The concept of spa is to restore, revive and enable one to live a healthier lifestyle and is very important to those subjected to enormous amounts of stress or worries. Even in tough economic times, there are still many who go to a spa on a monthly basis. Of course, not all of us could afford such visits and many of us do not necessarily need a spa treatment as often.
With today’s hectic lifestyle, individuals are becoming ill, exhausted and stressed to the point of risking their overall health. In these cases it is very important to relax, maintain a well-balanced diet and to get proper daily exercise. Many medical experts have cited stress as a main factor of illnesses, thus the main priority of a spa seeker is to focus on the de-stressing of the mind, body and spirit.
There are different kinds of spa treatments and services provided at spas such as a massage, facial, sauna or steam bath, pedicure, manicure and even a mud bath. Here are a few benefits you can obtain from having a proper spa treatment, going beyond the mind and spirit:
1.Relaxes the body and mind;
3.Beautifies and hydrates the skin;
4.Revitalizes and relaxes tight and aching muscles;
5.Increases metabolic rate and burns calories;
5.and Enhances the respiratory and other body systems.
While it is nice to head out the door to a facility which provides you with that special spa treatment leaving you feel like you are on cloud nine, there are many ways to get similar results within the privacy of your own home. There are many “recipes” for facials, mud baths and other wonder works; sometimes a soothing bath is all you need to re-energize your body and mind.
Be aware that if you have been drinking alcohol prior to taking a bath, the hot water will dehydrate your system, so it is not best to soak in a bubble bath without the cocktail in your hand! Also, many suggest that best results are gained from a nice soaking in the tub on an empty stomach. It is also well advised to know and be aware of the fact that some people get lightheaded after relaxing in a tub of hot water, so to eliminate this from happening, add some salt to your bath water; and why not add some lavender as well – it is very soothing and smells divine! In summation, save your money and provide your body mind, and spirit with time to relax and rest without worry or without concern for the day-to-day responsibilities. Your outlook, attitude and personality will shine like a star!
