Sometimes, just going to Target and walking any aisle aimlessly that *isn’t* lined with Legos, Nerf guns, or baby doll accessories is enough to refuel and re-energize me. But sometimes, my man spoils me like crazy and we book a spa experience, which for me, is a guaranteed recharge to handle the chaos of life. Here’s a list of my favorites!
#1) The Spa at Briarcliff is hands-down the best spa experience I’ve had (okay, maybe Hawaii was better… 🙂 ), but at least locally, it’s top-notch for sure. The therapists are excellent and they offer a wide variety of massage types as well as an array of other services, including a “float”, which is a fun unique experience of floating in salt water. They also offer 3 plunge pools for your use before your massage appointment!
#2) Our favorite thing about the spa services at The Elms Hotel and Spa is definitely their grotto area. You can’t beat a quiet atmosphere, eucalyptus steam room, large hot tub, and rainforest shower. Falling asleep in the grotto has definitely happened to me on more than one occasion. 🙂 They also offer nail services, massages, body wraps, and baths. The best thing about getting any service at The Elms is that an all day pass to the grotto comes complementary.
#3) I’ve tried several nail salons in the Kansas City area and have had the best experience with XO Nails in Liberty at the corner of Hwy 152 and Flintlock. Their staff is friendly and does a great job.
