Baby Spas Are All The Rage! At Least In Australia

(PCM) We are curious to see whether or not the latest Australian spa trend will pick up over here in the U.S., as it is definitely a bit unique. The life of a newborn baby can be a fairly relaxing one already, but the new Baby Spa Perth wants to make it even more relaxing for newborns.

They are offering a variety of spa service for newborn babies ages six days to six months old. The services include infant massages and various hydrotherapy treatments. The hydrotherapy consists of placing the baby in a warm bath for up to 30 minutes using a neck flotation device adorably referred to as a “Bubby”.

We are sure that the spa has met all the safety protocols to stay operational, however something about the “Bubby” attached to the baby’s necks doesn’t appear all that safe to us! However, new parents are loving the spa idea and the babies themselves for the most part appear to be having a great time.

According to the Baby Spa Perth website, “One of the initial benefits you will observe is that your baby will be able to move around freely in warm water, which is impossible to do on land at a very young age due to gravity and constant constraints from bassinets, swaddles, clothing and pushchairs. Secondly, as your baby moves against the resistance of the water, their musculature and skeletal strengthens as the spine unfolds. Hydrostatic pressure of water on your baby’s body will result in the deepening of his/her breathing. This pressure also stimulates their circulatory system.”

Well, if they say so! A spa package at Baby Spa Perth will set you back about $85 and lasts for about 45 minutes.

Nail Salon Angers Customers (And The Internet) With Extra Charge For Overweight People

(PCM) A Tennessee nail salon, Rose Nails in Frayser, has found themselves in hot water after a customer posted an image online of a sign hanging in their shop saying that they charge more money for pedicures to overweight customers. The offensive sign in question read, “”Sorry, but if you are overweight, pedicures will be $45 due to service fees for pedicurists. Thank you!”. Customers were understandably outraged and once the image of the sign was posted online the rest of the internet became just as angered.

We just want to know what process the salon plans to use to determine if a customer fits the standard of being overweight or not. How would they even begin to go about figuring that out without literally offending everyone? That’s the biggest mystery. It’s not like you can just go walking up to a potential customer and say ‘Oh, excuse me. You look overweight. Would you mind weighing in before getting in the pedicure chair?”. Umm no way! If a nail salon employee were to ever say such a thing to us, we would be completely and totally offending and take our business elsewhere immediately.

When Memphis area news station WREG stopped by the salon in question the sign had already been removed and the salon owner claims that the sign was never posted up in his establishment. The customer who posted the picture online begs to differ, however we can’t say were blame the salon owner for denying it given all the backlash. The shop owner claims the picture could be from any shop in the area. He also went on to say that he had considered putting up a similar sign, but decided against it, instead he just refuses service to severely overweight customers.

The salon owner told the news station, It’s difficult for technicians to give them pedicures and he’s had broken chairs in the past which it hurts his bottom line. He said he’s had chairs broken twice which has cost him $2,000 to $2,500. Still sounds like a slippery slope to us.
