When spas first started opening up, they were thought of as a destination for expensive beauty treatments. Many people avoided going to the spa because they thought they were too expensive or they didn’t need them. But gradually people have come to realize that a spa is not just a place for relaxation and beautification, it is also a place to heal your body and mind.
Nowadays, more than eighty percent of women are regular spa-goers. Spa is an excellent place to relax and unwind. You can spend a day at the spa with your family and friends. Spas get rid of all the dust and pollution that may have accumulated on your skin. But spa has various medical benefits too. In fact, many people visit spas to take care of body ailments like arthritis, back pain and diabetes. It is not just a place that you visit to get glowing skin but also to get a health boost. A spa has a number of treatments, each designed for a target area. Skin wraps, skin exfoliations, massages, facials, sauna baths are the most common. Hair, hand and feet treatments are also available. Laser therapy, dermabrasion, chemical peels are some advanced spa treatments available. But the most popular are the whole body massages. Many spas use natural ingredients like essential oils or sea algae for the treatments. This way your body is not exposed to any harsh chemicals. The natural ingredients are gentle on the skin, yet very effective.
Thai massages, keraliyan massages and hot stone massages are some popular spa body treatments. Chocolate body wraps and salt scrubs are also pretty widespread. Then there are the more advanced treatments like metaphysical spa treatments, psychic massage, colour therapy, reflexology and reiki. These are more target based treatments that focus on the energy flow in the body. By working on the area where the energy flow has been obstructed, the body gradually loosens up and the flow is restored. These treatments require expert practitioners with proper skill and knowledge.
