The Best Spas in Morris and Essex Counties
The Best Spas in Morris County, NJ
(page 1 of 2)
It used to be that going for a spa treatment once a year—for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or holidays—was considered extravagant. Now people realize that getting regular spa treatments isn’t a luxury, but an important adjunct to good health. The benefits of massages (soothing your aching muscles and releasing toxins), facials (clearing your pores and hydrating your skin) and medical treatments (removing those unsightly spider veins) have helped bring spas growing acceptance. In fact, some insurance plans even cover massage and some of the dermatologic options. Plus, the stress relief you’ll get from regular pampering trips to your favorite spa is hard to match.
You spend your days balancing work, family and obligations—you deserve a little R & R. We picked the best spas of Morris and Essex counties—specializing in everything from basics such as massages and facials to the unusual, like belly casts (for pregnant women) and photorejuvenation (to even out skin tones). So book a sitter, put work on hold and treat yourself to a day of bliss.
