InnerRewards.com and Escape-to-Shape announced an exciting new partnership featuring special offers and reduced prices for women's total wellness spa and retreat getaways. These trips allow women to rebalance and achieve optimal health without breaking the bank. Reducing stress has never been more important, and friendships, relaxing getaways, and mind-body fitness helps people stay healthy, well, and balanced during the stresses of these turbulent times.
These exclusive budget-friendly and guilt-free getaways combine comfort, culture, healthy fitness, yoga, community activities such as salsa and tribal dancing at unique locations around the world. Healthy gourmet meals are prepared by private chefs in these exotic and beautiful spa settings. Women of all ages can lose weight, get in shape, and meet others for all-important camaraderie.

Escape-to-Shape takes all the stress out of creating an all-inclusive getaway for a week. Simply show up and take advantage of a guilt-free girlfriend getaway that is good for the body and soul. According to Dr. Janet Taylor, professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, "Friends are the ultimate de-stressors. Researchers haven't figured out exactly how, but friends revive your immune system. Even though you may see or talk to them frequently, planning a trip reinvigorates your relationships and takes you to a place to rejuvenate together and share the experience."
