Unlike South East Asia, massages and spa treatments are not a speciality in Europe and can be very pricey. You won’t get a treatment for both hot spa and a full body massage for under $20 here! I am now a student, so casually spending money for treats like massages is no longer on my agenda.
Being the lucky girl I am, I was bestowed with the lovely gift of a full spa treatment from my amazing friends for my birthday! Perfect.

The average price of a massage in Paris is about 40 Euros for one hour. I went for a massage nearby my school in the 3eme when I arrived as I had some serious tension after my flight, it was good but not worth that much! I guess the prices include the high prices of rent for business here in Paris! What can you do?
My birthday gift was a voucher was for a 3 hour session with a full body massage at the fancy Aquamoon Spa in Vendome, Paris near Opera.

The staff were great, super friendly and professional and I loved the ambience of the place!
I first went and relaxed in the hot pools which were in a circular room with a big painting of a moon in the night sky above it. Afterwards, I spent some time in the steam room to relax and unwind.
I was then called by the masseuse for my massage. First, I was asked to choose from a selection of oils which I wanted for my massage. The massage was everything! Just what I needed to go into the new year!
After the massage, you get to relax and unwind in the dreamy Recovery Room. I didn’t just recover with a cup of green tea, I fell fast asleep for about an hour!
Aquamoon was great, and I defintely recommend it for those wanting a good spa treatment to unwind in Paris! On a last note, it’s not cheap and you can choose individual treatments instead of a full package. They offer other treatments such as manicures, tanning sessions and some skin treatments which looked interesting.
