Eight Festive Miami Spa Specials to Ease Holiday Stress

The holiday season is the perfect time to treat yourself and let your cares fade away before the beginning of a new year. A great way to embrace well-being is a spa break, and local spots have transformed into bona fide holiday destinations by offering festive specials with holiday twists — such as chocolate, peppermint, pumpkin, and other seasonal ingredients added to treatments — to help you relax, rejuvenate, and unwind as you look forward to 2019.

Signature massages, body treatments, facials, pedicures — there's something for everyone in the following list of holiday spa treatments. Prices do not include tax or tip, so be sure to ask about those when booking.
