Top 5 Most Popular Spa Treatments

Spending time in a spa is a luxury we canít always afford, but if you want to relax, lose weight, detox, or even enjoy a bit of bonding with your best friends or partner, nothing beats a trip to a luxury spa.

Both the traditional and medical spa industries saw tremendous growth during 2016. Spas are viewed as a luxurious but affordable treat. They are a sign of our increasing desire to live a healthy life. Spa treatments reflect the latest health and wellness trends. You can have weight loss treatments, detox, or just chill out. A trip to a spa is a chance to escape everyday life. Celebrities book a spa break when the pressures of fame get too much, whereas ordinary folk are more likely to book a spa weekend as a hen party treat.

Whatever your reasons for visiting a spa, whether you want to visit a medical spa for a CoolSculpting treatment or you want to visit a traditional spa for a massage and to relax, here are the top five spa treatments everyone should try at least once.

Sports massages are rarely very relaxing, but if you pay a visit to a spa and book a soothing massage treatment, you will find the experience a lot more enjoyable. Abdominal massages help to relieve congestion in the digestive system and lymphatic drainage massages are good for encouraging the release of harmful toxins.

More than half of spa visitors book a facial during their stay. There are dozens of different facial treatments, depending on whether you want to target problem skin or wrinkles. Itís a good idea to spend some time in the steam room before you have a facial, as this opens up the pores and relaxes your muscles. Once your face has been cleansed and scrubbed, you will feel fresh and radiant.

Spa Wrap
Spa wraps are used to detoxify the body, soothe the skin, and tone up problem areas. Legend tells us that Cleopatra loved to bathe in milk, so we know that milk is wonderful for the skin. A milk and honey wrap combined is intensely relaxing and hydrating. Your skin will feel wonderfully nourished after this spa session. Algae and mud wraps are also very popular Ė and good for wrinkles!

Manicure and Pedicure
A spa visit is a great excuse to have a relaxing manicure and pedicure. Who doesnít like to go home with perfectly manicured nails? Have your fingernails and toenails polished, shaped and decorated. You might want to combine your spa treatment with reflexology and a massage.

Steam and Sauna
Spas always have a steam room and sauna adjacent to the pool area. Go for a swim in the pool followed by a dip in the ice cold plunge pool and then you are ready for a session in the steam room or sauna. Heat makes us sweat, which is all part of the detox process. Exposure to heat also encourages weight loss.
