Our trip to Butter Day Spa, Part 2


Last week, we gave you a taste of our experience at Butter Day Spa, located at 255 Hope Street (right by the OMAC!). We wrote about the beautiful blooming tea ceremony and the 5-Flowers Facial, which were both parts of the Bali Retreat. One writer got to indulge in the include the Bali Body Treatment, while another enjoyed the Spa-Chi Body Therapy Session.

The Bali Body Treatment was exactly was the doctor ordered for the stressed-out student who had the opportunity to enjoy it. Sixty minutes long, the hands-on massage incorporated beautiful-smelling Cinq Mondes Balinese balms and mists. It’s a proprietary treatment, created by the staff at Butter Day Spa; as such, you know they’ve crafted an experience designed to make you relax. A key part of the Bali Body Treatment was the 5-Flowers Cleansing Water, which was sprayed on the legs, arms, and back at various points of the treatment (it was super refreshing and felt like raindrops). This is followed by the use of the Flowers Cleansing Balm—its silky texture is supplemented by kneading that helps to break through though those knots. The treatment includes kneading of the back, shoulders, and legs, as well as a foot massage (!) at the end, which was a delight. The beautiful smells of the balms and the oils contributed to a beautiful sensory experience overall. The stressed-out writer left her session feeling refreshed, well-rested, and de-stressed.


A blend of Reiki, Chakra work, and traditional western knot and stress-relieving techniques, Spa-Chi indulges both the mind and body. Perfect for the student-athlete or recreational runner, the sixty-minute-long treatment diminishes soreness and pays attention to knotted muscles. Butter Day Spa offers two variations on the treatment: one that focuses primarily on relaxation and another, which focuses on removing knots. Depending on whether you’ve been hitting the books or the gym more frequently, you can choose between the Spa-Chi treatments and customize a fitting experience. Butter Day Spa’s trained professionals use signature hand pressure techniques and energy work on the back, shoulders, legs, and face and spend more time on areas in need of special attention.  The soothing oils and relaxing ambiance contributed to the blogger’s heavenly and one-of-a-kind experience for the mind, body, and soul.

All great things, right? Well, three lucky student winners who entered Butter’s contest last week have the opportunity to experience one of the three treatments we’ve covered! The winners are:

Natasha Blackadar: Spa-Chi or Deep Spa-Chi
Carly Risman: Bali Body Treatment
