Best Day Spas In Brisbane

With wellness, selfcare, “me time” and Mumcations being all the current buzzwords, there has never been a better time to check out the best day spa experiences in Brisbane.

Here is a sample of some of our favourite day spa treatments you can get in Brisbane city and also in the more outer suburbs of Brisbane.

Coffee Day Spa Package At Ripple

One for the coffee lovers, this day spa package has everything those addicted to the wicked brew will love.

Originally inspired by Ripple’s owner Ali as she was waiting to pick up her coffee at Merlo Coffee in Brisbane, this day spa package uses products infused with freshly ground coffee.

It starts with a full body exfoliation using a coffee body scrub, that gently removes old skin cells with the rough ground coffee in a nourishing cream base. Then a full body massage with coffee infused oils and finishing with a coffee facial.  Available all Brisbane City and suburbs as Ripple is a mobile day spa service and will come out to you, how handy is that!

Kahuna Hawaiian Style Massage

This is another of our favourite day spa treatments in Brisbane. A very different style of massage, this uses much more sweeping strokes, with both sides of the body being massaged at the same time.
 
Kahuna therapists often use coconut oil as the base oil for the massage, and have a very holistic or spiritual basis to the massage. So they will tap into the energy sources of the client and really feel into the massage, very different to more Western Style massages that tend to be more clinical and approach the massage purely on a muscular basis.
 
Kahuna massage therapists see their massage table as an alter, and will often place crystals, flowers, cards and other objects under the table to help with the energy of the massage. Sounds very hippy doesn’t it?
 
But don’t be fooled, professional Kahuna massage therapists are more than just holistic. They are trained in deep tissue and relaxation massage styles, parts of the body, anatomy and physiology and muscular systems. In Brisbane there are a few kahuna therapists we really like.
 
 
But there are a lot of good kahuna therapists in Australia, not just in Brisbane. Try to look for one that has gone to at least a Level 5 of training as this will ensure a higher quality of massage and knowledge.

Prental Day Spa Treatments

When you are pregnant, a little bit of pampering goes a long way! There are a wide range of prenatal day spa treatments in Brisbane to choose from.

If you are in your first trimester, most massage therapists will suggest you skip the deep tissue massage and instead have a beauty treatment. The reason is that pregnancy massage therapists mostly will prefer to wait after the first trimester until the pregnancy is settled to start massaging.

However there is no need for you miss out! If you are pregnant you can still have facials, manicures and pedicures. Anything that raises your temperature like saunas and hot stone massage or heated body wraps are probably not a good idea. But you can definitely get your nails done or perhaps a gentle facial.

Try to skip the more aggressive cleansing facials that use a harsher exfoliation or micro-dermabrasion, and instead go for a facial that is more hydrating and nourishing. Collagen facials are a good alternative, or some day spas in Brisbane use algae or even gold facials can be popular.

After your first trimester however, you can have as many pregnancy massages as you would, even up until the day of the birth. Just make sure you book in with a qualified prenatal massage therapist, as there are certain trigger points they will stay away from, reflexology is not recommended during pregnancy and just generally someone experienced in making you feel as  comfortable as possible on the massage table.

Float Tanks In Brisbane

So this is a personal favourite, and perhaps not something that comes first to mind when you are thinking of day spa treatments.

Float tanks are an awesome way to shut off the mind from daily stress. They are like little pods where you can retreat from the world, and use high density salt water that is usually heated.

The salt in the water allows your body to float effortlessly, similar to the Dead Sea 

A cover is usually pulled across the top to cocoon you inside, however if you get claustrophobic it can be an idea to ask the person at the spa to allow it to stay a little bit open.

There are a couple of day spa float tanks in Brisbane, but our favourite is The Float Space.

Great if you only have an hour to get away and if you want to try something a little bit different.

Day Spa Sauna Treatments

Saunas are a really good way to add to your massage as they help heat your muscles before you get on the massage table.

Quite a few day spas in Brisbane have these. There are generally two different types, the infra red sauna and then the more traditional sauna that uses water on hot steamed rocks to create a heated environment with high humidity.

We prefer the more traditional style, just because it means the heat is not dry and we find it more comfortable. However infrared saunas do have a lower temperature which some people can prefer.

Either way, a study from the RMIT University in Melbourne, showed that there are many benefits from sauna bathing and it can be a great addition to any spa day.

Another alternative in Brisbane is a Turkish steam room treatment such as the one at Aquarius or a more Asian style bath house. These work on similar philosophies to the saunas but are more a “wet” style of heated room.

Absolutely amazing. The best massages ever. All the girls enjoyed their treatments and Donna and Mel made us feel very comfortable. They turned our AirBNB into a day spa for our weekend away from the kids, just what we all needed. Have already recommended you our friends and will rebook next year.
