Top 7 Benefits that Spa Treatments Can Bring into Your Life – Blissful Times

Everybody needs a full-blown break now and then. What better way to unwind than with some blissful spa treatments? Here're a few advantages to justify your indulgence while you're in Sri Lanka!

1

Relieves Stress

Massages, manicures, pedicures, body scrubs and the like all help us relax and unwind. They make us feel good, which solves half of the problem. Furthermore, the products used as part of these treatments, such as the scented scrubs, wraps, lotions, face masks and more, also have a calming effect on the mind. Commonly used scents include aloe, lavender and cinnamon. Certain spa centres incorporate healthy activities such as Pilates and yoga into their treatment packages as well. These improve breathing as well as help make us more limber; two things which contribute greatly to overall health. Another aspect of spa treatments that is a real mood improver, is the human touch involved in the delivery of such therapies. Nowadays, when most interactions are taking place via interconnected electronic devices, it simply feels good to be groomed and pampered by a fellow human being. Humans are social beings, after all.

2

Helps Fight Headaches

Neck, shoulder, back and face massages help alleviate the amount of tension in the muscles in those areas. This helps combat headaches. You don't have to book yourself in for a massage just for this purpose. Some other treatments that you might more routinely opt for, such as facials, may contain massage too, as part of the treatment itinerary.

3

Makes Employees More Productive

Perhaps employers should consider treating their top-performers to indulgent spa days. The reduced stress levels and improved sleep that employees benefit from as a result of spa therapies will also help the company. There are likely to be a lower number of absent and sick day taken by employees.

4

Purifies the Skin

The largest organ in our body is usually overlooked and mistreated. Treatments such as facials masks, mud wraps, and baths, as well as other types of body wraps, help purify the skin by unclogging pores and removing bacteria and dead skin. These masks are oftentimes made from natural mineral resources such as clay and soil which are packed with nutrients that are good for the body.

5

Soothes Aches

Got aching muscles, bones or joints? Sweating it out in a sauna or lazily relaxing in a hot tub is highly likely to help reduce the pain and discomfort you feel. In fact, they are recommended for those suffering from complaints such as arthritis.

6

Helps Improve Circulation

Warm massages which use techniques such as heated stones help improve blood flow and increase blood circulation. They also help better control spikes in blood pressure.

7

Improved Immunity

When your muscles and flesh get massaged, your lymph nodes receive increased stimulation as well, and the lymph flow throughout your body improves. The lymph nodes are one of the main driving forces behind the body's immune system. Therefore massages that produce this effect actually help boost overall immunity of your body. If you are interested in testing out this or any of the above theories out first-hand while on holiday in Sri Lanka, book an appointment either at a standalone spa. Or, alternatively, if you happen to be staying at a spa hotel in Sri Lanka, of which there are many, such as Amagi Lagoon Resort & Spa Negombo among several others, just call the concierge and have them book you in for the next available slot!
