Relax with Your Valentine

There’s no better way to melt away stress than a massage – and just in time for Valentine’s day, our professional massage therapists recommend a couple’s massage to help relax and reconnect with your sweetheart!

Relationships can suffer from increased levels of stress, leading to increases in blood pressure, body tension, GI stress, headaches and mood swings. This wrecks havoc on our level of patience which negatively affects our communication patterns.

Massage is helpful in directly affecting the nervous system in a positive way, allowing more over our overall stress in our lives. Massages are known to help decrease anxiety and fatigue, and increase circulation and concentration. Who wouldn’t want better sleep and energy for your significant other?

Using Couples Massage Therapy to connect with our partner can be a very effective way to decrease stress hormone release, increase some of the positive hormones in our bodies and increase bonding in your relationship.

To gift a couple’s massage to your valentine, request an appointment here.

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Spa at Fearrington!

Spring is feeling closer with the daily arrival of each new order of seeds! This week Fearrington gardener Donna Mears - who oversees the planning and planting of several cutting gardens used by Principle Floral Designer, Mary Stevens, and her team - began one of her favorite tasks: assembling the many varieties of cut-flower seeds which she will soon be sowing in our glasshouse. While many of these will be the tried-and-true flowers Mary loves and relies on, florists and gardeners would not... Full Post >

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Emma. We're taking a classic outfit consisting of a bottom, a tee and a jacket and twisting it today. What is fashion if not fun and experimental? As long as you start with the classics, you can use your imagination and create looks you'll love! Our tee from Porto is made of breathable microfiber that's made in Italy. It has a subtle print, a flattering silhouette and a feminine ruching detail at the sleeve. We love it paired with Blair Stanley's preppy-meets-tough... Full Post >
