Treat Yourself, JXN
Anytime is the perfect time to gift a loved one (or yourself!) a day of pampering and relaxation.
Check out some of Jackson's indulge-worthy spots, both all year long (because showing yourself some love never goes out of season).
When in doubt, zen it out
In the heart of the city, The Westin Jackson's Soul Spa provides the ultimate spa experience for guests and locals alike. After indulging in a hot stone or CBD-infused massage, take a dip in the hotel's one-of-a-kind saltwater pool or detox your body and mind at the calming sauna.
Located at Jackson's Historic Fairview Inn, nomiSpa is a holistic retreat tucked away by the hotel's tranquil gardens. Their certified staff always has your relaxation in mind, offering everything from Swedish and deep tissue massages to facials and aromatherapy. Looking to prolong your leisurely visit? Their Weekend Getaway Package includes everything you need to recharge for the real world.
Jax-Zen Healing Arts Center in Midtown offers floatation therapy. It's one of the most zen things you can do for mind, body and soul. A 90-minute session allows you a complete and total break from the world outside. It may seem intimidating, but you have to try it to understand it. Jax-Zen also offers massage, Reiki and other creative wellness opportunities.
Bathing in relaxation
One of the best ways to wash away your troubles is taking a steamy bath (complete with candles and a glass of your favorite wine, of course).

At The Shopkeep Co., find a fantastic selection of bathing and relaxation products for men and women, many from local Mississippi vendors. A favorite is Musee Bath, which has been touted by national tastemakers and retailers like Anthropologie, Oprah Winfrey, and The Honest Company. Not only do they make handcrafted, natural bath products in Madison County, Mississippi, they also employ women and people who are currently or have been in difficult situations with the mission of restoring lives and jobs

Living the sweet life
Wrap up your day with a sweet treat (or two!) from Jackson's local confectionaries.

Transport to a Parisian locale in Jackson's backyard at La Brioche Patisserie inside Cultivation Food Hall. Fans of macarons will find fun seasonal flavors alongside petite cakes and breakfast pastries. Grab a mocha or hot chocolate with your sweet stash before grabbing a seat outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and ambiance at The District at Eastover.
