Save at the spa: Opt for basic and/or shorter treatments

Straightforward Swedish or deep-tissue massages, simple sugar or salt scrubs, and basic deep-cleansing or moisturizing facials cost less than more elaborate treatments. Period. These days, spas who appreciate their clients are getting back to basics–but good-quality basics so everyone saves money. And although it’s nice to indulge in a 60- to 90-minute minute massage or reflexology session, you can benefit nearly the same from the more-affordable 30-, 50- or 70-minute therapies that are increasingly on offer.
