I Accidentally Had A Happy Ending at a SPA!



My very first experience at the spa will be one that I will never forget.

I was gifted an hour massage, followed by a 45-minute jet spa soak, as well as a pedicure. I had never been to a spa-like experience before and so I was extremely excited. 

For purposes of this blog, I am not going to disclose the location of my spa experience, however; I will tell you what I had done if you are interested in trying it out for yourself. 

As soon as I arrived, I was handed a big fluffy robe, some comfy slippers, and a glass of champagne (yeah baby). I have three boys ranging in ages 14, 12, and all the way to one years old and so I was ready for some relaxing quiet time. By the end of my spa experience, something happened that was extremely unintended, absolutely amazing, and will keep me coming again and again; to the spa that is.

After I changed into my comfortable robe and put my clothes in the locker I was guided to a relaxation room. The room was equipped with lounge chairs, a fountain, relaxing music, and get this a cell phone inhibitor, so you have no cell phone reception. 

The lounge area is basically, just a waiting room until your beauticians or massage therapists are ready. It wasn’t too long until my massage therapist came and got me. I was ushered back into a dimly lit room fit with a bed that I situated myself on. I love how most massage beds are heated. I know we live near the Devils Anus (Thor Ragnarok reference), but I love nice warm sheets. 

The massage was relaxing, of course, I ordinarily love a deep, painful, get your fingers in the depths of my muscles massage, but this one was nice and soothing. After my one-hour massage, I got up clumsily and discombobulated (I was so relaxed). I then put my robe back on and went to the lounge waiting area.

Next on my spa adventure was the all mighty Hydro Bath. When the spa associate came and guided me to the hydro room, she asked if I ever had one of these baths before? I said, no. She smirked.

I wasn’t really sure what was going to be involved in this bath experience. I thought possibly some essential oils, bubbles, and a really fancy atmosphere.


Ladies, maybe gentleman, but mostly ladies get your beautiful selves to a spa and try out the hydro massage.

Let me break this down for you.

You walk into a room with a tub that is absolutely ginormous. Then you disrobe and get in by climbing this small little ladder.

The tub was already full of warm water and the first thing that I noticed was 100 or so jets surrounding me. Just like the massage chair you sit in when you get a pedicure, this spa had a remote with different massage settings. The beautician went ahead and set the spa for a full-body massage. She briefly asked me if I had any questions, I told her no, and then she pressed the start button and left the room. Holy Cow.

The jets start at your feet.  Slowly very slowly they work their way up your body, ankles, calves, knees, thighs, upper thighs, and the upper upper thighs. Can we pause the jets here? Ha.

Just imagine jets so powerful that you need to hold onto the handles so that you don’t float away. I probably had the open mouth gasping face the whole time.

‘If my grandma was still alive she would tell me to close my mouth so that I don’t catch flies. Luckily there were no insects or anyone else in this room, so I was good.  

Forty-five minutes later and I am glowing.

I feel like it is my womanly duty to spread the power of the hydrobath.

Number one, you deserve it; number two, you don’t get enough time for yourself, and number three oh my God Becky.
