I recently attended an event at the REME office in Santa Monica for a preview of what REME App has to offer. The event was appropriately called Request, Restore Repeat – A self-care afternoon with REME. The REME App is the first app of it’s kind to offer on demand custom massages and stretch therapy. From the app you can request a 60, 75 or 90 minute massage, a 30 or 60 minute back to back massage for two or, 45 minutes of stretching. Once you have downloaded the app you can request the service you want and in less than an hour an expert will arrive at your door! You can also book your services 48 hours in advance and every expert is vetted and certified so you can rest assure that you will receive excellent service from a complete professional in the comfort of your home, office or hotel room.
If you have been following me recently you know that I am all about finding the time with my busy schedule for self-care. This event had my name written all over it! I arrived for the event tired, anxiety-ridden and stressed out from a long week of LIFE. I was excited to learn about the REME App, which is focused on self-care through relaxation on demand but, I never imagined I would leave this event so relaxed and happy.
The REME office was set up like a full on spa and every room in the office was filled with a calming scent, massage tables and candles. Every REME expert I met was polite and very attentive. We were offered a preview of REME’s services and I was completely comfortable the entire time.
The afternoon began with with an assisted stretching session. During this session I stretched out muscles I didn’t know I had and by the end of it the stress tension in my neck and shoulders had disappeared and I felt completely relaxed. I think stretching is my new jam!
We moved on to a preview of Reiki. If you don’t know what Reiki is don’t feel bad because I literally googled Reiki before attending the event. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist (in this case a REME expert) can channel energy into the patient by means of touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotion well-being. Unlike the stretching session this was a lay there and don’t do anything but relax session and that is exactly what I did. After stretching my body was relaxed and after the Reiki I felt like my energy and emotional health was restored. In the middle of the session my mind kind of went blank and I felt an overwhelming sense of peace that I am now still basking in. Although Reiki is not a service that is currently offered through the REME App alone, many of the experts incorporate Reiki in their massage therapy so you get the best of both worlds!
The last service we previewed was a massage. The expert who performed my massage was able to pin point the tension in my shoulders and worked his way through five layers of muscles that I didn’t even know I had. It was amazing and I can’t wait to book my first massage with the REME App.
After previewing REME’s amazing services we were treated to cupcakes and Kombucha floats made with Carmela ice cream. Talk about relaxing and indulging.
The REME App is available for download on Apple App Store or Google Play. The app will allow you to check whether or not REME experts travel to your area at this time. I highly recommend this service.
A big thank you to REME for having us at this fabulous event and for the thoughtful parting-gift.
