Mental health. It is real. It is raw. It is all around us.
Every person, at some point in their lives, whether it be during childhood or adulthood, will experience, or know someone who will experience, some form of mental health issue. It could be short term or it could be lifelong. We are all different and experience and deal with challenges in our own way.
Having a career as an Aesthetician for the last 12 years and a spa owner for 7 of those years, I have met and talked to a lot of people. I am so lucky to have been blessed with a career that helps people not only look and feel their best, but also one where I was able to create an environment that people can come to so they can escape and forget about life’s problems for a few hours.
There is something magical about spending time at a spa. I mean a real spa. A spa where all the Aestheticians are passionate about what they do, love their work and have one goal in mind…to make you not only look your best, but also to make you feel ahhhhmazing. A spa where you walk through the door and you can be yourself,leave all your stress outside and just come in and be you. If you can find a spa that truly brings solace, positivity and light to your life while you are there, then hold it close and know your heart is in a place that makes you happy and fills your soul.
As Aestheticians, while focusing on your body, we also do our absolute best to care for your mind. We listen as intently as we can and provide as much advice and guidance as we see fit. We work on breathing and meditation, connecting our energy to yours while helping you rid yourself of any negative energy. We help to relieve anything that you may be carrying with you, even if it provides only temporary relief.
As you can imagine, we hear a lot of stories , and will do our best to listen and guide you along the path that is best for you. If you want to spill everything that is on your mind, then we are here for you. However, if you want to have a visit where you just come to relax and escape and have some quiet time, then that’s ok too. We are here to just make you feel like you are the only one who matters. We are here to put your mind at ease and bring you some peace in this crazy life.
Self-care has become such a “trend” nowadays and we believe taking care of yourself should never be a trend; it should be something that we all put focus into all the time and should never be something that you don’t think you are worthy of. You DO deserve to put you first. You DO deserve to make time for the things that you want, and if that means a trip to the spa, then go for it girl! Do what fills you. Do what makes you feel like the Queen you are!
So, if you are feeling down; if you are feeling angry; if you are feeling upset or like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, then give your friendly neighborhood Aesthetician a call and book yourself a treat! A facial would be my suggestion but that’s because it is my all-time favorite service to give and one of the best things you can do not only for your skin, but for your soul.
