Wondering what to do during your trip to London? This is the perfect time to relax, rejuvenate and recharge your batteries.
People always forget that they need to indulge in a bit of ‘me time’. Remember to always take care of yourself and cherish yourself. What better way is there to pamper yourself than with a day at a luxury spa? Whether it’s just for an hour-long massage or for a week-long retreat, having a break away from it all is the perfect way to get perspective back on things. But there are countless other benefits to having a day at the spa than relaxation, it also helps detox your body and help maintain your health, and that’s only the beginning!
Here are the top ten benefits of spa treatments.
1. Get away from busy daily life distractions:
No phones buzzing, no televisions blaring, no colleagues nagging… Take a breath and feel totally at peace in the solitude of the spa. Having no modern life distractions around you will help you unwind and get rid of any unnecessary stress that may be getting you down. Have a trip to the spa as an excuse to turn all your devices off and get away from it all.
2. Reduce muscle pain:
Having a trip to the spa will release any tension that may be in your body. When your mind is stressed, your body gets stressed too. Muscles get stiff, necks get strained, backs get sore… with this in mind, it’s vital that you take care of your body, getting a treatment like a hot stone massage is the perfect way to relax your body and ensure that you don’t get any long-term issues with muscles cramps, bad posture or back pain.
3. Stimulates the lymphatic system:
The lympha-what system? The lymphatic system is made up of tissues and organs that help get rid of toxins in your body. Massages and other spa treatments are a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system. Unwanted toxins will be expelled from your body, your digestive tract will be more efficient and your immune system will be stronger. Sounds pretty great!
4. Release Serotonin:
What is serotonin? Serotonin may be better known as the ‘happy’ chemicals that get released in your brain when you do something that feels good. Having natural releases of serotonin in the brain from spa activities is a fantastic way to keep you feeling happier and healthier in the long run.
5. Heat treatments are great for circulation:
Keep your blood pumping with some hot stone therapies or a sauna session. Heat therapies are a great way to get the blood flowing throughout the body, which will lower the chances of high-blood pressure and blood clots in the future.
6. Great for the skin:
Get a glowing complexion with a trip to the spa. Facials, exfoliating treatments and mud baths are a great way to clear out your pores and rejuvenate your skin - other spa activities such as saunas and heat based treatments are also great at cleansing your skin. Sweating clears the body and gets rid of oils, dirt and other toxins that may be trapped in your skin. Feel fresh as a daisy after a trip to the spa.
Re-charge your body with nutrients from natural body wraps. Body wraps made from seaweed or other down-to-earth materials such as clay or algae are wonderful at detoxifying the body. Feel re-charged, rejuvenated and reborn with the help of body wraps and other healthy spa treatments.
- Educate yourself about your body:
With a team of experts guiding you through all the different treatments, they will be able to educate you on the unique workings of your body and how best to treat it. Perhaps some of your muscles are more tense than others? Maybe your skin is sensitive to certain treatments? Learn more about yourself at the spa.
9. Beauty Perks:
It is said that certain massages (that stimulate the lymphatic system as mentioned before) are great at helping people to lose weight, as they help relieve the body of unwanted waste and toxins. Facials and other skin related treatments are also said to help the anti-aging process and help make you look young and fresh!
If your spa offers yoga or pilates sessions – take them! They are a great way to increase flexibility, get the heart pumping and regulating your breath. The perfect exercise class for people who also want to feel calm and serene.
