Hello my name is Rebecca Herrick. I'm a licensed massage therapist in Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm here to tell you about how to create a day spa at home. Over the past ten years I have worked in many different day spas, many different variety of day spas and there is a few elements that you can bring from those day spas into your home to create a relaxing pampering atmosphere for you and whoever you are working with. Basically throughout all the different day spas I have worked at a couple of things are a commonality. Number one is awakening all the senses to relaxation and relief and for example dim lighting, relaxing music. I find that music with no words work best, words can be distracting so try and find some nice relaxing wordless music that resonates well with you and whoever you are working with. The sense of smell is always a strong part of any day spa. You want it to be subtle and relaxing. You can use scents of lavender or chamomile for that and then of course the scent of your touch and that means having soft comfortable environment or setting in order to give your treatment a nice comfortable couch or bed with lots of pillows and of course lots of candles and different things like that. You'll want to have a sink nearby for any spa treatments that you do. You'll want to have towels nearby also in order to perform the different spa treatments that you will be performing and those are just a few ways of how to create a nice relaxing spa environment at home.
