Start (or end) the week by indulging in an overdue wellness session

Sundays are a great for taking a deep breath and finding your center before the next “Manic Monday” creeps up. Whether you want to unwind in a rainfall steam room or detoxify with an immune boosting massage, make a wellness retreat part of your weekly routine. On this day of rest, let the healing pros work their magic on tense muscles until you feel as light as a cloud. Try these pleasant respites every Sunday for the next three weeks.
