Spa Blu – Ultimate Relaxation with Pink Himalayan Salt Massage

*DISCLAIMER: This is a sponsored post. Although I have received compensation for this post, all opinions are 100% my own*

Taking care of myself is one of the last things that I do. I normally go, go, go, go, go, go some more, go, and then maybe rest. When I finally do rest, I CRASH. I turn my phone off, I lock myself up in my home, and I become a hermit for several days. Self care extreme is what I like to call it. I haven’t learned to balance going and resting yet. Because of that, I’m super grateful when I get opportunities that allow me some rest in the midst of my going like a recent visit to Spa Blu at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino Shreveport.

Spa Blu is located on the hotel’s 3rd floor and includes a spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, and pool. They offer a variety of spa treatments including facials, body treatments, nail treatments, and massages which is what I received. I didn’t get just a normal massage. I received a Himalayan Pink Salt Stone Massage. Spa Blue is the ONLY spa in the Shreveport-Bossier City area that offers this service. Talk about EXCLUSIVE! The mechanics of the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage are very similar to a hot stone massage, but the benefits differ.

How does Himalayan Salt Stone Massage differ from traditional hot stone massage?

  • It akalizes the skin
  • It contains 84 naturally occurring minerals and salts to nourish the body
  • It balances and neutralizes the effects of the toxic frequencies we live in
  • It lightly exfoliates the skin

When I arrived at the spa, I was surprised that I had passed the spa several times going to the pool, but never noticed it. The reception area is bright, smells great, and immediately puts you in the mood for ultimate relaxation. Once my necessary paperwork was filled out, I was escorted back to the women’s dressing room which was beautifully decorated where my locker with robe and slippers awaited me. This is where Spa Blu’s customer service completely won me over.

There was a robe that not only fit me, but was a little big and shoes that fit perfectly. As a plus size woman with a large foot, I always have issues with spas not having robes or slippers that fit me. How exactly am I supposed to be relaxed when you don’t even have relaxation wear that fits me? I don’t think that I am in the extra section of plus size so is that really too much to ask? I’m not asking spas to have a XXXXXXXXXXXXL robe. I just need two or three X’s depending on the fit. I didn’t have to worry about this at Spa Blu. I know some of you may be thinking that I provided them with my information before my visit and that’s how they got it right. I had never met the representatives of the spa before prior to my visit, and the extent of our conversations was finding out a date when I could come visit. The fact that they were prepared and ready for me showed their care for good customer service and we all know that is hard to come by these days.

After I was changed, I met my masseuse Brandi and she led me to the room where my massage would take place. When we entered the room, Brandi made sure to tell me what all I would be experiencing, she showed me the Himalayan Pink Salt Stones, and told me about the benefits of the massage itself. During my massage, Brandi pointed out some of my tension areas and even gave me some recommendations on how frequently I should get massages even if I didn’t come and see her.

I have to be honest and say this was one of the best massages I have ever received. The heat of the stones, the right amount of pressure that Brandi used, and the atmosphere in the room almost caused me to go to sleep. I never relax enough during massages because my mind is always going 1000 miles per hour or I’m upset because they didn’t have a robe that fit me or countless other things. The only thing that kept me from going to sleep this time was I was trying to stay in the moment to remember everything to write this blog post for you all. I did this for you! It’s all for you and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Because we all like discounts, Spa Blu offers monthly specials to complement their variety of services. Since June is Father’s Day, you can treat your dad to a Gentleman’s Bourbon Pedicure for $40. Other June Specials are Signature Blu Chaser Massage for $72, Signature Facial for $64, and 20% off all waxing. On top of the purchased service, guests are granted access to the sauna, steam room, pool, and fitness center for 24 hours after their service. How freaking cool is that? Spa Blu is doing it right and I can’t wait to go back.
