Have you fallen into post-spa depression (PSD)? Spa Week Spring 2012 may be over but the memories and benefits will last a lifetime! Last week we asked you for your Spa Week stories in exchange for more spa in the form of $50 Spa & Wellness Gift Cards for five of you. Winner #1 and her mom discovered The Bomb.

By Noemi Abreu

This was my first time getting a Thai Bomb Massage and it really was THE bomb! I took my mom with me to Enliven Body Works in NYC on the Sunday of Spa Week, and when we left the spa all she kept saying were two very powerful, happy key words: “BRAND. NEW.”

I have nothing but positive things to say about this spa. Enliven is small yet tidy and clean. Decor was simple but nice. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We were greeted with a smile and offered a glass of lemon water as soon as we entered. We were then escorted to a seating area and had our coats removed.

We didn’t wait long before we were escorted to our massage rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Lily started my massage to the sound of relaxing spa music and scents. She started with a Swedish massage followed by the Thai massage with two heated herbal-filled balls (the bombs). It was like nothing I’ve experienced before. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The heated herbal balls were so soothing,  relaxing and therapeutic. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

I’ve since I recommended this spa and massage to all my friends. I cannot wait to re-live it. And my mom’s words are still echoing in my head: “I feel brand new!”

Thanks, Spa Week, for the wonderful (or should I say bomb!) experience! Looking forward to Spa Week Fall 2012. 🙂
