During the New Year celebrations come the conversations about resolutions – most of which are centered about living a fuller, healthier life. And with good reason!
In that light, we’re jump starting 2019 with our own suggestion that you start the year off right by spoiling yourself at one or more of the finer or historic spas in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee region.
From the ultra-luxurious Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe Spa to Sierra Hot Springs in Sierraville, CA the High Sierra offers ‘the best of all worlds’ with options to please spa enthusiasts for all genres and generations.
No matter how you start the new year, we wish you a safe and memorable celebration with a healthy and prosperous new year to come.
Happy New Year!

How does a warming Winter Scrub, Wrap, and Massage sound to start your new year off right? Or maybe try something brand new for the new you: A Cinnamon Maple Body Treatment or Cinnamon Maple Mani Pedi as a treat from tip to toe? No matter when you go, we know you’ll enjoy one or more of their locally-inspired therapies and heated lap pool overlooking the slopes of Northstar California.
One of the most comprehensive selections for spa and wellness services await your arrival at Zenergy Spa and Wellness in Truckee, CA. Promoting “Customized Massages,” their therapists review your personal preferences and then offer a combination of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Trigger Point Therapy and their Signature Truckee Therapy Massage. If you live in the area, or frequent the Tahoe/Truckee region, be sure to check out their “Discovery” program of regular massages “to help your body maintain optimal health … and significantly shorten recovery time after an injury or surgery.”

Resort at Squaw Creek Spa has one of the most appreciated and praised lists of spa treatments in the Sierra – for all generations to enjoy! From their Seasonal Specials, to signature organic HydraFacials, Body Wraps and Scrubs, and Hot Stone and High-Altitude Massage options, you will need to make a list and check it twice!
And here’s one of the best ways to keep the whole family happy: check your kids into the oh-so-popular “Chillax Spa Sessions” for kids!

There’s a reason why Massage on the Lake on Tahoe’s West Shore is voted as the “Top Spot for a Massage” year after year. Their website tells their story best:
“Our space is inspired by the principles of Feng Shui; you’ll feel lighter, healthier, and more inspired the moment you walk through the door.”
Taking the Tahoe seasons as their inspiration, in the winter months they feature a Hot Stone Treatment, Antioxidant Cranberry or Champagne Rose Scrubs or warm and welcoming Aromatherapy Wraps. In the warmer months, think “Mango, Coconut, or Lime Scrubs” to get you in the mood for fun in the sun.
Just across from the sandy beaches of Tahoe Vista on the Lake’s north shore, North Lake Massage and Skin Care offers a wide variety of services throughout the year. As noted on their website:
“Our goal is for all to have the most relaxing, therapeutic, wonderful and unique experience possible during your stay in beautiful North Lake Tahoe, CA.”
It’s another ‘local’s favorite’ that is known for its personal service and reasonable prices for massages, facials, waxing, reflexology, and variety of reasonable spa packages. North Lake Massage and Ski Care is one of very few businesses to offer airbrush spray tanning at Lake Tahoe.
AND FOR THE MORE ADVENTUROUS …

For over 150 years, Native Americans have regarded Sierra Hot Springs as a “sacred healing place.” Today, the staff invite you to experience their “enchanted forest wrapped within a beautiful alpine valley.” Although it is popular retreat and workshop center, it also offers day use of three well-defined (clothing optional) natural springs.
Within the Sierra Hot Springs area are 700 acres that border National Forest land so cross -country skiing, snowshoeing, biking, and hiking are common activities.
UNPLUG, UNWIND, CELEBRATE YOU.
Those are just the highlights of the spa and wellness services that are all a part of living a healthy life wrapped with the natural magnificence of the High Sierra.
On behalf of our real estate office in Truckee, CA, we encourage you to find the time to unplug, unwind, and spoil your body and senses as we slip into 2019.
