin and oil scalp treatment, neck and shoulder massage, and foot reflexology. What better way to celebrate the season and get a head start on wellness for the New Year!
