For many of us, the end of the year is both a time of celebration and of stress as our to-do lists kick in to high gear. Christmas is almost upon us, the kids are at home, and the extended family is in town for the holidays – now is a great time to slip away for a little relaxation time, even if it’s just for an hour or two.
At My Family Dentistry, we work hard to make our office feel like a calming, rejuvenating spa, but when you need a foot massage and an exfoliating treatment, you’ll have to head to a real spa.
So, consider this your doctor’s note: take a break from all that seasonal stress and treat yourself to a little R&R at one of Knoxville’s best spa salons to recharge before diving back into your holiday preparations. Best of all, we’ve singled out a luxurious, relaxing treatment at each one of these spas for under $100!
Through their 4 Knoxville locations, Natural Alternatives provides a range services to help you feel relaxed and refreshed, and they do it all with an eco-conscious flair using Aveda natural products. Their Rosemary Mint Awakening Body Wrap, which features essences of peppermint and rosemary, is perfect for this candy-cane-filled season. For $90, you’ll be pampered from head to toe, with a foot massage, scalp massage and exfoliation, followed by a wrap. Natural Alternatives also offers facials, nail care, waxing and different types of massages at each of their four locations in Knoxville.
Oasis Day Spa
Oasis Day Spa was voted Best Day Spa in 2009, and for good reason. This spa salon uses top-quality products and a team of skilled professionals to ensure a fun and relaxing experience. The salon’s Sea Mud Treatment is ideal this time of year, since it’s designed to help hydrate your skin. You’ll get to spend some time unwinding from holiday stress, and your skin will get some relief from the dryness that colder temperatures bring. This treatment, which costs $80, involves being covered in a seaweed and mud compound that will help your skin sweat out impurities and become firm and moisturized. Oasis Day Spa also has plenty of other services to choose from, including massage therapy, facials and manicures, at their Kingston Pike location. They also offer monthly specials!
European Body Works
European Body Works gives you the chance to set your holiday tasks aside and pretend that you’ve escaped to Europe, at least for a while. This salon, located on Ray Mears Boulevard, offers Swedish massages and a variety of body treatments, but nothing quite compares to the Champagne and Rose Butter Cream Body Treatment. If this treatment sounds like the epitome of relaxation and indulgence, it is. The Champagne and Rose Butter Cream helps exfoliate and hydrate, and has plenty of antioxidants and other goodies that help protect your skin and keep it in good shape this winter. You can treat yourself to this wonderfully relaxing treatment for $90.
