The last few years have certainly been interesting for many of us, starting back at the end of 2019 with some pretty horrible bushfires across the state, including in and around the Sydney region. With Covid-19 then hitting our shores, bringing with it lockdowns and isolation periods for us, you’re certainly not alone if you’re having trouble getting your energy levels back to what they once were, let alone reconnecting with people.
As we start the push towards the second half of the year, it’s time to focus on your mental and physical wellness. The Balmain Peninsula is well known for its outdoor lifestyle, and there are some great little day spas dotted around the Peninsula where you can unwind and rejuvenate your mind and your body.
The difference between a day spa and a beauty salon
Although the terms are often used interchangeably, and there is an overlap of services between the two, there are some differences between a day spa and a beauty salon that are worth keeping in mind when you are looking for a great place for relaxation.
The main difference between the two is that a beauty salon is usually used for one or two services ‒ a haircut or eyebrow waxing for example. A day spa on the other hand is an all-day experience where you are offered treatments such as massage, water therapy, float tanks and more.
Let’s take a look at some of the Peninsula’s best day spas.
