Why should you go to the spa? Some people don’t think it’s necessary to pamper themselves. I want to tell you the benefits for your health.
Getting a massage not only feels great, it increases blood flow, detoxes, relieves stress, relaxes muscles that causes knots, and lessens pain. Massage is necessary for everyone’s health. The more you get a massage, the better you will feel. It should be thought of as maintenance, not a luxury. The circulation of the blood heals wounds. It flushes out the waste products that cause illness and helps the organs regulate better.
Most people have pain in their back legs, feet, and would love the relief a massage can give. Some people with certain health issues are recommended by doctors to get therapeutic massage. Diabetes can cause neuropathy and massage is good for circulation. The digestive system can be sluggish and not work properly. With the help of massage, digestion can be stimulated and waste moved out. You need to drink a lot of water after a massage so it flushes out the toxins; you will also have less pain from a deep tissue massage.
Facials are not only good for your skin, but also great for relaxing. Most people don’t realize how much stress they hold in their face. TMJ is the muscles in the jaws that are tight from grinding the teeth. Massaging the face relaxes the muscles to release the tension. The muscles in the face can cause wrinkles to form around the mouth and eyes. Tension headaches also can be relieved with massage.
Sinus congestion around the eyes and nose can cause pain. During a facial, steam towels open up the sinuses and massaging the pressure points can release the sinuses to drain. The facial is so relaxing, with all kinds of benefits for your health and skin. The products used during a facial can also be healing for eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, scars, darkening of the skin, wrinkles and dryness. Red light therapy helps deliver the products into the skin for rejuvenation of collagen and healing.
I choose to give benefits from both a massage and facial by combining them in one service. I call it a “fassage.”
A fassage is an hour facial and massage. I use hot stones for a deep penetrating therapeutic massage of the face, arms, legs, feet and shoulders. Hot towels are used to steam the face and open the sinuses. Brushes are used to apply the products in a relaxing, soft touch. The scrub pads exfoliate and bring blood flow to the skin. Massage techniques are used to relax, relieve pain, release tight muscles, lessen the look of wrinkles and remove toxins. I use tools to relax the muscles and red light to help heal and rejuvenate the face.
Nail services are also beneficial. Your skin, nails and the muscles in your hands and feet also need attention. A massage during a manicure and pedicure has the same effect on your feet, legs, hands and arms as it does on the body. The spa foot whirlpool tub heat and water soothes aches and dry skin. The products exfoliate, moisturize and heal the skin.
Nails need grooming so that your hands and feet can be healthy and clean, free from germs, without ingrown nails, fungus or calluses. Painful legs and feet can be hard to walk on, so taking care of them is important. The hands are used every day, so keeping them clean, groomed and pain free is also a must. Arthritis in the hands also needs attention–and what better way than a massage? Diabetics must be especially careful with their feet, so a professional is needed.
The more often you get these services, the better the results and health benefits. Get started on your health today. Start the New Year with a Whole New You.
