It’s that time…Christmas time is here!  (Well, almost!)  It is getting closer though and if you want to make this holiday as perfect as can be during your Kenosha Christmas vacation, you will need to gift some time to yourself (or to someone on your list) to enjoy some of Kenosha’s classic holiday pampering spots!  Hip, hip hooray, for Christmas vacation!

Equinox - The Body and Soul Boutique

You will love Equinox.  Schedule a massage or facial while you are in town to cuddle up and do some Christmas dreaming.  They offer massages for couples, warm stone massage, rain drop therapy, Swedish massage, and Tui Na.  You can really treat yourself and go for the Ultimate Equinox - a warm sea salt foot soak and massage followed by a Swedish massage with warmed oils/creams combined with essential oils to melt away stress and tension inducing a deep state of relaxation.  (You might even experience sugarplums dancing in your head!)  Deep tissue can be added to any massage for a small charge.

Body treatments are also offered including ear candling, dry brushing, organic body scrubs and foot treatments, and reiki.

Therapeutic organic facial treatments include a personalized skin consultation and will focus on your face and neck and you can add your décolleté and/or your back as well to be treated.  Treatment lengths and charges can be found on their website.

Be sure to dash through their store to explore their products from Eminence, SunLeaf Naturals, Sunbeam Candles and experience some local art as well. 

Celebrate the season by giving a gift certificate or spread cheer by gifting a special product.  Whatever you choose, it will ensure a merry little Christmas this year!
