Unwind with a December in Manhattan Body Treatment

Massage + bourbon = bliss

December is for five things: shopping, drinking, shopping, eating, and shopping. That is, when the whole dern town isn’t wrapped in an ice cocoon.

Now that the roads are clear again, add a sixth item to the list with Hiatus Spa + Retreat’s December in Manhattan, an 80-minute, full-body experience based on the classic bourbon cocktail.

Change into your robe and be escorted to a candlelit room, where a therapeutic foot wash awaits. Then settle in for the next best thing to a long winter’s nap under plush Turkish Peshtemal linens.

A gentle head-to-toe exfoliation with a warm mask of antioxidant-packed black cherries, spicy nutmeg, and bourbon vanilla wakes your every atom. The fragrant ingredients are then massaged into your skin before you rinse off under the multiple jets of a Vichy shower.

As you slowly return to reality (and remember that you still need to buy your mother a holiday gift), you’ll get the very same drink for which this treat was named.

Bottoms up.

Available at Hiatus Spa + Retreat, 5560 West Lovers Lane, suite 250 (214-352-4111 or hiatusspa.com), $156 when you mention DailyCandy ($195 regularly).
