Great Escape: A Day of Relaxation

Local spas to primp and pamper you for spring

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:

Gentle Healing Wellness Spa

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.

Onsen For All

4451 Route 27 at Raymond Road, Kingston (South Brunswick)

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. The spa also offers massages and body enhancements, like the nectar body treatment, in which the skin is soothed and enhanced with honey and organic sugar crystals for $110. There is also a boutique that sells certified all natural and organic products.

Metropolis Spa & Salon

The Metropolis Spa & Salon, located in the heart of Princeton, has a variety of services, from haircuts and styling from Vidal Sassoon-academy trained stylists, massages, body treatments, facials, waxing and manicures and pedicures.
