There is always more to do than time to do it. This makes taking time for ourselves, especially when faced with so many daily chores, a challenge.
In fact, relaxing may even require we make a plan. For many, this plan involves heading to a day spa in Brisbane for a relaxing massage or body treatment.
Where as a massage by itself is a nice break from a routine, a day spent at the spa however can be so much more…. helping to raise you above the daily grind.
We also had a big request for a list on our top pregnancy massages in Brisbane.
