Happy late spring, chickadees! June is a terrific time to be a spa lover in Dallas. Three local spas are offering fun and fantastic deals that’ll have you picking up your phone to make an appointment, stat! Here’re the deets …
Runners Treats at Massage Felax
This local mini-chain of massage spas (see my write-up on AFAR.com) is treating athletes on National Running Day (June 3); anyone who runs a mile to either the Park Cities or Dyer Street location will receive a free 20-minute runner’s massage treatment. Plus, starting in June, Massage Felax (below) will reward the first-, second- and third-place winners of local running races with free hourlong treatments. Runners can take advantage of the foot and leg treatment right after their run or call to schedule it. Sounds to me like incentive to get your sneakers on and hit the road!
Summery Treatments at V Spa
The spa adjacent to the Hilton Anatole hotel (pictured at top) just launched an exclusive menu of treatments inspired by the scents and flavors of summer, like coconut, cucumber and honey. These specials start at just $55 for the Let’s Glow Honey Coconut Manicure or Pedicure, ranging up to $160 for the Coconut Grove Body Glow polish and wrap. Along with the Cucumber Coconut Grass Facial ($110), it sounds like these treatments will have you feeling like you’re on the beach.
Signature Treatment Deals at The Ritz-Carlton Spa
One of the grande dames on the spa scene (above) is offering crazy specials in June. On Mondays through Fridays, The Ritz-Carlton Spa’s Signature Massage and Signature Organic Facial are going for $99 apiece. Steal! Especially when you consider that spa visitors also gain access to ALL of the facilities of the spa, including its relaxation areas and men’s and women’s Healing Waters. (Couldn’t we all use some healing?) Free parking is also included for those booked at the spa, so make your appointment with haste by calling 214-922-4820 – these slots fill up fast!
Bonus: Have You Been to MiniLuxe Yet??
There’s a new beauty salon in town, and it. Is. Epic. I’m talking about MiniLuxe (above) — a Boston import whose top priority is phenomenal spa services in a very clean environment. I don’t know about you, but I kind of have dreaded getting a pedicure for the last year. I can’t help but side-eye the “cleanliness” practices I see, especially when I know scraping and cleaning tools haven’t been cleaned between uses or ripped out of a sterile pack. Happily, those days are over for me: MiniLuxe not only keeps their space immaculately clean but also boasts a Clean Lab, where hospital-style equipment is used to sterilize metal tools. Talk about peace of mind! It’s nice to just focus on relaxing and enjoying a pedi, rather than wondering why the callous scrubbing tool was just used on someone else without being passed under some running water (gack!).
Located in West Village, MiniLuxe offers pedis, manis, waxing and brow work. They’re also conscientious about chemicals in nail polishes and stock brands — including their own line — free of the most toxic ingredients. Give it a go, and tell them the Diva sent you!
