5-Star Spas Debut in Canad...

When it’s time for some “me time,” a spa visit can be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Or a best friend.   It could be a blissful hour under the hands of a superb massage therapist, a refreshing weekend getaway with your best bud or a week-long retreat to jump-start a healthy lifestyle. What’s called for is a place where you can relax and experience a sense of well-being and where the...

Lia Schorr: Sometimes a Ba...

I’m addicted to daily specials on Groupon, Living Social, Spa Sally and others. So I bought a great mani-pedi deal on Spa Sally: two of each for just $22 at the Lia Schorr day spa in midtown Manhattan.

The benefits: the oil is said t0 improve blood flow...

Learning to focus the mind can be a powerful antidote to the stresses and strains of our on-the-go lives. The ability to pay attention to what you’re experiencing from moment to moment — without drifting into thoughts of the past or concerns about the future, or getting caught up in opinions about what is going on — is called mindfulness.

Cross a suspension bridge with a view of the private beach in the distance. Sunlight filters down between the trees, home to howler monkeys. You walk up a primitive dirt stairway, red and purple land crabs scuttling out of the way. There, in the middle of the forest, you find a sign that says “Massage Area” pointing to a thatched hut. Welcome to the spa service division of off-the-beaten-path Morgan’s...
