Aristotle once said that humans, by nature, are social animals. So, when public health concerns dictated a need to distance ourselves from each other, it was easy to feel lonely and isolated. What better time than now to practice self-care?
Defined as anything you do deliberately to enhance your physical and emotional well-being, self-care comes in a variety of forms, from getting enough sleep to eating better and beyond. It can also include a trip to the spa. You will find a wide variety of high-quality services to meet your self-care needs at Spa Grand Traverse.
A trip to Spa Grand Traverse is a safe and simple way to affirm your sense of self and feel rejuvenated.
"Taking care of yourself is more important than ever," said Dawn Olsen, director of Spa and Recreation Operations at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. "When you feel even a little bit better, it just makes everything better."
To meet the moment in 2020, the Spa established additional safety protocols for the well-being of guests and staff.
"It's so important that someone can come in and be put at ease right away," Olsen explained. "The Spa can be a place where you can relax and destress, and that's the importance of any of our beauty services—to provide that self-care and a sense of well-being. It really can be immediately beneficial and make you feel better about the world and yourself."
Olsen said guests were delighted to finally get back to the Spa last year and that facials—which are designed to repair, restore and refresh—have been especially popular.
"It's a simple way to ease back into spa services, and our skin can certainly use them," she adds. "Taking care of your skin is huge from a self-care aspect."
A pedicure is another way to put a spring in your step! An express manicure-pedicure combo includes a quick nail cleanup and a fresh coat of polish to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
"You can even do a lot with a mini pedicure," Olsen said. "You spend a half-hour and leave feeling 10 times better than when you came in."
Other Spa services include massage, hair artistry, waxing, HydraFacial skin treatment, and NovaLash eyelash extensions.
