.03 / The Salt Room Winter Haven | 863.289.9476 | saltroomwinterhaven.com
The Salt Room Winter Haven provides a unique take on health and wellness while treating you with the easing relaxation of a spa. Recently “rediscovered,” salt therapies are offered in a wide range of treatments. Negatively charged ions in salt are found to improve mood, clarity, and overall health. Inhaling particles of these salts helps reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Stepping onto the salt-covered floor and amid the salt-covered walls, you’ll experience their state-of-the-art generator that pulverizes pharmaceutical salts into the room, reducing skin issues, acne, rashes, and assisting your breathing, immune system, allergies, and even the symptoms of a cold. You can also enjoy “Salty Yoga” led by yoga instructor Jhoanna Mukai on the first Tuesday and third Wednesday of every month.
.04 / Posh Salon & Day Spa .04 | 863.325.8700 | facebook.com/poshsaloninc
Posh Salon & Day Spa offers a variety of massages, from relaxation to deep tissue (even for mommies-to-be), plus a selection of facials, lash extensions, and a wide range of waxing services. Many of their facials are targeted for anti-aging and acne treatments.
.05 / Spa G & Boutique | 863.514.3070 | spa-g-boutique.business.site
Opened for nearly four years now, Spa G & Boutique offers an array of quality services, from facials to manicures and pedicures. Owner and esthetician Lynn Giddings says each client receives a one-on-one, unique experience of tranquility with her during every treatment. One of the most popular of the rejuvenating services is the chemical peel where a solution is applied to exfoliate the skin and gently peel away dead skin cells, allowing regenerated skin to grow. Chemical peels often result in a smoother, less wrinkled look to the face.
Spa G was the first Winter Haven spa to have a HydraFacial machine, a welcome relief to those who were traveling to Orlando for such treatments.
