Pittsburgh Pampering! A List of My Favorite Spas in the 'Burgh

As one decade ends and another begins, one can expect the usual flurry of new weight loss programs, gym memberships and New Year’s resolutions galore.

It's the start of 2020 and for many people, a chance to create a new version of themselves; but what do you do after you’ve hit the gym every day and have been consuming  green smoothies all week? A little rest and relaxation of course! The good news is, for every fitness studio and healthy eating spot, there is a spa for maximum pampering! From the city to the suburbs, there’s a place to relax for everyone. 

Health Club & Spa at Fairmont Pgh 

Located in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh, join the post-work crowd for a mani-pedi or a relaxing steam in the Eucalyptus room designed to open breathing passages and relieve congestion. Select from a traditional list of spa services that’ll surely offer the highest levels of relaxation!

Even came with free champagne. 🍾 . . . . . . . . . . . . #bloomingingrace #bloomingrace #theelitesuite #midwestbesties #suiteheartland #thesocialitesuite #thinksocial #selfcare #selflove #suitemuggles #mindfulness #gracenotperfection #theuniversehasyourback #mentalhealth #enneagram4 #mindbodysoul #youareenough #selfacceptance #selflovejourney #mentalhealthrecovery #nedaweek #comeasyouare #holistichealth #mentalhealthawareness #selfcareisntselfish #selfcaresunday #dayspa #emotionalhealth #wahm #wahmlife
