Spa Day!

Every once in a while, it’s nice to treat ourselves to a relaxing body massage in order to let some of the tension go. After all, you’ve worked hard for months on end and it doesn’t matter whether you’re at home or at work. Stress is always there. And some studies show that the most common culprit in illnesses we contract is due to stress. Not surprising considering that we live in a fast paced world where everything needs to be completed in a snap.

So for this special treat, I decided to take up my good friend and beauty blogger, Alice’s, invitation to try out this hot new spa which happens to be near me. Jasmine’s Therapeutic Spa, is equipped with the most basic commodities a spa requires and is specially thought of to bring a relaxing feeling for us hardworkers. With the team ready to serve tea, it’s a wonderful experience indeed.

The masseuse, being specially screened and trained in some of the most expensive spas in the metro, pride themselves with years of experience and a license to boot! So you know you are in good and professional hands.

My only take in this experience is that the visit could have been made more memorable with wider tea options. Perhaps Lavander or Chamomile to induce relaxation before or after the massage sessions. Light snacks as well such as small sandwiches would definitely make the visit well worth it!

All in all, the visit is worth the hour’s travel and the weeks of tension released. Would I go back? Definitely! Maybe for a ventusa session next time. 🙂

Relaxing Beauty Breaks with Light Pondering on Weekends

Stress is beauty’s number one enemy.  Dry skin, wrinkles, acne break outs and haggard looking features result from prolonged stay in highly stressful environments.  People who get exposed to certain levels of stress need to give themselves a break to care for their health.  These breaks can also provide them with beauty benefits because a little rest and recreation can help restore one’s glow. One of my favorite beauty breaks is a trip to the spa for a nice scrub and relaxing massage.  Aside from enjoying the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of the spa, it also gives me time to ponder on trivial concerns like how to make my computer faster or what to do for my next home improvement project.  At the end of the session, I come out with a soft and smooth skin, relaxed body and fresh ideas.
