Stress and your body – how spa can help
Stress can manifest itself in physical form. Medical research has found dozens of illnesses directly linked to stress. Symptoms include difficulty breathing, elevated heart rate, headaches, back aches, upset stomach, and skin rashes.
The fight-or-flight response of the body activates stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol when you are in danger. However, when hormones are released without these conditions present, they can do more damage to the body. Prolonged exposure to stress hormones can cause wear and tear on the heart, lungs, blood circulation, digestive system, and other functions of the body.
Stress can also lead to mental or behavioural disorders. Anxiety, depression, panic, and feelings of hopelessness are often associated with physical stress.
Beat stress and book a luxurious spa near your Sydney accommodation
Relaxation is the best way to combat stress overload.
There are many types of spas. Some are in resorts and hotels where one can book an entire weekend. Day spas are for people who do not have the luxury of time – a few hours of pampering can help rejuvenate the body and clear the mind.
Spas offer a wide variety of services from head to foot: facials, hair styling, manicures and pedicures, massages, steam rooms, saunas, baths and body scrubs, aromatherapy, waxing, and even laser scar treatment.
Resort spas often have a pool for swimming or aqua exercises. Hot tubs are excellent for releasing tension while saunas and steam rooms open up your pores while you relax.
Full-service spas sometimes offer alternative techniques such as yoga, Pilates, meditation, and Tai Chi to help you find your inner peace.
Day spas are becoming increasingly popular because they are more accessible and affordable than resort spas. You can come in during your lunch break or day off without blowing your savings.
A lot of people go to the spa for a full body massage. Some like the pressure to be hard, while others prefer moderate pressure. If your aches and pains are confined to a specific area, you may opt for a massage that focuses on the head, back, or legs. Hand and foot reflexology involves pressing certain pressure points with thumb, finger, and hand techniques to offer relief.
After a long, gruelling week, go all out and pamper yourself at a posh Sydney spa! Book a spa day complete with facials, hair treatments, nail art, skincare, and aromatherapy at a top spa near your Sydney accommodation today.
