3 Ways to Celebrate Mom with a Spa Day in Myrtle Beach

She made sure you were fed you when the only things you wanted to eat were hot dogs and chicken nuggets. She made sure you were bathed when you wanted to be covered in playground dirt and germs. She made sure you were comforted you when the mean kids at school stuffed you into your own backpack. Thank your mom for her unconditional love this Mother's Day with special treatment from one of the Myrtle Beach area's premier day spas.

Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation: Whether it's a 25-minute poolside massage for the non-stop mom or a luxurious three-and-a-half hour multi-treatment package for the mom who wants to put the world on hold for a while, Cinzia Spa has an experience for everyone. The unique International Rituals packages will transport her to Hawaii with pineapple and lomilomi, Fiji with coconut cream and a Fijian scalp massage, or India with an herbal scrub and Ayurvedic healing. A beautiful sculpture garden will surround her as she unwinds in Cinzia Spa's outdoor whirlpool, or she can sweat out her toxins in the Turkish steam room.   

Majestic Massage & Day Spa: Newly renovated with warm tones and soft lighting, Majestic Massage offers a head-to-toe signature massage with hot stones for all moms and a special prenatal massage that focuses on lower-back stress for mothers-to-be. She can relax or be revived by aromatherapy massage, be stretched and compressed by Thai massage, or experience the luxury of two masseuses all to herself with four-handed massage. Or combine Mother's Day and Father's Day this year with a special discounted couples massage and stir up some romance.

Celestial Spa on Cloud 9: With spa packages that include massages, facials, and a cheese and fruit platter, you can even pay Mom back for those childhood hot dogs and chicken nuggets at Celestial Spa. Unique services here include cupping, a process that uses cups to create soft-tissue suction that helps with everything from calming the nervous system to smoothing cellulite, and an algae-rich mud wrap with skin-firming benefits.

Whether she's the kind of mom who didn't mind you getting fingerpaint on her favorite shirt or the kind of mom who cooked dinner in pearls and heels, all kinds of moms love an hour or a day of rest and relaxation. With an afternoon at one of these Myrtle Beach day spas, Mom will feel even more loved this Mother’s Day.
