After a calorie-filled holiday season, you might be ready to start the new year with a new diet and workout regimen. And why not jump-start your resolutions with a day at the spa? Here are a few treatments to get you started:
Sculpt & Tone Treatment, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Miami. This treatment will tighten your body and give you a youthful glow, thanks to its firming techniques and anti-aging products from well-known plastic surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. The treatment is designed to eliminate excess water, stimulate circulation, and sculpt and reshape your body from seasonal calorie damage. For long-lasting results, opt for a set of three or six sessions. And if you’re really serious about slimming down, the spa also offers personalized nutritional assessments.
The Firming and Toning Treatment, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dallas. Firm and tone your muscles (including your abs) without hitting the gym. The Texas spa’s ionithermie treatment increases circulation and cellular renewal, while protein-based creams help firm your skin. You can also attack toxins and pesky cellulite with the spa’s Anti-Cellulite treatment and Herbal Cellulite Body Treatment, which will increase circulation and muscle tone to help remove toxins and cellulite.
Espresso Limon Firm and Fit, The Peninsula Spa Beverly Hills. This treatment will leave your body feeling detoxified and firm. A citrus body brushing stimulates lymphatic drainage to help your body detox. Then, an Espresso Limon Slimming Body Oil, made from coffee and infused with lemon and cinnamon, is slathered on your body to help purify and tone. Afterwards, you can hit the spa’s steam room to sweat out any other toxins left over from those seasonal cocktails.
The Love Handler, Bliss Spas (multiple locations). With its many locations spanning San Francisco, Chicago and South Beach (and more than a dozen others), Bliss Spa is easily accessible for those who need a quick tummy tuck. The Love Handler treatment will zap your muffin top as it aids in decreasing bloating with essential oils. It also firms and diminishes cellulite with a seaweed mask wrap. Or if you just want to focus on destroying cellulite, try the four-step Quadruple Thighpass, which is sure to make you want to show off your legs afterwards.
The Emerald Oasis Body Treatment, The Spa at Trump Chicago.This treatment not only detoxifies your body, but also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite by using a mixture of mineral salts, mint and precious emerald-infused oils that are massaged into your skin to increase circulation, cleanse and exfoliate. A gold clay body masks helps to purify your body along with a scalp massage that relieves tension. You won’t be exercising, but you’ll look and feel like you did.
