Lives we lead today are quite busy, fast and filled with different activities. Due to this, we tend to develop some habits that affect our health in a bad way. Unhealthy lifestyle results in anxiety and dissatisfaction in all spheres of our lives. In order to be satisfied, happy with our lives and capable of executing all our daily activities properly, we need to balance our minds, souls, and bodies.
Wellness and spa centers offer all that you need to strike a perfect balance: massages, facials and body treatments, pieces of advice about health, nutrition and meditation for your soul and mind. Many spa and wellness centers also offer the use of facilities such as saunas, steam baths, hot tubs, and salt rooms.
All of this is known as wellness remedies and it's your path to heaven.
There are usually many types of massage on every spa’s menu. The most popular ones are Swedish massage and deep tissue massage. Swedish massage is a massage where professional massages your whole body, while a deep tissue massage includes focusing on some areas that are especially tight. Aromatherapy includes massages with essential oils and they are mainly done for the purpose of relaxation. There is usually a wide range of essential oils available for you to choose from. A hot stone massage uses smooth, rounded basalt stones which are heated in water. They retain their warmth quite well and are used to warm up your muscles and relax them. There are also some specialty massages like Thai massage or reflexology. They require special skills.
Taking care of your skin is not easy and we usually can’t clean it deeply ourselves, so booking a facial is a good idea. There are so many different types of facial, but they all follow the same steps. Every facial includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, massaging and putting on a mask after which your face will look fresh, clean and young. You can go for the popular ones like the anti-aging facial, European facial or deep-cleansing facial. If you are not sure which one to pick out for yourself, many spas also have estheticians who can give you advice about the right facial for your skin type. Some spas even offer extra features like peel-off masks, special ampules or serums and LED light therapy.
Health & Nutrition
More and more spa and wellness centers all over the world, especially in Australia, are becoming all-inclusive, thus including treatments, therapies, medical testing, advice, and training for all aspects of our lives. You can cure both your body and soul. Our health stems from what we eat and that’s why it’s essential to eat properly. General tendencies are fine, but we are all different and thus we need varied diets. Some wellness centers provide clinic testing, medical pathology, and other necessary testing and assessment in order to determine your overall health and to detect problems if any. Based on the results, they suggest your further treatment and create your own personalized diet plan. Nutritionists in Sydney and all other cities in the world can help you make a customized and proper diet regime.
The main purpose of body treatments is to exfoliate your skin. Our outermost skin is full of dead cells which can be removed with body scrubs and peelings. This treatment usually consists of a scrub being applied and then rubbed off by taking a shower after which lotion is applied. It is common to combine body scrubs with body wraps. There are two main purposes of body wraps: to hydrate your skin with moisturizers and to detoxify your skin with different treatments such as the application of mud, clay or seaweed. If you decide to take on this cleansing combo, then after the body scrub treatment, cream, mud, clay or seaweed will be applied to your skin and you will be wrapped up and kept warm for about 20 minutes. After this, your skin will be as good as new!
A lot of wellness centers offer therapies not only for the body but for the soul and mind as well. You can learn how to meditate and thus improve your physical and social function. The so-called mindfulness-based therapy treatments have been found to ease the pain in people who suffer from cancer, multiple sclerosis, and many others. It also has positive effects on one’s general well-being, physical and mental health. A regular practice of meditation increases antibodies to influenza, lowers stress-related hormones in the blood, decreases anxiety and depression, reduces stress we face every day and enables you to focus on your task wherever you are. If you haven’t tried it yet, take a shot and experience all the positive aspects it brings.
If you still don’t have a habit of going on healthy vacations such as visiting or booking a wellness center, you should definitely make it a habit. After this kind of experience, you will feel like you have been reborn.
