If you’re feeling overly stressed from the chores of daily living such as work, family or other obligations, then perhaps a day at a spa is what you need. Spas are highly beneficial and if you embark on a one day holiday from work and life then you can enjoy all the numerous benefits they have to offer. In just a few hours you can be pampered, preened and thoroughly left relaxed and refreshed – without having to take a lot of time out from work.
“There’s stress reduction. That’s a primary health benefit to spas and establishing or enhancing a beauty regimen,” said Tisha Sudah, day spa owner. “We can also address any potential issues that don’t ensure a body/mind/beauty wellness connection.
Spa relaxation has become so popular that a 2006 survey by the International Spa Association (ISPA) reports one-quarter of all American adults – some 57 million folks – plus 4 million teens have had at least one visit to a spa. Among the reasons cited: Stress reduction and relief, soothing sore joints and muscles, and simply feeling better about oneself.
“Going to a spa is a way of getting taken care of that is psychologically and culturally acceptable — and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time, and very often that can help us cope better with stress,” said Sudah.
“Facials, body scrubs and massages are all key ways to maintain healthy skin & rebuild and repair skin or tissue that needs work. A spa can help you relax in turn relieving stress from the daily grind. Spending the day at a spa and relaxing helps with sleep and getting better rest at night,” said Christina Savescu, another spa owner.
In addition to stress relief, going to the spa can also increase your energy with massage therapy and better endurance by spending some time sauna bathing. Spas are also great at helping those who can’t sleep, especially those who suffer from migraines. Steam gives you the all-natural alternative to headache medicines. Like headache pills, it dilates the blood vessels in the head, but it does it naturally. Health spa hydrotherapy also helps you sleep better by getting your blood flowing better.
“The five main things you can receive from a day at the spa are tranquility, relaxation, stress relief, pampering and a better state of mind,” said Savescu.
So if you’re thinking of spending a day at the spa, remember to focus on what beauty or health issues you need to address to make the most of your day. Don’t delay and give yourself that special day you need. We look forward to seeing you.
