If you haven't been to Spa on the Boulevard, the newest and biggest Salon by Debbie, which opened earlier this year, this last blast of winter is a great time to check it out. (There are now three Salons by Debbie, including Spa in the Valley in Hunt Valley, which is now undergoing renovations in its body treatment area.)
Ask for the Lavender & Calendula Herbal Massage, aimed at helping dry skin while also relieving stress. Start in the Eucalyptus steam room, for a dose of skin hydration and a muscle-relaxing experience. The massage follows. The spa uses a hand-crafted herbal infusion featuring organic calendula and lavender flowers in apricot kernel and olive oil. The warm oil is worked into the skin while warm compresses are applied to the back to help the oils soak in.
The treatment ends with a herbal oil scalp massage, a perfect ending to your 90 minute indulgence.
