February 14th is the official day for Lovers everywhere to celebrate their love. I believe that every day should be the celebration of love, but that is because I am a romantic; and too many years of reading Harlequin books. For the “Givers” forget about the flowers, the chocolates, and the cards, your loved one wants to feel cherished and touched in a relaxing manner; so I will give you a list of some of the best places to go to get all of that from a professional in some of the best spas in Charleston.
Charleston is a very romantic city, you don’t have to go to Paris to have romantic ambiance its right here. In Downtown Charleston, there’s the beautiful Wentworth Mansion. You can make it a Valentine weekend by staying there having a complimentary breakfast, a lovely dinner and in between relax and rejuvenate in their luxury spa. You can experience the Wentworth Mansion, by booking the Valentine Package that includes: an hour long couple’s massage- the massage therapists will customize the service especially for you, so you can choose from gentle to firm pressure. The package also includes full a la carte breakfast, an evening of wine and hors d’oeurve, romantic candlelight turn down service and a bottle of champagne at turn down. It warms my heart just thinking about it so can you imagine how your loved would feel? Many, many brownie points- GUARANTEED!!!!
The beautiful Earthling Day Spa is offering a 3 ½ hour treatment called appropriately “Heavenly Bliss”. The Blissful experience is a head to toe treatment that includes an Ayurvedic scalp massage(see video), a sugar glow (which is a sugar exfoliation body treatment), a 1 hour massage and an essential facial, and in between you get to enjoy a fruit and tea break- Heavenly!!!!
If your Valentine is yourself, and I definitely think it is okay to love yourself and you should; but you don’t have to skimp on a beautiful location, you just have to look for a great bargain for your special treat. The gorgeous spa inside of the historic Francis Marion Hotel- Spa Adagio is the place to go. You can get a great hour long massage or facial at a $10 off discount or you can get a 30 minute facial for $40.00 with their head skin therapist.
SoCa Day Spa has a great special that is wonderful for the hardworking man or woman; it’s called the “Melt your heart facial”. It is designed to melt your stress away, and those troubling signs of aging by giving you a highly invigorating, detoxifying facial that will be sure to brighten your skin because of our harsh winter and giving you a wonderful Valentine gift, it’s better than a box of chocolate and it is 75 minutes! This treatment is definitely worth being a little late back to work.
Valentine’s Day is for loving; be kind to each other, give each other a hug and a kiss - and maybe just maybe the world will take on these loving behaviors for more than a day. If everyone did these treatments you would be too relaxed to argue or fight. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
