South Florida Moms, How Do You Spell R-E-L-I-E-F?


Although some may argue we live in a virtual paradise here in south Florida, Moms certainly don’t have it easy - dealing with smelly diapers, troublesome toddlers, and tenacious teens - and a day off comes once in a blue moon. When you are on your feet all day, every day, the stress can build and build with no relief.

The demands of motherhood can certainly wear you down, but thankfully, there are ways to relax and calm down. A little bit of self care at a local south Florida spa can help ease some of the tension and stress. We have found local spa treatments that are perfect for busy moms in Boca Raton, Palm beach county. Whether you are a mother-to-be seeking some prenatal relief or a more seasoned mom looking to freshen up with a microdermabrasion, we hope to share with you some amazing ways to pamper yourself.

Prenatal Organic Massage

Pregnancy pushes your body to the limit and can leave you feeling constantly achy and pained. This sensation can lead to fatigue and can emphasize any stresses, leaving you to feel as if there’s no relief.

Thankfully, there are massages available that can relieve all of the aches and pains you experience during pregnancy, putting pressure on all of your most needy spots and leaving you relaxed.

Prenatal massages are designed to give your spine the support it needs by using comfortable and efficient pregnancy alignment cushions.

Aromatherapy is also used with this massage to relax your mind and body, and also to help improve circulation and your immune system. Your masseuse may use lavender oil for calming effects, or tea-tree oil may be used for healing or energizing purposes. Prenatal Organic Massages are a great choice if you’re pregnant and want some relief from the fatigue and pain that comes with pregnancy.

Crystal-free Microdermabrasion

Motherhood has glorious highs and pitfall lows - and the lows can leave you feeling and looking fatigued and miserable.

Microdermabrasion is minimally invasive and requires little to no recovery time. It’s a safe option for all skin types and is recommended every couple of weeks. You’re sure to notice a difference after the first treatment.

Some of the conditions that this procedure treats are:

  • Sun damage for the intense South Florida sun
  • Wrinkles
  • Oversized pores
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma

This treatment does wonders in brightening your overall skin complexion by toning and soothing your skin. Skin congestion and dull skin will be a thing of the past, so you’ll be left with a bright and healthy-looking face.

Your skincare specialist will use a special applicator to remove the tired outer layer of skin, to rejuvenate it for a youthful look. Some techniques may use aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate and use suction, which essentially gives you the same result.

Warrior Princess Pedicure

Pregnancy and motherhood can be tough on your mind and body, and spa treatments can be a way to alleviate this stress. Being pampered can soothe your soul and relax your body, and is something every woman deserves during pregnancy or motherhood.

Achy or swollen feet can be a huge problem during pregnancy, and a way to soothe the pain is by getting a pedicure. The Warrior Princess Pedicure uses a mixture of charcoal lava suds and an invigorating star fruit sugar scrub to clean and exfoliate your skin, getting rid of any dead skin and leaving your feet smooth and fresh.

Once the scrub has been applied, you’ll receive a calming massage. The combination of blackberry and vanilla will not only smell great but will help the area retain moisture and prevent dry skin. Vanilla is also great for promoting healthy skin, so you’re sure to feel refreshed and ready to face motherhood after a Warrior Princess Pedicure.

Green Tea RX Arnica Gel

After a long hard day carrying around a child or disciplining a defiant toddler, some Green Tea RX Arnica Gel might be just what you need.

This gel is full of ingredients that offer healing and anti-inflammatory benefits. The use of wildcrafted green and white tea has an antibacterial effect, as well as anti-inflammatory. The aches and pains of motherhood can get you down, but the Green Tea RX Arnica Gel is sure to bring you right back up.

The use of Org Gotu Kola helps boost the production of collagen as well as boosting your circulation, whereas Org Peppermint Oil will help to relieve any fatigue you may be experiencing.

Another key ingredient is the Org Dandelion - it helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles, which can appear with stress and fatigue.

Spa treatments are a popular choice for relaxation - an hour or two at a spa can relieve tension, aches, pains, and can reduce stress hormones almost instantly.

After a spa visit, you’re likely to feel more comfortable in your skin and ready to face whatever challenges may come your way.
