Since moving to Galway over a year ago I have been searching for a place for me. A place where I can indulge myself in little treats that make me feel good about myself.
You can be excused for thinking I might be talking about a coffee shop that served good cake, but this is so much more important. I have been looking for a beauty salon where the staff are friendly and the service is good, and more importantly where I feel good, going in and even better coming out.
It was an honour to be a guest at an event for SeaBreeze Beauty & Day Spa when they celebrated their 16th birthday towards the end of last year. I came away with a sense of finding my new beauty home. My eyebrows had been threaded as a treat and I was clutching the little booklet which was fast becoming my wish list of treats for me. (anyone wishing to know what I would like for any occasion please feel free to buy me something from here).
There are real perks to being an ITWBN blogger and I was beyond delighted to receive a tweet to ask if I would like to try out one of the SeaBreeze treatments. At the time my back was in a spasm and there was one treatment that jumped into my mind – a massage!
An Oasis of Tranquility
The salon is in Oranmore which is great as it is a minute off the motorway and less than 15 minutes from home for me. As I parked my car, my sense of anticipation was mounting. I knew what was behind the glass doors. Tranquiliity.
The SeaBreeze decor is ‘sea’ themed and there is the most wonderful restful energy in the salon. There is a sense of stepping into another world where worries, stress and to do lists simply do not exist.
Ciara took me off for my Swedish massage which was simply blissful. She was so kind and caring and adjusted the pressure to ensure that I got the benefits but no additional pain as I was very tender that day.
I was so tempted to spend a little while sipping tea in the relaxation room. This room is an oasis itself. Deck loungers would lull you into forgetting about real life. I was honestly so relaxed from my massage that I thought I might fall asleep so I passed this time.
I love quotes and when I saw the quote from John Steinbeck on the wall at SeaBreeze I knew I had found home.
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest and air
Exercise and diet.
If you live in Galway – I urge you to visit Sea Breeze and relax and treat yourself. If you don’t then find your own little oasis and treat yourself when you can. Fabulous Women deserve to be pampered.
Thank you for reading.
