6 Reasons For a Wellness Getaway with Sandos

Posted on 6 m read

When you allow yourself what you deserve, you attract what you need.

We live in challenging times in which uncertainty floods us with fear, anxiety, and stress during our daily routine. Although it is not easy to take a break from day to day and even less right now, having time to relax improves our quality of life and is essential to have good physical, mental and spiritual health.

There are many ways to balance our body and mind, such as walking, exercising, practicing yoga, reading, swimming, or going to a Spa. In this article, we are going to focus on the last one: going to a Spa. A Spa is much more than just going for a massage or relaxing; a Spa is living a whole wellness experience in which we allow ourselves to take care of ourselves.

A Getaway for Your Health

Next, we will explain the 7 reasons you should visit a Spa, specifically ours, the one we have at Sandos Monaco.

1. Physical benefits 

Thanks to the various natural treatments offered by a Spa, you will achieve muscle relaxation, so your ailments will improve significantly.

Many physicians and physical therapists recommend water-based therapies to their patients for the many positive points it provides.

A Spa offers many short-term benefits, especially on a physical level. Some of them are:

  • Relieve muscle and joint pain
  • They prevent tiredness, as well as insomnia
  • Increase the flexibility of muscles
  • They help heal muscle and cervical contractures
  • Activate blood circulation
  • They stimulate the immune system
  • Accelerate metabolism
  • Avoid hypertension
  • They hydrate the skin and avoid problems in the dermis
  • They have anti-inflammatory effects
  • They improve breathing and fight respiratory problems
  • They promote digestion and the functioning of the digestive system

All these are improvements that are achieved through hydrotherapy, but if we add to this a more specific treatment such as a massage or a thermal bath, the benefits will be even greater since they are more focused.

2. Psychological benefits

It is one of the main reasons why we go to a Spa. For years, a disease that reduces people’s health has been stressful; however, by visiting the Spa, you will have time for yourself and to focus on your body, a time for forgetting about the outside and feeling relaxed. If you can relax your body, your mind will too.

These are some of the psychological benefits you will get:

  • Increase body and mental energy
  • Fight anxiety and nerves
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase your self-esteem
  • Achieve emotional balance

3. Improved aesthetic appearance

Usually, whenever we talk about Spa, water, jets, relaxation come to mind, but why not take advantage of and also take care of our image? In a Spa, we can receive hand and foot treatments, exfoliation, and facial cleansing that will leave us with a more rejuvenated physical appearance. These are some of the aesthetic improvements that you can get if you go to a Spa:

  • Slow down the aging of the skin.
  • It helps to tone and remove dead cells from the dermis.
  • The skin is hydrated, nourished, and with a flawless complexion
  • If you have cellulite or fluid retention, it helps fight it.
  • It’s not like playing sports, but it also helps you lose weight.

4. Romantic escape

You can go to a Spa alone or with friends, but what if you take advantage of your visit to ours to strengthen your relationship with your partner?

Many times, we do not have enough time to enjoy our partnership with the day to day challenges. Other times we are tired or having a bad day, and we pay for it with our partner, from time to time it is suitable for couples to spend time with each other and what better occasion than to go to a Spa.

5.Elimination of toxins

This section could be one of the benefits of going to a Spa for your health. But we want to highlight it in a unique way. The body is subjected to two types of toxins every day: those that come from the outside, in the form of food, chemicals, medicines, alcohol, tobacco, pollution; and those that originate within us, the result of the natural combustion of all the organism’s functions.

Some toxins can be eliminated through the following treatments:

  • Body exfoliation
  • Facial Cleansing
  • Relax session.
  • Special foot and hand care
  • Bath, exfoliation and hydration.
  • Relaxation session

All these treatments can be done in our Spa. Another compelling reason to visit us every so often!
