Spot Spa

Sometimes, especially during the dreariest months in Minnesota, you just need to pamper yourself. You can do that at Spot Spa, which has two Minneapolis locations. Here, you'll find a variety of treatments, both preventative and restorative. They include massages galore, as you can choose from Swedish, esselen, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, shiatsu, acupressure, and ayurvedic bodywork. Spa packages include head-to-toe massage, vitamin C brightening treatments, and the happiness spa package, which scores you a deep facial with Arcona products, a pedicure (all nail treatments employ non-toxic materials), and body massage. They also offer cranial massage (available for kids, too!), acupuncture, and wellness workshops covering topics like homemade juicing and herbology.
