Not Your Average Spa Whether you’re a stay-at-home or working outside the home mom, it’s easy to find yourself in the fast lane, which often leaves us mentally, emotionally, and spiritually drained. When was the last time you did something for you? When was the last time you had some extra time,energy, or money, and didn’t put your kid’s wants ahead of your own needs?I frequently remind myself that when flying on an airplane, the flight attendant instructs you in event of an emergency to put your oxygen mask on first, before helping others. This is an important metaphor in life, because if you don’t take care of yourself you will not be able to properly take care of others. One way I discovered that helped me take care of myself was at Waterfalls Salon and Massage.Just entering the building, the aroma of the room put me a comfortable state of bliss.
I quickly came to realize they weren’t your typical spa offering run of the mill services, instead they have a well educated medical massage practitioner, esthetician, teeth whitening agent, and eyelashes/eyebrow services. You can tell their mission it to make you feel good inside and out.When I asked co-owner, Meloni Staples, how their services help moms in Virginia, she stated,“do I need these lashes because I just want to feel pretty?”My answer is, yes, yes I do! When I feel good, and look good doing it, it inspires me to continue to take care of myself.
With so many services offered, I decided on the Pure Wave sauna. It was so invigorating and revitalizing with the use of CBD salve and pure essential oils, it penetrates deep to the muscles to relieve pain and fatigue. Of course I got my eyelashes done too!Waterfall Salon and Massage has two locations, Bon Air and Glen Allen, but what’s even better is they can also come to you!

Nasser Staples,co-owner, recommended in between their services some simple ways to stay healthy are taking a brisk walking, listening to some soothing jazz, taking a warm bath or a weekend getaway!This is good advice with or without massage services, as a firm believer of self care, find time for you
