1. Summer Traveler's Relief

Rose at The Joseph, Nashville, TN

This summer treatment improves circulation and reduces inflammation from long periods of sitting during road trips. The anti-inflammatory service features CBD, menthol, camphor, aloe and a beet-cayenne extract. The treatment starts with a soothing foot soak following by a gentle exfoliation of the feet and lower legs, while receiving a tension-relieving hand massage. The legs are then treated with a CBD cream and masked with a stimulating Moor mud. The service is finished with a deep, soothing foot and leg massage that increases circulation and relieves soreness. 

2. Lavender Lemon Massage

Leaf Spa at Hotel AKA Brickell, Miami, FL

When driving long distances, our client's cortisol can rise to higher than normal levels. The Lavender Lemon Massage provides refuge and rest for road trippers. The reinvigorating treatment detoxifies the body and helps to heal the mind, body and soul. 

3. Magic Mend Arnica Oil

The Spa at the Inns of Aurora, Aurora, NY

The Magic Mend Arnica Oil treatment relaxes the mind and improves circulation. An add-on to the spa's extensive menu of Ayurveda-inspired massage and body treatments, the arnica application — using locally-made Magic Mend from Heartstone Herbal — is soothing and designed to relieve pain or inflammation that needs extra attention. The anti-inflammatory effects of the Magic Mend oil treats sore muscles that one might get from sitting too long.
