What is it: Regular massage can help expel tension, rid toxins from your body, relax your mind and help stimulate your circulation for glowing skin. There are many types of massage — sport, relaxation, hot stone etc — and all have benefits for mind, body and spirit.
We say: "Having a luxurious massage after a long-haul flight to the other side of the world is a massive treat, and something I hadn’t experienced until I travelled to Europe by myself earlier this year. I wouldn’t normally prioritise a massage because there are so many things to see and do when you’re in a city like Paris, but after travelling for 30+ hours and spending long days walking around, there is actually nothing better!" — Jessica, POPSUGAR Australia managing editor
Where: We tried the City Detox at The Peninsula Paris, but we also love our local and natural spas Endota Spas, and the treatments at the QT Hotel's Spas — the hot massage at Falls Creek after a ski is heaven on earth.
How much is it? Prices start from $70 for a 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage.
Why it's worth it: A massage gives you a moment to do something just for yourself. Book in a regular treatment every four weeks to reap the rewards.
