Unlike salon day spas, Therapeutic Day Spas promote physical, spiritual and emotional well-being in a quiet, serene setting. They may offer:
- Massage Therapy
- Jin Shin Jyutsu
- Healing Touch
- Herbal Wraps
- Hatha Yoga
- Movement Therapies
- Skin care
- Hand and Foot Treatments
Therapeutic Day Spas are generally more health oriented rather than beauty oriented, although everyone feels beautiful by the time they leave. Some offer both half days and full days of relaxation. Full days may include a healthy lunch. Some offer professional Herbal Consultations by appointment. In addition to Massage Therapy, natural products may be purchased to augment your healing:
- Herbs and Teas
- Natural Body Care
- Gifts and Gift Certificates
Recent studies have shown that in addition to relieving pain, Therapeutic Massage can reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, increase circulation, improve range of motion and increase endorphins that speed healing. Numerous studies also show that Massage Therapy helps alleviate stress. Considering that nearly 80% of disease is stress related, services found in the Therapeutic Day Spa are excellent health promotion choices to implement into today’s active lifestyles.
