Most of us score a lot of days off from the office in November and December, but almost any other time of the year, the grind can really get to you, right? Between work, school, taking care of others, there always seems to be too little time to relax. So the best way to give yourself some much-deserved “me time” is by checking out some of the best spas in Austin. What’s better than a great spa is grabbing an amazing deal. Start by heading over to your favorite salon and indulge in an incredible full body massage, a refreshing facial, or even some of the most technologically advanced treatments for eliminating cellulite, wrinkles, and other undesirable spots.
Here are some of the best spas in Austin that locals can’t stop raving about.
This locally-owned spa is operated by deep-tissue massage professionals with more than two decades experience de-stressing Austinites, relieving body aches, and reducing anxiety. While this establishment has “spa” in its name, the therapists at Massage Vida approach every massage like the therapeutic modalities they are. Therefore, your masseuse will ask you if you’re experiencing pain or have any areas you need your therapist to work on. Customers say it’s their client-focused service that motivates them to return again and again.

Green Care Massage
North Austin’s Green Care Massage is staffed by therapists who work with clients to develop custom, relaxation-focused massage sessions using techniques specially tailored to fit clients’ individual needs. In addition to solo massages, Green Care Massage offers couple and group sessions. Looking for something different? Try an ashiatsu massage. You may know it by a different description: someone walks on your back. Monks used to practice ashiatsu a few hundred years ago. Since the therapist can use her entire bodyweight, it’s probably one of the most intense, deep tissue massages you’ll ever experience.
