Winter escape not in the cards? No worries, we've brought signature skin care spa treatments from the country's most indulgent havens straight to you
Kiawah Island Sanctuary Spa, Kiawah Island, SC
Southern hospitality abounds at this charming spa where several treatments are inspired by the island's coastline and lush greenery.
The Treatment: The Signature Massage, 60/90 min. $175/245
A unique massage experience using heated grain and herb-filled wraps that are placed on key tension areas and major muscle groups to induce deep relaxation and increase the therapeutic benefits of the therapist's massage strokes. Results include relief of muscle tension, increased circulation and a relaxed, nurtured feeling.
The DIY version: The spa director jokes that although guests can't "pack the massage therapists as part of this at-home treatment, they can easily fit any of our Relax & Dream DreamTime Warm Embrace Body Wraps, $38 (call 843-768-6340), into their luggage." She recommends heating the wrap (in the microwave) and applying it to "key tension areas and major muscle groups to induce deep relaxation."
