Treat Yourself to Spa-Time in the Napa Valley

From wraps to massages, find a pampering treatment you can’t resist.

With its elegant wineries and vine-covered hillsides, the Napa Valley puts you in a relaxed and luxurious mood. Why not go with the flow and give yourself a little extra pampering? The charming town of St. Helena, in the heart of the valley, is home to exclusive and sumptuous spas, where you can get everything from body wraps and massages to a five-star mani-pedi.

One location that consistently gets accolades from locals and visitors alike is Health Spa Napa Valley . This full-service spa seems to have made sure that absolutely everything is available—a fleet of massage and facial rooms, a Pilates studio, an outdoor whirlpool, a spa garden, and—if you’re feeling lively—a 25-yard lap pool and enough exercise equipment to make even Arnold’s eyes shine. (A full schedule of fitness classes is offered.) Signature body treatments include the 110-minute “Center Yourself” mud wrap, a totally indulgent experience that leaves your skin baby-soft, your muscles relaxed, and your mind calm. With the help of Frankincense, ginger scrub, and Amazonian clay, you’ll find your own spot of heaven in the Napa Valley.

If that’s not enough to tempt you, also consider visiting the rapturously beautiful Meadowood Resort , where spa treatments include the usual irresistible mix of rubs, wraps, and massages, and a treatment simply called “Bliss,” beginning with a relaxing massage for the hands and feet, then a neck, head, and face massage, with all-natural products that get your skin glowing.
