Saint Valentine’s Day. A day for lovers and a day to honour the patron saint of beekeeping. For many of us, Valentine’s day is a stressful day as we eagerly try to impress our lover. There are some among us, however, who rise to the challenge of the perfect Valentine’s gift, others (me) run to the drug store to buy chocolates and a card while their Valentine is still in bed…
If you are keen to impress your Valentine this year, or just want to treat yourself to something nice, then skip the diamonds, skip the fancy dinner (that you probably didn’t make a reservation) for and let someone else take care of the pampering for you. Here’s a few ways to score some extra brownie points this year.
Full Body Massage
The massage: a proven staple of Valentine’s Day. Who doesn’t love the thought of being romantically massaged by their partner? A candle-lit room, scattered rose petals, aromatic oils. That’s romantic. But they’re never long enough, you have to return the favour, and the clean up is always a drag. Now experiencing a massage from a Registered Massage Therapists in Vancouver is a superb alternative to this Valentine’s tradition. A quality massage, where you are the centre of attention, is enhanced by our locally-made aromatherapy. A memorable experienced accentuated by the fact that you don’t have to clean up after. If you’re looking for a little something extra, we offer several treatments that you can pair with your massage.
Some people were born with the gift of romance; they seemingly always have a bouquet of roses at the ready and their text messages read like beautifully crafted sonnets. I, for one, am not that fortunate. My idea of a romantic evening is agreeing on what kind of pizza to order. But if I have learned anything about love, it’s that spending intimate time together is kind of important. The infrared sauna is the perfect spot for a quiet escape. Relax together in our cedar sauna while the infrared rays warm you from the inside. Not only does the sauna melt away your daily stresses, it works to detox your body of pollutants leaving you feeling revitalized.
Let’s be clear, there isn’t anything sexy about a traditional seaweed wrap. But a Seaflora body wrap (and the ensuing results) is a completely different story. A body wrap leaves you looking good and feeling good, and there is nothing sexier than that. Using wild organic seaweed hand-picked off the west coast of Vancouver Island, our seaweed wrap is a revitalizing experience. The wrap works to restore your energy levels and infuses your skin and circulatory system with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, while promoting healthy detoxification.
Living one Valentine’s day at a time
No matter what day you decide to celebrate Valentine’s Day (there are 5 other days to choose from in case you were wondering), make it what you want. And if you decide to celebrate the traditional Valentine who coincidently is the patron saint of fainting, don’t get too worked up about it. There are lots of ways to make up for giving the same drugstore chocolates as last year.
