The Best Durham Spots for a Self-Care Day

(The Triangle Trend) — All of us deserve pampering from time to time. But very few of us actually get the self-care our bodies and minds so desperately crave for one of two reasons. We’re either broke and don’t feel like doing any treatments ourselves or we have a bit of extra cash and don’t know the spots worth spending it at. On your next day off, though (Saturday perhaps?), I dare you to treat yourself like the self-care queen or king you are. Take advantage of one of the many local spots where professionals offer treatments ranging from massages and acupuncture to physical therapy and yoga.
