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.
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!
Ripple is a mobile massage and beauty business that brings the day spa to you across all Brisbane City and all Brisbane suburbs.
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.
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.
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.
