Stress doesn’t belong within Calm Moments Spa’s walls. Here, aestheticians, technicians, and therapists bring clients to states of relaxation with a variety of soothing treatments. The massage therapists incorporate flowing Swedish strokes or focused, deep-tissue pressure as they knead away at knotted muscles, even using aromatherapy oils or hot stones to accentuate the therapeutic benefits and put minds at ease. To take years off the skin’s appearance, the aestheticians perform age-defying facials that utilize acid peels and oxygen masks. For a more drastic and technological approach, they also employ microdermabrasion wands and high-frequency radio waves to quell blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars.
Divine Skin Care's licensed aesthetician, Debby Farley, has 30 years of industry experience, which she calls upon when administering chemical peels, facials, and skincare treatments that combat everything from acne to signs of aging. Facials bolster clients' complexions with nourishing blends of vitamins and hydrating treatments, and microdermabrasion treatments help stimulate collagen production and reduce wrinkles.

Stowe's idyllic scenery is defined by its prime location between the Green Mountains and Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak at 4,395 feet. With spring and summer fast approaching, the mountain resort transitions from skiing to golfing season. Named one of the Best Courses You Can Play by Golfweek, Stowe Mountain Golf Club snakes around the foot of Mount Mansfield. Several activities begin in early summer. Starting in mid-June, the Stowe gondola climbs to the peak of Mount Mansfield, where one finds exquisite views of the surrounding Green Mountains. Families can fly down the side of the mountain on the Stowe Alpine Slide, which descends 2,300 feet on Spruce Peak. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
