How-to: For an at-home spa-like experience she says, "light a candle, start with a salt scrub all over from feet working upwards in circular movements, paying attention to dry rough areas like knees and elbows. Shower away and then bathe. Put aromatherapy stress relief oils in your bath, soak [and] breathe from your abdomen for 20 minutes. Pat yourself dry and apply a good body moisturizer."
