Spa Trends for 2010
who knew going to the spa could be so fashionable? yes, beauties, the spa is a place to relax and get pampered, but it's also a fabulous way to stay healthy (hey, mental and emotional health are so very important, too, you know).
on Spa Week's daily blog, they came up with a list of 12 trending spa treatments, and i thought you'd be happy to know there are some great treatments on the list! take a look at a few that sound very pampering and very beneficial for your health...
to fight allergies:
ugh, i know all too well how annoying allergies can be, so something like this is right up my alley. these treatments off things like sinus massages, breathe-easy facials and cold & flu bath salts-- perfect to soothe those pesky seasonal allergies.
get better beauty sleep:
if you battle with insomnia, you're in desperate need of a good night's slumber. proper REM cycles are just as rejuvenating as a spa treatment, so one of the hottest trends emerging in the industry is a dream-worthy mix of the two to promote better sleeping patterns. scents such as rosewood, valmarosa and Vanilla are used to guide you off to never-never land while massage techniques make for a complete relaxation experience.
hot and cold stone massages:
always a favorite treatment, especially during Spa Week (because they are always amazing!), the hot stone massage offers the perfect way to relax and rejuvenate. to give it a new twist, this treatment can now also include the application of cold stones. what's the benefit, you ask? well, not only does it add multi-dimensional stimulation (by alternating the hot and cool stones), but this method helps every cell in the body receive more oxygen and nutrients, while also encouraging a more effective removal of toxins.
there are other amazing new treatments that you'll want tot learn more about to prepare yourself for Spa Week-- read the full list of top spa trends by visiting Spa Week's blog!
