Empower Magazine contributing writer Lisa Pradia made the decision to place a premium on self-care with a recent visit to one of the area’s premier day spas and shares highlights from her visit.
As soon as I stepped into the doors of Pure Vichy, an upscale salon and day spa located in the heart of River Oaks, I knew I was in for a relaxing hour of pampering and self-care.
As a busy professional and mother to a daughter whose schedule keeps me moving with purpose from sunup to sundown, I often find myself running on empty. I knew that I was long overdue for some much-needed “me” time, although I must admit that putting my needs first felt a bit self-indulgent. But I quickly relinquished those thoughts as the spa’s inviting ambiance subliminally welcomed me to relax and unwind – from the softly flickering scented candles to the pristine and inviting decor of the reception area.
I felt welcomed and indulged from start to finish. When I stepped through the doors of the posh spa, I received a warm and inviting greeting from the receptionist. I was then guided to a massage room where for the next hour, I was left in the expert and meticulous hands of one of the spa’s talented masseuses. I must admit that I love to be pampered but don’t entrust that service to just anyone. But my standards were quickly exceeded as my masseuse wrapped me in fresh aromatherapy linens, listened attentively to my needs and inquired about any problem areas.
When I left my one-hour massage session, my masseuse was extremely courteous and gave me advice to help me until my next visit.
I give Pure Vichy a thumbs-up for a stellar spa experience and encourage other women to take time out to invest in themselves to enhance their wellbeing. Self-care is the best care, but unfortunately, many women fail to carve out time to focus on their own needs. I have plans for a busy and productive 2020 and have no doubt that I started the year off right by taking the time to make my needs a priority.
My visit exceeded my expectations. Not only does the spa offer a range of luxurious massages to suit the individual needs of customers, it also offers skin and hair care services.
After leaving Pure Vichy and getting home, I experienced an added bonus from my massage and had one of the best night’s sleep I have had in weeks.
Opened in 2017, Pure Vichy is owned by LeBrina Johnson and is located at 2128 Welch Street, Ste. B, Houston, Texas 77019. The River Oaks-area salon and day spa offers an array of services and is making plans to expand in cities and states outside of Houston and to add to the spa’s current list of services.
