It isn’t just plants peeking out come spring; parts of the body — legs and feet, for example, have not likely seen the sun since last fall, while other parts have borne the brunt of winter (literally) on the nose. A spa session might be just the key to get in sync with new rhythms of spring.

The COEUR D’ALENE RESORT SPA can pencil you in for a little pampering — a mani-pedi, Swedish massage, or facial — or a package like the Ginger Restore and Renew: a gentle scrub, mineral soak and invigorating massage. The resort has numerous SPA AND STAY PACKAGES to entice you — and maybe a close friend — to make a day and night of your experience. Their spring break special, for example, includes a (discounted) spa treatment, overnight stay and $30 credit for breakfast at Dockside or using room service. Call 855-703-4648 or visit

ZI SPA wants to help you lead a calmer, more peace-filled life one spa experience at a time with pampering from hair to hands and face to feet. Luxuriate in an individual facial, skin treatment, massage, body wrap, detox, reflexology session or schedule a spa package, like Queen for a Day (early Mother’s Day present?) or King for a Day (don’t forget about Dad). Call 208-765-9400 or visit

If you haven’t checked out the COEUR D’ALENE CASINO RESORT & HOTEL Spa Ssakwa’q’n yet, you’re missing out on this gem of affordable luxury. Repair winter’s damage with a facial, get a Sacred Forest massage, or commit to a day of pampering with one of Spa Ssakwa’q’n’s numerous spa packages. Call 855-232-2772 or visit
