After long flights, airport transfers, walking from shop to shop and participating in a host of physically demanding excursions, all you want to do is plop down somewhere and just be. Or better yet, why not lie down somewhere serene and aromatic, where ambient music and the gentle sound of running water melt away all the unpleasantness of everyday life whilst a seasoned professional kneads your muscles into relaxation? Truth is, it doesn’t just sound good; it’s good for you! Spa treatments and therapies are not just luxury escapades. Studies have shown that regular massage therapy can help ease aches related to exercise and everyday wear, providing pain relief, improving posture and boosting energy levels. A session at the massage table can also improve sleep, which itself results in a myriad of benefits. Other treatments like facials, wraps and exfoliations remove dead skin cells, promoting healthy skin regeneration. Some of these treatments even improve circulation and provide a healthy glow. The next time you’re debating on making that spa appointment, remember that taking care of yourself not only feels good but also sends positive signals to your brain that will improve your mood, which will perpetuate a cycle of healthy choices.
