Does anyone else share their birthday month with a close friend? Mona and I happen share a birthday month and we decided long ago to stop getting one another gifts and to make a point to do something together for our birthdays. This year Mona suggested Fox and the Snow Cafe and I said ok but only if we can go to a spa afterwards. Speak your mind people! We decided it had been a few years since we had visited the Woodhouse Day Spa in Dublin and booked appointments right away. I decided to do something different …. something rejuvenating and ridding myself of any bad juju. I booked the Lazy Days Renewal Ritual which included a massage and seaweed bath . If you’re afraid to be in your total birthday suit at the spa, then this is not for you! First I experienced a seaweed scrub prepping my skin to receive the benefits of the live seaweed in the warm bath water. After in the tub you drape the seaweed over your body. The seaweed helps detoxify your body. I was brought water and wine tubside. Yeah baby! The seaweed did have pungent smell and had a slime feel to it but I got past it. After the bath, back to the massage table for a full body massage. The massage therapist asked how I felt at the end and I said like jello. Afterwards I met Mona in the lounge and we got to chat some more. Mona had he hot stone massage and she enjoyed it and felt relaxed. If you want to step outside your box and feel liberated I suggest the Lazy Days Renewal Ritual!
