The Day Spa

025. Get a professional massage [more info]
038. Visit a day spa [more info]

My husband’s family bought me a voucher for a hot stone massage from a day spa in the Yarra Valley for Christmas and I only got around to using it recently. From a Mission101 perspective, this was good for two reasons:

1. I had never been to a day spa before and it was on my list
2. I also made the goal of having a professional massage

On a personal note, I was thrilled because the relaxation part of this was perfect! (so it wasn’t obviously just goal-related glee :P).

Hot stone massage is exactly how it sounds… warm smooth stones (palm-sized) are dipped in essential oils and rubbed on your skin, it was brilliant and the¬†masseuse did a wonderful job (she was fantastic!). I would gladly do this again, so relaxing and afterwards I got to have a solo shower – ie, no toddlers! – at the resort… bliss!

038. Visit a day spa

21 01 2010

When will I have achieved this goal? When I have visited a day spa and blogged about my experiences. 

Why did I choose this goal? Relaxation is a very important part of my life, and something I don’t do enough. Relaxing at a day spa will be a perfect antedote to those mid-year work stresses that always seem to pop up.
