January can be a pretty stressful month.
Between all those resolutions to keep up with, the winter weather to contend with, and always having to change the 7 into a weirdly shaped 8 whenever you forget that it’s actually 2018 now, the worries can begin to pile up quite high.
Luckily, there’s a cure for all that pent up stress – and we don’t mean just eating a bunch of cookie dough and staying in bed all day (though that doesn’t sound too bad either).
Calgary is full of wonderful spas that can massage out those worries, soak away the responsibilities, and soothe your body and mind.
Here’s a few of our favourite spas around the city that are perfect for your next Treat Yo’ Self day out on the town:

What: This one’s a little more spiritual, but no less relaxing. Align your zen at Calgary’s Home of Om, where you can take part in private readings, massage therapy, float therapy, or trilotherapy; a type of meditation that eases your state of mind.
