A new spa is raising some eyebrows in Southern New Hampshire.
The Diaper Spa website lists it as the “only physician-owned Diaper Spa in the world” and says it is open to “all diaper-wearing individuals who seek acceptance, respite, and care”.
The space is decorated to look like a baby’s nursery, complete wtih small beds, toys, and folded diapers.
Services include ABDL (Adult Baby/Diaper Lover) nursery spa care, therapeutic support and life coaching, and a 24-hour stay called the Diaper B&B. All clients are required to wear adult diapers.
Colleen Ann Murphy, the owner of the spa, said the spa and its services are non-sexual and do not cater to any fetish, but instead are catered to individuals looking to regress and heal.
“It helps them process whatever trauma it was,” Murphy said. “A lot of times it’s childhood trauma when they were in diapers or just getting out of diapers and they want to feel that safety that they had before that.”
Not all area residents are in favor of the spa. A change.org petition was started over the weekend to voice objections to its presence in the community.
