A Mother’s Day of Pampering | A Day at the Spa

A Mother's Day of Pampering | A Day at the Spa

Mother’s Day and a day at the spa just go hand in hand! I bet you didn’t know that back in the day I worked for a few different salons and spas! I learned so much about the industry and feel like I could write a book on being the best client, finding the stylist or service provider that fits your needs best and how to tip! So I might just have some high standards after a few years of getting to try out some of the best stylists and spa services back when I lived in Los Angeles!

Soon after moving to Tennessee, I realized that there weren’t many spas to choose from here. Which was really okay, because this Mama sure didn’t have time to pamper herself! I mean seriously, when was the last time you did something just for YOU?! Plus, we are in this whole Dave Ramsey, buy everything with cash season, and there is no line item in the budget for pampering.

But then there is Mother’s Day. A time where Mama’s around the world get a little something special from their loved ones just for THEM!

{and all the praise hands go up!}

The Mother’s Day Spa Experience

I had heard great things about The Woodhouse Day Spa from some locals and decided we would give them a try for a special day of pampering together. In fact, they were named one of the best in Tennessee! First of all, I loved the inviting ambiance in the spa. We were greeted warmly by a spa associate and lead to a dressing room to be fitted with a luxurious robe and reflexology slippers. Mood lighting and a comfy lounge with light snacks, loose-leaf teas and fruit-infused water is key for a perfect spa experience! Teck and I got to hang out for a bit in the Quiet Room where we sipped our tea and giggled with anticipation!

I went with the Mellow Mama massage which is a nurturing full body massage for moms to be. I really didn’t know what to expect but I assumed that I wouldn’t be able to get the full massage experience with the inability to lie on my back. It was surprisingly a very comfortable experience and just what I needed to slow my mind down and unwind. Teck had never had a massage before and she chose the hot stone massage. She could barely walk when she came back into the lounge, she was so relaxed. With having no idea what to expect, the whole experience blew her away!

A Gift for HER

I have been eyeing many of the other services that The Woodhouse Day Spa has to offer. If you strongly dislike the nail salons that smell like chemicals, you’ll definitely want to try out their nail services! I also love that they take a more holistic approach to skin care using certified organic ingredients in many of their treatments. I don’t know about you, but a facial to me is even more relaxing than a massage! The Spa also offers waxing, sleep treatments and body treatments. If only Phil would let me drag him to a spa, because they have incredible packages for two! But hey, with Mother’s Day coming up, at least they have a handful of amazing packages for just us Moms, too.

They even have a special for those who treat their Mother (wife) to a gift card of $250 or more — a beautiful floral robe! So don’t say I never did anything for you ladies, because if you are local, you can just share this post to your wall to give your crew the subtle hint they need to purchase just the right gift. {because you know they haven’t bought you anything yet!}

Question for the comments: What will you be gifting to a Mom this year? OR What would you want to receive?

A BIG thank you to THE WOODHOUSE day spa in Franklin, TN for giving me this amazing experience with my daughter! While this was a treat from The Woodhouse day spa, all opinions are my own. I can’t wait to hear you tell me how much you enjoyed your Woodhouse experience!
