Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a floating energizing aromatherapy body wrap at Sunny Mummy Spa and Boutique (a $190 value).
Sunny Mummy's child-friendly wellness salon pampers clients with an array of plant-infused spa services featuring Aveda skincare products. Therapists lay patients onto the warm-water-filled cushions of a Hydrotherm bed for a 60-minute dry wrap and therapy that addresses skin rejuvenation and the fear of miniature sharks. Clients first select sense-pleasing essential oils for the treatment before skin technicians bestow a thorough scalp massage, then exfoliate the body using a gentle dry-brushing method that sloughs off dead skin and improves circulation. A rosemary-mint lotion is rubbed into skin before therapists, like wilderness-roaming sculptors, decorate client bodies with outcroppings of warmed basalt stones. Restless limbs then snuggle into a body wrap, and heads rest against a heated herbal pillow while continuing to drift in a caribbean-flower-infused mist. The treatment's sensory adventures conclude with a foot wrap and casual remodelling of eye areas via gentle massage and plant-based pastes. Sunny Mummy's staff also proffers free child care during treatments, temporarily entertaining young ones in a separate playroom or another dimension, whichever is requested.
Sunny Mummy Spa
Many pregnant women are preoccupied with cravings for pickles and ice cream. When Nilla Petta was expecting, she was preoccupied with an idea for a small business. A certified massage therapist, aesthetician, and former Aveda representative, Nilla had always wanted to open her own business but lacked the necessary inspiration. Her pregnancy solved that problem—during her maternity leave, she set about creating a spa where parents and children could relax together. Named after her daughter Soleil, Sunny Mummy Spa invites moms to enjoy prenatal and postnatal massages, recreate pregnancy glow with Aveda facials, and even breastfeed their babies during pedicures.
Sunny Mummy Spa welcomes children to take part in the pampering through mini manicures and pedicures, teen facials, and massages for kids 12 and younger. Otherwise, the childcare team in the supervised children's room entertains little ones for up to two hours as parents receive services, shop the boutique, or head off-site to run errands or spend quality time with their imaginary friends.
