I don’t sleep. That may be an exaggeration. What I mean is, I've always had a difficult relationship with sleeping, in that we both refuse to spend any meaningful time together. An average week sees me sleep about a quarter of the time I'm supposed to. We've all heard the recommendation to catch at least eight hours of sleep per night for healthy brain and body function. But when you don’t have any motivation, desire, or ability to get a long night’s sleep every time you put your head down, that number ends up being a dream instead of a goal.
NAP Sleep Salon was created to address the hurdles modern life has thrown in the way of a healthy sleep cycle. After searching for years to find a salon that offers a relaxing massage and shampoo, without the cut, the owners returned empty-handed. Enter NAP Sleep Salon: an inner-city temple of sleep dedicated to shampoo and massage.
The dark interior of NAP Sleep Salon immediately gives a spa-like impression. Dim lighting, soft decor, and gentle music round out the package and leave you with no doubts as to the purpose of your visit.
At NAP Sleep Salon that’s what you’re there for. The massooist (seriously, is this a word we are comfortable with?) doused my head in organic shampoos and lotions and unleashed her magic fingers. By this point, I was actually asleep. Yep, they got me. I would offer a more thorough description of the actual experience, but I was blissfully skipping my way to Z-town while all of this went down. Me, who will choose literally anything over sleep. Me, who wakes up from a nap mad at how much time I wasted with my eyes closed. I was asleep, during the day, while someone touched my head.
An hour and a half later—and 600 baht lighter in the pockets—I left NAP Sleep Salon feeling completely at ease with the fact that I had just left the office for an “appointment” that was actually a 90-minute snooze-fest. Plus: my hair felt soft, smooth, shiny, and perfectly-styled in a way my barber could only dream of.
