What is the best way to start a weekend???? Spa Day! Friday afternoon I finished grading papers, planned out my teaching schedule for next week (all normal Friday afternoon activities) and then I headed to my favorite spa Burke Williams to test out two of their services.
The minute I opened this door, all thoughts of math tests and reading comprehension melted away…..
Burke Williams has amazing facilities….from the perfect whirlpool, to the eucalyptus scented towels and tasty lemon water….even waiting for your services is relaxing! I’ve been to many of their locations….but to be honest, I’ve always ordered the same services. I jumped at the chance to try something different!
I’ve had Swedish Massages a million times, but this time…..we added a hot stone enhancement. It was phenomenal! My masseuse used the hot stones as an extension of her hands…..kneading out the knots and rubbing my sore muscles. I have never felt so relaxed after a massage, my arms were sore from lifting weights….and by the end all tension was GONE!
After my massage I was whisked away for my very first Anti-Aging Facial. It had been a long week, and I was definitely looking tired. My skin was dull, dry and somehow I felt like I’d aged 5 years since Monday.
The Anti-Aging Facial worked miracles…..today my skin is GLOWING! I’ve done tons of regular spa facials….but nothing like this. My skin was treated with three separate peels, serums, and sprays. The final illuminating spray brightened my skin like nothing I’ve ever seen, and I was given a personalized blended moisturizer to apply later that evening.
Days later, my skin is glowing….and my muscles are relaxed…..now if I could just start every weekend like this???? Life would be perfect.
If you live in California…..I highly recommend that you try one or both of these! The best part? Burke Williams is running a special for the month of October on both! The 50 minute Swedish Massage with Hot Stone Enhancement (normally $145) is only $99 and the Anti-Aging Facial (normally $195) is only $179! Run, run, run to the spa…..and if you’re going to one of the LA locations….let me know so that I can join you!
