So you are in need of a rescue spa day? We all need a bit of self-care and self-love. Spa days are super important for working professionals. Women are particularly in need of rescue spa days because women tend to be less apt to do things for themselves. Women are natural caregivers and nurturers. It easy to get caught up in others’ well being that you forget to tend to yourself.
If you don’t have access to a spa or a retreat or cannot afford it, don’t worry. You can re-create a spa day easily at home.
Below are 9 reasons why you should treat yo-self with a rescue spa day!
9. A Rescue Spa Day Can Help You De-stress
Sometimes all you need is a moist lavender wash cloth. The spa is relaxing not just in the treatments offered but in the ambiance. It’s the whole package: the lightning, the aromas, the coal stones, the massage table, and water jets. If you cannot go to the spa, let the spa come to you. Put on a nice bubble bath, pour yourself a glass of wine, and let the podcasts and music flow. Just remember to lock the bathroom door before embarking on your mental vacay.
8. You Will Breathe Easy and Will Improve Blood Circulation
Say it with me, SAUNA SESH. The great things about a rescue spa day is having access to facility saunas. The high temperatures will improve your respiratory system. You literally will breath easier. You can soothe your asthma and cough. Not to mention, you can clear out those pesky sinuses. Saunas are also great for contemplation. If you have a problem that needs some tinkering, sit in the sauna and let the heat stimulate your mental workout.
After the sauna, consider taking a nap on the massage table. Massages will improve blood flow and circulation. It will also alleviate many aches and joint pains. Just make sure you let your therapist know of any existing conditions. Plus, legs massages can help with varicose veins.
