Most Outrageous Spa and Wellness Experiences

Move over, goat yoga and sake soaks. We’ve got the new trendiest spa packages. Whether it’s a girls’ night in Sonoma County for enzyme bathing or a destination trip to Japan to experience the birthplace of forest bathing, these seven spa experiences will renew your mind, body, and spirit—in untraditional ways. 

Volcanic sand bathing in New Jersey

Start your crazy spa escapade in a decidedly tame location—Edgewater, New Jersey. The city’s SoJo Spa Club offers a volcanic sand bath that uses mineral-rich, volcano-warmed sand to detoxify your skin. Volcanic sand bathing started in Ibusuki, Japan, where underground springs warmed by nearby volcanoes result in heated, naturally alkaline sand. This mineral-rich sand boasts anti-inflammatory properties, making it great for skin, and being covered in it raises body temperature, resulting in sauna-like detoxification. 

SoJo seeks to make the experience as similar to the one you’d have in Ibusuki as possible. When you arrive, you put on a traditional Japanese yukata (cotton robe) and lie down in a large, multi-person pit of sand. (The sand is shipped in from Ibusuki.) An attendant covers your body in the sand and places a parasol by your head to protect your face from the sun. The bathing occurs indoors but there are a lot of windows, so the parasol is actually really helpful. For 10 to 15 minutes, you close your eyes and enjoy the warmth and quiet of the beach-like atmosphere. Afterward, you can enjoy a soak in one of the spa’s therapeutic baths—the Edgewater version of an Ibusuki hot spring soak.

7 reasons to relax and unwind on a spa holiday

A Spa break is the perfect way to put your feet up, take a break from your busy life and do literally nothing! You can indulge in as many or as little treatments as you want and make the most of the excellent spa facilities on offer. So, what reasons are there to relax and unwind on the perfect spa holiday? Let’s take a closer look, below.

1. Detox

With our environment being full of toxins, it’s ideal to choose a spa break to have a detox to be cleansed of these toxins that are harmful to us both mentally and physically. Specialists at spas deliver detoxifications by removing these toxins and excess fluids from your body, as they can lead to bloating, constipation and energy loss.

2. Stress Management

Our busy day to day schedules can be full of stress and running from one thing to another, which is why going on the perfect spa holiday to relax and unwind is imperative occasionally. At spas across the country, you can receive a variety of different treatments which all work to relieve you from any stress you may have. From sitting in a sauna, to having a massage or even enjoying a dip in the jacuzzi, you can de-stress and rejuvenate from any stress you have.

3. Lose Weight

In addition to stress management, the perfect spa holiday can also help you to lose weight over time. This is due to you not feeling stressed or uptight, which can lead to weight gain. So, by occasionally treating yourself to a spa break, you can feel less stressed and in turn lose weight.

4. Improve Confidence And Self Esteem

Being pampered and treating yourself to a well-deserved break, will help you to have more of a glow about you. Taking time to take care of your body, as well as your mind, will help to improve self-esteem and confidence.

5. Skin Benefits

Spa break holidays offer plenty of skin benefits, as you can enjoy a variety of different facials and body treatments that are beneficial for skin problems. Therefore, as well as relaxing and unwinding, you can also benefit from anti-aging methods too.

6. Manage Pain

As well as choosing a massage technique that can help to release any back pain, there are also many treatments that are great for alleviating pain, including nerve problems and even arthritis. Managing pain is crucial in having an easier lifestyle, as you will feel freer and won’t have continuous pain.

7. Connect With Loved Ones

Although you can take spa breaks as an opportunity to spend time alone and forget about all your worries and problems, it’s also a great chance to connect with your loved ones. Whether you choose to go away with your mum, family or your partner, you can enjoy exploring the destination of the spa break, as well as making the most of the extensive spa facilities the spa and hotel will have on offer. With our lives being so busy and hectic, sometimes we don’t have enough free moments to spend quality time with those that we love. However, spa holidays are the perfect excuse to catch up with each other and for some couples, even rekindle their love.

As you can see, there are so many reasons to relax and unwind on a spa holiday. With there being so many spas and hotels across the US to choose from, get booking your getaway and treat yourself and your loved ones!

You know what’s healthy? The wellness travel industry

There’s certainly nothing wrong with a fly and flop vacation, and who can argue with an afternoon massage and maybe cocktails at sundown? Relaxing, sure, but today’s travelers are looking for more ways to stay healthy and fit on the road.

Wellness travel — what the Wellness Tourism Association ( defines as “travel that allows the traveler to maintain, enhance or kick-start a healthy lifestyle, and support or increase one’s sense of well-being”— is soaring. It’s now the fastest-growing segment of the travel industry, growing more than twice as fast as tourism overall.

“That shouldn’t be surprising,” says Anne Dimon, president of the Wellness Tourism Association. “We’ve become more proactive with the state of our own health, conscientiously making changes in our daily lives, adopting healthier practices and habits. We want the same when we travel.”
