Give Mom a Hand

Robyn Passante

Handmade cards, gifts and afternoons spent with family are nice, but what many moms really want for Mother’s Day is some relaxing time “off.” Give Mom the gift of self-indulgent pampering on May 8 with one of these spa treatments. You’re sure to earn “favorite child” honors in return.

Make Mom Happy, Healthy and Wise ($202) at EsSpa Kozmetika at The Carnegie Inn with this trio of treatments that includes an organic champagne facial, a 90-minute Swedish massage and a Hungarian spa pedicure. 100 Cricklewood Drive,

If you think she’d like some company on her special day out, try the Mother-Daughter Beauty Day ($299 per person) at Designer’s Denn Salon & Spa. It includes a Signature Facial, Classic Manicure and Pedicure, blow dry and style, expert make-up artistry and a spa lunch.
212 East Calder Way,

If Mom seeks deep relaxation but prefers a lighter touch, try the 60-minute private Hot Stone Massage ($85) from The D-Stress Station in Boalsburg. Add on a stop at the Oxygen Bar ($10) to further reduce her stress and increase her energy. 111 Boal Ave.,

Give her an extra glow with the Elohi Tan Massage ($95) at Simply Health Salt Spa. She’ll get a 60-minute massage that includes a full-body exfoliation and Elohi tanning crème, which leaves her with a natural-looking tan that lasts up to two weeks. 1760 S. Atherton St.,

Let the feet treat Mom well with Ashiatsu Foot Massage ($65 for 45 minutes) at Artemis Massage Studio. The Japanese art of foot pressure — the therapist uses her feet on your body — is used to relax and lengthen tight muscles in a more comfortable way than with traditional deep tissue massage.
111 Sowers St., Suite 400,
