7 Psychological Benefits of Going to the Spa
Our 21 st  century lives are fast paced, more digitally influenced, and busier than ever before. In the same way regular gym attendance keeps us physically fit, regular spa attendance is an effective way to help combat the long term effects of  everyday stress  that we have become accustomed to living with.

1.    Spas offer mindfulness time – While you enjoy your spa treatment or relax in the serene waiting room, you have the opportunity to relax and unwind alone. For many spa guests, this is an opportunity to practice mindfulness and take a break from social media and technology. Next time you visit the spa, allow your mind to drift and practice being in the present moment. Then enjoy the many benefits this delivers.

2.    Spa visits can soothe the blues – It can be difficult to nurture yourself when you’re feeling down, but if you can make it to the spa, the experience can lift your mood greatly. Massage  promotes the emotional release of tension and sadness trapped in your body. If you’re going through a difficult time, treat yourself to regular spa visits to lighten your load.

3.    Spa treatments increase your self-esteem and self-confidence – Regular facials  improve your complexion, reduce fine lines, fade acne scars, and target problem areas. By having regular facials to improve skin health, you can increase your self-esteem and self-confidence.

4.    Treatments involving touch calm your stress response – Many spa treatments incorporate touch, which many people do not get enough of in their daily lives. When you enjoy a massage or other treatment, your body’s stress response  calms down. Since there are many physical illnesses associated with stress, spa visits can protect both your physical health and psychological well-being.

5.    Group spa visits promote bonding – Do you prefer to go to the spa with friends, instead of alone? Then your regular spa visits offer the chance to get closer to your girlfriends, increasing bonds of friendship. This can make you feel happier and more connected!

6.    Aromatherapy treatments provide psychological boost – Whether you want to relax, re-energize, de-stress, or beat anxiety, aromatherapy spa treatments can help you adjust your mood. Add aromatherapy to your next body treatment to  adjust your mood .

7.    Spas promote positive lifestyle changes - Spas promote wellness from a holistic perspective, including eating nourishing foods and making positive lifestyle changes. If you need a little psychological boost to change a bad habit or keep a good one, your regular spa habit can help you consciously make good choices throughout your life.

Benefits of Spa Treatments for
Stress Awareness Month
April is Stress Awareness Month Stress is a major component to a number of mental and physical health issues. Stress can manifest itself in different ways for different people and can arise out of a number of life events. Allowing yourself the opportunity to relax is key to keeping those stress and anxiety levels under control. To most of us, the epitome of relaxation includes a day at the spa. 

Spa treatments and massage therapies, which are quick and relatively affordable, create both mental and physical health benefits. In fact,  studies have shown that the frequency of visiting a spa directly correlates with better quality sleep, fewer sick days, reduced absenteeism from work and fewer hospitalizations. More specifically, the heat from a hot tub, sauna or steam shower soothes aches and pains from arthritis, fibromyalgia and other joint issues. Hydrotherapy, heat therapy and massages both improve blood circulation and manage blood pressure. Some spas even have Pilates and yoga, which improve flexibility and breathing.

Throughout the process of massage therapy, lymph flow stimulation enhances the immune system. Proper  lymph flow , the body’s defense, draws out metabolic waste, excess water, toxins, and bacteria from the muscles. In turn, swelling and soreness decreases while ability to fight off disease increases. Massage also improves circulation and posture.  
Facials and Himalayan salt wraps detoxify the skin from built up waste and bacteria. 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. Facials also release stress tension from the head and neck, which can prevent headaches.

As an additional stress reliever, most spas make the effort to use products that increase the physical and mental benefits of your particular service or treatment.

Combined Benefits
Touching salt during yoga can help your body absorb trace minerals it commonly lacks including magnesium and chromium. Magnesium helps maintain the balance of other nutrients and also is important to the functioning of various enzymes, as well as your heart, kidneys, and muscles. Chromium aids in moving glucose from your bloodstream into your cells which is stored as energy. Yoga encourages deep breathing and the deeper you breathe the salt vapors into your lungs the more beneficial the healing effects. The calming effects of both salt therapy and yoga combined with the health benefits of both allow you to experience a holistic relaxation therapy.
