Eight Common Spas and The Services They Offer

There are a whole host of different spas now available in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to the public at large. The Dallas/Fort Worth area is quite large, one of the biggest metros in the U.S. As Dallasites we’re often bombarded with advertising from billboards, to radio commercials, to even trollies in Uptown!One common activity of the well-to-do crowd Dallas is known for, is to seek spas for a variety of services. We do this for a variety of reasons: get fit, to get beautiful, to remove unsightly hair, to remove wrinkles, to look younger, to detox, and rejuvenate to name just a very few. This said, how do you keep track of what kinds of spas are available, which ones offer which services, and consequently, which spas you would be most benefited by seeking the services of? Below, we review the most popular types of spas available to you, what their common services are, and why they might be the best choice for your particular needs.1. Wellness Spas: Wellness spas focus on holistic care, not just giving the services to the patients while they are there, but also teaching them how to administer this inner healing on their own. Common sessions include introduction to yoga and the mind/body connection, maximum health, and avoidance of disease. Many of these are in Uptown, around Mckinney, or Downtown Dallas. Look for ads in the Observer, Envy, or Paper City. If you’re in Fort Worth, pick up the Fort Worth Weekly.2. Medical Spas: Medical Spas offer a variety of medical services offered by doctors- which include laser hair removal, acne treatments, chemical facials, botox injections, and other related services. There are several billboards featuring many of these types of spas along Central Expressway in Dallas. Laser hair removal and Botox are two of the most used services in DFW of all the spas combined.3. Day Spas: Day spas are characterized by the length of treatment and can apply to many different types of spas offering different services-though more often than not- a day spa will refer to one that is for the purposes of pampering. Many of these exist between Dallas and Fort Worth, along I-30 west. I’m sure this is so they can be seen from the highway.4. Stay Spas or Spa Resorts: Stay spas or spa resorts refer to the types of spas that allow you to stay overnight. The lodging is a part of the spa experience, and these spas can vary in the types and nature of services offered there. Common stay spas include weight loss spas, health spas, and rehab spas as mentioned in this articles. The Gaylord Texan in Grapevine has a resort type spa popular for those visiting Texas.5. Pamper Spas: Pamper spas are probably the most common spas there are-the ones you may recognize in movies or other media outlets. Pamper spas do just that-offer their clients a wide range of pampering services and products to ensure that they feel as rested and relaxed as possible. Common services include: decadent foods, facials, massages, etc. Some spas specialize in these services, but many have them along with their other main services.6. Health Spas: Health spas-though easily confused with wellness spas-center on a health experience that is holistic and comprehensive-including exercise, healthy foods, meditation, and other health practice. Some may even call this a gym. There are several hundred gyms and workout facilities in the DFW area.7. Weight Loss Spas: Weight loss spas are typically stay spas as they require a commitment to the weight loss services offered there over an extended period of time-whether it be for a weekend or a week. These clinics focus on offering exercise and food regimens that promote weight loss in a healthy, detoxifying manner. They may also specialize in body wraps. Again, look in the local magazines such as D Magazine, or the Observer.8. Rehab Spas: Another type of spa is a rehab spa-common to celebrities-which is characterized by offering a refuge from a variety of stressors and addictions. This type of spa is a stay spa which incorporates a feeling of escape, while also ensuring that only positive influences are present, while negative ones-such as addictions, stress, over work, etc-are not a part of the environment.These eight types of spas pretty much encompass the main offerings of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. We’re not all just cowboy hats and BBQ. Take a break and enjoy what this city has to offer.
