The Experience: Calling all moms out there – grab your partners and make sure they read this post! Mother’s Day is almost upon us, but there’s still time for your mate to schedule a splendid outing for you at Zenana Spa and Wellness Center in Southeast Portland.
Zenana, taken from the Persian word for the room in the house where women gather and share experiences, caters to pregnant women and mothers. Their full list of spa services includes manicures, pedicures, massages, facials and body wraps. A friend and I recently enjoyed Toe Time for Two and the experience was divine. We relaxed and chatted in a room fit for Persian royalty, while our feet were buffed, massaged, polished and made beautiful.
In addition to the spa services, Zenana offers chiropractic care, craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, and naturopathic care. They also have lactation services, parenting groups, and numerous classes, from infant massage and baby sign language to yoga and Mamalates (a Pilates-style class geared specifically toward moms).
If your mate fails to get the message, go ahead and schedule your own “me-time” at Zenana. You deserve it.
