Preparing for Pampering

If it’s your first spa treatment or not, it’s always a good reminder to prepare your body before receiving a spa treatment. To get the most value out of your service and to help manage your stress during the busy holiday season, Cooper Spa shares pre-massage tips with you!

  1. Use the sauna or steam room prior to treatment, if current health isn’t a restriction. The time that a massage therapist will typically spend warming up your body will be better utilized to work on any particular issues you’d like addressed. The heat also increases blood flow and will aide in the recovery from a deep tissue or fitness massage.
  2. Drink plenty of water, before and after treatment. A hydrated body is a healthy body, particularly for a massage.  You can imagine how much fluid is moved around with the various massage techniques and drinking water is the best way to expel any waste that results from that movement.
  3. Speak up. This is your service and your massage therapist is there to cater to your needs. Don’t be shy if you want less pressure, or more.  And make sure your licensed massage therapist knows about any health matters–it makes  a difference in keeping you comfortable and safe.
  4. Take your time. We certainly want our guests to use our beautifully-renovated locker rooms in Cooper Fitness Center as part of the treatment process. Plan ahead and arrive 20-30 minutes early to take advantage of this unique facility offering.  If you are having 2 or more services or would like information about a guest pass to use the fitness equipment or outdoor track, please ask a teammate (employee) of Cooper Spa.
  5. Go slow after a massage. You won’t want to rush around as your body is in a more relaxed state. Feel free to have a seat with us and don’t feel like you have to leave right away. We enjoy your company.

Expecting the Best at Cooper Spa

In just a few days, my due date will be here and I’m truly Expecting the Best with our second child—a girl! As the Director of Cooper Spa, Dallas, I thought it was the perfect time to experience our Expecting the Best package. I must say that if you are pregnant or know someone who is, this is a real treat. Carrying such a precious gift is truly a miracle, but it sure can tweak some muscles and cause some discomfort.

Happy Easter from the Carrolls!

Massage
With this pregnancy, I’ve had some upper back issues so the 50-Minute Pregancy Massage was just what I needed. The massage therapist worked her magic! I felt some relief immediately after the massage. Enough to know that I had waited too long for that healing touch.

Our Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage relieves stress through the use of massage, specialty contoured body pillows, soft music and aromatherapy. Improved circulation and diminished back and hip pain are benefits of this unique therapy for pregnant women. Postpartum massage can help tone and restore a new mother’s body to its prepregnancy condition and alleviate muscle strain and soreness.

Facial
Next up, my facial. The Eminence® Organic Customized Facial at Cooper Spa is one of my favorite services, regardless of being pregnant or not. The sensory experience is as enjoyable as the focused touch to my skin—lemon, strawberry, pineapple, hydrating stone crop… amazing! A little secret, I would bathe in SkinCeuticals® products if I could. And since my favorite SkinCeuticals Retinol product isn’t pregnancy-friendly, my skin has been ho-hum since day one of finding out ‘Little Miss’ was on her way. After adding in an eye brow wax, because who doesn’t want well-shaped brows in the delivery room, my skin was glowing! There is nothing like having a sense of circulation back in my face.

Pedicure
Finally after really having a wonderful time, I dipped my exhausted feet into that warm, soothing, cleansing pedicure bath. A little scrub here (and a very light rub there), then one of Cooper Spa’s skilled technicians added a pretty pink polish. These tired girls were suddenly feeling the love they were asking for. I suddenly wished I had been better about taking advantage of these services sooner.

But now that I have, I hope you’ll come try them soon or send your loved ones this way—we can take care of their every need! If you’re pregnant, it is always best to consult your physician prior to having spa services.

And remember Mother’s Day is May 11. Now through May 11, purchase a $250 gift card and receive a full-size gym bag complete with a 3-day Cooper Fitness Center guest pass*. As an added bonus, our Spa clients always enjoy complimentary childcare during any spa treatment.
