It’s the start of a new year: a fresh start, an opportunity to try something new, and a reminder to treat yourself kindly in 2023. Wellness is central to many of the resolutions we make this time of year, and Frisco, Texas, is the perfect place to find the new you this year with a focus on self-care.
Not only do wellness activities make you feel better, but studies also show they boost your health as well. For example, massage therapy is known to boost mental health, according to HealthCareers, and approximately 70% of American adults use massage therapy for health purposes.
Frisco has you covered when it comes to a day of relaxation, unwinding, and pampering with more than 20 different spas and places for massages and other therapeutic treatments. That’s more than 20 ways to add wellness to your 2023, and maybe even turn it into a regular routine throughout the year. We’re rooting for you! Here are four places that make wellness enjoyable, the Frisco way.
This family-owned Frisco business offers salt therapy in a serene and soothing setting. It’s owned by a family that moved here in 2014 and wanted to find a natural remedy for allergies. After learning about dry salt therapy, they decided to open The Salt Retreat, focusing on therapeutic care in a relaxing spa setting. While it’s something we recommend experiencing for yourself, you can expect dimly lit rooms with glowing salt walls, relaxing music, and luxurious leather anti-gravity heated recliners.
Salt therapy is a completely natural and non-invasive way to help alleviate symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis along with respiratory conditions such as allergies and asthma. Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, making it useful for healing irritated skin. Salt is also relaxing and soothing, allowing you to breathe better with more oxygen intake. This is especially helpful for recovery after strenuous exercise.
An award-winning spa in Frisco, Culture: A Day Spa puts you at the center of the experience with tailored services for renewing the mind, body, and spirit. This is a Frisco-owned business and the owners, Katelin and Jon, picked the name Culture because they wanted to have a strong culture or experience for guests and staff. It’s also a nod to the many cultures that make Frisco a special place. The owners offer a suite of services and concepts based on what they’ve experienced in America and internationally.
These services include luxury massage treatments in private rooms that last 50-170 minutes, with everything from a hot stone massage to the exclusive “Tribute Massage”, which is tailored to include a blended melody of stones, cupping, exfoliation, and exemplary massage techniques.
There are spa packages for everything from a 2.5-hour couples retreat package to a luxurious full-day experience that lasts 5.5 hours. All packages are tailored to you — ensuring result-driven treatments.
The great thing about wellness is that it can mean something different to everyone. With award-winning golf in its backyard and a spa right in the hotel, The Westin Stonebriar Golf Resort & Spa is the perfect home base for wellness in 2023.
Right behind this hotel is the 18-hole Fazio Course, designed by famed golf course designer Tom Fazio. The course features dramatic landforms, subtly contoured greens, native grass order areas, and masterful bunkers, making it both a pleasure and a challenge for avid golfers.
The hotel’s Well & Being Spa is open to the public for reservations. It offers various services, including massages, facials, body treatments, and wax. In addition, the spa has eight treatment rooms — including a couples room — three relaxation lounges, eucalyptus steam showers, and a Halotherapy Salt Booth.
Want our suggestion? Make it a full wellness weekend with a day of golf followed by rejuvenation and recovery at the spa. The Stonebriar Golf Recover Massage is a great selection if you’re out on the links earlier in the day or week. And if golf isn’t your idea of a good time, simply make it a spa weekend without the tee time! There’s also a suite of couples massages, deep tissue massages, and the Well & Being Signature Massage.
Wellness for men finds a home in Hammer & Nails, a luxury grooming shop for guys. Once you enter the shop, a concierge team member helps personalize your visit and get you on your way to a private and relaxing grooming experience.
Along with cuts, shaves, manicures, and pedicures from knowledgeable professionals, Hammer & Nails offers many next-level experiences. These include oversized leather chairs, a big-screen TV, and noise-canceling headphones for the ultimate relaxation. Drinks are also available, with all your favorite brews, spirits, and mixed drinks waiting for you with every service. While solo time to recharge may be your preferred way to unwind, this place is also designed so you can connect with your friends in a relaxed environment.
