Feet are fi rst immersed in a soothing footbath, then dried, exfoliated and hydrated using the locally sourced Beeline Bee Heeled foot scrub and Beeline Bee Silk moisturizer. The session ends with expert nail shaping and polish. (50 min./$80+) Omni Mount Washington Spa, Bretton Woods, New Hampshire F F F F F F F F dr dr d d d d d us u us s us s us s in in i n Aligning seasonal treatments to your immediate environment can be crucial. For example, the Silverado Resort & Spa's Meyer lemon tree serves as a vital resource for one of the spa's most popular seasonal services. "When our tree is producing fruit during the summer, we off er a Meyer Lemon Salt Glow, which provides the uplifting benefi ts of our citrus, chamomile and aloe vera body scrub blend," says Bordeaux-Johlfs. Similarly, the team at the Omni Mount Washington Spa in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, factors in the property's scenic backyard when planning its summer menu. "We're surrounded by natural elements like rivers and mountains, so we try to incorporate nature into our treatments and bring the outdoors in," says spa director Jesse Tyler. Every year, Tyler and her team research artisan ingredients that can be infused into treatments. Past off erings have included services featuring locally harvested honey and candytuft, a fl ower specifi c to the Bretton Woods region. Holidays can also serve as inspiration. "We like to give guests something festive to celebrate the seasons with," explains Bordeaux-Johlfs. "That's why we off er services under the theme 'Red, White and Blueberry'—including the Strawberry Sprinkle Body Treatment (50 min./$135)—to tie in to the resort's annual 4th of July celebration." Capitalizing on the exotic vacation concept is another approach, especially if your spa caters heavily to locals. "We live in a constant state of summer, but Floridians like to have seasons distinguished, so that's a consideration," says Thompson. "We take that tropical getaway angle and highlight treatments with ingredients like mango, guava and coconut." The spa's Coconut Mango Firming Body Wrap has become a summer favorite among locals, she reports. To spread the word on the spa's seasonal off erings, Thompson runs promotions. "We sometimes off er $50 off to patrons who present a Florida ID," she says. "During slower periods, like the last weeks of August, we draw in locals with 50 percent discounts on our more expensive treatments. We also use hyperlocal platforms such as Living Social and Groupon." As for pricing these protocols, Tyler avoids reinventing the wheel. "We start by comparing them to a similar item on our existing menu," she says. "We consider how much time and how many products and tools are involved. Are they scarce resources? How many therapists can actually perform the service? The more specialized and involved the treatment, the more expensive it becomes." © GETTY IMAGES FROM THE MENU Meyer Lemon Salt Glow Harness the rejuvenating powers of lemons with a body treatment that will leave skin positively glowing. The service begins with a full body exfoliation using a proprietary concoction of sea salt, olive oil, locally sourced lemon juice, lemon essential oil and aloe vera. The skin is then cleansed with Olivina Meyer Lemon Body Wash and slathered in Olivina Meyer Lemon Hand & Body Moisturizer. While the body is absorbing the product, a foot and scalp massage is performed using chamomile essential oil. The longer session includes a body massage.

Skin is fi rst double-exfoliated with a coconut sugar scrub and mango wrap, which features active enzymes and vitamins to hydrate skin and gently slough dead cells. The service is fi nished with a fi rming lotion infused with coconut, shea butter and grapeseed oil, so skin is left more taut, supple and deeply moisturized. The longer protocol includes a relaxing 25-minute massage. (50-80 min./$99-$150) SiSpa, Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort, Florida s
