We LOVE to pamper!!

Valentine’s is that time when we’re reminded to think about that special person in our lives. How can we show our love and appreciation for that person?

If you’re looking for a way to pamper your loved one, Oasis has some great options.

One option is something the two of you can enjoy together: couples massage. Each of you will have your own table and your own massage therapist, but you’ll be in the same private room so you can relish in this unwind time together.

We do have a Valentine’s special with a special twist on our couples massage. You’ll have an hour-long couples massage in a candlelit room sprinkled with rose petals, with gift bag, rose, and treats along the way. It’s $179 with limited availability Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. (Call 402-964-2267 to book.)

Looking to pamper yourself or a loved one? Try our Valentine’s Spa Package. You or your loved one will spend 2.5 hours getting pampered from head to toe with this package! It includes a decadent Chocolate Facial, an exfoliating Champagne & Rose Body Scrub, and a Champagne & Rose Pedicure (done the Oasis way!). The price is $165, and again you can call 402-964-2267 to book your appointment. (Available through Feb. 28, or while supplies last.)

The timeless gift: an Oasis gift card. These beauties never expire, and go toward any service or product. Visit our online store to purchase now!

However you end up spending your Valentine’s Day, we hope you feel loved and celebrated!

Spa pedicures – steamed towel delight

We get asked a lot why we do pedicures but not manicures at Oasis.

A few years ago, we did offer both. One of the main reasons we no longer offer manicures has to do with the ethos of our spa.

Oasis is a relaxing place. We want you to come in and enjoy some downtime. No work, no kids, no screens. Just you. And us pampering you.

We found that offering manicures added more of the go-go-go to the atmosphere of our spa—precisely the thing we wanted to eliminate.

We reevaluated our service list a few years ago. We decided our services needed to excel above other spas, and they needed to help our clients relax.

In the end, we decided to eliminate our manicures and to revamp our pedicures. We just aren’t a nail spa. Other places can do that. Speedy in and out paint jobs. It’s just not us. We don’t have a bank of chairs with foot tubs. We’re not about efficient pedicures.

Our revamped pedicures became much more focused on relaxation. Now, we have our clients lie on a massage table in a private room. They get a cooling eye mask as their feet are treated with steamed towels and spa-quality products. Slowly. Soothingly.

We currently offer two options in our pedis:

Spa pedicure – a full hour, $45.

Classic pedicure – 45 minutes, $35.

Both include filing, cuticle/callus work, foot massage and polish. The spa pedicure includes a stronger exfoliating scrub and a bonus moisturizing mask.

And for the month of January, we are offering peppermint pedicures, so you can enjoy not only the most peaceful pedicure in Omaha, but also that beloved wintertime scent.

What to Expect from a Massage

We know it can be intimidating to come in for a massage if you’ve never had one before (and sometimes even if you have). We put together this little video to show you what to expect.

And if you’re in the Omaha, NE area, Oasis welcomes you, whether it’s your first massage or your 50th!

Spa specials Dec-Feb!

We’re happy to announce three months worth of great spa deals! 


December: 3 facials for $180, or 6 for $360

Buying the package will save you $9 per facial! But the facial series must be scheduled in the recommended 4-6 week timeframe.

During the next few months, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and exfoliated. This helps keep the water-to-oil balance in your skin.

Turning on the heat in your home and car dehydrates your skin (sucks out the moisture) during the winter months.

Regular facials during these months with your at home regiment is the best way to keep your skin in tip-top shape all year round!

  

January: Peppermint Pedis 

Enjoy that beloved wintertime scent in our powerful pedicure.

 

February: all-spa spa package

A great way to try out three of our spa services! More details to come!

A little bit about … Trish Krabbenhoft

Trish has been at Oasis since November 2008, after she graduated from the Omaha School of Massage. She is practiced in Swedish, sports, neuromuscular, hot stone, and myofascial deep-tissue. She is very good at relaxation and pregnancy massage.

Trish became interested in massage when she realized how unfulfilled she was sitting at a computer. “You should see my stress-free, peaceful office now!” she says.

“I have always enjoyed helping people, but it makes my day when a client says how much better they feel after a massage.” Trish adds, “My ideal day at work is when a client has their first massage in their life, and they wonder why they waited so long.”

Celebrating 9 years!

When Oasis prepared to open its doors, the building needed a facelift.

Lindsey and Carolyn ripped up carpet that ran down the hallway. Never has carpet been so thoroughly glued down, and never has she had such a workout, Lindsey says.

Before installing laminate flooring in the hallway, Lindsey spray-painted the ceiling tiles a cream color so they’d match the green we all know and love. If you took out the laminate, you’d find cream-colored rectangles on the concrete.

That was all nine years ago.

A lot of footsteps have passed up and down that hallway in nine years.

As we celebrate our anniversary, we wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to all of you who have been a part of these nine years. We are truly grateful to have been able to serve you, and we hope we’ve enriched your lives in the process.

A little bit about … Bobbie Hayek

Bobbie Hayek is a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), and he’s been at Oasis since April of 2007. His specialties are Swedish, Thai, neuromuscular, and sports massage.

At a young age, Bobbie was told he was good at giving shoulder rubs. That and his passion for helping people fueled his decision to become an LMT. And he loves it. He says, “I don’t feel like it’s work at all. And I love when people say how good after their massage.”

A little bit about … Amy Lee

Amy Lee fun factsAmy Lee is Oasis’ office manager, starting in her role in early 2010—though she’s been with us as a client since 2005!

Amy is skilled at welcoming, scheduling, organization, and work-flow management. She’s especially good at remaining calm in chaos, and moving to solution.

She loves meeting new people and working with skilled service providers who care about their clients. It’s also really good to know she’s a small part of someone taking good care of themselves.

An avid proponent of self-care, Amy can often be heard saying, “You can’t give what you’re not getting!” She recommends a weekly massage—or as regular as you can manage. “60 minutes of self-care goes a long way,” she says. (And, yes, she does practice what she preaches.)

4-year-old’s drawing of LMT

Lindsey’s daughter, Gracyn, had an assignment in 2011. She was supposed to draw a community helper. She chose a massage therapist. (Ok, ok. She’s a little biased—both her parents are LMTs.) But we found the drawing again, and wanted to share it and the artist’s statement with you.

My community helper is a massager. She massages people's backs(?) cramps(?) and she has a table so people can lay down on the table.
