When Capella Singapore’s Auriga spa launched its Baby Moon Experience in May, I was thrilled because being pregnant it sounded like just what I needed to soothe my aching and tired muscles. So, one evening after work, I headed down to Auriga to try it out. It was truly a holistic treatment that focused not only on my entire body but also on my emotional well-being as well. I loved the experience so much that I had to share the details with you:
The Baby Moon Experience begins with a pre-natal massage for mothers. JJ, my therapist, told me to lie on my side and gave me a nice long pillow to snuggle up against. She then gently and tenderly massaged by back and legs. It was such a relief! As a mother of an eight-year-old boy, JJ imparted many invaluable tips from her own experience. One of the things that I learnt from her was that I should try to put my legs up on a pillow every day after work to reduce swelling and water retention. She even rubbed the Organic Pharmacy Mother & Baby Oil all around my tummy to prevent stretch marks. The amount of care and concern she showed really moved me.
After the massage, I had an Organic Rose Facial which was not only relaxing but also purifying for my skin. Very often, due to hormonal changes in our body, stress and anxiety, our skin can sometimes break out. The Organic Rose Facial not only cleanses the pores naturally but also soothes any inflammations there may be.
The last part of the treatment focused on my hair and scalp. As pregnancy often brings with it much apprehension and worry about the baby and about motherhood, I found the massage really helped calm my nerves and any headaches I was having! JJ really rubbed the organic oil deep into my scalp and hair, which made my hair wonderfully silky soft afterward.
I left the treatment feeling wonderfully refreshed and rejuvenated. During a time when pregnancy can leave one feeling bloated and heavy, I felt so cared for and immensely pampered. This is something I would definitely recommend to any expecting mother.
