Prenatal Pampering: Spas that Cater to Moms-to-Be
If you’re looking for a good reputation, look no further than the candy aisle and you’ll understand what makes the Spa at the The Hotel Hershey in Pennsylvania as famous as the chocolate which shares its name.
Since opening in January 2001, signature treatments based on cocoa and other elements of the region all relate to the history of Milton Hershey.
“We’ve worked with chemists and estheticians to develop the very same sweet scent of chocolate that you smell entering the town of Hershey,” enthuses The Spa at Hotel Hershey Director Jennifer Wayland-Smith.
A 2004 expansion doubled the spa’s size with 53 treatment areas where you can be dipped, wrapped, and submersed in chocolate. Certain treatments are not recommended for expectant mothers including hydrotherapy, body wraps, and tissue massages. Pregnant women can enjoy a 50-minute prenatal massage, Spa Rain Shower, and exfoliation treatments like the Chocolate Bean Polish, Peppermint Salt Scrub, Strawberry Parfait Scrub, or a Cuban-inspired Mojito Sugar Scrub.
For the expectant mom with a growing family, the spa offers a family-friendly environment that caters to adults as well as special services for teens.
Ritz Carlton Spa
The Ritz Carlton Spa in Orlando, Florida, has done over 366 pregnancy massages just since July 2003, when it added the service after seeing a demand for treatments with mothers-to-be.
The spa’s packages include a Mother-to-Be’s Day of Delight which features a
50-minute Citrus Magnolia Soufflé Pregnancy Massage that helps alleviate hip, leg, and lower back pressure and an Aqua Latte Foot Massage—a milk and herbal soak from a hydro pedicure chair where muscles in the legs and feet are massaged and energy flow is restored. Other services in the package include the Visible Brilliance Facial and Magnolia Milk Hydration Manicure and Pedicure.
