Reading, Writing and Relaxing: A Back-to-School Spa Special for Parents (or Anyone, Really)

By: Dalia Colon



When I had my daughter last year, my friend Kiva emailed me this sound advice: “You have to do something for yourself once in awhile. Otherwise, you’ll go crazy.”


Truer words were never typed.


So far all the parents who’ve kept their children happy and healthy over the long summer vacation, back-to-school time is your chance to regain some sanity. As your kids brush up on the three R’s -- reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic -- you can brush up on those two R’s -- rest and relaxation.


Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate has just the assignment for you: its aptly named Summer Recovery Package. The package includes your choice of three spa treatments. Choose from the following:


  • Stress Buster Neck and Shoulder Massage

  • Refresher Facial

  • Eye and Lip Hydrating Treatment

  • Express Manicure

  • Express Pedicure


The package costs $149 (a $200 value) and takes just 90 minutes for all three treatments. Just pop in a DVD, and your kids will never even know you were gone. You may also upgrade to a two-hour package for $199 (a $265 value).


So between making appointments for school physicals and making (or buying) cupcakes for that bake sale, be sure to book your spa treatments. The offer ends Sept. 30, 2013. Call 407-390-6664 or go to
