Many of us desire a spa treatment, or if we’re lucky a weekend spa break. We long for the relaxation and pampering. A break from life as a busy mom. A chance to re-energise and perhaps to treat our achy muscles or dry skin. You may be surprised to learn that spa treatments have many health benefits, and can be incredibly good for you. With so many treatments and packages out there to choose from, you need to shop around.

Poor circulation is an increasing problem. Conditions such as varicose veins can not only be unsightly, but also very painful and in some cases debilitating. With more of us employed in jobs that mean we are on our feet or sitting down all day, these conditions can be a real problem. A massage helps to stimulate blood flow, which not only feels good at the time, it can have a positive impact on circulation long after the massage has ended.
If you suffer from chronic pain, perhaps in your back or neck, massage can be a great way to relieve your symptoms and can even reduce the need for pain relieving medication.
High blood pressure often shows no symptoms. I couldn’t tell you what my blood pressure is. So, it’s a good idea to do things you know can help keep yours healthy. Regular massage has been shown to help reduce blood pressure and keep it within an ideal range.
Spa treatments can really give your immune system a much-needed boost. Scientific evidence suggests massage can increase the number of white blood cells in your body. This is especially useful in winter, when there are so many bugs going around.
Massages help stimulate circulation, which is great for your skin. Other treatments can help give you younger, healthier skin with a gorgeous glow. Any treatment that causes you to sweat, such as time in a steam room, will remove toxins from your skin and body, while treatments that exfoliate remove dead skin cells. Facials and other body masks also rejuvenate your skin, and restore any oils and moisture you lose in day to day life.
Any kind of spa treatment can be great for reducing stress, anxiety and a range of mental health problems. As well as lowering your blood pressure, it gives you time to relax, and really look after yourself. We all need this from time to time.
A day at the spa leaves you feeling refreshed, relaxed and happy. These things are all guaranteed to help you get a good night’s sleep.
Whatever it is you want help with, from chronic conditions, to the general stresses of life, a spa treatment will help you. Perhaps even in ways you don’t realise you need. Go on, treat yourself, you deserve it.
