These Are The Best Ways To Recover and Recuperate from SXSW


SXSW is still happening but we’re already thinking about our recovery. Whether you did 10 days of activities or even just one, these ways to refresh and relax are definitely a good idea.

Here are the best ways to recover and recuperate from SXSW!

Get a Drip

Your Nurse Friend goes beyond the clinic, providing expert support and guidance. The company is lead by Tania Yousaf, a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner who specializes in family practice, women’s health, weight loss, and fertility. With over a decade of experience, she is passionate about educating and empowering patients to feel confident and in control of their own health journey. They offer a variety of drips via a mobile IV bar and mobile vitamin bar, as well as fertility care and weight loss plans. Learn more here.

Hit the Spa

If you’re looking for the ultimate relaxation experience, we suggest the spa at Fairmont Austin. Enjoy a serene space to sit a spell and listen to your body while surrounded by the spirited energy of downtown Austin. With nine treatment rooms including two VIP couples suites and lavishly appointed solariums, you’ll be treated to floor to ceiling views of the Austin skyline. Each solarium showcases a saline soaking pool, eucalyptus steam grotto, and European dry heat sauna.

Fairmont Spa Austin offers a variety of massages and facials, including treatments utilizing Doctor Babor and Biologique Recherche products. They’re actually one of the only Texas spas that feature the latter!

No matter what service you choose, we recommend sticking around after your treatment to enjoy a soak in their gorgeous tub overlooking the Austin skyline. If interested, you can also purchase a day pass to use the Fairmont’s rooftop pool and hot tub.
