An integrated personal health and wellness plan is vital for relieving emotional stress, detoxifying the body, and achieving the best mental experience for your heart and soul.
Staying active is one way to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As many as 15 million Americans now practice yoga, citing wellness, peace and calm, and health as their three top reasons for doing so.
Sometimes, though, we may feel the need to just be still. A nourishing soak at a health spa or a calm afternoon dedicated to meditation may be the best answer to some of life’s problems. Daily meditation, for example, has been shown to help 75% of insomniacs get to sleep within 20 minutes of going to bed.
Health spas offer a range of additional benefits that can enhance the restorative release you experience from simply being still and at ease. Here are some of our favorite spa treatments and what they can do to help you relax and rejuvenate.
- Foot Soak
Our feet do so much work for us; it’s important to give them the attention and care they deserve. A long and detoxifying soak with specially selected salts, minerals, and aromas will have you ready to be back on your feet, quite literally.
- Abhyanga Massage
This Ayurvedic practice incorporates heated oils that get worked into your skin to not only help calm your muscles but revitalize your skin’s natural health and glow, too.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique used by health spas to dispel and heal negative thoughts and energies through the power of touch. Reiki practitioners are trained in special hand techniques to calm and heal.
Much of our tension ends up showing through wrinkles in our face. Slow the aging process and revitalize your skin with a facial treatment using traditional, natural medicinals like green tea, lavender, jasmine, or lemongrass.
When you want to live life to its fullest, you need to relax and rejuvenate to the fullest extent, too. Make the time for a routine health spa treatment that can freshen your skin, calm your worries, relieve your bodily stress, or all three at the same time. In this fast-paced world, stillness is sometimes the best antidote.
