Locations in this article:  Austin, TX

Ever gotten a massage only to tense up again as soon as you walk outside? Rather than just getting a treatment and leaving, make it a weekend getaway—especially with Mother’s Day just around the corner.

Spas have always been big business, but destination spas are growing fast. A new study from the Global Wellness Tourism Congress found that wellness tourism, worth more than $400 billion, is expected to grow 9.9 percent a year over the next five years, nearly twice the pace of global tourism. So, join the trend and treat mom to these new spa treatments this spring.
