With weekend pool parties to attend, kids on vacation, and the compulsive need every Miamian feels to maintain a toned beach physique, summer can be a super stressful time. So we welcome the annual arrival of Miami Spa Month, when even tightly budgeted 305’ers can take advantage of sweet deals on massages, facials, and body wraps at the swankiest spas in town. The best of the best in beautifying venues are offering all sorts of services for $99 a pop. You can score a hot and cold stone massage at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach; spend the day showering, plunging, and exfoliating with the Standard Spa’s Soaked & Worshipped deal; or indulge in an essential oil-rich Summer Sensorial Escape from the Spa at Mandarin Oriental. And each costs less than a night out at LIV. Name your pampering pleasure; there’s a spa that’s got it. So this month, live like the other. With these prices, you can afford to get oiled up, scrubbed down, and rubbed into glorious serenity. Miami Spa Month runs this Monday, July 1, through August 31, and deals are offered at numerous spas around the city. Visit miamispamonth.com.
