Family Friday: Kids Spa Treatments
I am a serious massage-junkie. And as a mom, there's nothing I enjoy more than a day at the spa. As it turns out, your kids want to be pampered, too. To meet this need, hotels across the globe are rolling out treatments geared towards teens and their younger siblings.
I'm not sure my 3-year-old twin boys are quite ready for a deep-tissue rub or pedicure, but yours might be. Check out these amazing packages I found, to make your kids can feel and look years younger.
Stowe Mountain Lodge, Vermont has just launched a new spa program for summer called Chillax, which includes mini-massages, chocolate masks, facials, manicures, and even aromatherapy.
At Four Seasons Resort, Koh Samui, kids can choose from over 7 all-natural treatments. My favorite: On Cloud Nine. There's a Samui coconut scrub, herbal fusion wrap with fresh banana leaves, coconut oil body massage, and a banana mini facial.
The Homestead, in western Virgina, is opening a new kids spa in June. On the menu: bubble manicures and pedicures, hair cuts, massages, and makeup lessons.
