Update: At this time Robin is not doing her Mobile Spa business. She is now offering massages and facials on her property in Kapaa. Call her for details.
Have you ever thought about adding a Kauai spa experience to your time on the Garden Island? There are a few spas on the island, but how about if the spa came to you? Recently I was introduced to Robin Sheldon, owner and operator of Mobile Spa Kauai. Once a month a friend of mine invites Robin to her home for an hour and a half massage/facial treatment. She schedules herself and two other friends (a spa party!). I was lucky enough to be one of the “others” last month, and I can tell you first hand that it is a heavenly experience.
The first hour is a massage from head to toe. Following that is a wonderful facial, complete with warm scented towels, essential oils, a facial steamer, calming music and more. I can just imagine having this experience with the sound of the ocean in the background! Don’t plan on getting much accomplished after these 90 minutes, however, because your body and mind will be in complete relaxation mode.
From Robin’s website:
“A highlight of coming to Kauai always includes a mobile spa session with Robin! Robin makes the entire experience easy and comfortable, and at the location of your choosing. All you need to do is show up! My friends and family love to schedule spa days with Robin and each person has a full day to pamper, relax, read, nap and enjoy the serene and soothing sounds of Kauai while we take turns having our treatments with Robin. She develops a loyal following and doesn’t necessarily need to advertise since she takes such good care of her clients, they can’t help but rave about her and refer to their friends and families too.”
Robin has years of experience. She was Lead Esthetician at the Alexander Day Spa at the Kauai Marriott for 15 years, working there over 20 years, including being a Senior Massage Therapist, Supervisor, and Educator of an Apprenticeship program in Esthetics.
Her background education includes majoring in Psychology at UCI , licensed and certified in Cosmetology and Massage Therapy and specialized training in Oncology Massage in Davis, California. Her specialized Oncology Massage incorporates modified massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment. It promotes reduction of anxiety, depression, pain, nausea, and insomnia.
