Temple Time

Carlie Wacker preaches the benefits of regular worshipping at your local day spa.

Our body is a temple – you must treat it as such – and by that I mean you must religiously attend a day spa. This is not a joke; this is serious health and beauty advice from a woman with a lot of day spa experience (and an ageing temple).

There are so many legitimate health reasons to visit a day spa. The most powerful reason is that it will instantly relieve stress. Just the thought of being in a tranquil environment like that decreases the heart rate and sends the brain signals of relaxation.

The anti-ageing benefits are obvious, of course you will slow down the ageing process with proper skin care and a regular facial. Don’t you just love the feeling of a fresh, rejuvenated face following a treatment!

Many researchers will tell you that weight loss is the payoff for regular hydrotherapy, sauna sessions and lymphatic massage. There is also the increased circulation and blood flow that comes with a jolly good massage and over time that could assist with reducing the appearance of cellulite. May I add that tired aching muscles appreciate the pampering and in the long run regular massage will keep you mobile.

Varicose veins can be avoided with leg massage and after a day at the spa your sleep will be the best you have ever had.

So, what are you waiting for my friends? We are spoilt for choice in Noosa when it comes to day spas and I have tried most
of them so here is the low down on the temples of relaxation, rehabilitation and really good fun.



– Anti-ageing

– Increased circulation

– Improved sleep

– General well being

– Happiness

Ikatan Balinese Day Spa is award-winning escapism at its finest. Nestled amongst a tropical rainforest you will be transported to an exotic destination with your senses delighted at every turn. The sound of nature, the smell of essential oils, the first-class service – it is a holiday in itself.

Nu Yu at the Noosa Marina is a waterside wonder – you will be set adrift on seaside bliss as your pampered with any one of many soothing treatments. Water laps beneath you as the worries of the world melt away and reveal a new you!

Award-winning Stephanie’s Ocean Spa is a heavenly haven set on the Noosa hillside at Peppers Resort. A luxe experience from the moment you are greeted at the door. The rain ritual overlooking the national park is one of the most tranquil and grounding encounters I have ever had.

Noosa Springs Day Spa is another delicious option for temple time and its location is the first thing that stands out – you will meander past the lush gold greens, stunning clubhouse of the golf resort into a tropical paradise – a wonderland of hydro pools and beautifully appointed treatment rooms with experienced staff that make every visit one to remember.

We are spoilt for choice in Noosa when it comes to luxurious day spa experiences.”

My recommendation is to do the absolute best thing for your body and soul and try them all. I also applaud the idea of getting the girls together for a pre-Christmas celebration in the name of good health. My husband will find his gift voucher for the full spa treatment under the Christmas tree and, if he is reading this, so will I!
