Whether or not self-care has been part of your normal routine before this year, your body is telling you it’s time to help it recover from stress and disruptions. A day at a luxurious spa can feel like a week on vacation. But day spa services and massages are more than just pampering; 85% of women and men have used massage for medical reasons, too.

Combine the healing properties and soothing scents of essential oils made from flowers and herbs with deep-tissue or Swedish massage. Your therapist chooses a scent that helps you achieve a desired state of mind.
The oils stimulate your olfactory system, which then triggers your brain to release soothing chemicals such as endorphins and oxytocin. Deep-tissue massage is an intense massage that’s focused on releasing tension in the deep layers of your muscles and fascia. Swedish massage is gentler and promotes overall relaxation.
While you relax, your therapist scrubs your back with a mixture of aromatic oils and sea salt. The salt exfoliates your skin while the essential oils penetrate your skin for therapeutic benefits. After the scrub, you shower and then receive a soothing massage.
A form of deep-tissue massage, shiatsu helps your body heal itself. The therapist uses their fingers, thumbs, and palms to apply pressure on specific points throughout your body. Shiatsu improves the flow of energy and removes blockages that can cause pain and stress.
