1. FOF Catherine Del Spina

"It's facials by subscription. It is so fantastic. A facial is $89 but if you’re a member you can go once a month for about $49 each. That's one of the ways I completely relax. I have to fight not to fall asleep because it’s so calming."

: Lavender Relax Body Treatment
at the Canyon Ranch Spa
in Lenox, Mass., 50 minutes, $160 or 100 minutes, $270
“Any and all of the personal trainers at this Spa are so trained and in tune with your needs. After properly working out, I follow with a Tai Chi or Chi Gong class outside under the majestic trees of the Berkshires, then get a spa body lavender treatment to pamper and improve my skin. Heaven!”

“Mona is an esthetician that I've gone to for 15 years. I think she knows as much about skin as any dermatologist I’ve ever been to. She does facials, laser genesis and tightening. She tailors her treatments to whatever she thinks you need. I'm trying to avoid ever having a face lift by going to her. She's excellent."

8. FOF Alison Spear
: Master Cleanse

9. FOF Jenni Lipa
: The Aromasoul-Oriental Ritual
at the Sagestone Spa at Red Mountain
in St. George, Utah 75 minutes, $160
“Set in the midst of Red Rock country, Red Mountain Spa is one of my all–time favorite destinations. I’ve been there once a year for the past ten years, and I always leave feeling rejuvenated—body and soul. All their treatments are inspired by beauty practices from around the world, using indigenous desert botanicals, Utah honey and mineral rich muds, essential oils, balms and rich body butters. My personal favorite treatment: The Aromasoul-Oriental Ritual, where elements of Chinese massage increase energy flow and replenish vitality. It’s great for relieving stress and arthritis!”
