OPINION — Spa days are the best days.

Over the past couple months, I’ve made it my mission to find the most relaxing, refreshing and reviving treatments for you to try. (Because life is too short to only get Swedish massages.)

Here’s my Top 7 recommendations for treatments from heaven:

Desert Rain Massage

Where: Sagestone Spa at Red Mountain Resort, Ivins

Imagine receiving a full body massage as seven Vichy shower heads caress your body like an invigorating waterfall. Can’t imagine it? You should probably just try it!

Back Scratcher 

Where: The Spa & Salon at CasaBlanca Hotel, Resort and Casino, Mesquite, Nevada

Every time I get a massage they ask if I have any special requests. In my head, I say, “YES, tickle my back the entire time.” (because nothing feels better, am I right?) This 25 minute sugar scrub was made for me.

Benefits: Hydrates and exfoliates skin.

Floatation Therapy

Where: Elite Float Spa, St. George

Have you ever experienced zero gravity while floating in an Epsom-salt water-filled pod? This is a MUST TRY!

Benefits: Relieves pain and muscle cramps, helps with muscle and nerve function, increases physical relaxation.

Bonus: For $15 you can also buy a salt stone at the spa to use at home.
