How old were you when you got your first massage? At Baby Spa Perth, some of the clients are literally only days old. The unique facility credits itself as “a sanctuary for babies (newborn to six months) and their parents” as they indulge in hydrotherapy sessions and baby massages. You’ll go gaga over clips of the infants bobbing around wearing the Baby Spa’s patented BUBBY, a specially designed floaty that gives the babies complete range of the water.

If you’re already looking up Baby Spa Perth to book an appointment for your little prince or princess, the spa is located in Australia.
The $85 hour-long session starts with a dip in the hydrotherapy pool and then the little ones are swaddled in a warm towel and taken off to receive a grapeseed oil massage by trained nurses and staff.
Sisters Kavita Kumar and Anita Yap opened the spa last year. “The spa provided a space where new parents can interact and share their experiences of birth in a safe and judgment-free environment,” Kumar, told Daily Mail Australia.
“We now offer packages of three, five, and 10 sessions, with a lot of clients experiencing the spa with their 'mother's group' on a weekly basis.”
According to Baby Spa Perth, the list of benefits for hydrotherapy include: Muscular and skeletal strength is increased through the water’s gentle resistance, the risk of jaundice three or four days after birth is lowered and it has positive effects on the digestive, circulatory systems, respiratory systems and cardiovascular systems. The massages aid in reducing the discomfort of constipation and colic, and promote relaxation (hellooo).
If you’re pregnant and already booking your travel Down Under for after your little one arrives, you must wait until they’re old enough — at least two days old.
