Now that warmer weather is just around the corner, a trip to one of our area’s soothing day spas might be in order. You can order up a massage to chase the winter blues away, and then perhaps follow up with a mani/pedi or skin treatment to get ready for skin-revealing spring fashions.
These are some of Patch’s picks for Central New Jersey spas that are worth the visit:
1274 Cranbury-South River Rd., Cranbury
Located in a beautiful Victorian home, the Gentle Healing Wellness Spa provides massages, skin treatments and body care, waxing, aromatherapy and hand and foot care. The spa has several fun packages to share with a special someone or friend, such as a “Two” Be Well package that includes an aroma steam treatment, massage, facial and a gourmet lunch for two with chocolates and champagne. There are several coupons that are good through the end of this month, such as cucumber pedicure for $45, and a 15-minute sauna with two side-by-side lemon massages for $198 for two people.

Situated in a lovely restored historic home, the Onsen for All day spa offers meditation spaces, a yoga room and an outdoor Zen spa garden equipped with cedar soaking tubs and a wood-burning sauna.

There is also a boutique that sells certified all natural and organic products.
