If you feel like you're in need of a little self-care this spring, you're not alone. Taking a break from normal life to relax and indulge can have benefits for your physical and mental health. But if the thought of reclining in a spa with a towel wrapped around your head and cucumber slices over your eyes seems a little stale, what can you do instead?
All over the country, spas are regenerating and renewing. Today, it's about going back to basics. Gone are the days of rushing through your two-hour slot and avoiding eye contact with that overly comfortable old man in the sauna. Instead, head to the great outdoors where you can soak away your stress in your own private hot tub under the stars, or swap the stuffiness of a steam room for fresh woodland air.
