We all work and we work hard, Monday through Friday and sometimes on the weekends. Whether it’s with your full time job, kids, your hobbies or passion, or taking care of a loved one – we all need time for ourselves. That’s why I love spas. Whoever created Spas…I bow to you. The idea of being able to go to a spa and get a massage or a facial is heaven to me. That’s why when spa810 invited me to their facility, I had to jump on it.
The last time I had a facial was about 10 years ago. I went to a dermatologist for a few years and then I stopped. I struggled with adult acne, but mostly from bad eating habits. Don’t judge me.
So I walked into spa810, filled out the paperwork, and sat in a quiet waiting room. They had the lights dimmed and calming music playing. Nathan, my facial specialist, came and got me from the quiet room. He took me to the room where I would get my facial and I got into this tube looking pod, that vibrated during my facial. It has an aromatherapy effect that happens throughout the entire facial. It was quite relaxing and therapeutic.
Nathan gave me the 50 minute best facial ever. I typically do not like the thought of facials, only because of the extraction of blackheads part; it can be a bit painful. He started cleansing and massaging my face and all I wanted to do was fall asleep. Then he did a pumpkin enzyme peel on my face and it felt tingly and itchy, but it only lasted for about 2-3 minutes. He wrapped my face in hot towels and massaged my shoulders. Then the extraction started and to my surprise it did not hurt at all. Nathan did such an awesome job of using just the right amount of pressure on my face and took the time to tell me how nice my skin was. *kudos to me*
Overall, I must say that I do plan to return to the spa810 to take advantage of the other services they have. I also want to start getting facials more frequently. They offer monthly memberships that allow you to get 1 or 2 services per month, depending on the level of membership you choose. They offer a wide range of massages, facials, peels, and laser hair removal. I cannot wait to go back and try them all!
