Whether you’re a hosting a large gathering for the holidays or you are visiting your family, it’s important to remember to take care of yourself. If you are looking to de-stress this holiday season, you’ll find several spas worth visiting in the Cumberland Valley.

Treat yourself to any or all of the services offered by SPAtactular Escapes in Mechanicsburg. This beautiful 10,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility provide a multitude of services – including hair and scalp treatments, cuts and color, massages, facials, waxings, manis and pedis, body wraps and scrubs, a sauna and steam room. Before your spa treatment, you will feel pampered while sitting in the waiting area wearing a comfortable robe, surrounded with fluffy blankets and warmed by a fireplace. Settle in, enjoy your treatment, and finish off by relaxing with a glass of wine. Be sure to check out their packages or make it an overnight escape with a stay at a nearby B&B such as 30 Timber Road.

Dissolve Float Spa in Camp Hill offers a unique experience designed to promote inner peace. Each private float room contains a shower and float pod filled with 10" of water heated to the skin's external temperature and 900 pounds of epsom salt, allowing you to float effortlessly. You can keep the lid open or close it fully, listen to music or choose to keep it quiet, have the lights on or off, stay awake or fall asleep. As you unplug during the 60-minute session, you may find all your cares washed away. Dissolve Float Spa also offers massage therapy to complement your flotation therapy.

If you like the idea of salt, but don’t want to float, try the Himalayan salt cave at Tranquility Salon & Wellness Center in Carlisle. The cave is made up of 10 tons of Himalayan salt which creates an environment that achieves bacteriological cleanliness helping with headaches, lethargy, indigestion problems and irritability.
