Hey Seattle mamas…you need a break. What’s that sound?

Oh, just a few million women saying taking one and saying “Ahhhhh.”  Spa Week is back, April 16-22, offering $50 deals on beauty and wellness treatments nationwide. Here in the Seattle area, 5 spas are in on the action, from Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa in Bellevue to the Penterra Spa at the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland.

I had the extreme pleasure of being invited to try out one of the three deals  offered by Penterra Spa…the Penterra Hot Stone Pedicure  “Our ultimate pedicure experience is a journey of scent and balance for the mind, body and spirit. Begin with wild-thyme foot scrub, rejuvenating volcanic mud mask, and warm paraffin wax treatment. Enjoy deep relaxation from the hot stone massage and finish with beautifully manicured feet!

That translates into 75 minutes of pure bliss.  But we’ll back up a bit, because the whole experience was fabulous.  Spa manager Angela McClellan greeted me, Megan of Not Martha and Cassandra of Coco + Kelley, and gave us a tour of the facilities.

I would be lying if I remember everything she told us, but let’s just say that I did.  I do remember the food part, because I always do, You can order spa cuisine (or as they call it Spa-pe-ti-zer) from their award winning restaurant Trellis.  Angela graciously had  wine and a few to sample waiting for us in the Sanctuary  when we returned from changing into fluffy robes and spa slippers.  We lounged, pretty much exactly as the woman pictured above is, until our specialists were ready for us.

I was whisked away by Younghee and I won’t bore you with the fabulous details, but it included my feet being massaged with warm stones…oh, that was nice. She also did pretty nail art…yes, those are my toes, but it was such a nice touch, I had to share!

I would suggest booking your appointment for one of their selected treatments ASAP…they have a few slots left.  The other gals loved their facial and body wrap so I say collectively we give it two thumbs up!  Ant the royal treatment wasn’t just because we were special guests, it’s what they do for everyone.

If you can’t make it during Spa Week,  Angela and the Penterra Spa have a special deal exclusively  for my readers, the Penterra Serenity Package.  It consists of your choice of the Penterra Signature 75 minute massage OR 75 minute facial PLUS the Penterra Classic 45 minute manicure OR 45 minute pedicure…2 hours of bliss for $165.  Valid until December 31, 2012.

When you call to book, tell them you want the Penterra Serenity Package and that you heard about it from the Not Just A Mommy! blog.  You may need to drop some hints to the man in your life to pamper you for Mother’s Day….
