Spa holidays are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and forget all about life’s little stresses. Whether it be a romantic break for two or a weekend getaway for a group of friends, at ActivityBreaks.com we have spa holidays to suit all tastes. So take the time to take care of yourself! Here are just some of the benefits of a spa holiday…
Target those aches and pains with a massage
Feeling stiff and sore? In today’s society so many of us spend a lot of time hunched over our work computer or mobile phone, which can result in neck, shoulder and back pain. Therapeutic massage treatments will help to tease out any muscle tension and knots and allow your body to relax.
Sweat it out
Time in the sauna and steam room is immensely beneficial for your circulation, respiratory system, and skin. It can lower your blood pressure (so be careful if you have low blood pressure) and help to reduce inflammation linked to osteoarthritis, as as well as helping to relieve muscle tension. Take a cold shower or dip in the cold plunge pool afterwards to feel completely reinvigorated and get that heart rate going. Depending on where you are staying you may or may not be allowed to wear a swimming costume, and it is generally thought to be more hygienic not to wear one. Never fear though, a towel is generally permitted (or obligatory in the case of the sauna).
One of the most appealing elements of a spa holidays is the luxury of a hotel, and the thought of being pampered by the spa treatments available. There’s something about slipping on the fluffy bathrobe and spa slippers that just make you feel instantly more relaxed. Knowing someone else is taking care of breakfast and dinner is a treat in itself, but when you settle into that massage chair, with the heat, the tranquil atmosphere and the smells of the various massage oils, something starts to unwind within. There is no better feeling in this world, than feeling content and well looked after.
Soothe your skin
Weather, stress, make-up, shaving… they all take their toll on skin. Spa holidays are the perfect opportunity to rehydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Take the opportunity to get a deep cleansing facial treatment and your aesthetician can advise you on how to care for your ski properly. If you are staying at a thermal spa, a soak in the waters often help to make your skin feel baby soft.
