Beauty Scoop: January 2010

We sometimes contemplate moving overseas just to partake in culturally condoned sleep traditions suc

The new nidra sleep treatment at  Vida Spa begins with a warm cup of tea in the cozy, fireside relaxation room, where guests have been known to nod off. After a soothing aromatherapy massage and press-and-release tension relief on the scalp, temple, neck and shoulders, you’ll be sent home with newfound Zen. Each guest receives a personalized “sleep prescription” with recommendations on diet and tips for falling asleep, as well as soothing lavender bath salts and a rice-filled eye mask. $130/hour. South Lake Union, Pan Pacific Hotel, 2200 Westlake Ave.; 206.264.8432;
At Source Salon & Spa, visitors are encouraged to postpone the harsh realities of the real world by booking a nap Time/All over session following their spa treatment. After hearing clients say, “I wish I could stay here” a few hundred times, owners Tia Cochran and Michelle Vierra started offering add-on naps to treatments last year. Snuggle into your robe right in the treatment room ($15 for 15 minutes), or head down the hall to the soothing quiet room—complete with its own couch and crisp linens—where you can nap at no extra charge until someone else insists it’s her turn for some z’s. Ballard, 5400 Leary Way NW; 206.789.4500;
