September has been all about spa and spa treatments and for my latest review, I went on down to Fort Lauderdale Beach to the W Fort Lauderdale, which sits right across the street from the shore. Two weeks ago all of those hurricanes were chilling in the Atlantic so they waves weren’t as friendly as the normally are and the sudden whips of wind totally killed my hair! But enough about that! On to the review!
On the third floor of these ultra modern hotel taking up more than 4,000 square feet is the Bliss Spa. You may be very familiar with Bliss because not only do they have spas all over the country, they also sell their spa goodies online. (I snatched up a few myself, which I will review later!) I first walked into their Bliss Spa boutique to check in and then I was taken to the women’s locker room and lounge. It wasn’t your typical locker room, taking its cue from the contemporary hotel it’s housed in. It didn’t take long for me to get into those terry robes and slippers that I love so very much and sit in the lounge that had cool red and white geometric wall paper and clean line couches. Square plates of cheese, crackers, and brownies were there for my snacking pleasure (and the brownies were good by the way!)
Soon my massage therapist came in and took me to my dimly lit, all white room for my Blissage 75. Once I lay down on the heated table (which is great by the way!) It starts with wrapping my feet in a very hot wax foot-softening wrap. It felt wonderful to me because my skin loves scorching hot water. However, if you don’t have a high tolerance for heat, you may want to skip it. During the massage it does solidify around your feet and feels kinda squishy in a good relaxing kind of way! I was then massaged for 75 minutes from head, including my neck, to toe, with the wrap coming off and my masseuse massaging each and every toe! It’s a deep tissue massage, which my body always craves for and afterwards, all I wanted to do was sleep! The oil he used didn’t leave me feeling all sticky, though my feet had to be wiped off (due to the wax) so I didn’t kill myself!
I really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend this one to my ladies who need to get all of those body knots and tensions massaged out!
