TIME TO RELAX AND RENEW AT THE SPA

White Party 2011 is here! Make sure you check out the most extensive local’s guide to the White Party Festival on page 18 of this issue. We spent a lot of time collecting this information so Wire’s readers can truly make the most of White Party and decide between the plethora of alternatives to party, party, party; while supporting Care Resource and its many programs for the GLBT community.
For me this week was also a stark reminder of the stress and pressures that publishing a weekly magazine can generate. Unfortunately, this stress led to my back acting up and it literally stopped me dead on my tracks from continuing my daily workouts. No running or lifting weights for five days to allow my back to get better. When I consulted with a neurosurgeon a few years ago, he determined that stress was the main cause of my pain and that managing it would be the key for a healthy, pain free lifestyle. Well doc, easier said then done when you have a weekly deadline to publish a magazine come hell or high water!
So I am left with the choice to live in pain or find effective ways to reduce and manage my stress besides working out – which really helps. After this last bout of pain I decided to put myself first again – sorry Wire – and find new ways to take care of Rafa. For months Jesse Spencer, my assistant, has been telling me about Planet Beach spa and how he loves all the services and treatments available with his monthly membership. So I finally decided to check it out and found a great new way to manage my stress, take care of myself, and totally relax my mind, body, and soul. I am now going to Planet Beach spa on a regular basis to escape the stress from my business and enjoy much needed relaxation and other great services. Planet Beach is located at 959 West Avenue in Miami Beach and their telephone number is 305.531.7899.
The cool thing about Planet Beach spa is that for the cost of what you would have to pay for at a traditional day spa for a regular massage or facial, you can enjoy unlimited services for a whole month. These services include massages, body hydration, far infrared sauna, oxygen therapy, UV tanning, spray tanning, facials, skincare, slim capsule, and cellulite reduction. That’s a lot of stuff to enjoy and choose from to take care of and pamper yourself. On my recent visits to Planet Beach I focused on massages and the body hydration therapy – which is also super relaxing.
I particularly enjoy doing one or two massages followed by a couple of other services. For example, a HydroMassage, followed by body hydration therapy, and quick a UV tan. The other massage services I really liked were AquaMassage, Cyber-Relax Massage, and Therasage. Because I like to tan by the pool, I also plan to start using their tanning services more often, as the weather cools down outside. Their tanning alternatives include an eight minute standing UV tanning bed and a twelve minute laying down UV tanning bed.
When I spend time at Planet Beach I definitely come out feeling better and relaxed, as my stress is drastically reduced. In addition, my back is certainly starting to get back to normal, enabling me to do my daily workouts again.
