Feel Refreshed at These Spas in the Hudson Valley

Sit back and relax with a much-needed massage or a full weekend of masks and treatments at these Hudson Valley spas and wellness centers.

When you’re feeling more stressed than ever, it’s important to relax and unwind to give your body a break. And as you know, chronic stress is a health hazard. Since it can be hard to chill—especially when work, school, and snow days pile up—treat yourself to R&R at a day spa.

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.

During this immersive experience, you’ll step into a light-proof and sound-insulated tank (by yourself and nude), that’s filled with 10 inches of water and 1,000-plus pounds of Epsom salts. Get ready to feel literally weightless (the salts make a solution as buoyant as the Dead Sea). The water is warmed to 93.4° F—the same temperature as your skin. Flotation therapy is best known for stress relief and muscle recovery, but it’s also said to boost creativity thanks to the “twilight state” (the period between wakefulness and sleep) that you’re bound to experience.
