What is your favourite way to relax and treat yourself? As a busy working mum I hardly get any peace and quiet so my ideal relaxation time would be a massage or something spa based. Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing some of my favourite spas and places to pamper yourself!
Although it can easily be forgotten we should remind ourselves the importance of taking time out to refresh and relax. I know it can be hard to find the time, but try to put a few hours or so aside for YOU at least once a month.
In today’s post I wanted to give a quick shoutout to Little Jasmine day spa and Beauty Salon in Brighton & Hove.
What is so good about this particular spa?
In short, the standard of their treatments is absolutely amazing! I haven't been anywhere else in the UK that lives up to the same standard of massage as Little Jasmine. I’ve had lots of massages at other places too but I find the ones here superior to other massage therapies I’ve tried, they also seem to be very consistent no matter which person you get doing the treatment which is really great. There's nothing worse than having a great treatment by one therapist then something on a totally different level from another at the same place.
As well as being relaxing I find the massages actually 'do' something too to help my back pain for the longer than the time the massage lasts. Of course it's lovely to have a massage to help you feel relaxed but if it can help joint pain too for a longer period of time then that's a massive bonus right?! My favourite massage they offer is the Thai Fusion, which is a combination of Thai oil, traditional Thai, hot stone and deep tissue. I haven’t found a massage like this anywhere else and it’s soooooo good! In my opinion it's the perfect balance between stretching to sort out those pains and being very relaxing.
A little background about my body:
For many years now I have had back pain, it pretty much aches all the time and since having a baby I find my hips get quite achey too if I walk for too long ect. Spending a lot of time at a desk doesn’t help either, combined with stress and not enough sleep. I’ve been trying to find ways to help this and so far yoga and massages have been the most helpful.
I have been to a chiropractor before for the aches and pains but I have actually found these massages to be more beneficial which is a really great...as well as cheaper and more relaxing haha. Of course everyone is different so if you do have chronic pains be sure to tell your massage therapist before hand so they can make sure you are having the suitable treatment!
What else do they offer?
As well as a variety of amazing massages Little Jasmine also offer beauty treatments such as Elemis facials, crystal clear microdermabrasion, nails and waxing (there are so many varieties of facials and massages so be sure to check out their website for the full details). I am hoping to book a crystal clear microdermabrasion facial when I get some free time, so I will definitely let you all know how that goes! Something else I love at this spa is the infrared sauna, I personally love to go in the sauna for half an hour before having a massage. These two combined are absolute heaven!!
I have to say I'm really pleased that I have finally got around to writing this blog post...I'm so slow with getting posts up I know sorryyyy (busy mumlife takes over)! I've wanted to mention Little Jasmine Spa for quite some time now. I love sharing amazing little finds like this with you all! There are so many places out there that it can be hard to choose. I do genuinely believe that this place is worth every single penny and is 100% worth trying out if you haven't already. If you only have limited time and your hard earned cash it's important to choose somewhere that is going to give you the best possible treatments and experience :-) hopefully some of you will be able to enjoy the lovely therapies here as much as I have over the years!
If you do visit Little Jasmine spa or have been here before i'd love to know your thoughts and favourite treatments?
Also as a side note - this place does the BEST thai tea! They bring it over from Thailand and it is just blissssss... If you have been to Thailand and miss the tea then you need to book up here just so you can have some haha!
** DISCLAIMER I was NOT paid for this post - I contacted Little Jasmine to ask if they'd be interested in me writing a blog post to which they replied yes and offered me a complimentary massage as well as 10% off for my lovely readers. I have been paying for treatments here for years and will continue to do so for many more i'm sure! **
