From a worldwide pandemic, to social unrest and a contentious election season, stress seems to be the running theme of the new decade. While self-care might not be the cure all, a day at the spa can do a world of wonders for the mind and body.
At California’s premiere wellness center, The Spa at Pebble Beach—one of only 42 spas in the U.S. to receive the coveted Forbes Five-Star rating—guests can relax and unwind with a variety of services that feature soothing properties to help ease the challenges of this year. And, its “Rest Assured Initiative” synergized the recommendations of healthcare professionals, the CDC, industry associations, and the California Department of Health, to ensure all guests a safe wellness experience.
- The Royal Treatment. Providing head to toe relaxation, this massage treatment utilizes the healing powers of honey and ginger, both of which aid in anxiety relief. Following a back massage with pure honey, a beeswax sheet is applied to enhance the healing process. A royal jelly face mask and ginger foot scrub and rub complete this relaxing experience.

- Herbal Compress Massage. This restorative massage incorporates steamed herbal compresses of wild-crafted arnica, eucalyptus and rosemary for a stress-relieving massage.

- Flotation Wrap. Guests yearning for a good night’s sleep will find solace in this unique flotation wrap service that nestles spa-goers in a dry flotation bed for a restorative wrap as they float freely in heated bliss. The 45-minute wrap is offered in two options: a Cloud Nineteen Wrap that employs ultra-hydrating Shea butter and jojoba oil infused with the guest’s choice of aromatherapy to quench and soothe skin; and the Espresso Limon Slimming Wrap that pairs a relaxing foot massage with a detoxifying wrap in a blend of South American coffee oil, Italian lemons and Madagascan cinnamon. A good night’s sleep is essential to wellbeing and this wrap aids in breaking down the barriers to sleep—stress and an overactive mind—to aid in a restful slumber.
