Yesterday I was lucky enough to get to check out Healthy Being Wellness Center.

Healthy Being hosted a blogger preview party to give us bloggers a chance to see what they have in store for Valentine’s Day!

Healthy Being is a full service, holistic and natural healing center with an upscale, Zen-inspired spa flair. They offer many awesome treatments and services.

Melissa, the owner, had a nice spread of goodies laid out for us to enjoy while we waited between treatments.

Look at all the delicious-sounding treatment specials they have cooked up for Valentine’s Day!

Most of them somehow involve chocolate, and the scent of chocolate and peppermint was in the air when I arrived at the spa. My friend Raffi of Running Betty was getting a chocolate/peppermint infused paraffin wax treatment on her hands when I arrived.

My friend Jenny of MetamorFIT was getting ear seeds applied!

I had never heard of ear seeds before, but basically it is an acupressure technique where small seeds are applied with adhesive tape to the ear to apply pressure to specific points to alleviate pain and other conditions throughout the body. Jenny was faking that scared look above! It’s not painful or anything. You can periodically press on the seeds to get more acupressure activation. They last until the tape falls off.

Jenny got several treatments, including the hot stone foot massage…

I volunteered at Mack’s school yesterday so I arrived to the spa day late and only had time for one treatment, so I decided to get the paraffin wax hand treatment as well. This is the spa manager Kristina who was so sweet and answered all of our questions:

I totally felt like I was cheating on my day to have twenty minutes to just sit and relax.

It’s hard to multi-task when you are wearing wax mittens.

One of the most interesting things that Healthy Being offers which I know very little about is lymphatic therapy.

My Fascinating Life Caroline Calcote-21

They gave us a coupon for one FREE lymphatic health assessment (a $150 value) to use through the end of February.

If anyone would like to use this coupon for an assessment, please let me know and I’d be happy to pass it along.

It was great to get to hang out with my blogger friends in such a lovely atmosphere.

The nice folks at Healthy Being also gave each of us a gift certificate to give away!

If you would like to win this gift certificate, please leave a comment letting me know that you think chocolate infused anything is a good idea. I’ll have Mack pick a winner this weekend.

[Update: This contest is now closed and the winner has been notified. Congratulations Valarie!]

The staff of Healthy Being was so welcoming to all of us crazy bloggers. Thank you so much to Melissa and her crew for having us!
