Detroit is a busy city! We love the excitement, but sometimes we have to get away from the hustle and bustle by taking a day…or even an hour, to enjoy a luxurious spa experience. Spa-ing is one of my favorite hobbies and I like to try them all (and often if I can!). Luckily, Detroit has plenty of options. Read on to find out about some of the best spas in the metro area.
D. Tour Spa: With 13,000 square feet of pure spa indulgence, you can be sure that D. Tour has a variety of options in spa treatment, one of which will be exactly what you are looking for! Located in MotorCity Casino and Hotel, choose from their dedicated lounges for thermal whirlpools, large steam rooms, dry saunas and rain showers. The spa also offers a number of specialized massages and body treatments which can offer detoxification, revitalization and a great way to get you back on your feet.
Immerse Spa: Located in the city’s MGM Grand Hotel, this resort style spa includes a Technogym fitness zone and indoor infinity edge pool which contains exotic botanicals and customized aromatherapy treatments. Their spa services give new meaning to the words ‘massage therapy’ including guided relaxation, body scrubs and a Japanese tea ceremony. Salon services are available as well.
FACE: FACE is located in Bingham Farms and has a great vibe from the moment you walk in. Holly has made sure that every detail down to the linens is perfect and it shows. She has a killer team across the board from the face side to the wellness side. Highly trusted and recommended from personal experience. I have tried services from almost all categories they offer and the end product is worth it 100%.
Woodhouse Day Spa: Guests know they are in for a treat when they enter the Woodhouse Spa. It all starts with a luxurious robe and a glass or wine. Clients can then choose from a variety of spa services including skin care, waxing, sleep treatments, massages, body, foot and hand treatments. Few can resist their Volcanic Stone Massage.
Rivage Day Spa: Rivage is an oasis in Birmingham surrounded by shopping and fun. This haven is one of our favorite traditional day spas with a great relaxation area fit for a day with the girls or a relaxing solo getaway. I highly recommend the detox wrap service. I keep going back for more and feel great after.
Meta Physica Wellness: Meta Physica’s services include massages for couples, deep tissue, prenatal and more; full-spectrum infrared saunas with different programs tailored to clients’ needs, such as detoxification, weight loss and pain relief; and community acupuncture, which provides a more affordable option for people seeking treatment. This haven is in the middle of the city in Corktown and is a must for the spa-goers in the city.
The Schvitz: Open to members and guests since 1930, The Schvitz is Detroit’s original urban health club and the only historic bath house left in the city. A storied landmark and cultural institution for nearly 100 years, this old-world oasis still offers the very best in ancient heat therapies and holistic healing. Great food and camaraderie will complete your restorative stay. Come unwind, back in time. Ladies only, Coed, and Mens only days and times are available - so check the site for the schedule.

Tamara offers the very best of cutting edge treatments and offers services exclusively for teens, mothers-to-be, brides to be and couples. Also available are massages, facials, waxing, manicures and permanent makeup.
Detroit Aesthetics Company: Located in Plymouth, this med spa is dedicated to face, body, and wellness - beauty from the inside out. You are in the best hands with Kyle and his team. I love the range of services provided from the traditional spa side to the med side with all the lasers and cutting edge treatments.
Om Spa: Heavily influenced by the world of Eastern Healing, Om Spa goes beyond just offering a variety of massage and facial treatments. It’s energy healing and calming services are also sure to prepare your inner self for anything the world throws its way. They also offer medical spa treatments including Botox, microdermabrasion, nonsurgical facelifts and more.
Skintuition: I just visited this unique and cutting edge spa in Rochester last week and loved it. The attention to detail and modern facilities are second to none and they offer a variety of face and body services. We highly recommend the dermaplaning and hydrafacial treatments.
Margot European Day Spa: This luxury spa can be a treat for those who want to splurge in a decadent day of indulgence. Body wraps, facial treatments, waxing and hydrotherapy are also on the menu as are private parties, medical treatments and oncology services. The spa also hosts events outside of their location, designed to offer clients continued education on how to incorporate the pampering experience beyond the spa and into their homes.
