A few hours at a Carmel day spa can be a wonderfully relaxing experience that eases your mind and relaxes your body. You have probably heard it from those that are frequent visitors to their local spa, and how they describe the relaxation they feel after a few hours of pampered attention.
When you consider the physical and psychological value of setting aside some time from whatever schedule you had planned, to pamper yourself a little, you might wonder why you waited.
Whether it's a short time at the spa or a full day, it's likely you will emerge from this experience more calm, relaxed and inspired.
Fortunately, there are many choices in Carmel and Carmel Valley to help you accomplish what many would say is a very necessary escape.
The Refuge Spa is a new addition to the approach of total body relaxation. Located in Carmel Valley, this surprisingly affordable day spa experience will very likely cause you to rethink how you approach that total body relaxation that has become a staple in our busy lives. It's probably unlike anything else you have experienced.
