When an advertisement for a new day spa right around the corner from me popped up on Facebook I immediately made a reservation for my mother and I to go and try it out; especially seeing as there is 20% off your first visit!
Urban Fusion is a small Thai Day Spa that has opened up in Harrison. I must say I was a little sceptical when I first walked in, having been disappointed with small Day Spas before, but I needn't have worried.
The entry is a small but pleasant day spa looking foyer – in that, I mean it promotes the products used in the various treatments, smells of essential oils and there is calming music playing softly in the background. Upon entering we were met by our two friendly masseuses who immediately swapped our shoes for comfortable slippers and led us into our private rooms. I had called the day before to book my mother into an hour long Swedish massage with Jet and myself into a 30 minute Deep Tissue Massage with coconut oil with Kay.
Kay was very friendly and ensured that she knew exactly what I was after from the treatment before starting. I generally prefer firm massages and she was more than capable of providing the pressure I wanted and her techniques are very good for reliving tired and stressed muscles.
Once the treatment was over, I was led back out into the foyer and was given a glass of incredible iced tea to enjoy while I waited for my mother to finish. The two of us were very impressed with this little day spa and am sure to become regulars.
This is a gem for those of us who live in the far north of Canberra and I couldn't recommend it more strongly.
