For the second year in a row, Spa & Wellness Month in The Palm Beaches Returns throughout October 2017, and this year it’s for a good cause. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all participating businesses will donate a portion of their proceeds to the Palm Beach County chapter of the American Cancer Society. More than 30 offers are available, including spa treatments starting at as little as $45, wellness experiences starting from $15 and healthy eats starting at $11.
“It’s a privilege to support the important work of the American Cancer Society while highlighting the exquisite spa and wellness experiences available in The Palm Beaches,” said Jorge Pesquera, president, and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches. “We are enormously grateful to both our local partners and visitors for making this thoughtful partnership work.”
This is definitely something to take advantage of. Keep in mind that many of the resort spas in the area might charge a little more, but you have to consider that you are getting way more than just a spa service at resort spa but rather a full day-cation experience if you plan accordingly. Many of the resort spas have pools, jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas, relaxing lounges with tea and goodies to nibble on and more! So if you are looking to have a little “me time” definitely consider doing it for a good cause during October and in turn support the American Cancer Society.
Here is just a sampling of some of my personal favorite offers that are under $99:
Spa at PGA National
Cost: $89 per treatment including a mini-split of Includes a mini bottle of Rose Prosecco.
Tickled Pink Menu
- Roses Facial (50 minutes): Breathe in the sweet scent of rose and experience the softness of natural marine and plant extracts for a sensory, soothing facial experience by Phytomer. After a rose-mineral mist, the complexion is polished with an AHA scrub for a petal-soft texture, then anointed with Rosee Soin rose oil to detoxify and strengthen skin.
- Blushing Pink Rose Massage (50 minutes): Allow us to infuse your skin with a serum infused with roses and mixed with a nourishing oil featuring organic sunflower seed oil.
- Pretty in Pink Manicure|Pedicure (75 minutes): Immerse in a refreshing bubbling soak that both relaxes and invigorates. A sugar scrub made with Square One organic vodka and raspberry extract thoroughly banishes dry skin and hydrates deeply with natural oils. A light drizzle of softly scented melted shea butter, cocoa and mango butter makes for a lavish finale.
