This has been a long, long winter. Our Patch Picks today focuses on what we all need: a break. Here are five good choices in spas when you need a little me-time.
, 123 E. Main St. The spa provides a full range of services, including facials, massage, nails, tanning and tattoo removal. This month's special: if you or a party purchase three or more services, receive a 10 percent discount on next visit.
2. , 146 S. Main St. This spa in the South Plaza has a variety of services and packages that change regularly. The latest includes any two services from a menu of four options (including a one-hour massage and facial) for $110. Men, by the way, get their own specials.
3. 9 Western Ave., has an Avanti salon that is part of its location. A business in Milford for more than 20 years, it offers services ranging from makeup and hair styling to laser hair removal and chemical peels. The "barefoot elegance" pedicure is $45.
4. , 158 Main St., offers a range of services and prices in its newly expanded spa and salon. The choices are numerous, from teeth whitening to hair straightening, but in the spa services department, the "peppermint footsteps" option sounds like a cure for all of our tired feet.
5. , 130 Cedar St., has several appealing options for "winter treatments," including a fig and Indonesian candlewood facial, or a vanilla and caramel facial, for $80. The spa also offers a full range of skin care and massage treatments.
