As we kick off 2019, I am reminded of the importance of taking care of ourselves. Moms, if you’re like me, taking care of everyone else becomes a priority too quickly, and we forget about the fact that we need to be a priority, too. At the end of December, I was able to take a much needed afternoon for myself and was treated to a spa and facial at Alisha’s Spa Euphoria in Reading. The newly renovated atmosphere was cheerful and welcoming from the second I walked in. I had never been there before, but Alisha greeted me warmly as soon as I arrived, already making me feel a bit more relaxed.
After filling out the required paperwork, I took a moment to look around. There were refreshments of fruit and vegetables, coffee, and even Christmas cookies available to enjoy. I was then escorted upstairs to receive my massage with Kaylee. The warm massage table and perfect pressure from Kaylee as she worked on relieving the tension and stress from my tightened muscles was like heaven. Soft spa music (that’s what I call it) only added to the serene atmosphere, allowing my stress to melt away in the hands of my masseuse.
Alisha’s Spa Euphoria offers various types of massage to suit your needs. From Therapeutic Massage to relieve everyday muscle tension and stress to LaStone Therapy using hot and cold stones to bring relief to sore muscles, along with Maternity Massage to reduce swelling and soothe muscle tension, Sports Massage to improve athletic performance, and even Youth Massage for infants, toddlers, and all youth, they really do offer the perfect massage options for everyone!
After my relaxing massage, I was given a robe and slippers to slip into before going across the hall for my facial. Alisha asked me if I had any concerns with my skin, and I confessed that I wasn’t very happy with the uneven tones in my face. It seems that after my third pregnancy, there are darker areas that never go away and seem to get worse when I am in the sun. She recommended the Raspberry Enzyme Brightening Facial, which helps to combat hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin while being safe for sensitive skin. Since I had never had a facial before, and don’t use many products at home, I feel this was a great suggestion for my first one. Alisha let me know what she was going to do before she did it, allowing me to ask questions if I had any, and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. The entire experience was relaxing and enjoyable, and I left feeling like I was glowing!
Just like with the massages, Alisha’s Spa Euphoria offers a variety of skin care treatments for whatever you need and whatever type of skin you have. The Skincare Lesson and Corrective Facial are perfect for your tweens and teens to teach them how to best care for their skin type, along with a facial just for them (what teenager wouldn’t love that?!). Whether you are looking to reduce fine lines & wrinkles, improve your skin tone, exfoliate and brighten your skin, or even if you are not sure what you need, just know you need something (like me!), Alisha and her team will be able to recommend the perfect treatment for you.
In addition to massage and skin care services, Alisha’s Spa Euphoria also offers body wraps, hair removal, spray tanning, brow & lash tinting and more to make taking care of yourself an easy priority.
