In June 2020, all I wanted for my birthday was to be able to have something on the calendar to look forward to. So I came up with this idea of hosting a spa that my friends and family across 5 time zones could all do together.
As an experience designer focused on aligning technology with health-centered design values, I combined digital tools with ancient practices — from natural essentials that have been used for thousands of years to nourish skin, to self massage, to breathing and meditation techniques. The result became a shared ritual for relaxation, refreshment, and embodiment.
After my birthday spa, people asked me to keep doing more, and it has since grown into a collective self care ritual connecting people all over the world.
