As many women have experienced, the excitement and thrill of creating a new life can begin to take a physical and mental toll on a soon-to-be mom as pregnancy progresses. Living in the moment, enjoying the amazing journey, and keeping a positive perspective for the future enables us to stay focused and on track for the long haul… but not without the addition of some well-deserved pampering here and there. Which is exactly what I was looking for when I discovered the luxurious body ritual aptly named New Life New Mom.
Nourish and soothe my body and soul? Yes, please and thank you.
From the start I was comforted by the relaxing music and the peaceful surroundings. My therapist spoke of what the ritual process that was entailed and the indulging products that would be used, in which the revitalizing leg gel sounded just incredible – and oh, it was. So much so, I picked up the product to take home a piece of luxury.
The entire process promoted well being physically and
mentally. While listening to the soothing music I thoroughly enjoyed the
scalp/foot/leg massage segments partnered with the lavish creams and gels that
were applied in precise phases on my skin, including the essential belly area.
These products promote circulation, reduce swelling, nourish the skin, and
ultimately work to inhibit formation of stretch marks. What’s not to love?
To my very pleasant surprise, the attention received in these vital areas was beyond what I had imagined. This body ritual is truly a treat for the senses: touch, smell, and sound. I felt at ease from the beginning and now feel invigorated. When reflecting on the positive senses that were stirred during this treatment, I very much look forward to doing it again in the near future, and to becoming a new mom!
