Spas to Cure Winter Blues

Have you started counting down the days to Long Island summer yet? Once the chill sweeps through the air, it’s hard not to think about relaxing on Robert Moses Beach or sipping vino among the grapevines. Thankfully there’s one great way to forget about the frigid temperatures for a while: getting pampered in one of Long Island’s cozy spas. Head to any of these five spas before or after you submerge yourself in wellness when Pulse hosts an evening with cocktails and light fare at Ocean Spray Hot Tubs & Saunas on March 9.

The Stress Buster Package, for example, puts customers in a “state of euphoria for the mind and body” thanks to the inclusion of a body massage and a facial. Customers rave about the latter and the friendly staff. Go

Then spend the night in one of the chic rooms with wooden floors and white walls overlooking the ocean. Need I say more? Go
