Have you been completely on edge lately? Are you feeling stressed out by your job, the kids, relationships? It might be time to take a break from taking care of everything else, and put yourself first. What better way to decompress and de-stress than to take advantage of some luxury spa treatments? Check out these 5 luxury spa treatments which will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Ultimate Classic: A Relaxing Massage
Cost-conscious massage franchise centers like Massage Envy are finally making massage an affordable luxury for more consumers. Massage also has the advantage of often being recommended by doctors to supplement whatever medical recommendations they make for a whole host of issues, including arthritis and prenatal care. You can also use local social deal sites like Gilt City or Groupon to find awesome deals on more luxe spa places.
Do Something New: Check Out Korean Spa Treatments
Don’t be afraid: you will most likely not end up like Conan O’Brian and Steven Yeun at their Korean spa visit. You do, however, have to get naked. In most Korean spas, you will have options of several rooms to visit – whether you want to relax in the various steam rooms, or saunas, or even indulge in some yummy Korean food meant to heal you between each room. Bring a Korean friend who can speak the language, and you’ll be set to come out refreshed.
Indulge In A Mini-Treat: Get a Facial
If you are not feeling up to getting the full treatment, get a mini-treat with a facial. Clear your pores, and enjoy the clean, refreshing feeling of getting a facial mask or scrub. Whether you choose to wrap your face in clay or opt for a peel, you will barely recognize the face staring back at you in the mirror when you’re done.
Reduce Stress With Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy is simply the process of using water to relieve and soothe pain and stress. While some spas offer hydrotherapy in the form of hot tubs, we are fans of spas that incorporate thermal or springs, where you can experience the benefits of hydrotherapy from a natural source. This is a true luxury, one that you’ll want to schedule a few vacation days for, as few places in the US have access to their own natural springs. One of the best-known places in the US is Glenwood Hot Springs, which has been providing a natural form of relaxation for over a hundred years.
Refresh The Whole Body With A Whole Body Wrap
There are an astonishing number of ways you can luxuriate in a full body wrap. Choose from algae or seaweed wraps, the classic mud, or use herbal body wraps to help release toxins, increase circulation, and in some cases, reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimples. Who could ask for more?
Most people don’t make time to take care of themselves and indulge. Coming back from a relaxing spa treatment will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the world. So why not start today?
