book a massage at home service

Home salon services are increasingly in demand in Dubai, which has led many salons to offer quality spa-at-home services. People can avail these services in the comfort of their homes for a rejuvenating and relaxing experience.

While it is quite easy to get a massage at home in Dubai, many people find it difficult to take time out for a professional session. They can create their own spa-like experience whenever they get some time for themselves.

Creating a Perfect Spa Day

The best way to unwind and freshen up is to treat oneself to a perfect spa day, and what better way than to create the magic in the comfort of your home! To make it more fun, you can also invite your close friends, or have it with your partner.  Some of the tips mentioned below can help create the perfect spa atmosphere at home with your personal choice of services.

Set the Mood

Personal care not only provides you the necessary downtime, it also gives you confidence. To make it a great experience, setting the mood is an essential part, which you can do by having some nice and relaxing music in the background. Next take out your candles as scented candles and scent diffusers instantly lift the mood and contribute to aromatherapy. Adding essential oils such as lavender oil has a very calming effect on the nerves.

Gear & Accessories

Recreating a spa experience at home calls for the right gear and accessories. Clean bathrobes, fresh towels, and a few pairs of comfortable slippers should be in place before starting the spa routine.


Set up a refreshments corner for a more luxurious experience. Choose the drinks according to preference. Tea and coffee stations work well during winter, as they provide the warmth needed to keep cozy during spa treatments. Healthier options like infused water are suitable for hot weather conditions. You can put fruits like berries or citrus and certain vegetables like cucumber and mint. Infused water is very refreshing and helps keep you hydrated.

Engage in Mindful Activities 

Practice deep breathing exercises or guided meditation to calm your mind and reduce stress. You can also try gentle yoga stretches or take a few moments to write in a journal, expressing your thoughts and feelings. These activities can help create a sense of balance and promote overall well-being.

A Few Spa Treatment Options

The type of spa treatments should be chosen according to the requirements. Some treatments require more prep time than others, therefore it is a good idea to make a list of all the required items in advance to ensure availability. The following types of spa treatments can be done at home with the appropriate tools and products:

  • Manicure / Pedicure
  • Facial
  • Hot Oil Hair Treatment

DIY Manicure/ Pedicure

DIY manicure/pedicure requires the following items

  •  Manicure/Pedicure kit that includes all tools required during the process such as a cuticle pusher, nail buffer, nail filer, nail clipper, a set of small scissors, and a cuticle clipper
  •  Polisher
  • Granulated scrub
  •  Massage cream
  • Pumice


Applying bleach or a polisher is an optional step and can be omitted in the manicure and pedicure procedure. Those who prefer bleaching their hands and feet should first apply the polisher for at least 15 minutes for visible results. Next, soak your hands and feet in warm water for about ten minutes to soften the cuticles and rough skin. Scrub thoroughly to remove dead skin (use pumice under the feet and on heels), cut the nails, and shape them. The next step is to push the cuticles back and cut extra cuticles. Buffer the nails for shiny, fresh-looking nails.

DIY Facials 

The list of items required for a DIY facial is as follows.

  • Cleansing cream
  • Scrub
  • Massage cream
  • Mask
  • Moisturizer 


Clean the face using cleansing creams to remove all impurities and prepare it for the treatment ahead. Next, apply a good quality scrub that gently exfoliates the skin to bring out the natural radiance. Gently massage your face with a massage cream to enhance blood flow. Afterward, remove the products with wet sponges and apply a hydrating mask for fifteen minutes. After removing the mask, moisturize the skin.

Hot Oil Hair Treatment

The following products are required for hot oil hair treatment.

  •  Organic hair oil (you can choose from a variety of hair oils such as mustard oil or argan oil)
  •  Small and large microwave-friendly containers
  •  Warm water
  • Towel
  •  Shampoo and conditioner


Warm water in a large container. Pour some oil into the small container and dip it into the large container. When the oil reaches the desired temperature, apply it to the scalp and length of the hair using your hands. Then comb the hair to distribute the oil evenly. Cover the head with a towel or a plastic shower cap for fifteen to thirty minutes. After that, shampoo hair to remove oil and apply conditioner if required.

Other Treatments

Though massage is an excellent way of relaxing muscles which enhances blood flow and helps in stress release, it requires professional help. There are a variety of spa services in Dubai that provide home services. They are certified and experienced professionals and usually bring their own massage tables and other essential products to your home.

It is always a great idea to unwind and pamper yourselves after a long and busy week. If you want to have a relaxing massage, visit ServiceMarket and book a massage at home service. There are other options as well if you want to indulge yourself. All you have to do is make time according to your schedule, and enjoy the session.
