Whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, motherhood is simply not easy. Juggling between drop-offs and pick-ups, making meals and extra-curricular activities, possibly dealing with work deadlines and meetings, this seems like a never-ending cycle and that can really take a toll on our bodies. Think about it, when was the last time you had some time to relax for just a couple of hours? How long haven’t you had a massage, facial or manicure (remember those good old days when you didn’t have kids and you could do that anytime you wanted)?
Over the years, I have learned that moms really need to make time to care for ourselves. They say “Happy wife, happy life”, I say “Happy mom, happy family”. The wellness of a mom means the wellness of the family. That’s why I have been purposely making time to visit a spa to have some down time on a regular basis. A full-body massage or a facial really help me to destress both mentally and physically.
If you are looking for a great spa in Markham then I recommend Aroma Day Spa Markham . I have been going to this spa for over two years. Located at the heart of Markham (right across from Markville Mall), this spa is a perfect place for a little “me-time”, a get-together with girlfriends, and a romantic night-out where you can unwind, relax and let your troubles melt away (at least for a couple of hours).
Check out a video of my recent visit with two of my friends.
As you enter, you are greeted by friendly staff and are welcomed into a beautiful lounge area with elegant décor and tranquil atmosphere. After checking in with the staff, you can help yourself to a little treat or grab a magazine while you wait for your service. When it is your turn, the staff will escort you to your room to prepare for your treatment.
Aroma Day Spa has a number of beautiful and spacious private rooms that can accommodate individuals, couples or small groups. There is a wide range of spa services including different kinds of massages, facials, body scrubs and even foot massages. They also offer a few different packages with great value too.
There is also a large Nail Lounge in a brightly lit area that you can get a luxurious spa manicure and pedicure done. Whether you like to regular nail polish, shellac or bio gel, they’ve got it all. They can even do mani & pedi for little girls. Perfect for a mother-daughter time.
My Favourite Treatments at Aroma Day Spa
1. Deep Tissue Body Massage
I get this treatment the most often because I suffer from a lot of neck and shoulder pain. The massage therapists are very good at helping to relax my muscles and alleviate the pain. I always go home and have a great sleep afterwards, sometimes I even fall asleep during the massage. There are so many benefits of massage including easing your muscle pain, improving insomnia, boosting your immunity, relieving headaches and more. If you haven’t had one yet or in a while, you absolutely owe it to yourself to get one! Just make sure you let the therapist know what kind of pressure you like and which part of your body you want them to focus on, they will accommodate your needs.
2. Collagen Facial
This is a total treat to your skin especially in the winter. The treatment repairs and restores your dry and dull skin using a natural collagen serum. Collagen is great not only for hydrating your skin but also in diminishing your fine lines and pore sizes. My skin always feels baby soft and is glowing after the treatment.
3. Mani & Pedi
Who doesn’t like a mani & pedi? Don’t ignore your hands and feet! They need to look good and feel good too. I like having my nails done at Aroma because I think they do such a nice job that my manicure even stays on longer than when I get it done at other places. I would love to try a paraffin treatment next time I go.
