Spa treatments help to promote Holistic Health, which includes mental, emotional, physical health, and overall well-being. The self-care received during spa treatments positively impacts many different aspects of your life. Specific areas include improving sleep quality, reduced stress, improved self-confidence, fewer headaches, and fewer trips to your health care professional.
Stress is a major cause of a number of mental and physical health issues. Spa treatments are one of the best ways to relieve stress. When you allow yourself to have a moment away from your stress triggers, you get the opportunity to relax by renewing your body and mind. This is key to keeping your stress and anxiety levels under control.
Stress can manifest itself in different ways for different people. Some examples include muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, anxiety, depression, anger, and low energy levels.
Benefits of Spa Services
A little pampering goes a long way. Here are some of the most popular spa treatments and what they do for your health.
Heat therapy involves exposure to intense heat from saunas or baths. The purpose is to elevate heart rate and widen blood vessels. The increased circulation reduces muscle soreness and reduces joint pain.
Hydrotherapy improves blood circulation and can help to manage blood pressure.
Massage Therapy is the process of using massage for lymph flow, the natural defense stimulation, in order to enhance the immune system. Proper lymph flow removes waste, excess water, toxins, and bacteria from the muscles. In turn, swelling and soreness decrease while the ability to fight off disease increases.
Reflexology is a treatment that restores the body’s natural balance. We spend a lot of time on our feet. As a result, there is a lot of pressure on the feet. Manipulating the pressure points on the feet through reflexology massages can help alleviate headaches.
Facials detoxify the skin from built-up waste and bacteria. Facials also release stress tension from the head and neck, which can prevent headaches.
Mud baths exfoliate and nourish the skin through the earth’s natural elements, like soil, clay, and water, which are full of vitamins and minerals. This is important because the skin is not only the largest organ in the body but also the first line of defense against environmental toxins.
Yoga help to improve flexibility and breathing.
Aroma spa therapy (aromatherapy) healing can come from using soothing scents like lavender essential oil. One of the best things about Aromatherapy is that it can also be done at home. Ask your Holistic HealthCare practitioner about the Aromatherapy options that are best for you and what essential oils you will need.
