It can be luxurious treatments that uncoil our tangled muscles and nudge our inner perfection closer to the surface. But sometimes it can be as simple as a reminder that we're more than merely inhabitants of the planet - we're part of it - and we have a responsibility to live up to our potential.

Green Science SpaGreen Science SpaSte. Anne's is one of those spas for me. From their full-immersion mud-baths to their hydrotherapy treatments, each visit is a reminder of my connection to this wonderful and glorious earth. I usually arrive stressed and full of my own busyness, but I always leave a kinder, gentler version of myself.

"The first mud bath I had made me realize I was part of the planet as opposed to someone just standing on top of it," says Jim Corcoran, owner and general manager. "I realized when I was enveloped in the mud that I was being hugged by the planet, absorbed into it."

I have a not-so-secret addiction to beauty treatments, but connecting with others, myself and the planet it real reason I visit the spa.
