This past weekend, bands national and international descended upon Forest Park’s Central Field. After two full days in the sun, partaking of the Schlafly and Budweiser, hovering around the Nosh Pit and singing along with favorite bands, you may be feeling  like it’s time for a detox. We’ve got you covered. Read on for our expert list on where to recover after a weekend of festival fun.

1/ Re-adjust
After a weekend of whiplash dancing to Grouplove and Arctic Monkeys, your spine might feel a little out of whack. We suggest a realignment from a chiropractor like InMotion Health Center in Clayton  or St. Louis Spine & Health in Creve Coeur.

2/ Re-fresh
Even if you only swayed to the music all weekend, chances are you did quite a bit of walking and perspiring. Kristen Linares at 13th & Washington offers scalp treatments and blow-outs to refresh and replenish your hair after a hot day.

3/Re-energize
Did you know Soutown Yoga offers a yoga hour every day for only $7? ALIVErs like to stop by in the evening when we need a pick-me-up. Find more information on their schedule.

4/Re-new
If you’re feeling a little dull, Ginger Bay Salon & Spa is a great place for a renewing facial or relaxing massage. With locations in Town & Country and Kirkwood, they are one of our favorite places to stop in locally when we’re craving VIP treatment.

5/Re-vive
Chances are you found yourself in the Nosh Pit at LouFest more than once this weekend. The food was delicious, but if you’re craving a healthier option try a local restaurant that specializes in nourishing eats like Lulu’s Local Eatery or Athlete Eats.
