With a new year comes a new you. Bring in 2012 with a little beauty and relaxation, and you’ll feel refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to rock all of your resolutions. There are dozens of quality day spas and salons in Greater Raleigh that offer the kind of services that will relax you right into the New Year.

The ultimate experience at any spa is obtained through spa packages. Find luxurious, head-to-toe packages at B Roman Skin and Body Therapy, Bloom Skin Spa and the Umstead Spa. Combine one-hour massages with facials, manicures and pedicures, steam room time and much more at these locations.

If you’re looking for a little something extra during your rejuvenating spa experience, head to a medical spa such as Blue Water Spa or Synergy Spa, where you can receive laser services, microdermabrasion and other clinical enhancements, in addition to regular spa services.

For a quick, yet long-lasting refresher, get a new look at a local salon. At Primp Salonbar you can enjoy a cocktail while getting your new ‘do, or sip on a beer before your wax. If a nice, relaxing massage is what you’re interested in, then take your pick.

After the end of a long year, there’s never a better time to pamper yourself. For a list of the many spas, salons and massage therapy locations in Greater Raleigh, click here.
