I haven’t been to a spa in a while and I was long overdue, so a few weeks ago I visited Oxygen Medi Spa.
It was a little out of my neighborhood – but it was totally worth the trip. I only made one wrong turn getting there.
Okay two. But all that matters is that I got there.
It’s a cute little spot in Orleans. The atmosphere is so inviting and it has that spa smell. You know what I mean right? I just LOVE that smell.
Here is our mini interview with the fabulous staff at Oxygen Medi Spa.

I have a hard time relaxing. The only thing that usually works is running or when I workout at Greco. Now I finally have something that doesn’t involve sweating! I had the Relaxation Facial. When it was over I didn’t want to leave.
Jessica – talk our reader through the different steps of this facial.
For our Relaxation Facial I first start by making sure my client is comfortable and able to relax. I ask for any allergies or skin issues they may have.
First step of this facial is to cleanse the skin with a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt, makeup or oils on the surface of the skin with light circular movements. I rinse twice to make sure everything is removed properly.
Second step is to exfoliate; I used an enzyme clay mask that breaks down the skin gently without pulling or rubbing vigorously.
After about 5-10 minutes it is removed with a hot towel.
Third step is the face and décolleté massage used with a refined coconut oil so there will be no clogging of the clients’ pores and doesn’t leave a “greasy” residue. Skin is cleansed again.
Last step is a mask, I used the “Repair” Mask as it helps add deep hydration, regenerates and re-balances the skin. After it’s removed by a hot towel, we used a velvet cream to leave the skin nice and moisturized.
Shawna – you showed me the Alpha LED Capsule – as you could tell – I wasn’t ready to hop in and test it out. I am a little claustrophobic. But the capsule has so many benefits – explain a few of them.
The Alpha Wellness Spa Capsule has so many benefits that will help people naturally with light and heat therapy. We can help with post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, depression, anxiety, seasonal affective disorder, pain management, detox, weight loss, cellulite, full body collagen rebuilding, migraine tension and so much more.
The treatment protocol is 30-40 minutes relaxing in the bed, and most of our clients do tend to doze off to sleep, it is that relaxing. Your head is on the outside of the capsule (they do this so people don’t feel claustrophobic).
Shawna you have a whole range of services – including some for men. Can you highlight a few for our readers?
Men are actually taking great care of themselves. There is no treatment that we offer women only and men only. Men make up about 30% of our client database. They come in for ultrasonic liposuction, Alpha Wellness Spa Capsule, waxing, facials and of course our MAN-icures.
Shawna, this is totally off topic but how was it like meeting Monika Schnarre?
Great! She is really nice, and very tall! She is also the face for Latisse, to grow your own eyelashes, which we sell at the spa, so it was neat to meet her.
Jessica – we love to offer our readers tips – what are some basic skincare tips every woman should follow as part of a daily/nightly routine.
My main skincare tips I tell all my clients are two things – first, less is more.
You don’t need to do 7 steps every single night, keep it simple.
Second is exfoliate 2-3 times a week to help sloth off that dead skin to keep it looking fresh and smooth, you will see a change in about a month once you add that step to your cleansing and moisturizing routine.
Shawna – you have a monthly membership for facials – it would make an amazing Mother’s Day gift. Tell our readers about it – so they can tell their husbands and kids to buy it for them.
We have an amazing monthly membership for our facials which is only $59/month and this includes 1 facial of your choice per month:
- Relaxation Facial
- Renew Facial
- Oxygen Facial and/or Non Surgical Face Tightening
Any additional facial during the month is only at $59 extra. One great benefit is that we do extend the offer to anyone living in the same household. If mom has a membership, her daughter can come in one month with her member price.
