Although designed to be an escape from stress, vacations are not always stress-free. The planning and booking part could leave you exhausted. Getting a spa treatment on vacation could be an awesome way to de-stress yourself and feel rejuvenated. Of the different types of treatments, choosing the one that benefits your body the most is not easy (especially if you don’t know a lot about spa therapies). In this blog post, we give an overview of the common types of spa treatments that you must try on a vacation.
Aromatherapy is done with essential oils derived from plant material. It involves classic massage techniques focusing on kneading and long strokes, and is fantastic for deep relaxation and stress relief. The masseur will ask you to choose an oil depending on your need such as cleansing, decongesting, calming or energizing.
- Swedish Massage
If you are going for a spa treatment for the first time or don’t get massage regularly, go for a Swedish spa treatment. You can ask the therapist to be slow and gentle or bracing and vigorous. A Swedish massage is for those who want to feel relaxed after 50-60 minutes of the session. The masseur kneads the muscles, applies light pressure with knuckles and fingertips and goes for broad strokes in Swedish massage.
- Ayurvedic Massage
Ayurvedic massage is related to healthy mind and spirit, so every session is personalized in terms of oils, techniques, and movements for every individual. The therapist focuses on pressure points during the Ayurvedic massage. It is great for the cleansing of the body, detoxification, improving overall well-being and strengthening of the immune system.
- Hot Stone Massage
The masseur places heated stones on specific parts of the body. These are mostly river rocks and other types of smooth basaltic rocks. Before the therapy begins, rocks are heated in boiling water for sanitization. As the iron content is high in basaltic rocks, these are able to retain heat for a long time. The heat relaxes the muscles, eases tension and relieves the soreness in muscles.
