The Tao of Detox

Bostonians, it’s been a rough few months, but if you can’t escape out of the city, you can at least get into a different mental space at The Langham. Its Chuan Body + Soul spa draws from traditional Chinese medicine for many treatments. To help get blood flow back from numb to normal, the full-body exfoliation followed by a warm marine algae wrap and back massage, comes fully recommended.

Winter Warm-Up and Detox Tea

You wouldn’t necessarily expect the grand, bustling Waldorf Astoria New York to be worrying about guests’ chills and headaches like an overprotective auntie, but nicely, the place seems to care. Glamorous Guerlain Spa is offering a Winter Warm-Up massage, while the Towers luxury wing offers detox tea with homegrown honey to guests. Oh, and the personal concierges are ready to make pharmacy runs as well.

Pure Ener-g, Wailea-style

If you’ve made it to Maui, you’re already doing better than 95 percent of people, weather-wise, but if you haven’t, Hawaii’s been hit with pretty severe rainstorms this winter, so you might be cheated out of a few beach days. Go the extra mile to the Fairmont Kea Lani’s brand-new Willow Stream Spa for a signature head-to-toe rub-n-scrub incorporating restorative, revitalizing essential oils

Red Flower Hammam

A creative departure from the traditional hammam, available at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, this treatment features everyone’s #1 fantasy furniture item of the week: a heated floating bed. After full-body mud slatherings and citrus misting, the final act is a warm cardamom amber oil and tangerine fig butter crème massage.

The Warming Room

Below-freezing temperatures come to Santa Fe, New Mexico as early as October, and while the region doesn’t see a lot of extreme storms, nights and mornings are chilly all the way through March. Visitors don’t always realize this, and it leads to many a tooth-chattering sunrise hike. To deal with the many shivering early morning visitors coming into the spa at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, there’s a Warming Room welcome area where guests can cozy up with cushy chairs, a crackling fire and hot drinks before heading off to the treatment.

Warm Lava Detox Wrap

The name may make you think of volcanoes, but this body treatment at Red Mountain Resort’s Sagestone Spa & Salon actually features self-heating brown seaweeds. This is a multi-step treatment that also moisturizes skin that’s been exposed to the arid Southwest climate.
