Enjoying Your Own Home Spa
A nice session at the spa is the perfect idea of a relaxing day for many, but making the trip to the mall or the salon may be a bit of a bother—not to mention that professional spa treatments usually cost an arm and a leg.
The good news is that you can enjoy the soothing and comforting experience of a spa right in the convenience of your own home. You can easily book a home service massage or various treatments such as a manicure, pedicure or foot spa. These outcall services are usually cheaper than those offered in commercial establishments.
All that’s left for you to do is to spruce up your living space to recreate the distinctive spa ambiance that you desire. It does not cost much and all it takes is some imagination and resourcefulness. Here are some ideas and tips on how to achieve the perfect spa atmosphere at home as you enjoy your personalized wellness treatments:
Make sure the lighting is conducive to rest and relaxation.
The best way to do this is to light some nice candles or use dimmed lamps. You can also hang heavy curtains on the windows to block out sunlight.
Bring in a piece of nature by decorating the space with plants and flowers.
These not only help beautify the surroundings, but also help improve your health and well-being by improving oxygen levels in the air.
Scent plays a big part in creating a relaxing atmosphere.
Essential oils are all the rage these days, and you can use a few drops of your favorite scent in a candle burner or an electric diffuser. Classic scents for relaxation include lavender, eucalyptus, mint or chamomile.
If you are using a portable massage bed, choose a perfect spot that is spacious enough and free from clutter.
Otherwise, you can have your massage on your bed or sofa. Just make sure to prepare it and make it more comfortable by laying fresh sheets or large towels.
Put on appropriate music.
There are a lot of available collections of relaxing sounds and spa music on the Internet that you can download. You can also go with soothing nature sounds that mimic the chirping of birds or gurgling water.
You are now all set to enjoy a relaxing spa experience right within the privacy, comfort and convenience of your own home!
