The Many Benefits Of Spa Treatments
After a long week of late nights at the office, fulfilling family needs, and trying to fit in a good workout, it’s not surprising most Americans are feeling stressed. We have a lot on our plate! Most of us take too little time to pamper ourselves and the effects of stress take a toll on our skin, muscles, and mental health. Taking time to rejuvenate yourself at the spa is not only a pleasurable experience; it can actually be beneficial for your mental and physical health. Said NYU professor of psychiatry, Virginia Sadock, MD, “Going to a spa is a way of getting taken care of that is psychologically and culturally acceptable — and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time, and very often that can help us cope better with stress.” Juve Surgical offers many medical spa treatments, from facials to liposuction, at our Delaware surgical clinic. Read on to learn more about some benefits of spa treatments:
Did you know people’s skin suffers the most between seasons? Furthermore, depending on whether your skin is oily or dry, your skin may need more attention during the winter or summer months (read our blog about facials to learn more). Additional treatments with our cosmetic practitioners like microdermabrasion or chemical peels can restore tired, scared, or wrinkled skin to a more youthful and healthy appearance.
Muscle Relaxation or Pain Relief
Muscle tension can increase stress, aggravate pain, and even affect the quality of your sleep. Our licensed massage therapists offer a wide range of massage services lasting between 30-75 minutes to address your needs.
There is a strong correlation between feeling healthy and feeling self-confident.
Frequently treating yourself to little luxuries like massages or facials can help improve self-esteem because you are telling yourself you are worth taking care of. Leaving an appointment feeling rejuvenated does more than just improve your appearance, it can also help you feel more confident about yourself.
In two separate studies from Japan and Germany, researchers found that people who enjoyed frequent spa treatments missed work less often, enjoyed better health (including less hospitalizations), and had better mental health. Many researchers have also suggested that frequent massage improves circulation which can aid in many functions of the body.
In addition to the previously mentioned benefits of visiting a medical center that offers spa services, stress relief is a necessary part of coping with our busy lives. Enjoying the skilled touch of a massage therapist or relaxing while having your skin tended by an aesthetician can leave you feeling calm after a treatment.
Aside from traditional spa treatments, additional services like Botox® or dermal fillers can rejuvenate skin and leave you looking and feeling younger. At Juve Surgical we focus on helping our patients enjoy better health and a more youthful appearance.
