Embracing Wellness in Norfolk, Virginia
By now, we all can understand and appreciate the benefits of a self-care routine. Feeling our best—and sometimes even looking our best—can rejuvenate and re-energize, boost confidence and provide the motivation needed to work hard, play hard and vacation hard. There’s no need to sacrifice your self-care routine while traveling. Consider booking a massage on the first day of your visit to initiate full relaxation mode. Keep up with your mani/pedi routine at one of Norfolk’s spas. Or, delve into a new experience like meditation or floating. Here are some recommended Norfolk spas to boost relaxation and contribute to your overall wellness.
Changes Day Spa
Get pampered from head to toe with the award-winning team and establishment of Changes in Ghent. Opt for hair care services like blowouts, relaxers and straightening from a team of technicians at various levels. Try a 60-minute, 90-minute or hot stone massage. Illuminate your look with a lash lift or brow lamination. You can also book a full spa package like the Changes City Escape, which includes a massage, facial, pedicure, manicure, shampoo and blowout and facial wax; lunch is even included!
Elite European Day Spa
Founder Kima Nazaryan moved to the U.S. from Europe with her sights set on living the American dream through owning her own day spa. This premier, luxurious destination offers treatment for hair, nails, skin and body, plus makeup and waxing services too. Their hydrafacials focus on detoxification, cleansing, extracting and hydrating to leave skin looking and feeling its best. Open seven days a week, there’s always an opportunity to be transported to a European experience right in the heart of Ghent.
Conveniently located in East Beach, Enrich Spa prides itself on being a European-style paradise. In addition to the services you may expect—massages, facials, haircare, nail services and waxing—Enrich offers aromatic contouring body treatments to achieve healthy, attractive and toned appearances. Their facials are uniquely tailored to restore skin’s radiance, redefine face contour or erase visible signs of aging. Their spa packages are just as luxurious. Consider the Spa Date, which includes a couple’s anti-stress body massage, foot peeling, paraffin treatment, skin renewal exfoliation and aromatic shower.
When was the last time you simply allowed yourself to float on water and feel all your cares quietly drift away? Float Norfolk provides just that experience you didn’t know you were missing. Floating is a proven aid for mental health, physical wellbeing and stress reduction. Immerse yourself in a float pod filled with water containing 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts to help achieve weightlessness. Benefits can include muscle relaxation, meditation, improved sleep, increased immune health, reduced anxiety and elevated mood.
