Sit back and relax with a much-needed massage or a full weekend of masks and treatments – all with COVID-19 protocols in place.

From the early mountain houses to more recent resort towns, the Hudson Valley has long served as a relaxing and restorative site. Today, local spas continue that legacy, offering day-long treatments as well as more extensive, vacation-friendly packages for those looking for a deep cleanse.

Now that spas are back up and running, here’s what you need to know about what they’re doing to keep everyone safe, healthy, and seriously relaxed in the Hudson Valley.
