Over the weekend I genuinely enjoyed scrolling through Facebook and Instagram. In honor of Mother’s Day and moms, my friends posted beautiful expressions of their love for their moms and photos of moms looking fabulous. The heartfelt sentiments extended to strong women and mentors who have touched lives outside of their own family. It truly shows the power of moms, in all her many forms. They deserve much more than one day for all the sacrifices, hard work, and love they give all of us. Here are a few spa specials that turn Mother’s Day into Mother’s Month and beyond.
Relâche Spa at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center (MD) is offering an array of treatments to rejuvenate women at all stages of motherhood throughout the month of May. Moms can enjoy the Lavender and Honey Spa Experience Package (starting at $325), which includes a lavender and honey massage, facial, and pedicure, along with a complimentary rose on Mother’s Day. Expecting moms also get feted with the Mommy-to-be Massage (starting at $150, 50 minutes). It incorporates prenatal techniques to increase circulation, alleviate tired muscles, and reduce water retention. The spa also gets moms ready to face the world with Mom’s Royal Treatment ($185, 80 minutes), a new VIP HydraFacial MD service. The multi-step treatment provides exfoliation, peels, and extractions all while delivering antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid for a youthful appearance. The treatment also includes two exclusive enhancements: red LED Light therapy to diminish the appearance of fine lines and DermaBuilder therapy, used to recharge and hydrate the skin.
The Spa at Carillon (Miami) has a trio of curated packages to provide mom with the ultimate spa day this month. The most indulgent is the Goddess Package ($715, 6 hours), which pampers mom from head to toe and includes a Thermal Experience, Couture Massage, Clarins Couture Skin Solution Facial, Repair & Replenish Hair Treatment, Beautiful Hands Manicure, Beautiful Feet Pedicure, and a spa lunch at the resort’s new restaurant Thyme. For moms in a time crunch, the Superwoman Package ($518, 3 hours) offers a more abbreviated, but still enticing combination of a Thermal Experience, Couture Wellness Compass, Choice of Private Fitness Class, Couture Massage and choice of Detox Juice. The De-Stress Package ($400, 3 hours) is created for the nurturing woman in need of stress relief. It includes Private Yoga & Meditation, Sound Massage Therapy, Beautiful Feet Pedicure, and choice of a Power Smoothie.
