I haven’t been that keen on spa treatments, since a terrible facial at a spa in Vietnam where they pulled my hair and squeezed my pimples. No joke. “Very pretty, but LOTS of spots”, the beautician exclaimed as she dug her fingers into my face.
So I was a teeny bit apprehensive about going to visit the new Spring Day Spa that has just opened on the corner Jessie and Tory Street in Welington Central. But I mean, a treat is a treat so off I went.
And let me tell you – I am now forever converted.
The moment I walked into Spring I felt completely relaxed. The interior is drop dead gorgeous – all pale distressed wood and creamy whites with beautiful bright pops of colour. It actually does feel like you’re suddenly in the middle of a beautiful spring day. It’s fresh and vibrant and quite modern – with iPods and iPads available so you can listen to music or check your email during your treatment. How cool is that?!
My friend and I had both had particularly stressful days at work (that’s right – I do actually have a day job! It’s not all coffee and massages for me!), so both opted for the 60 minute Spring Signature Pod Massage with an Eyes and Shine (lol) add on. The brochure told me that that the Pod Massage would leave me “feeling like you are floating on a cloud” and it really, truly did.
My masseuse was super professional and so skilled! And she didn’t mind me bossing her about a little (as I am known to do on occasion). 60 minutes of bliss followed by a de-puffing and oxygenating eye mask left me feeling like a languid jelly woman with no muscles or bones – and the brightest little peepers in the world!
After your luxurious treatment, may I recommend toddling your jelly body on down to Prefab for a coffee or a spot of lunch. Imagine that as your Saturday morning! Ka pai!
Spring Day Spa is open 7 days from 9am-7pm (Mon-Sat) and 10am-6pm on Sunday.
