A visit to the spa is not just a luxury for the rich and famous. More and more spa treatments are designed with affordability in mind to allow people with mid-range and lower budgets to enjoy the health benefits derived from regular spa visits.
“It is nice finding that place where you can just go and relax.”
A day at the spa is just what you need for your physical and mental health.
Spas usually offer massage therapies, facials, body treatments, and all kinds of complete packages that treat the body as a whole. Here are some of the most important benefits of regular spa visits.
Massages are good for you
Massages don’t just make you feel well – they have long-term benefits for your body. Although massage is considered alternative medicine, they are already a standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. You can get a massage at work, at home, while you wait at the airport, and sure, in spas and hospitals. Studies have shown that massage therapy can help reduce anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia, sports injuries, and much more. Because massage helps release serotonin, the hormone that enhances the emotional state, many people feel calm and relaxed after a massage. Sure some people with conditions like severe osteoporosis, deep vein thrombosis, or fractures should consult the doctor prior to going to a spa for a massage therapy.
Body wraps give your skin the nutrients and moisture it needs
Body wraps are common in most spas around the world. Each such spa treatment is designed for a specific purpose. For example, at Aegeo Spas we may offer aloe wraps, which are hydrating, antioxidant, and soothing; seaweed wraps that help slimming, detoxifying, and toning, offering a sense of wellbeing, and the list can go on. After a body wrap, you may also lose some water weight, your skin will look tighter and brighter, exfoliated and moisturized, purified and soft. Aegeo Spas therapists will offer their guidance so that you may choose the most appropriate wrap treatment for your own body needs.
Facial treatments restore your natural glow
Facial treatments help reduce stress and restore your natural glow. A study by the Japanese User Science Institute revealed that facial massages significantly reduce anxiety and negative moods due to increased parasympathetic nervous activity, which helps you relax. Through exfoliation during a facial treatment, your skin will be purified and the massage also helps improve the blood flow. Regular facial treatments with creams and oiks with anti-aging properties will keep your skin looking younger for longer.
