3 Amazing Spa Treats for Your Mum on Mother’s Day

Spa days are a great way to treat your mum on Mother’s Day and it’s also a great way of spending some much-needed, quality time together. Once you have kids of your own, finding that special time for conversation and bonding isn’t so easy, so a spa day is perfect for catching up. But contrary to popular belief, it’s not one-size-fits-all; there are so many different varieties of spa concepts and spa treatments. Some you may already have heard of, others you may be surprised to learn about. So if you’re looking to treat your mum for Mother’ Day this year, take a look at 3 amazing spa ideas to wow her. 

1| Thermal Spa 

Not just any ordinary spa, a thermal spa utilises naturally warm, mineral waters which are known to have healing and health-giving properties. In the 19th Century, it was believed that the power of thermal baths could heal arthritis, skin conditions and rheumatism. Whether you believe in the health benefits or not, there’s no denying that a thermal spa is ultra-relaxing and soothing for the soul. 

If you’re looking to get away for the weekend for an extra special mother and daughter trip, why not visit the Blue Lagoon Natural Spa near Grindavik in Iceland, or the Negombo Thermal Gardens in Ischia, Italy. Or to stay close to home, head to the UK’s original spa town of Bath. 

2| Moroccan Spa

You don’t have to go all the way to Marrakech to experience the ancient magic of a traditional Moroccan Hammam spa. Tucked away on the fifth floor of Harrods in London is the wonderfully relaxing and atmosphere Urban Retreat Spa (full details on UrbanRetreat.co.uk) and here you can treat your mum to a very unique spa experience. Urban Retreat will take you through three rooms; the first room will acclimatise your body to a hot environment, the second room is the hot hammam with luxury bathing rituals, and the third room is a decant lounge for relaxation and restoring your body’s fluid levels. This kind of spa originated from the time of the Roman Empire and today it offers full body scrubbing, moisturising natural oils, a full hair wash, and a body massage across the three rooms. 

3| Oriental Spa

If the Moroccan rituals don’t appeal to you, why not opt for an oriental spa? There are a number of oriental spas in the UK which are built on the concept of Wu Xing elements, something which has been practiced through traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Chinese spas aim to harmonise and rebalance your 5 Wu Xing elements which are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Each of these elements will be rebalanced through a series of detoxing treatments, massages and herbal facials.
