The holiday season is upon us! Along with the incredible home cooked meals and festive family reunions comes the undeniable stress of crowded holiday shopping and event-filled calendars. We all know how busy the holidays can get with meals to prep, gifts to wrap, and trees to decorate.
While the holidays are a time for celebration, it can be easy to get swept up in the motion of family drama, shopping madness and crazy travel. During this time, it is important to take a step back and reflect on all the amazing aspects of life. The Burke Williams team encourages spa guests to practice gratitude and find peace in their lives. In honor of the holiday season, members of the dedicated Burke Williams team took a moment to practice what they preach and reflect on what they are thankful for in 2018.
Everyone deserves a break from their daily routine. At Burke Williams, we believe that taking the time for self-care is essential for a renewed perspective and deeper sense of well-being. The moment you step into one of our spa sanctuaries and settle in for your Transformative Journey, you will begin feeling rested, renewed and reset.
National Relaxation Day is celebrated annually on August 15 and serves as a great reminder for the importance of taking the time to relax and rejuvenate. In honor of this self-care celebratory day, Burke Williams in Santa Monica welcomed press and influencers for an opportunity to retreat from reality and indulge in an evening of transformative treatments and luxurious amenities. Among the pampered guests was actress Scout Compton, social influencer’s Hannah and Sarah Montazami, the Editor from Radar Online, and DAYSPA associate editor Jasmine Brown.
For so long, men have excluded themselves from the skincare game. These days, the modern man understands that a well-groomed appearance starts with skincare. Burke Williams knows that men face the same struggles as women do – like acne, aging, and sensitivity (to name a few). Here are the best treatments and products from Burke Williams to keep you glowing from the inside out.
I have been visiting the iconic Burke Williams Day Spas for well over ten years and have grown to love the dark, cozy, lodge-like relaxing vibe that they have become know for. So it was a risky move for Burke Williams to shake up their tried and true brand image when designing their brand new Woodland Hills spa location, and I'm happy to say that it paid off. This spa isn't vintage classic comfortable Burke Williams at all, it's what I'm calling BW Nouveau aka BW NextGen and I LIKIE!
It’s your party and you’ll cry if you want to -- especially if someone overturns the punch bowl on your new ivory carpet. Plenty can go wrong when you play party host, and taking care of every detail means you have little if any time to enjoy the festivities yourself. So why not move your next party out of your home and into your local Burke Williams Spa instead? These four occasions provide the perfect excuse for a spa day:
In 2330 BC, the Tomb of Akmanthor was built in Saqqara, Egypt. Known as the "The Tomb of the Physician,” the site is covered with hieroglyphics and murals -- among them, the depiction of two men receiving hand and foot massages. The ancient tomb is proof that humans have been enjoying the benefits of massage for over 4,000 years, but for as long as we’ve been practicing the art of massage, many of us still know little about it.
Depth is a good thing – it makes poems sing and novels resonate, and without it, no one would go scuba diving ever again. So why do so many spa-goers shy away from deep-tissue massages?
