Top 12 Black American-Owned Spas to Fix Your Broken Heart on Valentine’s Day

Visit one of the best black-owned spas for Valentine’s Day and mend your broken heart by pampering yourself. Spas offer a wide range of amenities, but there’s something special about visiting a black-owned spa. The services and amenities on this list are just as diverse as the women who run these spas.

With backgrounds ranging from the military to school in Paris, the story behind each spa is inspiring and uplifting in its own way. The passion they each have for their craft, whether it’s massage, holistic healing, working as a beautician, or caring for black skin, there’s one thing each of these owners has in common. .

The one thing all of these women have in common is their insistence and focus on the importance of self-care. Taking care of yourself, even if you’re not heartbroken, can be something people often forget to do. Hot tubs make it easy. Something as simple as running a bath to soak your bones. Or, a good deep tissue foot massage would do the trick.

Day passes and monthly memberships are growing in popularity with black-owned spas for Valentine’s Day. You can pay to use spa amenities daily or monthly. This usually includes the sauna and baths, as well as the use of bathrobes and slippers. But, some of the black-owned spas listed below will go above and beyond to take care of your broken heart this Valentine’s Day. Think salt rooms and chromotherapy!
