You know when you meet someone for the first time and you get that feeling like you’ve known them for your whole life? That’s how I felt when I first met the owner of Temple Day Spa, Sharon. It’s like she could see right through me and into my soul. Deep, I know — but it’s true. We were instant friends so when I talk about her amazing day spa that she created, I can’t do that without telling you about her… she’s the reason why it is what it is.
Kind, genuine, funny, smart, and with truck loads of passion, Sharon is our perfect kind of person. The way she taps into how you’re feeling on the inside (even though on the outside you might be smiling and happy), is uncanny. Her selfless nature makes her a brilliant listener and boy-oh-boy has she listened to us blabber on over the years.
Working as a young single mama in the corporate world for over two decades, Sharon was very familiar with anxiety and the importance of self care. She wanted to create a space that was everything that she as a busy working mama needed. A warm, welcoming, relaxing day spa where people could come, feel safe, and let go of all their stresses and just BE. And so Temple Day Spa was born. “I just want everyone who steps through our door, to feel like they are being given a big warm hug and for them to feel worthy of being pampered.”
With its recent renovations, Temple Day Spa is even more luxurious! As you first step off Unley road and inside the door, you’ll immediately feel relaxed and leave all your stresses outside. Chances are Sharon or her gorgeous daughter Kristy will usher you into their cosy lounge where you’ll sip on warm tea, water or even bubbles if you wish. There’s a crackling fireplace so in winter, you actually won’t want to leave.
On the menu are things like Hot Stone Massages, Hydrating Facials, Glycocure Peels, Cellulite Treatments, Pregnancy Massages, Infrared sauna, Spa Pedis and Manis, Rainforest Body Ritual, Microdermabrasons, Dermafrac with Led Light Therapy… and that’s just entree! LOLS! I’m a stickler for the Temple Day Spa Massage — it’s sensational! Oh and I always get the Microderm facial which I regularly fall asleep in, it’s THAT relaxing.
“So many of my customers would come in for chats and tell me how tired they were and open up about their anxiety and I thought, well what if I can help with that?” So she put her idea into action and developed an exquisite range of Nest & Temple Smelling Salts. Made for the mind and body, they promote a sense of overall well-being while also providing anti-ageing benefits.
“I’m in my mid 40’s so I understand how difficult it can be to balance work and juggle life’s commitments, so I know that it can be hard to find time to look after yourself and keep your mind at ease. Which is why I created Nest & Temple… to keep you well and be the best you can be – both physically and mentally,” says Sharon.
We swear by these Smelling Salts and Body Butters and even keep them in the car to have a good whiff before we film or head into meetings! Oh and I forgot to mention, Sharon makes all her own unique recipes — isn’t she clever!
