Outer sanctuary

Head to the spa for indulgence and rejuvenation. Willow Spa in Santa Monica, a neighborhood day spa, is featuring a few can’t miss packages that soften, relax and brighten your skin from head to toe.

Designed to decrease stress in your body, and exfoliate, nourish and balance your skin at the same time, the Complete Renewal Package does the trick. This service includes a mango body polish and massage, and a facial and bright eyes treatment (2 ½ hours, $273).

With a little less time on your hands, Willow Spa’s Spring Renewal package might be more for you. It starts with a 60-minute “Zentastic” signature massage, which helps to warm and relax your muscles and is followed-up by an exfoliating body polish – choose from mango, café-coco or bourbon and barley. (1 hour and 45 minutes, $150).

A warm bath is known to heal the soul, detoxify and relieve tense muscles and increase circulation. Willow's signature Enzyme Bath is a deep heating treatment originally innovated in Japan for athletes. This dry bath takes place in a private wooden tub where you are gently covered with wood shavings, rice bran, and fruit and vegetable enzymes. You will be given a lavender compress for your face, and after your technician will brush off the shavings and you will rinse your body. Then it's time to sit back and enjoy a Thai foot massage. (75 minutes, $110).

Inner sanctuary

Give the inner workings of your body some spa time with Robeks new Spa Inspired Creations menu (offered through June 15). Robeks juice café is offering raw smoothies boosted with vitamins, nutrients, phytonutrients and enzymes using combinations of raw cucumber and raw honey.

Designed as a spa treatment for your body, Robeks spa smoothies encapsulate the experience of a high-end spa, complete with a feeling of health, refreshment and rejuvenation. While you are there try Robeks Premium Treatment, a 2-ounce shot of wheatgrass accompanied by a "chaser" slide of raw cucumber with a drop of raw honey.
