Mobile Spa brings feminine healing at home and at events
By Bridgette M. Redman
Treasure Thompson knows how difficult it can be to travel through Los Angeles to find the wellness services you need. That’s why she bought and renovated a 35-foot bus and takes the luxury of NuEnergySpa on the streets after having to close her shop front spa when the pandemic broke out.
“I felt these services were needed,” said Thompson. “People contacted me and asked when I would be available and how I could create pandemic-proof service.”
Thompson, who is nicknamed the yoniologist, specializes in vaginal wellness and offers services like a yoni steam bath or a vaginal mask. (Yoni is the Indian word for female genitalia.) Those who enter the mobile spa can also experience a cupping massage, a pink Himalayan salt chamber, teeth whitening, cold mist color therapy or an ionic detoxification.
Their plan started with pen, paper, and a square drawing. Neither she nor the person converting the bus had any other ideas to fall back on – Thompson was the first person to do so. They worked back and forth, changed things, tried to make things more efficient, discussed everything she wanted on the bus.
“Without a toilet, there is no service to women,” Thompson said. “You have to have running water. I also love to have organic and alcoholic drinks depending on the time of the event, so I had a bar installed on the bus. I have a photo station in the front of the bus so you can have a nice moment for Instagram. “
It wasn’t the first time Thompsons had provided services over a mobile bus. She has children and bought them a game bus that has six televisions and video game systems. She also saw that there were trucking services for men like barber shops, but she wanted something for women.
“I really wanted to bring a feminine healing experience that could come to you,” Thompson said. “It is difficult for many women to travel. We have children, we do a lot at home. We have to have our ladies night at home. It will be nice to have something that can come to you so that you don’t have to go far. You don’t have to travel to luxurious surroundings, it comes to you. “
During her research, Thompson came across the word “sparty”, which is often used in Europe for spa parties. Most of these were for facials and nail packages, so Thompson wanted to do something different.
Some of their Sparty experiences include “Deluxe Sistars Spa Experience,” “Bridal Sparty,” and “Not Seniors Just Sexier,” and range from two and a half to five hours. The bus can accommodate up to six people for a spa party (plus service provider).
Thompson will also be taking the bus to various events and locations in LA for walk-up service for people.
Promoting the Health Benefits of Yoni Steaming
In addition to providing spa services, Thompson sees herself as an educator on vaginal wellness that many people feel uncomfortable about. She has newsletters and a YouTube channel, but her main focus is on one-on-one conversations with people.
“We already know it’s an awkward conversation,” Thompson said. “I’m not humble to myself, but people feel more comfortable when someone who is attractive tells them something uncomfortable. If I can sit down and comfortably talk about vaginal discharge and smells, or if I’m itchy and have evidence that these things work, believe me. “
Thompson said she focuses on the educational aspect of things because she wants people to know if they are receiving services from her or someone else.
“You can do this at home or come to me for more experience,” Thompson said. “Coming by bus is a sisterly bond experience. You can put on the clothes, sit on the steaming thrones, relax, and mingle with the people. It is a connecting thing. “
Thompson explained that yoni vaping has been around for centuries. There is evidence of its existence in China, Haiti, and Africa. The herbal mixture she uses contains rose petals, lavender, feverfew, rosemary, mugwort, marigold, albizia, oregano, safflower, turmeric, basil and aloe.
She said steaming provides vaginal lubrication and different herbs have different benefits.
“There are many holistic, organic benefits to using herbal steam,” Thompson said. “An open-minded person who is open to trying alternative methods will receive these natural benefits.”
She pointed out that these herbal remedies have not been medically proven, but she has seen their benefits since childhood and her family relied on a book of remedies. In addition to the holistic / health benefits, there are also rejuvenating and relaxing benefits.
“It feels really good,” said Thompson. “We like to be relaxed. Why shouldn’t we have a warm, steamy mist on our vagina and have healing effects at the same time? It’s an amazing experience and it doesn’t have any ill effects where it hurts you. I have a feeling that every woman should try it. “
Mobile Spa offers several distinctive services
While yoni vaping is popular with Thompson’s guests, it’s not the only service she offers. The bus has an area for guests to lie down in and she can focus on one part of the body – arms, legs, back, torso, or face – and offer cupping.
She uses silicone cups instead of the glass cups. It has four different sizes that are used on different parts of the body. She first applies an emollient to make it easier to vacuum the body. She uses it to soothe cellulite, even out skin tone, and improve blood circulation.
Ionic detox is another service that she can offer up to two people at the same time. They put their feet in mini tubs with single-use plastic liners. Ions are placed in the water tub and belts are placed around the guest’s stomach or wrist. It detoxifies the body in a service that can take 10 to 30 minutes. The water in the tub changes color depending on what the body is detoxifying.
“If you have a yeast infection in your vagina, there will be white cheesy particles in the water,” Thompson said. “When it’s brown, you detoxify tobacco. If there are red spots, you may have blood clots that are shaking out. Whatever you detoxify, it will actually show up in the water and I have a table that means every color on the bus. “
The color therapy with cool mist is performed in the pink Himalayan salt room of the mobile spa. The guest can change any color at will with a remote control. Thompson said that different colors have different healing effects and there is a cool mist spray that guests can control because it can get warm.
Thompson offers three different vaginal jelly masks that are placed on the vulva: a 24-carat gold mask, a pink mask, and a lace mask. The masks look like panty liners and lie over the vulva down to the perineum. Each mask offers different benefits from tightening to rejuvenation. Guests can wear a disposable dress or nothing at all. The jelly masks remain on the body for 20 minutes.
Thompson also offers teeth whitening services which she expects to be the most popular on bridal packages.
“We need to have our smiles,” said Thompson. “If people get their jelly masks and vapors before their wedding or as part of their bachelorette party, then teeth whitening would definitely be essential.”
The mobile spa will be on the move in Venice Beach and wherever there is a need. Thompson does this because she really loves it.
“I love helping people,” said Thompson. “I know it works because it worked for me. I just love that I can create experiences for people. This is something that everyone should know and have in their life. We speak of holistic and more natural ways to be more alive, have more energy and extend our lives. I feel like I am exactly the right person. I’m just the mood. “
