Those looking for adventurous things to do in Indianapolis won’t be disappointed: zip lines! Paintball! Indy car racing! But for those who find themselves lacking the… ahem… drive, to breeze through town at high speeds, there’s another option. Enter: the Indianapolis spa scene. From volcanic stone massages to full-day pamper packages that include champagne, spas in Indiana offer myriad ways in which to unwind between adventures or simply slip away for some much-needed “me” time.1. Evan Todd Spa & SalonDowntownAs an Aveda spa and salon, Evan Todd Spa’s facials and body treatments use plant-based botanical ingredients for an eco-friendly pampering experience. For a truly indulgent escape, the Caribbean therapy treatment transports spa-goers to the islands with a full-body exfoliation, detoxifying seaweed masque, and hydrating mango and cocoa butter.2. Mojo Day SpaChatard - Forest HillsMojo’s signature facials are customized to target each person’s specific skin concerns, whether it’s an oxy treatment to plump and hydrate skin or a diamond-tipped resurfacing treatment. Add a little “extra mojo flow” to any facial with aromatherapy, sunless bronzing, or paraffin wax. Paragraph3. Rejuve Aveda Salon and Spa West Carmel MarketplaceRejuve does it all: haircuts, color, skincare. But nail care treatments are especially noteworthy, as they focus as much on the health of nails as they do on making them look beautiful. Indulge in a manicure or pedicure with the signature Aveda hand and foot relief treatment, or indulge in a spa package for a day of pampering, complete with lunch and champagne.4. Transformations Salon and SpaSouth PerrySometimes, the best things come in unassuming packages. Such is the case with Transformations Salon and Spa: clients who look past the strip mall location find a clean, relaxing salon where stylists remember regulars by name and treat waiting guests to coffee, water, and even fresh-baked cookies, on occasion. As for the service menu, the experts here handle it all, from haircuts to massages to Hydradermie facials.5. Urban Euphoria Salon SpaGreenwood“No Boys Allowed” is certainly not a mantra you’ll hear at Urban Euphoria. The salon describes its “gender-neutral” environment as “rustic barn chic” (read: no frills), meaning everyone can feel right at home when dropping in for a facial, massage, detoxifying mud therapy treatment, or cocoa body scrub. In the name of equal opportunity, they even offer Brazilian waxes for dudes.6. La Beaute Spa Du JourNorth Augusta“No Boys Allowed” is certainly not a mantra you’ll hear at Urban Euphoria.

Rose body wraps, men’s manicures, seaweed facials, and airbrush makeup and tanning for brides and bridesmaids are just a few of the treatments offered.8. The Woodhouse Day SpaCarmelWhether you’ve booked a facial, massage, or other body treatment, each relaxation journey at The Woodhouse begins the same way. Guests prepare for their service by donning a fluffy robe and slippers, cozying up next to a roaring fire, and sipping a cup of warm tea. The staff, meanwhile, use organic products during services that range from a volcanic stone massage to bamboo body scrubs and a signature manicure that includes micro-algae masks and paraffin.9. Lotus Spa and NailsBroad RippleSkin and nails both get the royal treatment at Lotus. Facials are tailored to target problem areas, such as dullness, acne scars, or dry skin, and there’s even a gentleman’s facial designed to help soothe razor burn. Nail services, meanwhile, feel extra indulgent with the addition of touches like chocolate-scented hand creams, warm towel wraps, and hot rocks. 10. Chateau Bijou Salon and SpaNoblesvilleA visit to Chateau Bijou might feel like a trip to the French countryside. Pampering spa treatments and a recently-renovated historic building with exposed brick walls, wood beams, and metal railings certainly help. And, for those who want to continue the experience at home, the spa offers a full line of Jan Marini skin care products for purchase.
