Soothe Your Mind and Body at These Self-Care Spots in Richmond, VA

Between working, socializing and surviving – it can be hard to take a moment for yourself. Self-care is one of those things that’s easy to talk about but hard to do.

By the time you can find something relaxing, the planning and travel can feel like another chore.

CityParking is here to make wellness easier for you to find. With easy-to-use parking, you can get to your favorite salon, spa and studios without any stress.

Whether your favorite method of self-care is practicing yoga, booking a massage or revitalizing your look – Richmond has what you need.

Check out our list of ways you can feel refreshed and relaxed.

Book Yourself a Spa Day

If you’re looking to fully emerge yourself in wellness, a trip to the spa is not a bad place to start. You can get help caring for your hair, nails and skin while at the spa.

Downtown Richmond’s Jefferson Hotel is well-known for its luxurious amenities complete with the Spa Vivace. This spa’s signature packages offer something for everyone. You can keep it simple with a facial and mani-pedi. Or, try their “Celebrity Favorite” which takes care of your hair, nails, muscles, skin and make-up.

Let Go of Your Stress with a Massage

When you need to let go of tension and muscle soreness, a massage can make you feel so much better.

Massage therapists focus on reducing pain which in turn can help lower your overall stress levels.

After a massage you might experience better energy and it carries positive health impacts such as a lowered heart rate and blood pressure.

For massages in The Fan, try True Bleu Healing Arts for a variety of massage styles as well as cupping, meditation and reiki.

Most exercise feels like it’s draining your energy levels and leaves you feeling tired. Many styles of yoga are designed to help you feel rejuvenated and set intentions or goals for your day.

Yoga is an excellent way to clear your mind, increase blood flow and warm your muscles. Regularly practicing yoga helps you build strength, develop a better balance and improve your flexibility.
