When I first moved to West Lafayette, I never thought that the area would provide an oasis of self-care experiences, but I was pleasantly surprised. You might come to greater Lafayette for a college visit or a sporting event, but you should stay for the perfect self-care day! Here are 5 local spots that will give you the perfect wellness experience:

Society Yoga

In recent years, hot yoga has been the new workout fad. What I thought was going to be a hot trend that passed has stayed for a bit now. Being a self-proclaimed yogi, I had high expectations for this class, and were my expectations met! I took the gentle yoga class, and the entire experience was relaxing and instructional. Society offers over 20 classes a week with a variety of class styles. Whether you are a beginner or a pro, Society will cater to your needs and leave you restored for the day.

Interwaves Massage Therapy

What better way to partake in wellness than a massage? Interwaves massage therapy provides a homey comfortable atmosphere and a variety of different massage styles ranging from deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, Swedish, and more. The quaint cottage-style building provided the Indiana charm, and the massage offered deep relaxation. With massage lengths ranging from 45 minutes to 2 hours, you can truly pick a service that works for what you want to achieve. Whether it’s relaxation or pain relief, they are more than happy to accommodate.

Calm Waters Float Therapy

If you’re feeling brave, go try a floating experience at Calm Waters Float therapy. If you are not familiar, flotation therapy takes place in a sensory deprivation tank filled with an intense salt solution that offers a zero-gravity experience where you can recover and reset. I would recommend this for the bold but not the motion-sick type! I was left rejuvenated and will definitely be going back.

Honey Skin Social

If you are looking for a one-stop beauty stop, this is the place for you! Among the services it offers are facials, waxing, and makeup. I received a facial from Lacey and it provided relaxation and left my face clear and glowing.
