Are you dreaming of a spa day after lockdown? You are not the only one! One of the most missed outings during lockdown has been the spa, and as self-care and relaxation are so important, it is not hard to see why.
Once lockdown is lifted Cecily Day Spa in Berkhamsted will be ready to give you the time and space to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy some me-time away from your routine, hectic schedule. Here are just a few of the benefits of a day at the spa:
Day Spas are Mood Boosting
There are mood-boosting benefits to a spa day. Massage releases serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’, which can give you a real pick-me-up. It’s a natural, healthy way to enjoy a bit of a boost in your mood, which is particularly great on long, grey winter days.
A good massage can boost your circulation, which in turn helps the lymphatic system to work properly, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed – so it can also help to keep your body working the way it should.
Day Spas are Relaxing
Of course, a spa day is relaxing. Many people feel busier than ever, and it’s hard to find time to carve out just for yourself. There’s also the added mental toll that comes with not being able to switch off as easily as we used to, with social media and emails providing a constant distraction. A spa day is a perfect opportunity to switch off completely, allowing your mind to enjoy some peace in a serene setting. You may be surprised at just how much you needed a moment of calm.
Day Spas Improve Sleep
If you’re struggling with sleep, a spa day can provide a significant boost. For those who have insomnia, a massage or a facial can stimulate your muscles, helping you find and ease tense spots in your body to enable you to feel completely relaxed. Hopefully, this moment of calm and pampering just for you could help you to ‘reset’, ready to get into a new routine when you get home.
Day Spas have Health Benefits
There are health benefits to a spa day too. Some studies suggest that regular massages can help to strengthen your immune system. If you find yourself struggling with this in the winter months, this could be a great natural way to give your body a boost.
Visiting a spa can also help to relieve headaches. If you suffer from a lot of tension or pain in your neck and head, many treatments can alleviate this, including head massages. If you’re sitting at your desk all day long and your neck is beginning to ache, a massage could be a great way to ease that tension.
Similarly, massage can help you with all kinds of aches and pains. It’s easy to slip into having poor posture at your desk, which can cause you all sorts of issues from head to toe. A full-body massage can help find those tense areas and ease some of the pain they may be causing you.
Day Spas Give Glowing Skin
Many people are suffering from skin problems – whether it be mask-induced acne or dry skin from cold weather and central heating, there are many reasons why your skin might be feeling a bit under the weather. A range of treatments can help clear your skin and give you a bit of ‘glow’ back, including facials. These will not only provide your skin with a boost, but they’re also very relaxing.
