Visiting a spa before a boudoir session is a great way to relax, rejuvenate, and prepare for the shoot. A spa day can help to relieve stress and anxiety, allowing you to feel more confident and comfortable during your session. Pampering yourself with a massage, facial, or other beauty treatments can also enhance your physical appearance, leaving you feeling refreshed and glowing. Philadelphia has so many great spas that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and make you feel more like yourself. Here are three of my favorite spas in Philadelphia.
This 57th-floor spa welcomes you with calm and relaxation the moment the elevator doors open. The Four Seasons Spa remains the best in the area and Philadelphia’s first-and-only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Spa. They take this rating seriously and do not disappoint with every treatment they offer. Some of their favorites include the stress relief, balance, or energy healing oils and crystals of their Crystal Oil Massage and the incredible romantic Night Spa treatment for you and your loved one to enjoy and connect together. This stunning spa leaves you feeling rested and reinvigorated to tackle the day with every visit.
Rescue Spa is a luxury spa that offers an innovative approach to skincare. Danuta Mieloch, esthetician and owner, has over 30 years of experience and uses it to leave your skin feeling restored. The spa combines natural, organic ingredients with state-of-the-art technology to give your skin the attention it needs. When you come to the spa, you’ll receive a personalized approach to ensure the treatment you receive is right for you. The spa offers facials, massages, hair removal, brow and lash treatments, and more. The spa also features an extensive shop that will give you the necessary products to refresh your skin.
The Rittenhouse Spa & Club is a peaceful escape in Philadelphia. Treat yourself to a day of relaxation and pampering with luxurious spa treatments, salon services, and a state-of-the-art fitness center and pool. You can book a relaxing massage or get your skin glowing with one of their specialized facials, like the HydraFacial, which offers instant results with no recovery time. Let go of the stressors of the day at this incredible Philadelphia spa – and don’t forget to enjoy some light bites or a glass of champagne from the hotel’s dining team to truly unwind in this oasis in the center of town.
Victoria Roggio bases all her inspiration on nature and inner beauty. She believes that “inner beauty is the foundation for the face we present to the world.” This comes out through simple, naturally beautiful treatments that suit every person. Every product this spa uses includes ingredients that are natural, organic, and clinically tested. In addition, these products suit every skin type and tone and any age. Above all, they do not use anything on your skin that has not been used on their own so you know you can trust their treatments. Stop in for a visit and receive a free consultation about every spa treatment you can think of to help you feel your best. Victoria and her team do everything from customizable facials to massages, laser treatments, sculpting, eyebrows, and so much more. This incredible spa wants every Philadelphia woman to love the skin they’re in.
Body Restoration Spa opened in 2002 as a wellness center focused on renewing clients. Since then, the spa has expanded. The center features five treatment rooms where you can receive various services. The massage menu is extensive and offers everything from deep tissue to cupping. The specialists also teach a crash course in massage for couples, which is extra nice if you’re stressed while planning your big day. On top of its world-class massages, the spa offers facials, hair removal, and Gua Sha, a holistic approach to pain management. By the end of your experience, you’ll understand how the center got its name!
Eviama Life Spa has spent over two decades as Philadelphia’s center for holistic health. The spa combines energy work with crystals, sounds, ancient traditions, plant allies, and more to leave your skin feeling its absolute best. The massage and bodywork options range from hot stone therapy to lymph drainage. Their skincare focuses on rebuilding skin strength using natural bodily responses. And for those who feel they need to be re-centered, the spa has spiritual renewal packages that include guided meditation, Reiki, and crystal chakra harmonizing. You’ll fall in love with your body as you listen to it and give it what it needs most.
Visiting a spa can be a great opportunity to take some time for yourself, allowing you to focus on self-care and mental wellness. By taking care of yourself, both physically and mentally, you’ll be able to bring more positivity and confidence to your boudoir session, resulting in stunning, natural-looking photos. Treat yourself to a spa day before your boudoir session and allow yourself to feel your best with any of these spas in Philadelphia.
