What if you could experience the ultimate pleasure of a luxurious massage whilst you relax and your everyday stress melts away with the skill application from a professional masseur? How about the sheer indulgence that comes from a day at the spa? This can be your reality if you sign up for a full day spa package.
There are certain daily stressors that increase the feeling of tension in our bodies. These can lead to increased aches and pains in the body. If you have ever experienced a tension headache, you know that the pain can limit your enjoyment of the everyday pleasures of life.
According to the Victoria State Government on its Better Health Channel, massage therapy can be used to prevent and treat several physical and psychological conditions including (1):
- Acute and chronic low back pain
- Muscle soreness
- High blood pressure
We would go out on a limb here and say that a good massage from a professional day spa is one of life’s necessities. Maybe not on the same scale as food and shelter, obviously, but it is one sure way to improve your wellbeing and the general quality of your life.
For most people, quality massage therapy means a quick vacation to Bangkok or Phuket. Thailand after all is the location for the best massages in the world. The good news is you do not need to jet all the way to Thailand for an excellent spa experience because right around the corner is 1028 Mornington Day Spa.

Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage is a full body massage. The masseur uses firm pressure in a bid to get at those deep layers of muscle. It is great if you are experiencing some sort of muscle soreness, then you should probably consider going for the deep tissue massage.
The remedial massage is for people who need some work on certain parts of their body. Basically, if you have a part of your body that is aching, such as lower back pain, a sore shoulder or a persisting headache, then the remedial massage might be the best option for you. (3)
If you are signing up for a remedial massage, going to just any day spa is not a good idea. You need to visit a day spa that has a professional that knows just what she is doing as this is a rather technical form of massage.
A lommi lommi massage is a full body massage that has its roots in Hawaiian culture. The masseur uses the whole body to focus on your wellbeing. A lommi lommi masseur might use his hands, fingers, elbows and knees as he dances around the massage table to deliver the ultimate relaxation to your body.
One of the services offered by 1028 Mornington Day Spa is athlete’s recovery massage. As every athlete knows, sore muscles and sprained ankles or wrists come with the territory. In order to get back to action and speed up recovery, massage has an important role to play. In fact, several coaches and sports physical therapists insist on regular massages for their athletes. Not only does a good massage work on sore muscles, it also keeps the body fluid and relaxed, which lessens the incidence of injury.
If you are an athlete or you have one as a charge, you don’t need to travel anywhere to get a good athlete’s recovery massage. You can choose the athlete’s recovery day spa package at our day spa in Mornington.
The tok sen massage is a traditional Thai massage. No, this is not the usual Thai massage that you see in most day spas, this is a very special Thai massage that only a few people know about. The masseur uses a special wooden hammer to pound gently along the back and body, eliciting a gentle vibration that eases tension and relaxes the muscle. Apple of 1028 Mornington Day Spa delivers tok sen massage in such a way that it clears negative energy and leaves you feeling good (6)
There are very few things better during pregnancy than a pregnancy massage, particularly when you start having those troublesome aches at the lower back. The hands of an expert masseur can bring such sweet relief. However, a woman’s body is delicate during pregnancy and it takes a really skilled professional to deliver a massage that gives relief without any additional complication.
A pregnancy massage is not like any other massage because the woman’s body needs to be properly supported and positioned so that the mother and the growing baby are both comfortable and safe. We take all these into consideration and work hard to ensure that our spa packages for pregnant women are always safe, comfortable and soothing.
Some benefits of a pregnancy massage (also known as a prenatal massage) include:
- Pain relief
- Improved circulation
- Relieves and reduces oedema
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Helps relieve insomnia
- Overall feeling of wellbeing
At 1028 Mornington Day Spa, our spa package for pregnancy massage is available for pre and post pregnancy stages.
Combination Oils Massage
Imagine the combination of a relaxing massage with the delicious scents of aromatherapy. The combination oil massage uses these two healing elements to soothe and restore vitality. This spa package combines several massage techniques, typically remedial, lommi lommi, and tok sen massages.
1028 Mornington Day Spa uses natural oils and works with them to deliver optimum benefit, some of which include:
- Soothing the senses
- Relaxing the muscles
- Boosting vitality
- Easing stress
- Increasing circulation
Reflexology is a specialized type of foot and hand massage that focuses on different spots. It works by applying pressure to various zones or areas of the hand and foot. Most reflexology practitioners focus on the feet because it is believed that it has a connection to the other parts of the body.
Reflexology is deeply soothing and relaxing, probably because we tend to put a lot of pressure and stress on our feet. Whatever the reason, don’t be surprised if you fall asleep during a reflexology session. It is that soothing.
Like most massage techniques, reflexology has several benefits including
- Soothing aches and pains
- Relieving tension
- Headache relief
- Elimination of toxins
- Boosts energy and vitality
- Increases energy levels
A shared experience heightens the pleasure and creates memorable memories that can last a lifetime. This spa package offers a romantic massage to couples, giving them the opportunity to get a relaxing and soothing massage together. It is a great way to bond.
The couple’s massage package at 1028 Mornington Day Spa is only available at weekends.
A facelift massage is a spa service that is new to the spa industry and not many day spas offer this service. However, it is one of the spa packages at 1028 Mornington Day Spa.
We offer a robust spa package, which includes facial treatments as well as ‘V Shape’ – Korean style facelift treatment.
Our facelift massage uses different techniques to give a light massage to the face. It focuses on the tissues in the face and rejuvenates the skin as well as the muscles, clearing up stress, tension and even wrinkles from the face. The rejuvenating power of this massage is why it is said to have anti-aging benefits.
After a stressful day or week, a facelift massage will help get rid of the tension, soothe away frown lines and improve your mood. It is also very helpful to those suffering from sinusitis.
A facial treatment is almost always synonymous with luxury. It is a wonderful way to get a bit of pampering after the rigours of the day. Not only does it leave the skin looking and feeling younger, it is relaxing and relieves stress. It also boosts circulation.
Interestingly, the facial is one of the most popular spa services at our day spa in Mornington. It works wonders for the client’s mood and is one way to dramatically boost your feeling of wellbeing.
Step in to 1028 Mornington Day Spa and spoil yourself.

A milk spa treatment is of immense benefit to the skin for many reasons. Not only does it nourish and soothe the skin, but it moisturises, hydrates, exfoliates and heals. Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce painful swellings.
Overall, you walk away with skin that looks and feels good.
One of the gifts you can give your body today is the benefits of a sauna experience.
Our day spa in Mornington offers the Infra Detox Sauna experience which is a healthy infrared sauna that is steam-less and uses the warmth of the sun’s energy for detoxification. According to the Australian Natural Health Mag, “Evidence shows sweat created in a dry or steam sauna contains about 97 per cent water, while the sweat of far-infrared sauna users contains only 80 per cent water and 20 per cent toxins.”
The magazine also lists some of the benefits of saunas to include:
- Increasing circulation
- Cleansing the skin
- Relieving muscle and rheumatic pain
- Strengthening the immune system
- Improves joint movement
- Acts as a stress release for tension
- Opens the pores and lets out toxins and impurities.
