Helpful Tips to Stay Balanced During COVID-19 Times

Sanctuary Spa At-Home Tips & DIY

In these challenging times, Sanctuary Spa’s Licensed Massage Therapist Eric would like to share a few tips to help us all through these challenging times:

Staying mentally stable.

With all that’s going on it’s very important to stay mentally stable. At this point, there is no time limit or guarantee when this crisis will end. Most of us are used to working and having a daily routine. A healthy productive positive routine keeps our minds occupied and gives us purpose and a sense of worth and peace. It’s essential that we keep positive and proactive, for it keeps our mind and spirit engaged and flowing. With the implementation of social distancing and modified work schedules, it’s easy to fall into depression anxiety and despair. Create your new routine balancing responsibilities and positivity.   READ MORE >

Summer Spa-cation!

Sabrina Spa Notes

A common topic of conversation as we come upon and dip into summertime is vacation, vacation, vacation. Where are you going? When are you going? How are you going? All of the things vacation! Even if you don’t have children, summertime just seems like a natural time to take a break. But what happens if you don’t have time to get away? Whether work, the kid’s schedules, or out of town visitors are keeping you from leaving Houston this summer, Sanctuary Spa has some great options for a spa-cation.   READ MORE >

Sarah Spa Notes, Spa Stories, Technician Bio

March is officially known as Women’s History Month — dedicated to recognizing the success of women and their incredible contributions to society. At Sanctuary Spa, we believe women should feel empowered to lift each other up and celebrate ever day, not just the big wins, but also the small acts of courage that help define and shape our gender. In honor of this and our 35th anniversary coming up, we’d also like to announce that 3% of our sales in the month of March will be donated to Dress for Success Houston.   READ MORE >

Kim Bady’s Journey to the Houston Marathon

Sabrina Spa Notes, Spa Stories, Technician Bio

The Chevron Houston Marathon is a big deal! Since 1972, this run has been inspiring Houstonians to take on new challenges and bring awareness to causes that matter to them. I admire all of the great athletes (33,000 of them!) that train for months leading up to the marathon to finish this great race.

This year, our very own Kim Bady has trained extensively to participate in the 2019 Chevron Houston Half Marathon. Not only is she running, but she’s running for a reason. The Run for a Reason Charity Program works with 64 nonprofit organizations. Last year, they raised over $1.8M! We are so proud of her. I sat down with Kim to ask her a few questions about her journey and understand which charity she is supporting.   READ MORE >

Sanctuary Spa’s Commitment to You in the New Year

Sabrina Spa Notes
2019 goals list with notebook, cup of coffee over wooden desk

Another year has passed, and as 2018 comes to close, we encourage you to reflect on lessons learned and your successes. Look back on the rewarding experiences and moments of incredible growth you encountered. The upcoming year is your chance to start fresh and renew your commitment to yourself – mind, body, and spirit. Self-care is at the center of your resolutions, and Sanctuary Spa is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

For a longtime, I refused to participate in the entire “New Year’s Resolution” game. I viewed it as a way to focus on all the things I did bad that led to creating all of these unachievable goals that I ended up breaking a month into the year and furthermore, didn’t even glance at for the rest of the year! In recent years though, I have circled back around to participating in setting these kinds of goals again, understanding that I want to be accountable to myself and always focus on being better today than I was yesterday.   READ MORE >
