A spa is more than a relaxing experience, it is a holistic approach to wellness. Whether it is a facial, massage, or mani/pedi, a trip to the spa can help relieve stress, boost moods, and improve skin health. It also helps with muscle stiffness, body pain, and encourages mind relaxation.
In fact, studies have shown that frequent spa visits can lead to better sleep and a decreased number of sick days, which is important for maintaining physical and mental well-being. Aside from the positive effects on the body, a visit to the spa is also a great way to bond with friends and family. There is nothing better than spending time with the ones you love in a place that feels like another world.
Adding to the sense of relaxation is the use of calming scents. Spas often choose to use a combination of jasmine, lavender, sage, vanilla, and eucalyptus scents for their therapeutic properties. They are distributed throughout the space in the form of candles, incense, and even essential oils to create a sensory journey that is both relaxing and restorative.
What’s more, spas are designed to be as soothing on the eyes and ears as they are on the body. Spas often feature soothing watercolor landscapes and photos of nature to help create a calming ambiance. They may also play soft, instrumental music that is calming and serene (no Justin Bieber, please!). Aside from sound, a spa should also have a clock in its relaxation room to allow guests to set a realistic timeframe for their treatment.
