After a long week or a strenuous activity, what better way to treat yourself than by paying a visit to the spa? Not only can spa treatments help you to feel relaxed and release feelings of anxiety, but they can also have benefits for your health. Read on to learn more about the most popular treatments today and discover why you should pencil in your next (or first!) trip to the spa this weekend.
1. The Massage: The purpose of a massage is to rub and manipulate your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin, using both light rubbing and deep pressure. Massages have proven to be beneficial for your health, both mentally and physically, and is often used as a form of therapy and recovery. In modern times, massages can be given in nail salons, hospitals, clinics, and even airports, but for a true authentic massage, one should visit a professional masseuse in order to avoid injury or strained muscles.
2. The Facial: A facial is a type of skin treatment focusing on the face that typically include moisturizer, exfoliation, steam, peels, extraction, and massage. Not only are facials relaxing and good for your skin’s health, but they can leave your skin glowing, radiant, and looking ten years younger. Doctors and dermatologists often advise that patients visit a professional to get facials regularly because of their ability to aid in healing acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and minimizing pores.
3. Waxing/Hair Removal: In a waxing or hair removal treatment, a trained professional utilizes hot wax to remove hair from the root, rather than just the surface. Waxing treatments are beneficial because they can leave your skin smooth and glowing, while lengthening the time intervals between hair removal treatments because they remove the entire hair from its root, much deeper than one could ever reach with a razor. Waxing and hair removal treatments can be performed on many different areas of the body, but is most commonly utilized for eyebrow shaping, facial hair removal, and hair removal of the underarm, chest, and bikini areas.
