At-Home Spa Experience: Bring In A Pro

This holiday season give the gift of relaxation and beauty with an at-home (or office) spa experience.

Soothe offers the Calm. Cleanse. Cure. Holiday Gift Set to send relaxation to loved ones and peace to business associates. Opening the elegantly wrapped package, I succumbed to the alluring bath salts before booking the on-demand massage with the enclosed gift card. The healing ingredients include lemongrass fragrance for a citrusy aroma, and coconut milk, which helps maintain skin elasticity and prevents wrinkles. My skin felt incredibly soft and put me in the mood to book the massage. While there were a few kinks using the gift card on the Soothe app, I called tech support and was immediately connected to a live person in California who cleared the way.

As for the massage, words cannot describe how nice it is to have someone come to my apartment, arriving on time with all the necessities to transform my home into the spa of my dreams. A five-star rated therapist, brought the proper table, balm and music choices on a Saturday afternoon. I chose a citrus essential oil and classical music suitable for my temperament. After the massage, I strolled into my own bathroom and slipped into another luxurious tub filled with the Moloka’i and ‘Alaea salts. Feeling pure and toxic-free, I was magically transported to a fancy Thai resort, rather than soaking in my apartment bath. Emerging, I felt calm and prepared for a family dinner that night – so keep this in mind for Thanksgiving.

This gift is an individualized experience and occurs in someone’s home, office or hotel. It is available in 70 markets across 4 countries with over 13,000 background-checked therapists. Elizabeth, my masseuse, is a trained physician’s assistant and is highly rated. One tip: tell gift recipients to request five-star rated therapists when they book the massage.
