Let’s be honest, everyone could use a nice and relaxing spa day. Seeking a massage or facial seems like a luxury and a “for fun” type of activity. However, did you know that having an occasional spa day can actually be significantly beneficial to your physical and mental health? Let’s check out some of the benefits of taking a spa day for yourself!
Stress can have a very prominent, physical effect on the body. It is common to carry stress in your muscles, often in the shoulders. Having the tension massaged out of the places you carry the most stress can make you feel better, lighter, and can put your mind at ease. Plus, taking the time to get away from day-to-day life can be a great way to recharge and reset your focus.
Being able to take some time to destress can actually slow down the aging process. More than that, facials can have a direct effect on slowing the aging process of the face due to the hydration or moisturization techniques performed. Also, facials can increase blood flow and circulation in the face which can reveal younger-looking skin. Slow down those wrinkles with an occasional facial!
Prevention of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are veins that are swollen and enlarged and often appear as twisting, dark purple, bulging lines under the skin. These are caused by standing for long periods of time and are actually very common in adults. Receiving a massage on the legs can stimulate proper blood flow through the legs and can prevent these veins from appearing.
Serotonin is a hormone in your body that is in charge of making you feel happy. Massages can increase the amount of serotonin your body releases. Therefore, having a spa day can actually boost your happiness, mental health, and can relieve depression!
