Picture yourself lying comfortably on a spa bed with a trained massage technician working out all the tension and knots in your shoulders and back. Perhaps, you’d enjoy a soothing facial to refresh your skin or a body wrap that rejuvenates by way of relaxing aromatherapy and scrubs to exfoliate your whole body. If this sounds amazing, imagine what regular spa visits could do for you.
Fairport and Henrietta, NY’s Pharaoh’s Hairum shares the top three reasons to visit the spa and how they benefit your health:
•Reduces Stress: A regular massage has been shown to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, relieving tension, lowering blood pressure, and slowing the heart rate. Massages also increase dopamine and serotonin, hormones that produce pleasure and regulate moods, causing an overall improvement in your temperament.
•Boosts Immunity: When your stress levels are lower, your body is in better shape to fight off illness. Studies have shown that spa treatments have increased immunity in individuals. Massages and other spa treatments are also pain relievers, soothing muscle pain and aiding in the relief of chronic headaches.
•Relieves PMS: For women, PMS symptoms are reduced when treated with massages. Pain and water retention are relieved, and mood swings are regulated after a visit to the spa. Even treatments, such as a pedicure or facial, are useful in relieving pain and tension as most spa specials come with massages of the area being treated.
A day at the spa is a healthy choice to make, so why not treat yourself to the salon’s many soothing spa treatments such as an anti-stress facial, hair and nail treatments, and the pharaoh’s signature body wrap? Pharaoh’s Hairum’s expert technicians only use organic, all-natural chemical-free products for every service.
