Mother’s Day is this weekend. Accommodations in Kelowna are booked with in-town visitors who have come to see their moms and dads (who wisely made other arrangements for the kids) so they can take deserving local moms for a night away from home.
If you are running late and haven’t picked up your gift to celebrate the moms in your life, a gift certificate to a Kelowna Spa might be just the trick. The Best Western PLUS Kelowna Hotel and Suites makes it even easier by having an in-hotel spa right there for your relaxation and pampering.
Men can sometimes feel out of their league when it comes to purchasing spa treatments for their wives or girlfriends. Here is a basic cheat sheet of common spa treatments. Armed with this, you can feel confident to come into our Kelowna hotel-based spa and know what you’re really getting for the woman you love!
Facials are deep treatments to rehydrate, rejuvenate, and cleanse the skin on and around the face. Each spa uses different types of products to accomplish these goals -- and often combine elements of deep massage for the face area. Most facials seek to remove the outer most layers of dead skin to leave behind new cells and relaxed muscles.
Manicures (hand treatments) and Pedicures (foot treatments)
These are great to remove dry skin and give expert nail and cuticle care. They involve massage to relax the muscles of the hands and feet. You can usually get these with or without nail painting.
Reflexology is an approach to wellness that involves using deep pressure in very specific ways, primarily on the feet, in order to produce restoration and pain relief in other parts of the body.
The body is enveloped in oils, salts, herbs, or lotions and wrapped with sheets for a deliciously soothing detoxification.
These are but a few of the treatments you’ll find at The Wellness Spa at our Kelowna accommodations. We are pleased to offer special Spa Packages to our Kelowna hotel guests, not just at Mother’s Day, but year-round! We hope to see you soon!
