Life can get overwhelming at times. Deadlines, schedules, to-do lists carried forward several weeks, trying to keep fit, develop skin and hair routines all leave us feeling washed out. Instead of just sleeping in on weekends, why not head to the spa? Some hours away from the usual might be just what you need to feel rejuvenated.

To reap maximum benefits from this, ensure you have no heavy tasks pending, or delegate if possible. You don’t want to be stressed about work or household duties while on the massage bed.

Pain Relief

Procedures that involve heat like saunas, hot tubs and steam showers help in relieving aches and pains. So if you’re suffering from joint pain from too much exercise or arthritis, pop into a spa.

Better Sleep

Studies show that such treatments contribute to improved sleep. This is because of their stress-relieving properties. A relaxed body and mind reduce the chances of insomnia.

Improved Immunity

Our immunity isn’t only affected by what we eat. Massages cause lymph flow stimulation that boosts the immune system. Lymph flow removes excess water, metabolic waste, bacteria and other toxins from the muscles. Massages also improve blood circulation.

Mood Booster

A day at the spa stimulates the body to release serotonin and endorphins, hormones responsible for good moods. The use of aromatherapy oils and relief from muscle tensions put you at ease and you leave feeling happy. Breaking your daily routine allows your mind to focus on other things hence reducing stress.

Respiratory Health

Sauna steam helps to open blocked airways, great for when you have coughs or colds.

Clear Skin

Certain treatments such as body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells revealing the soft, supple skin beneath. Facial massages delay the onset of wrinkles and refines pores. For best results, make this a regular part of your life- say once a month.
