Are you ready for some serious pampering?

Let’s face it, life can be stressful, so every so often it is nice to be able to totally relax and enjoy yourself. There are many options for some good R and R, but spending the day at a Spa has to be one of the best choices, for being completely pampered and made to feel special. A Spa offers many different options for you to enjoy. Probably the most common and popular is a massage, which has been around for thousands of years and has numerous health benefits. There are a number of different massage options for you to choose from. While the two most common are the Swedish massage, which is generally a full body massage, though not too hard, while the deep tissue massage is much firmer and can address areas of muscle that are particularly tight. This is not an exclusive list though. Ask to see the Spa menu to see what other massage options are available if you want something different and specific to your needs.

Facials, manicures and body treatments

These are the next most popular options at most Spas. While facials have the same basic steps, cleanse, exfoliate, extract, massage and mask, again there are many variations on the theme. Think how wonderful it will be when the biggest decision you need to make today is which option to choose. If you are unsure, ask the staff for their recommendation. Manicures, or for the feet pedicures, are more complicated and complex than you might think at first glance. The popularity and fascination with nail art has increased in recent years and every Spa will have an option for you. Body treatments begin with a body scrub using an exfoliant agent to remove dead skin cells, followed by a shower. It can be a stand alone treatment, though is often combined with a body wrap, which will be either hydrating or detoxifying.

It isn’t just for the ladies

Spa treatment deals are also available for the men out there and they are increasingly taking advantage. According to the International Spa Association (SPA), the number of males’ visiting a Spa has risen from 31% to 47%, so quite literally anyone can visit to find relaxation and modern treatments.

If you are visiting a Spa for the first time, or if you know someone who you think could benefit from a Spa treatment session, it is remarkably easy to get started. One of the simplest ways to do it is to purchase a Spa Day voucher. These can be redeemed at Spas across the country, allowing you, or the recipient if you give it as a gift, to choose the exact day and Spa of your choice. You are encouraged to discuss your needs and to find out about Spa options with your voucher provider, who can then recommend the most suitable option. You don’t need to go alone either. Go with friends, take the husband or boyfriend, some Spas even welcome pets!

Everyone needs to feel a little bit special from time to time, and an afternoon, full day or even a weekend of pampering at a Spa will most definitely do that.
