Spa breaks offer an array of relaxing treatments, so there is something for everyone. With spa breaks usually only lasting a long weekend, it can be difficult to know which spa treatments to opt for in the short space of time you are there for. Therefore, we have compiled a guide of the best treatments to opt for on your spa break, so you can make the most of your time away and truly benefit from the calming atmosphere.
Everyone gets stressed, whether it’s from work or your day to day life it’s so hectic. Therefore, every now and then you should opt for a massage, so you can de-stress!
Indian Head Massage
Treatments vary on the spa, as some offer more treatments than others. So, when you book your spa break, enquire about the treatments first.
The Indian Head Massage is based on Ayuvedic healing and is perfect if you want a treatment that will provide both relaxation and revitalisation. We all suffer from stress and know too well that it can cause aching in our tissues, joints and muscles around our body. If you opt for the Indian Head Massage, all the tension you are feeling across your body will be released.
When you undergo the treatment, you will sit in a chair whilst the therapist applies pressure to the scalp, neck, shoulder and even the face on occasions. If you suffer from headaches and insomnia from the stress; this is the perfect treatment for you.
Hot Stone Massage
Another relaxing treatment, which is ideal if you’re suffering from stress, is a Hot Stone Massage. Despite the thought of hot stones being placed on your body may not sound appealing, it is perfectly safe and worthwhile. The stones are all various different sizes and are placed on a number of your muscles.
Although the technique can vary between each therapist, usually they will warm your body up first by using traditional massage techniques. Once the muscles are warmed up, they will then add the hot stones in. This type of massage is incredibly beneficial, as it allows the therapist to release tension from muscles on a deeper level.
This treatment also benefits those who suffer from stress. The pressure on the particular points of the body is gentle yet firm, and therapists use their fingertips to boost energy flow and even help healing. Acupressure Massages are perfect if you want to relax and de-stress both your mind and your body and encourage healing.
Face treatments leave you looking and feeling rejuvenated and refreshed and there are so many types to choose from. Here are just a few:
Sometimes our skin can lack moisture, especially during the winter months, which is why hydrating facials can be a very popular choice during a spa break. Lotions including collagen are usually used to remove flaky, dry patches of skin and even improve the appearance of the skin to make it look more youthful.
Everyone dreams of maintaining their youthful appearance, which is why many opt for the rejuvenating facial. They work by promoting collagen production and the growth of new skin cells. Depending on the therapist, some may use an electric exfoliating brush, which is completely pain-free, to remove any dead skin cells.
During your spa break, you might as well enjoy a nail treatment!
You use your hands every day, which is why you should take the opportunity of a spa break to get a manicure and treat your fingers, hands and nails.
During a manicure, the nail technician will clean your nails and remove any old nail varnish so your nails can return to their natural colour. You will then place your hands in a bowl of hot water for them to soak for about 10 minutes. Whilst one of your hands is in soak, usually, the beautician will start pushing the cuticles back on the other hand, so they can cut any old skin away. Once they have done this to both hands, they will use nail clippers to cut the softened cuticles away.
The nail technician will then shape the nails to the shape you prefer, followed by a shorthand massage to circulate the blood, which will leave your hands feeling smooth and moisturised. You then get to choose a colour for your nails, which the nail technician will apply with the utmost accuracy and precision.
This is just a taster of the types of treatments you can receive during your spa break. Of course, treatments vary on the spa, as some offer more treatments than others. So, when you book your spa break, enquire about the treatments first. If you want to book a spa break so you can enjoy one of these many treatments, get in touch with us, today.
