For Frill-Free Relaxation: Chung Dam Spa & Fitness

Though its strip-mall location is short on charm, this cult-favorite Korean spa is worthy of a visit thanks to its lineup of body scrubs, massages (they’ll tiptoe on your back by request) and reflexology, all of which ring in under $100. Services come with a pass for the spa’s facilities, which include herbal steam baths, a charcoal room and a dry sauna. Pro tip: Prepare to strip down; most guests unwind in the buff. 41 Cheltenham Avenue, Cheltenham

For Groups: Rizzieri Salon & Spa

With five pedicure tubs, an oversize drying station, and a polish wall with hundreds of hues, head here for manis en masse. And that should only be your first stop — as there are 10-plus treatment rooms for hydrating wraps, resurfacing facials and plant peels. Have one guest schedule your party’s appointments, and a coordinator will email a breakdown of everyone’s itinerary. 400 Route 38, Suite 1440, Moorestown

For Tranquility Plus Fitness: The Logan Spa

The extensive water-inspired spa menu at this one-year-old spot is in itself notable, but what catapults the Logan Hotel’s spa past others is its distraction-free, Jetsons-esque atmosphere. Carve out time to use the spa’s complimentary facilities: a dimly lit lap pool and a tricked-out fitness center. 1 Logan Square, Logan Circle

For Maximum Coziness: David Witchell

Upstairs, this Newtown beauty mecca is a mini-city of makeup counter, gift shop and hair salon. Downstairs, though, it’s a cabin-like oasis where you can hunker down for hyper-specific services (ear candling to ward off seasonal allergies) and comprehensive body treatments (a detoxifying algae wrap). Cap your day with Body Bronzing — an hour-long exfoliation paired with a faux tan — to emerge spring-ready. Visit Witchell’s recently opened Peddler’s Village location for an equally Zen experience. 25 South State Street, Newtown, and 56 Peddler’s Village, 2400 Street Road, New Hope

For Holistic Healing: Terme Di Aroma

This homey sanctuary balances trendier technology (collagen facials) with ancient practices (a traditional Thai massage). Turn to Terme’s staffers to help you stack a series of treatments for a custom day of detox. Must-try: aromatherapy, their signature, which boosts the potency of their services and leaves you energetic. 32 North 3rd Street, Old City
