5 Reasons to Treat Yourself to the Spa


First time spa goers are often pleasantly surprised by all the added benefits a visit to the spa can bring. Often times people envision going to a spa to be laying down with cucumbers on eye lids, but a getaway weekend or regular visits can do wonders to help increase one’s health and mental state.

If you have yet to go to a spa there has never been a better time to treat yourself to a spa weekend and see what you have been missing out on. For those that perhaps went once, a long time ago, gear yourself up again. There are many reasons to make regular spa visits a part of a healthy lifestyle.

Here are five reasons why going to the spa can bolster your health:

Care for you Skin

A visit to the spa can do wonders to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful. Spa professionals will work with you to use the best products unique for your skin to help give you that beautiful glow. Treatments can help diminish signs of aging as well as to help treat acne and breakouts.

Bonding Time

Planning your time to the spa can be either a solo and multi person experience. It’s for you to decide what will suite your needs best! If you are needing some reflection time, plan a solo spa retreat. Or use the time as a special bonding time between you and child, relative or close friend. The great thing about spa getaways is they can be done any time of year and it doesn’t matter what the weather is. It’s a great way to have some much needed time to either yourself or spend it with someone near and dear to you.

Reduce Stress and Boost Immunity

Studies have shown that having a massage can reduce the stress inducing hormone cortisol. Relaxing at the spa can help slow heart rate and bring down blood pressure. When we feel relaxed our immunity tends to also increase. Our ‘natural fighter cells’ have a chance to grow and flourish which give us a better chance of fighting off colds and illness as they are our first defense against invaders.

Boost Mood and Gain Clarity

Most people are hard pressed to go to the spa and not feel better. The atmosphere is intentionally relaxing and this is a time to take care of you. In today’s modern and fast paced world self-care is more important and necessary. Going to spa allows for our minds to slow down and quiet themselves. Especially if you might have a big work or life decision looming over your head, a spa weekend might be one of the best ways to gain clarity on the situation.

Create a Healthier Lifestyle

Regular visits to the spa can help grow a healthier lifestyle. Many spas are proud to let customers know about the eco-consciousness when helping you choose which products to use. Some spas also have gym or pool access as part of their packages. Staying fit and healthy plays an important role too just as finding the best products to use on your skin. When you are at the spa your chances of meeting like-minded people who are also interesting and taking active steps to better their life also increase. You will have a much higher chance of meeting someone who shares those similar values at the spa.

If you have never been to the spa or it’s been a long time since you have gone back, book yourself a weekend retreat today. There has never been a better time to enjoy the benefits of going to the spa than now.
