Black Baltic Body Mud Wrap
Dry, flaky skin is never an attractive accessory. Get full-body hydration with the Black Baltic Body Mud Wrap at West Chester’s Calista Grand Salon & Spa.
Ingredients: The mud is rich in natural minerals, humic acid and organic silts (collected from 30,000-year-old fresh-water lakes in Eastern Europe). It also contains jojoba, avocado, and peach and sunflower oils. A refreshing, hydrokinetic Vichy water treatment washes away any traces of mud—which is unscented and hypoallergenic, so it’s perfect for sensitive skin.
Results: Promotes detoxification, extracts pore-clogging impurities and removes toxins.

Chill Out Beer Bath Wrap
The Chill Out Beer Bath Wrap at Glen Mills’ Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon is more lavish than it sounds. And, no, it’s not just for guys.
Ingredients: After a full-body, dry-brush exfoliation, a Bolus Alba mud wrap is applied. The herb-scented mud contains malt, barley and hops (hence the beer reference). The treatment also includes 25 minutes in the Soft Pak system (a pressure-free cushion of water), a scalp or facial massage, and a full-body oil application.
Results: The mud’s many beneficial vitamins, minerals and trace elements soften, rejuvenate and nourish skin.

Hot Towel Massage
Nothing’s more soothing than a fluffy, warm towel after a shower. At Ame Salon and Spa in Wayne, you can have your hot towel—and a pretty amazing shower, too.
Ingredients: The warmth of steamed towels infused with a calming aroma, plus a full body massage. Then reward yourself with a Waterworks Massage in Ame’s signature Rain Room. It starts off as a gentle mist before gradually increasing to more powerful streams. A spa technician is always available to regulate temperature and pressure.
Results: Soothes aching, tired muscles.
Price: $145 (Hot Towel), $75 (Waterworks).
