It’s never good to feel under the weather, but it happens to even the healthiest people. When you have cold-like symptoms, you don’t have to suffer endlessly. With these certain spa treatments, you can help ease cold-like symptoms, shorten your downtime, and start to feel more like yourself again by the time your spa visit is over.
Massage therapy works on all levels to help ease cold-like symptoms. Massage boosts circulation, which can help your body to heal faster. Massage helps you to relax, which helps to distract you from your symptoms, giving you instant relief from discomfort. When you get a spa massage, your esthetician can help to reduce pain in trouble spots. Those aches and pains of a cold can go away under the expert hands of a licensed masseuse.
One of the most relaxing ways to spend an afternoon at the spa is also one of the most effective ways to feel better when you have a cold. A steam sauna has been shown to be effective against cold-like symptoms like congestion and muscle aches and pains. In fact, in one study, regular steam saunas reduced the incidence of getting a cold in the first place.
Aromatherapy can take place during your spa visit while you’re receiving any number of spa treatments such as a manicure or massage. If your cold-like symptoms include common problems like headache, fatigue, or clogged sinuses, aromatherapy can probably help. Ask your aromatherapist for essential oils such as peppermint for fatigue and headache, and eucalyptus for congestion.
While it might feel hard to justify taking a sick day off work and heading to the spa, there’s ample justification in getting these spa treatments to help you feel better. Book your spa day now!
