Monday, August 15 is National Relaxation Day but the CasaBlanca Resort and Spa feels that their guests deserve an entire week of relaxation. To help them achieve that they’re offering a 10 percent discount on one spa treatment and a 20 percent discount for two or more treatments for the entire week.

The CasaBlanca spa invites patrons to “Toss the Technology” and indulge in a variety of treatments to relax the mind, body and spirit. From massage to pedicures, you can have one treatment or several that are guaranteed to ease the domination of social media and around the clock workloads that create stress.

Your spa experience will begin the moment you walk in the door. Per the instructional sign on the door, now is the time to turn your cell phone off.

The lobby is minimally but beautifully designed with muted colors and wood accents. Behind the front desk are smiling receptionists waiting to check you in, answer any questions you may have and provide you with your plush robe and slippers along with your locker key.

After you’ve changed in their very well-maintained locker room you can visit the relaxation room while you wait for your “therapist” to come get you. With soft music playing in the background, staff voices kept soft and low and no electronics you’re already beginning to relax.

When your aesthetician, massage therapist, stylist or any one of the other men and women who provide you with services comes to get you, you’re going to instantly feel pampered. The staff is very attentive and respectful.

The treatment rooms are kept dimly lit with soft music playing overhead. Staff gives you a minute or two to prepare yourself comfortably in the room. Looking around, you’ll find everything picture perfect. The room is kept clean, with a soft and pleasant aroma in the air. Your therapist will ask you a few questions before they begin so they may cater the service to your very specific needs while still giving you the full experience of the massage, facial, pedicure or other treatment.

Jenny Munoz is one of the massage therapists. Her demeanor is soft and quiet and she’s very warm and welcoming. As you’re lying there with your eyes closed her massage is fluid and smooth; her position is constantly changing but her movement around you and the massage table is nearly imperceptible. She is silent in her work and there is absolutely nothing to distract you from the palpable sense of your stress simply melting away.

The CasaBlanca’s Spa and Salon focuses on natural and organic healing and uses products by several top-of-the-line products from Hempz, Eminence, Fiji and Farmhouse Fresh.

If your choice of treatment is a facial, Carol Love, licensed aesthetician, is one of the women you may encounter. Love is very passionate about her work, loves her clients and is knowledgeable about the products she uses. During the process, Love will answer your questions and very easily chat with you if you’d like but silence is golden when she’s giving you a neck, shoulder, hand and arm massage; silence may be golden but her massage is nothing short of heavenly.

“The Spa & Salon at CasaBlanca is truly a hidden treasure here in Mesquite,” said Julia Abouzeid, director of operations. “We’re turning off the technology and offering guests the experience of ultimate relaxation at our renowned, full-service spa, especially as summer draws to an end and the start of the new school season is quickly approaching.”

Guests can indulge in any number of treatments celebrating National Relation Day. The signature treatment is the CasaBlanca Trio, which is 100 minutes of pure relaxation for $160. This treatment includes a body scrub and hydrating wrap, followed by a soothing massage using top-of-the-line Pure Fiji products.

In addition to the Signature Treatment, the Spa & Salon at CasaBlanca features a variety of relaxing massages from 50 to 80 minutes.

After you’ve been thoroughly pampered and you are relaxed and feeling good there’s no need to rush off. Take your time and visit the eucalyptus steam room or relax outdoors in the shade, in the sun by the private pool, or just chill in the air-conditioned comfort of the relaxation room; nobody is trying to undo all the good that has been done to you so far. You just keep that locker shut tight with your cellphone, tablet or laptop tucked safely out of sight, out of mind. The CasaBlanca Spa personnel want you to continue to let that stress melt away all day long.

The National Relaxation Day discount applies for treatments occurring on the same day for one guest. Spa hours are 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily.
