It’s no secret that we’re all spinning a lot of plates. Life was moving at warp speed as it was, and then 2020 decided to throw a few curveballs into the mix. We’re all facing new demands on our lives, and balance seems more elusive than ever. In all likelihood, self-care has slipped to the bottom of many of our to-do lists.
While massage is often viewed as the ultimate act of self-care, or a treat, or a luxury, the truth is regular massages can be incredibly good for you, and there are plenty of massage benefits beyond the obvious indulgence. Most people know that massage can be relaxing, but what you may not know is that massage can have a profound effect on your overall health and wellness. If you’re feeling a little sore, a little tight, a little tense or anxious, massage therapy can help you get things back into balance. Ahead, we’ll take a look at 5 reasons why massage is good for you.
Over the years, through trial and error, you’ve probably sifted through myriad cleansers, creams, toners, and serums in an effort to find “the one.” Some products undoubtedly go on to become must-haves that you dare not go a day without, while others just didn’t make the cut for one reason or another.
A day at the spa is always a nice treat, but the benefits of going to the spa visit extend far beyond the relaxation that comes with a luxurious massage or much-needed pedicure. Take a closer look at the benefits of a few popular spa treatments. If you’re on the fence about this self-care investment, this might just change your mind about going.
I’m beyond excited to introduce you to our new skincare line — not only because we’ve been working tirelessly to develop products that are hyperclean and effective but also because I know you (and your skin) will love it as much as I do. We have even more skincare products on the way, but there’s no better place to start than with our first two hydrating heroes: the Intense Hydration Cream and Luxe Face Oil.
Most importantly, I’m lucky to work alongside our talented team of estheticians at milk + honey, who have provided us with crucial feedback and expertise throughout the development process. Their hands-on knowledge and daily connection to both the spa and our clients differentiate us from just another product line.

We take great care and pride to feature products in all of our locations that we personally love, use, wear, etc. That’s why we’re excited to let you in on the newest product to hit our “shelves.” We now carry locally-made ZINK scarves and shawls at our 2nd Street District location.
These ZINK Shibori scarves and shawls are made from 100% unrefined cotton, are dyed by hand in Austin, and each one is unique and special. Wondering what ‘Shibori’ means? It’s a Japanese term for dyeing fabric using a variety of methods – like binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing, or capping – that result in an intricate graphic pattern.
To celebrate ZINK scarves being sold at our 2nd Street District location, we’re giving away TWO scarves. How to enter: from today, Aug 4, 2014, through Friday, Aug 8, 2014, make sure to LIKE both the milk + honey spa Facebook page and the ZINK Collection, then like our official giveaway post right here. That’s it — good luck!

From sunscreen to daily moisturizer, to a gentle (yet effective) body wash, we’ve got summer skincare on the brain. And rightfully so. With the sunny skies overhead, it’s as important as ever to apply a strong SPF, rinse off thoroughly after a long swim in the lake or the pool, and to hydrate consistently. To reinforce those summer-y feelings, we’ve selected the beauty products we can’t live without come summertime — and quite frankly, neither should you.
