Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage


If thereís one universal Motherís Day spa gift, it is a massage. A therapeutic deep tissue massage is specifically aimed at releasing deep muscle tension and spasms, relieving pain, and alleviating dysfunction with slow, even pressure.

A massage is a welcome gift for the busy, stressed out mom who often doesnít know when her next spare moment or opportunity to relax will arrive.

A Med-spa Facial


Facials are a great option for Motherís Day because they smooth the skin, hydrate and leave mom feeling younger and refreshed. Many day spas offer high-level facials like the glycolic peel and facial.

A glycolic peel exfoliates dead-skin buildup to minimize lines, reduce breakouts and brighten skin. Application of a glycolic peel stimulates cell turnover to produce a smoother more youthful appearance.

A glycolic facial will also reduce fine lines, hydrate and reduce the appearance of age spots by using a pure glycolic sugar cane base and vitamins A and C with a rejuvenating mask treatment to restore skin to a youthful appearance with a radiant glow.

Designer Hair Cut and Finish


Create the ultimate Motherís Day experience for Mom at her favorite local salon. Give her the gift of a luxurious haircut and blowout. It will make her feel great and motivate her to spend an evening out with friends and family to show off her great new look.

An Anti Aging Facial

Day spas have been helping moms relax with warm, fluffy robes in a relaxing and rejuvenating environment for a very long time. An anti-aging facial is a perfect gift for Motherís Day.

Skin Waxing

As a fair warning, skin waxing isnít for every mom. But, but if it is a regular part of Momís beauty regimen it could be an ideal gift for her! Make sure the spaís esthetics staff has extensive training and are board certified and licensed. A skilled technician can provide waxing services that are effective and thorough but with a gentle touch.

Waxing options are numerous, including the American, French, Brazilian and Japanese Bikini waxing treatments but they do not end there. If it sounds confusing make it easy for everyone and purchase an Instant Gift Certificate so she can choose from a spaís extensive services menu.


Give Mom a day spa experience like an hour or two getting a pedicure or lavish foot treatment! With extensive spa menus Mom can get exactly what she wants and come home feeling beautiful and relaxed.

Keep in mind, this summer the hot new colors for pedicures are: turquoise, granite, light lavender, orange red, peach, gold, blue black, fuchsia and glitter for layering.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy day spas offer special treatments to help the body prepare for and acclimate to motherhood. Many offer prenatal massage, balancing facials, pampering pedicures and can reduce discomfort, counteract hormonal effects, and enhance the natural glow of pregnancy.

These specialized day spas often combine the most popular services as spa packages that can be enjoyed all the same day or scheduled on multiple days for an extended pampering experience.

Still unsure about what your mom or wife might like for Motherís Day? It's so easy, just purchase an Instant Gift Certificate at Joy of Spa and give her a spa gift she can choose and customize for herself.
