De-Stress Before the Holidays in 10 Simple Steps

Miami-Spa Secrets

This could be you.

Office parties, three-day hangovers, crowded malls, the coming apocalypse. 'Tis the season to be a stressed-out basket case. But you don't have to be one. Especially if you follow these ten simple steps from your friends at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach ...

1. CHANNEL YOUR INNER WARRIOR
With our Spiritual Warrior Day Pass, you'll walk on fire, balance your chakra, try group acupuncture, and hoop your worries away. Join The Standard Spa for our 12.12.12 retreat, December 12th thru the 16th. See the full schedule here.

2. GET JUICED
Your system can't survive on wine alone! Why not give those kidneys a break before New Year's with our Weekend Chakra Juice Detox? It does the body good.

3. MANI UP
Pamper your hands and feet while sipping a glass of Prosecco. Our manicure and pedicure technicians will soak your extremities in warm coconut milk, exfoliate them with a tropical sugar scrub, and swath them in a detoxifying sea-mineral mask before they file a single nail. A foot massage with hot stones provides the perfect oh-so-happy ending.

4. GET A STANDARD 60
Our holistically focused practitioners combine multiple bodywork techniques, hydrotherapy, and essential oils to create a highly individualized therapeutic massage experience. Each session includes time for a personal consultation and post-massage recommendations.

5. SCRUB UP
The Standard’s signature soothing scrub is inspired by the bellystones of Turkish Hamams. You’ll be bathed with hydrating coconut milk and gently exfoliated on the delicious heated marble of the Hamam.

6. FORGET ABOUT BASEL
A day at the spa can work wonders! Hydrotherapy is a great day to get your blood flowing and a few minutes in the Hamam will help you detox, unwind, and forget about all the money you spent. Inquire at the spa about our special Post Basel De-stress day package.

7. DO A DOUBLE
Our healthy aging Double Lift Facial re-hydrates the skin, softens fine lines, firms up muscles and lightens dark circles.

8. GET TWISTED
Wake up extra early and start the day with bayside yoga for a renewed feeling of energy, strength and peace of mind.

9. CALL YOUR MUDDER
Get super dirty with your choice of Red Earth Detoxifying Mud, Purifying Golden Body Mud or Spirulina Smoothing Mud. These algae-infused masks tighten up the pores, banish blotchiness, clear toxins and even out your skin tone.

10. TAKE A NAP
... by our pool in the sunshine, ideally. It always helps!
