The Seattle spa scene is seriously sensational, and you (yes, you) deserve to take part. In spas and salons across the region, remember how it feels to pause and take deep breaths, to allow someone else to cater to your needs, and to temporarily rediscover your Zen in a steamy sauna or a warming bath.
Serene spaces across town provide sanctuaries in which patrons have their hair, nails, skin and bodies attended to. Thanks to an array of newer facilities, unique treatments now prove viable options, too' think zones of "intuitive bodywork," infinity pools and futuristic float tank chambers. In the Pacific Northwest, where people are highly attuned to their bodies and their personal needs, most any treatment goes.
While several luxe spas can be found downtown in the heart of the city (often attached to or nearby popular, high-end hotels), other venues find unexpected homes in neighborhoods like Fremont. Other spas require a brief (or long) road trip, but believe us when we say they are worth the journey. Travel to the wine-central zone of Woodinville, or go farther afoot to Cave B Inn, where views of the Gorge are worth the travel alone. Toss your worries to the wayside; it's time to get pampered.
