Treat yourself to a spa relaxation Written by Jherlyn Meneses / AJPress Los Angeles Tuesday, 01 September 2009 22:13 - THESE days, the level of stress appears to be always at its peak and pressure seems to be endless. Once in a while, there has to be a diversion from the busyness of life and one needs to indulge and pamper themselves with relaxation and rejuvenation - a visit to a spa! The benefit of spa goes way beyond relaxation. It’s a total package. It de-stresses not just the body but the mind and spirit as well. It enhances spiritual awareness, increases energy flow in the body, improves body flexibility, reduce high blood pressure and tension, heal emotional distress, reduce effects of aging, soothes tired muscles, tones and nourishes the skin, detoxifies the body, stimulates circulation, reduces weight and reduces insomnia, fatigue and stress. There are different kinds of spas to choose from: Day spa A health spa frequented by people who seek professionally administered personal care treatment. It offers spa treatment on a daily basis such as massages, facials, body wrap, scrubs, water treatments and hair or nail services. It has a calming and nurturing environment that is suitable for relaxation and wellness. Their staff includes professional, licensed estheticians and therapists. Getaway spa These are destination spas that offer the same services of a day spa in a hotel setting where people stay for more than a day. It is sort of like a vacation that is not just focused on sightseeing but on wellness and relaxation as well. Its sole purpose is to help you lead a healthier lifestyle through spa treatments, exercise, and educational programming. It normally includes a full program of fitness and stress reduction classes, nutrition consultation and other wellness programs. 1/2 Treat yourself to a spa relaxation Written by Jherlyn Meneses / AJPress Los Angeles Tuesday, 01 September 2009 22:13 - Medical spa Medical spas are owned and operated by licensed healthcare professionals and offer non-surgical cosmetic medical treatments. Wellness treatments at medical spas offer executive health screenings, addiction therapy programs, acupuncture and biofeedback therapy to name a few. Common cosmetic treatments at medical spas include laser and intense pulsed light procedures, medical microdermabrasions, photo-facials, botox and restylane injections, thermage, laser hair removal, and chemical peels. Most of these services are minimally invasive and require little downtime. Nowadays, spa services are easy to find. They have emerged in different locations such as shopping malls, hotels, stand alone facilities or connected to a wellness center or a medical facility. So wherever you may reside or your travels take you, find a spa that’s nearest you and give yourself a treat.
