Mom does it all: homework helper, chauffeur, food prep, and that’s all with logging hours at work and making time to play. Which is why Mother’s Day is the right time to give mom a few hours off and let her soak, steam and relax her cares away. Read on to find out where you can send mom to rejuvenate for her special day (and moms, please forward this on to drop the hint).

Everett House Healing Center
For a truly unique experience, let mom try “flotation” at the Everett House Healing Center. Flotation takes place in a tank of water filled with 800 pounds of Epson salt, which reduces gravity and allows the body to float in a dark and silent space. While this may not be for everybody, some mamas may relish in the chance to be in a silent space for 90 minutes. The service is also said to reduce swelling and blood pressure, increase circulation, and decrease lactic acid. Floats are by appointment only and cost $60.

Ruby’s Spa and Salon
Perhaps mom and dad could use a mini getaway for Mother’s Day. Located at the McMenamins Edgefield Hotel, Ruby’s Spa and Salon offers hour-long couples massages for $225, which comes with the added benefit of being able to use the outdoor, lagoon-like, heated soaking pool, that is only open to hotel guests and those with spa appointments. For a real treat, book a room and dinner reservations!
