I think people underestimate how nice it is to spend a day fully relaxed, and mostly asleep, while people slather different creams, lotions, and balms on your body. It really is worth every penny.
If you have an AVEDA institute near you, go and take advantage of it. The prices are 60% what you are going to pay at a professional salon and I was treated like a queen all day. The only thing that was missing was a locker for my stuff and wandering around in a fluffy robe and slippers.
I started the day with Elemental Nature Facial with a revitalizing eye treatment. I rounded out the day with the Carribean Therapy Body Treatment (dry room version). I fell asleep during both proceedures and I felt amazing afterwards.
Currently the Aveda in Minneapolis has a special for $99 for a facial, massage, manicure and pedicure. Very reasonable.
