Traditionally a day spa treatment would take place in a small villa tucked away in relaxing surroundings; however, these facilities are now available freely in both tucked away locations and on major city streets.
To ensure one receives the most suitable treatment one must assess the particular needs. This article will provide information on the various types of treatments available at a spa.
The Aromatic Rejuvenation
While water is the key element in all spa treatments, the core of aromatic rejuvenation methods is the aromatic anti-oxidant. This treatment is one of the most effective conditioning therapies which begins with exfoliation of the skin. This exfoliation is then followed by a ‘body wrap’ – a wrapping of one in anti-oxidants. The final step to an aromatic rejuvenation procedure is the aromatherapy facial using various aromatic essences.
The Aromatherapy Massage
Similar to the aromatic rejuvenation procedure, the aromatherapy massage will condition the skin and revitalize it. The therapist utilizes a variety of aromatic oils to penetrate the body making the skin glow. The oils chosen will depend on one’s skin type and the effect one is trying to achieve with the massage. For example, lavender oil is utilized when trying to create a calming effect; however, mint is used when looking to stimulate the senses. It is important to consider medical conditions when undergoing this treatment as some individuals may have an adverse reaction to organic oils.
The Healing Stone Therapy
This treatment has been developed from Eastern methods using the philosophy of chakra balance. A chakra is an internal energy that maintains the different psychological elements in one’s body. The treatment involves the use of hot stone massage and aromatherapy which increases energy stimulation while soothing the spinal column. This is important as a readjustment or treatment of the spinal column can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
The Reflexology Treatment
Similar to the healing stone option, the reflexology treatment adopts its philosophy from Eastern traditions and ideals. Instead of focusing on the spine, reflexology identifies the foot as the center of a person’s energy. By massaging this area with organic oils one should experience a stimulation of energy with feelings of relaxation.
Final Words On The Matter
As can be seen there are various treatments available at a day spa. Using the information above one can make an informed decision regarding the most suitable therapy.
