With smart phones and tablet computers always at hand, most of us have forgotten how to relax and disconnect. Orange County day spas understand this problem and offer packages designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. Combining their best and most popular services, a day spa package is a way to maximize your time and money. The following day spas offer a range of services that can recharge the batteries, but leave the gadgets at home. As Lee Gollnick of Burke Williams Day Spa in Orange, California, points out, the goal of a day spa is getting away from it all.
