The Rainbow after the Storm!


Posted May 4, 2020

With the COVID-19 stay at home mandate coming to an end, we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Today, the U.S. Air Force and Louisiana Air National Guard conducted a special flyover as hundreds of healthcare workers and thousands of residents gathered outside to watch two massive B-52 “Stratofortresses” and two F-15 Strike Eagles zoom over the Big Easy.  It was a special tribute to the frontline workers fighting the coronavirus outbreak in Louisiana, and a spectacular event that gave hope for brighter days ahead, much like a rainbow at the end of a treacherous storm.

In addition to falling back into a normal routine, there are things that I long for such as dining in my favorite restaurants, attending festivals and dancing the night away with my best girls. There are simple things that I miss like visiting my beauty salon, nail salon and most importantly, my favorite automated spa, Planet Beach.  I may be biased because I work for the company, but I can’t wait to indulge in one of the many relaxing and rejuvenating services that Planet Beach offers.  Although I love them all, these are my absolute favorites:

HOTWORX– There is no better way to detoxify, tighten and tone your body then with the HOTWORX infrared sauna workout.   I frequent this service at least once per week, but plan to increase the frequency once the quarantine ends. I’m sure I’m not alone, but I’ve consumed more calories than I should have during this COVID-19 shut down and I’m ready to burn them off.

UV Light– The Vitamin D that I receive from moderate exposure to UV elevates my mood and gives me a little added glow.  Just the right exposure boosts my level of serotonin and makes me feel calm and focused.  Although I’ve made my best effort to get some fresh air during this pandemic, this is one service that I can’t wait to use.

Massages– Planet Beach offers an array of automated massage services that help reduce stress and fatigue, relieve pain, increase circulation and improve levels of energy and alertness.  Massages are a powerful way to improve your overall health and wellbeing and I can’t wait to get mine!

As more and more states begin to lift the stay at home mandate, the Planet Beach locations will begin to open their doors and welcome their members to partake in the rejuvenating services that they’ve come to love.  If you’ve never visited a Planet Beach and would like to try a complimentary service, log on to to find a location near you. However, if you are a member, we would love to hear about your favorite products and services. We love to hear from our members!  Stay safe and we’ll see you soon.
