Between meals, live entertainment and art galleries, carve out time to pamper yourself at these spas in the Missouri Ozarks.
BODY WRAP AT ACACIA SPA
Once you’ve walked the Galloway Creek Greenway Trail and grabbed a beer at one of the two local breweries in Galloway, book some you time at Acacia Spa (4058 S. Lone Pine Ave., Springfield). This oasis offers the Restorative Stone Crop Body Treatment—a deep-hydration treatment with a facial and scalp massage.
EXPRESS FACIAL AT NU ESSENCE SPA
If you’re tight on time, then book an express facial at Nu Essence Spa (1319 E. Republic Road, Springfield). There are two 30-minute facials to choose from, and both will give you enough time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
SHOWER (BUT BETTER) AT GROVE SPA
This is truly the best shower you’ll ever have, partly because all you have to do is lie down and relax. The Vichy Gold Experience is a new treatment at Grove Spa (1522 E. Sunshine St., Springfield), and it’s a 30-minute service where you get to enjoy a body exfoliation scrub followed by a warm rain massage. You’ll never look at your shower the same again.
SPA COMBO AT CEDAR CREEK SPA & SALON

A trip to Cedar Creek Spa & Salon at Big Cedar Lodge (190 Top of the Rock Road, Ridgedale) is worth the drive. Walking around the Big Cedar property is relaxing on its own. You can easily spend the whole day here. Soak in the grotto, sweat it out in the steam room or sip on some tea on one of the patios and enjoy time to yourself. To make the most of your time, book a 45-minute relaxation massage paired with a 45-minute facial. Grab lunch at Devil’s Pool Restaurant afterward.
