You can’t look after others if you don’t look after yourself: This is perhaps the most important message for moms balancing work, home and family.
“People are searching for unique experiences that allow them to decompress, unplug and reconnect more than ever,” says Luba Plotnikoff, marketing and media relations manager at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort in Parksville. “With our guests’ wellbeing in mind, we create packages and offer treatments so they can unwind, reconnect and recharge.”
Tigh-Na-Mara’s newest offering – the Reconnect Package – helps guests rediscover the healing properties of nature to nurture mind, body and spirit.
“This unique package includes a ‘Forest Bathing Tour,’ also known as forest therapy, shown to decrease anxiety and blood pressure, and increase a sense of wellbeing,” Plotnikoff says. “You’ll also enjoy the soothing, detoxifying benefits of our Grotto Spa mineral pool. These experiences allow you to de-stress and refresh – a positive, healthy way to care for yourself so you can be at your best caring for those you love.”
Always do your best: The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara has taken that message to heart – it’s been voted the #1 spa in Canada by Spas of America, the largest spa and wellness travel website showcasing more than 600 of the best resort, hotel and health spas to consumers around the world. “We are honoured to retain the title for a second year in a row,” notes Grotto Spa director Paulina Alexander. “We are very proud of our team members who are committed to providing our guests with the best spa experiences.”
Don’t wait until the last minute: Good things go quickly, and time at Canada’s #1 spa is no different. While prime weekend dates can be a hot commodity and typically book up early, making time for a weekday escape offers numerous opportunities to enjoy some serious pampering, Alexander says. And really, who needs an excuse for a midweek massage?
The kitchen is the heart of the home: Tigh-Na-Mara’s executive chef, Eric Edwards, and his culinary team at Cedars Restaurant & Lounge believe in creating handcrafted dishes, maintaining the integrity of the ingredients, guaranteeing freshness and using local whenever possible… preparing classic family favourites to please your palate and warm your heart!
And always, the Golden Rule: Yes, “treat others the way you’d like to be treated.” And in this case, why not treat mom to the spa treatment you’d like to enjoy yourself? Even better, visit together and share an especially relaxing experience. Not sure what she’d like? You can’t go wrong with a gift card!
