A visit to the spa is nothing less than a life enhancer. If you're stopping by after work, it's a way to decompress. If you're going while on vacation, it's almost "enjoyment insurance," a surefire way of getting your mind and body to a place where you'll be able to squeeze every last ounce of joy out of your time off. Whether you're fond of fancy facials or mad about mani-pedis, the Orlando area is rife with options that suit every taste and every budget. Some, like the Mokara Spa, located within the golf-centric Omni Resort Orlando at ChampionsGate, are ideal for sports-related treatments. Others, like Thornton Park's Spa Orlando or Winter Park's Pia Esthetics, are not only local favorites, but well-located for exploration of some of Orlando's funkiest neighborhoods. Whether you're looking for expert hair and makeup services for a once-in-a-lifetime event, a deep-tissue massage to render stiff muscles into wet noodles, or an expert manicure so beautiful it will reawaken your long-lost dreams of international hand modeling, Orlando - undoubtedly - has a spa to suit.
