Between meals, live entertainment and art galleries, carve out time to pamper yourself at these spas in the Missouri Ozarks.


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.


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.


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.

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.

A Salt Vault at Breathe Health Spa

For those who turn to the healing power of rose quartz, you’ll love the Dry Salt Halotherapy at Breathe Health Spa (1730 E. Republic Road., Springfield). For starters, the room is lined with glowing rose quartz, so go ahead and check off the box for great ambiance. The treatment itself is all about taking a chill pill and focusing on your breath. As you lounge in the salt vault, pure-grade sodium chloride is heated and dispersed into the air through a halogenerator. The dry salt aerosol is said to soothe skin conditions and help your lungs if you struggle with respiratory issues.

Float Away at Theta Wellness Center

To relax and let the stress of the outside world melt away, book a float at Theta Wellness Center (1339 E. Montclair St., Springfield). Thanks to about 800 to 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, you’ll float effortlessly in water that’s warmed to 93.5 degrees. At that temperature, you lose the physical awareness of the water in about 10 minutes. If tight spaces aren’t your thing, then book a float in the pool, but if you want the full sensory-deprivation experience, take a dip in the float cabin. You can also enjoy a cold plunge here. 

Crystal Facial at Skin/Craft

We promise you’ve never had a facial quite like this. A facial at SKIN/CRAFT (500 S. Highland Springs Blvd., Springfield) isn’t just a facial, it’s an energetic facial. It’s all about the healing powers of crystals here, so relax and let that crystal eye mask work its magic.
