15 Holiday Spa Specials For When You Really Need a Break From All This

If you can spare an hour (or five) from your jam-packed seasonal schedule, you should treat yourself.

By Abby Ledoux December 20, 2018

You need this.

‘Tis the season to be holly, jolly, and stressed out of your mind. Between last-minute presents, parties, and god-awful holiday travel, this time of year can be fraught with tension, and concern for our own wellbeing plummets to the very bottom of the list.

Over here at Houstonia Holiday HQ, we think that’s just not right. So, as our gift to you, we’ve compiled a list of the best seasonal treats (or year-round packages that we could really use right now) on offer at some of our favorite local spas. Of course, you can always give a service to someone on your list, but if you can spare an hour or two to get pampered, we recommend indulging. Besides, the best gifts are the ones we give to ourselves.
