Several years ago I discovered the ecstasy of manicures, pedicures and facials. Although nail polish is made entirely of chemicals and some spas present real health dangers, I’m convinced that for me, the positives outweigh the negatives. Today’s guest blogger, Nancy, shares with us some of these benefits!
In our stress-filled, highly mechanic lives, going to a spa is not an extravagance but an essentiality. The magic that it brings into your life is worthy of the time and money spent. Various types of spas have emerged these days; they all provide some great benefits.
Here are the 5 best advantages of spa treatments:
Are you aware of the numerous detrimental effects like cardiovascular problems, skin irritations, unnecessary weight gains and weight losses, chronic diseases, etc. caused by stress? Stress is something that cannot be avoided in our day to day life; however, it has to be relieved once in a while for healthy living.
A spa treatment offers you a relaxing short break from your busy life routines, soothes your nerves and washes your worries away. Pamper yourself at a spa to relieve stress and rejuvenate your mind.
Paves way to healthy living
The massage therapist at the spa massages you to de-tense your muscles. This person is usually an expert in the field of healthy living, and hence knows how to impart her knowledge to you in an interesting and easily understandable manner.
So, while massaging, she talks to you about things like simple muscle relaxation techniques, nutritious diet, healthy lifestyle, etc. This information is practical, and so can be incorporated into your daily life. Thus, spa going makes you aware of positive life style changes and paves the way to a healthy lifestyle.
A trip to the spa not only imparts physical benefits but also significant mental benefits. Any kind of luxury treatments including manicures, pedicures, facials, body scrubs, body masks, massages, body wraps, etc. can increase your self-esteem, raise your confidence, boost clear thinking and elevate your mood. These psychological benefits of spa treatments are well-established and are backed by tons of real life reports.
Who doesn’t like looking good? Long hours of hairstyling cannot render that well-conditioned hair that you long for, nor can thick layers of make-up get you that natural look that you desire; but a spa treatment can definitely do it! Your skin and hair texture improves, you feel fresh and rejuvenated, and you get some glamour in your looks. Apart from beautifying your body, it also makes you feel and look younger by improving blood circulation, regulating blood pressure, imparting better sleeping patterns and losing excess weight.
Do you know that the metabolic wastes produced in your body along with the toxins contributed by consumed items such as caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol, preservatives, etc; toxins produced in the body during anxiety and stress; and toxins contributed by environmental pollutants such as smoke, dust, etc. have accumulated inside your body for years?
Getting rid of them can make you feel really great! A detoxification spa treatment with techniques such as colon cleansing, Ayurvedic detoxification, juice fasting, etc. can remove those unwanted elements and chase away your bodily discomforts such as bloating, water retention and excessive body weight. For this reason, detoxification is something vital for making you feel energized, vigorous and rejuvenated.
There are many other benefits of spa going apart from the above discussed. However, you should not blindly choose to go to any spa out there. Look out for important factors such as hygiene, licensed practitioners, trained professionals, safety parameters, staff behavior, etc. of the spa that you choose.
