Ah, out of all the places that I wished I could be right now, lying on the softness and plumpness of a massage spa bed is on top of my wish list. With soft music playing in the corner, and a gentle hand rubbing and working all over my backs—the stress-relieving massages are the ultimate self-care we deserve. Especially during this difficult time when our minds (and bodies) seem to be wandering all over the place, the feeling of stressness and burns out are taking over our Dopamine. 

And as important it is for you to take care of your face, you need to start doing the same fervor for your body. We tend to forget that our body tends to age faster than our faces.  Therefore, proper care and protection is a must to keep your body in check. Of course the first step of body care starts with the best retreats and reflexology treatments you could ever experience. A massage is a vital part of your body’s healing process. It activates the nervous system and helps the body move blood and lymph fluid. It can also stimulate the endocrine system and relieve stress.

And if you might think, ‘’We’re currently under lockdown! All massage spas are closed’’. No worries, you can pin this article until we’re safe to go out again! Below, you can find Beauty Insider’s recommendations for the best massage spa to visit once they’re all open again—and you can get the relaxation you deserve. 

The Importance Of Body Massage

When we think of a massage spa, we tend to think there could only be one treatment available but, to our surprise, there are different types of retreats available—depending on what your body needs, of course. Deep pressure massage, light pressure massage, and muscle stretching are some of the most common treatments you can find in literally any massage spa near you. A full-body massage is totally relaxing and uplifting. 

And while massage treatments can be done for various reasons, it is commonly known for relaxing and aligning your muscles and joints. In addition to treating conditions that are usually triggered by stress, massage can also be utilized for treating various other conditions. Some if include: 

  • Increase your Dopamine and Serotonin level 
  • Improve blood circulation, energy and mind awareness
  • Reduce muscle pain, joint pain and tension
  • Lower your blood pressure and control heart rate 
  • Improve your immune function

The Side Effects Of Massage

Despite its benefits, massage is not a substitute for regular medical care, per se. It’s still not a substitute for regular examinations and treatment plans. Some forms of massage may leave you feeling a bit stiff the next day. But it should not be considered painful or uncomfortable. Similar to yoga and certain exercise movements, you need to be very careful on what you choose to position your bodies. Talk to your doctors regarding your health, and if there is indeed any trauma that your body has gone through. Remember, not all massage treatments are suitable for everybody. A slight pain can impact your whole joint system, so be careful.
