Speedy Spa

While you’re penciling in emergency pediatrician appointments (thanks, flu season!), grocery shopping and much more, be sure to show yourself some appreciation: Schedule a quick spa visit at these area pampering palaces for a quick pick-me-up that won’t stress you out.

exhale Dallas, Dallas.
This zen-like paradise caters specifically to those with busy lifestyles (ahem, moms!). The spa’s “wellbar” touts temptations like a “quick-fix face peel” (20 minutes, $50) or a “blemish banish” treatment with blue-light therapy (20 minutes, $20).  214/370-5800; www.exhalespa.com

spa*habitat, in Dallas and Plano.
This all-organic mecca makes efficient use of spa patrons’ time. But, despite the uber-quick treatments, spa*habitat doesn’t skimp when it comes to using products that are organic and Earth-friendly. Try the “organic foot ritual,” a 25-minute pedicure ($30). 214/522-9989 and 972/442-7322; www.spahabitat.com

Solare Spa, Frisco.
Stop by this spa and café during your lunch break (or after carpool) and take advantage of Solare’s quick services. The “hydration therapy” will replenish your glow (25 minutes, $45), while the “tootsie wrap” will soothe tired feet (25 minutes, $55). 972/712-3030; www.solarespa.com

Moda Salon+Spa+Yoga, in Fort Worth and Arlington. This AVEDA spa will sweep you off your feet with its 30-minute intensive reflexology treatment, stimulating pressure points in the hands and feet to relieve aches and pains ($45). Don’t want to commit to a 30-minute massage? Opt for the “quickie”—a 10-, 15- or 20-minute chair massage that will ease tense shoulders (starting at $12). 817/732-3733; www.modasalonandspa.com.

The Terrace Retreat, Colleyville. Indulge your hands in a quick “Terrace” manicure, lasting 30 minutes ($25). Or, enjoy a rejuvenating “stress-relief” massage focused on whatever muscles ail you (30 minutes, $55). The spa’s “classic facial” includes exfoliation, massage and an intensive skin treatment (30 minutes, $55). 817/788-0800; www.terraceretreat.com.

Tangerine Spa, in Coppell. The bright orange décor of this fresh spa will invigorate any busy mom. Browse the extensive selection of AVEDA products, snag a Starbucks (this place keeps it on tap!) and treat yourself to a “mini pedi” or “mini mani” (30 minutes each, $35). 972/393-9200; www.tangerinesalon.net

Essentials Day Spa, Denton. Enter this renovated 1920s home in Denton’s Historic District to get away from the hustle of modern-day life—but don’t leave behind 21st-century luxuries! Keep things short and simple with a reflexology massage or chair massage (both 30 minutes, starting at $35). Or, treat your fingernails to a 30-minute manicure ($25). Essentials also offers “facial cupping,” a treatment utilizing small suction cups that help lesson fine lines and plump skin with increased circulation—this is an ancient technique that helps relieve sinus pressure, too (15 minutes, $15). 940/243-7546; www.essentials-dayspa.com
