Spa Review: Bring The Spa To Your Home With SWA Wellness
When I heard about this new spa service called Swa Wellness that claimed to give you the closest thing to a spa experience in your own home, I was quite eager to try it out. Honestly I wondered how close would they be able to get to recreating a spa experience for me and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
My appointment was at 6:00 pm last Wednesday, but the masseuse showed up 15 minutes early as they take time to set up. When I opened the door, I was shocked to see 3 people standing outside my door, each holding a big bag and one of them was carrying a foldable massage table. I let them set up while I got ready for my appointment and was pleased to see when I entered the room that the massage bed was laid out and covered with clean soft towels. The room smelt lovely and that’s when I noticed that there was a diffuser in the corner with lavender oil to make the room feel like a spa. In addition to this, there was a sound dock plugged that played soothing music, just like you would hear at a spa. The masseuse Aneth, offered me disposable linen to change into, so that the oil would not get in my clothes.
After I changed and lay down, the massage started. I had picked the re-energizing massage for which she would use eucalyptus oil. Aneth was well trained and the massage was excellent and lasted an entire hour. I dozed through most of the massage as my muscles relaxed. After the massage was over, the masseuse offered me a disposable robe, as well as disposable chappals so that the floor would not be covered in oil. To top it all, she kindly offered me some tea as well. I was curious to see how she would serve me tea, so I agreed. Out from one of the bags came an electric kettle, a packaged bottle of water, a tray, a cup, a spoon and 3 kinds of tea- Ginger, Lemon and Green. I have to say I was impressed and this is definitely something I could get used to.
