A Heartfelt Reminder

While it’s easy to think of today as just another Hallmark holiday, there is no denying the fact that Valentine’s Day helps remind us to celebrate the love in our lives. For those of us involved in the spa industry, there is certainly plenty to love. From a favorite treatment to a beloved therapist, it’s not hard to find something or someone to rave about. For me, it’s usually the little things like an esthetician washing her hands before touching my face. It’s the Talker Table at Chiva-Som (Hua Hin, Thailand). It’s curling up in a plush spa robe in front of a roaring fire in a relaxation room. It’s the enthusiastic Miraval therapist who helped me improve my training for the NYC Marathon. It’s my mom’s reaction when she opens a spa gift certificate for Christmas. It's a treatment that ends with a piece of dark chocolate. What are some of your great spa loves?
