Stress Free Weekend With Spa

Spa treatments are those pampering services rendered by professional therapists in a relaxing environment of a facility. Clients frequent this place mainly to get their body immersed in a relaxing experience through massages, thermal treatments, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and body cleansing procedures. After the full session of any spa treatment, the client will eventually feel relaxed and sound balanced-the quality of being that is very much unlike their workaholic self.

Contrary to the popular belief, spa treatments are not basically for aesthetic purposes. In fact, the history of spa therapies can be traced back to ancient civilizations that use alternative medicine to cure several forms of illness in humans. This is especially true with massages and hydrotherapy. They are initially intended to provide relief to stressed joints and even mental stress.

Perhaps the most popular spa service these days is the massage therapy. Without a doubt, it has soothed a number of stressed clients with just a few strokes of the therapist’s hands. The therapy normally involves the kneading of the muscles in order to release the tensions or soothe the area that is prone to stress. Two of the well-known massage styles that are being practiced today are the Swedish and Thai massages. Often the effects of massage therapies are positive which include the increased blood circulation, improved flexibility and mental stability.

Aromatherapy is another specialty spa treatment that is highly favored by spa regulars. Here, the client is offered an aromatic massage using fragrant oils extracted from plants. As the term might suggests, the therapy is performed to allow the smell of the fragrant oils to soothe the client through inhalation. This unique form of therapy is said to alleviate physical and mental stress in most people.

Hot spring and sauna bathing are among the other services that can be enjoyed in a spa center. These spa therapies are actually performed as customary activities in some Asian regions, particularly in Japan. Today, they are incorporated to the regular services of the spa centers. With hot spring baths, the clients are treated to a pampering thermal therapy using the hot water from the springs. On the other hand, saunas are those baths that involve a spell in a hot steamy room followed by a plunge into the cold water. Both bathing facilities are usually not private, much like the public baths in some popular regions.

Still other examples of spa services are those that involve body wraps. In order to give warmth to the body, plastic and linen are used to cover the client’s body for several minutes. Mud wraps are also being used in spa treatments, although they are more prominent in day spas as beauty regimens.
