I love a good massage and spa session—who doesn’t? It detoxifies, relaxes, and refocuses you for the rest of the week. It’s the best way to spoil yourself and give yourself much needed “me” time.

Well, has some great news for you. Miami, Florida is known to have some of the best spas in the U.S. and the world and there’s no better time to visit Miami’s best spas than in July for Miami Spa month. During Miami Spa month, travelers and locals get the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and stimulate your senses at Miami’s hottest and trendiest spas for a fraction of the regular cost. It just doesn’t get any better than that, does it?

Discover the Best of Miami Spas during Miami Spa Month
From day spas, hotel, or resort spas to beachside massages, yoga or meditative spa treatments and eco-friendly shops, there are hundreds of spa options in Miami. It’s no wonder that spas are one of the top reasons why travelers visit Miami.

Uhma Spa (726 6th St., Miami Beach) is Miami’s first and only organic and green spa in Miami, voted as the most eco-friendly spa in the country. The spa reflects owners, Debora Leia and Marco Almeida’s genuine passion for environmentally friendly practices and the use of organic and natural products as a method for treatments that offer healing and renewal in a natural way. I’d highly recommend a Sabai Medicinal Herbal massage, a technique with Thai influence; the Lava-Shell massage, using shells taken from the South Pacific and filled with an algae mixture that is naturally warming; or a Vichy Shower treatment in the relaxing, rainforest-designed treatment room. Go to Uhmaspa for more.

The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental (500 Brickell Key Dr., Miami) is considered Miami’s only five-star spa, with Asian-inspired treatment rooms that have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay of downtown Miami. I had the pleasure of going on a Kundalini Journey, a two hour journey to achieve mental and physical relaxation. The only treatment of its kind in the world, it combines over 100 years of advanced therapeutic treatment and knowledge, using advanced massage techniques, aromatherapy, chakra reading and gemstone therapy and more. You’ll learn about how your body relates to the self in a way through this truly unique treatment. Go to Mandarin Oriental Spa for more.
