The sweet treat has become common as a spa treatment option as well. The Spa at The Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania, is well known for its unique chocolate body services. Begin with a cool Chocolate Bean Polish that gently exfoliates using cocoa bean husks and walnut shells, and then soften skin with a Cocoa Body Moisturizer. Next, truly relax with the Chocolate Fondue Wrap that covers the client in warmed moor mud and uses the essence of cocoa to revitalize and nourish the skin, followed by a body brushing and fondue application.
Dip into some Chocolate Indulgence with this scrub and wrap combo at The Spa Hyatt at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort in Cambridge, Maryland, where clients choose between chocolate mint-, chocolate raspberry- or chocolate cake-infused body oil. The menu at Gauthier Total Image Spa in Sherman Oaks, California, features six decadent chocolate-based services, including Dripping in Chocolate—a scrub, body wrap, manicure and pedicure combination, complete with a chocolate biscotti and a cup of hot chocolate. And at Transition Salon & Day Spa in Escondido, California, the menu highlights a chocolate delight services section that includes wraps, hydrotherapy treatments, body polishes, salt glows, pedicures and paraffin dips.

Tempting, alluring and delicious, chocolate enhances any spa menu. Dip into chocolate, and discover the possibilities.
