Imagine this: You slip into warm sheets on a heated massage table, get exfoliated head to toe with a skin softening olive oil scrub, then get folded into an aromatic body wrap and doze off for twenty minutes. After be gently awakened by the kindest therapist, you slide off the table into a warm shower just steps away, only to crawl back into clean sheets for a 50-minute Swedish massage. After two hours of totally posh pampering, you basically have to be scraped off the table and carried back to the locker room.

That’s what to expect if you sign up for the Stress Melter Body Treatment at NYC’s Elizabeth Arden Red Door. It’s one of the most decadent spa treatments I’ve had recently and remindful of just how much of a mental vacation and physical rejuvenation a spa splurge can be. So why don’t we do this all the time? Because it’s expensive! The Stress Melter is $250, which is enough to bring the stress back if you are on a tight budget.
