The holidays are great, but they take a toll on our bodies and minds through stress, less sleep, rich food and drink, and less time to take care of #1. Fortunately, the Health Beauty Spa Show comes to the rescue each January. Held at the Lair building at Spokane Community College, the 6th annual show offers inexpensive sample spa treatments for your whole body. Listen to soothing music and relax while you receive a lavender massage or hand paraffin treatment. If you are feeling a little rough around the edges, don’t do your hair or makeup so you can have free before and after photos taken by Northwest Artistic Photography. The best makeovers and glamorous transformations will win hundreds of dollars in prizes from Dimensions Salon and the Brick House Massage and Coffee Bar.
Each treatment costs just $5, so you can afford to splurge! Activities include facial waxing, cold laser, airbrush tanning, mini makeovers, manicures, skin treatments, Reiki treatments, hair styling, and reflexology. Twenty-three great local businesses are participating, from chiropractors to salons.
Admission is $7 for both days, or $5 if you bring a donation of non-perishable food or a hygiene item (such as shampoo or razors) to donate to the YWCA shelter. Tickets for treatments are $5, and there is a printable coupon on the Health Beauty Spa Show website for a free sample treatment. Click here to sign up for a coupon to be sent to your email address for three treatments for only $10. Hours are Saturday 11–6 and Sunday 12–5. The Lair south entrance is off Mission Street just east of Greene, and there is plenty of parking. Grab your friends and arrive early, as this show is popular!
