If you’ve been spending quite a bit of time wandering around Melbourne’s shops and sights, or if you’re on your feet all day at work, why not try getting a pedicure to relieve those tired feet? Starting with a therapeutic foot bath followed by an exfoliating rub, your feet will be feeling and looking, brand new in no time at all. You can choose from the standard options like the classic French and gel pedicures or go the full distance with a luxury pedicure. A luxury pedicure will have you enjoying a massage with softened paraffin wax and heated towels or a wrap which warms and soothes your feet as well as softening and hydrating your nails. After this decadent experience, you could try strapping on those open-toed shoes or a pair of thongs and your feet will be the envy of Brighton Beach.
Classic massage experience during a Spa day
Massages are the most popular spa treatment, and one of the best-known types is the Swedish massage. With the aid of lotions or oils, the Swedish massage begins with broad, central strokes, before focussing on specific strokes to heal the trouble points in your body. You could also indulge in a Hot Stone Massage variant, where the masseur uses heated stones as an extension of their hands to relax your body and make a massage feel more sensational.
Many of Melbourne’s spas also offer more exotic varieties of the massage like Shiatsu or Thai massage. Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese and is derived from traditional Chinese massage. Here, a practitioner uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to adjust your body’s physical structure and balance its energy flow. This is a deeply relaxing experience, and regular treatments can reduce your stress levels, and maintain health and wellness.
Thai massage uses a combination of acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures to stretch your body, leaving you thoroughly relaxed and reinvigorated. Thai massages are the massage equivalent of a reboot for your body, and after each session, you’ll be stress-free and feeling ready for anything.
Facials are the second most popular spa treatment, and no wonder – they’re so rejuvenating. All facials have the same basics steps: they cleanse, exfoliate, extract, massage and mask. The main difference is the skin care products used in each facial, with most spas carrying at least two lines, giving you the choice between more active and more natural products. We update our deals on facial treatments in Melbourne every day, so why not give one a try and enjoy smooth and clear skin for less.
Designer waxing is another popular choice on offer in many of Melbourne’s spas, with both men and women looking for the perfect beach body. Waxing is the most efficient way of keeping your body hair under control, with the results lasting for weeks after the session. Like most treatments, men and women can equally enjoy the benefits, which makes it a perfect bonding experience for couples.
With new deals and discounts from Groupon every day you can look forward to enjoying savings on the full array of enticing spa experiences to soothe your body and soul in Melbourne.
