It’s cold outside.  There’s no doubt about it.  But, thankfully, you can escape the chill of winter and warm yourself straight to the core with any number of warming spa treatments available at Greater Raleigh spas.

B Roman Skin and Body Therapy in Cary offers a classic hot stone therapy, during which heated stones are placed on the body to provide warming relaxation and relief to sore muscles.  Steam room sessions are also complimentary with the purchase of any massage, or you can heat up with a steam session alone.  Putting a little twist on the hot stone massage, Synergy Spa in downtown Raleigh offers a basalt stone therapy that uses a combination of Swedish and deep tissue massages with hot stone.

At Jolie Day Spa you can get a unique hot lava mud manicure, a specialized treatment that soothes and hydrates with volcanic minerals and mud and ends with your hands absorbing heat and hydration in warm mitts.  A pedicure version is also available.

One of the most decadent spas in the area, The Umstead Spa in Cary, has an indulgent stone massage that takes luxury to a whole new level.  They also offer a thermal facial that uses thermal water from Belgium and a warming thermal gel mask to leave your skin quenched, revitalized and refreshed.

If you feel more relaxed just from reading about these therapies, then you should take a break from the cold and experience their warmth today.  For a comprehensive list of all spas and salons in the area, visit this site.
