You’ve spent a few exhilarating days shredding up the slopes or surfing down the whitewater rapids of the Deschutes River. You’ve taught your son to ski or spent an afternoon shopping with girlfriends at the Old Mill District. Best of all, you’ve planned a great vacation in Bend, Oregon that includes an itinerary of activities and adventures to make the whole family happy.
But now its time for you. Leave all of that behind for a day, or even for a few hours, and enter a place where stress falls away as you give in to the relaxing indulgence of the spa.
Bend is known to have some of the finest massage therapists in the country, working to alleviate the aches and pains of Central Oregon’s many professional athletes. Let a professional therapist at one of Bend’s world-class spas give you a deep tissue massage which lengthens muscles and provides lasting relief to specific pain areas. Or why not try a hot stone massage, where heated basalt stones are used to increase blood flow and accelerate the healing process. Add a few drops of lavender or chamomile essential oils to reduce anxiety. If you need a pick me up, try basil, cinnamon, or rose.
How about bringing your sweetheart along for a massage at Jinsei Spa in the romantic couples suite featuring a fireplace, steam room, a large soaking tub, and a rain room? At the end of your visit, try a cup of handpicked organic tea in the relaxation lounge.
If you prefer to live and spa green, Anjou Spa & Salon is Bend, Oregon’s only green spa featuring organic oils, scrubs, and even nail polish. Steam away your stress before a pampering pedicure in one of their zero-gravity chairs knowing there’s no formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate going on your nails.
Bend, Oregon has a dozen outstanding day spas that offer everything from Swedish massages to facials to cleansing herbal mud treatments that will unify the mind, body, and spirit. So, while you’re making plans for your next vacation to Central Oregon, remember to schedule in some time for your own bliss and relaxation.
