LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 12 Forget flowers and don't even think about teddy bears this Valentine's Day. Instead show that special someone how much you care with time at the spa. You can indulge your sweetheart with a soothing spa treatment, or couples can relax together with a time-out at the spa.
"With the stress of the holidays finally over, Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity for you and a loved one to de-stress," said ISPA President Lynne McNees. "In fact, stress is the No. 1 reason people go to the spa. There is no better place to take a time-out and reconnect."
