It’s no secret that this year’s presidential election is causing a lot of uproar, and to that end, stressing out the American public. According to the American Psychology Association (APA), more than half of Americans find the incumbent election to be a significant source of stress in their day to day lives. This the perfect opportunity for your spa to step in and save the day with stress-relieving packages. Here are a few ways spa-goers can escape from all the election coverage and political banter.
- 10 Kimpton hotels in Washington D.C. are offering a “Race to the White House” getaway (price varies by location). This package includes two cocktails at the hotel bar, a running map of Washington, D.C., an in-room yoga mat for relaxation and rejuvenation, and a signature 50-minute in-room massage to melt away election stress.
- Georgetown Spa at Four Seasons Washington D.C. is offering two seasonal treatments to restore and revitalize its clientele during election season. “The Political Detox” (starting at $175, 50 minutes, Monday-Thursday, and up to $185, Friday-Sunday) uses lemon verbena and gentle buffing grains blended with stimulating extracts of ruby grapefruit and blood orange to refresh the body. The gentle exfoliation moisturizes and renews the skin for a rejuvenated re-start. Pair this with the add-on enhancement of the “Election Escape” treatment ($30, or complimentary with any purchase of facial or body treatment lasting 50-minutes or longer) for a relaxing out-of-body experience. The enhancement includes a scalp treatment, hand and feet revitalizer, and aromatherapy.
- Salamander Resort & Spa (Middleburg, VA), is offering a two-night “Commander in Sleep” deal (starting at $365 per person per night). This package provides a sanctuary of relaxation in the Dressage Suite (two night minimum) with Nonpartisan Nightcaps for two at Gold Cup Wine Bar, a 50-minute Wellness Massage for two in the Salamander Spa, and complimentary non-delivery of the morning newspapers.
- Larchmont Sanctuary Spa (Los Angeles), is offering its own getaway with the Election Escape Package ($280, 2 hours 5 minutes) beginning with a bubble-filled soak in the private copper Jacuzzi tub surrounded by candles. After unwinding in the tub, guests will move to the treatment room and enjoy a 75-minute Head Over Heels massage. Using customized techniques, the treatment includes a warm oil scalp massage and foot reflexology to fully release the body into a calm state. The day concludes with a 30-minute Lemon Verbena Sugar exfoliating scrub, made with organic sugar crystals, jojoba oil, and essential oils of geranium, rosemary, cypress, and mint.
