October is Emotional Wellness Month, and while many elements contribute to your emotional state being as healthy as it can be – including a nutritious diet, regular exercise, therapy sessions and a high self-esteem – taking time for yourself to schedule a few spa treatments can also bolster your emotional health more than you may realize. This is accomplished by not only putting you in a good mood, but by also improving your physical and mental states, which both directly affect your emotional health. Read on for how spa treatments can benefit you physically, mentally and emotionally, and how they can boost your overall health.
Physical Benefits of Spa Treatments
Regular spa goers are known to have higher quality sleep habits and need less sick days. This is not surprising when you look at the long list of benefits from treatments like massages, facials, body treatments and nail treatments. For example, massages can improve blood circulation, regulate blood pressure, ease pain and boost immunity. Facials purify and nourish your body’s largest organ, your skin. Body treatments also improve circulation and ease muscles, and nail treatments prevent fungi from growing under your nails. Spa treatments can enhance your physical health to an extent that causes many of our regular clients to consider their treatments necessities, not indulgences.
Mental Benefits of Spa Treatments
Human touch – which is essential to most spa treatments – is known to release oxytocin, a hormone that combats stress, as well as dopamine and serotonin – two chemicals that activate the pleasure center of your brain and help regulate your mood. Spa treatments that utilize touch also activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which brings your body into a content and calm resting state. This allows your body to recover and your mind to relax.
Emotional Benefits of Spa Treatments
When dealing with physical and mental ailments, your emotional health takes a toll. Spa treatments help heal your physical and mental states, allowing you to cultivate an overall sense of well-being. If you’ve been plagued by emotional issues and trauma, this helps you have a more positive outlook on life and feel strong enough to tackle your problems head on. Spa treatments also help your natural beauty shine, allowing you to truly appreciate your body and its unique features.
A few spa treatments may not fix all your health issues, but they certainly will help bolster other wellness efforts, and provide an excellent way to maintain your health, physically, mentally and emotionally.
