Health Benefits of a Massage

Sabrina Spa Notes , ,

Who doesn’t love taking a step back from reality to enter the ultimate stage of serenity? Massages have always been a well-regarded method to take time out from the stressors in our daily lives. However, there is much more to massage therapy than meets the eye. Massage therapy not only brings us peace, but it includes a multitude of health benefits. Here are some ways we can truly benefit by integrating massage therapy into our regimen.

Counterbalance Postural Stress

Like much of America, our corporate jobs require us to sit at a desk most hours of the day. Hours of hovering over a desk can cause a perpetual hunch, wrecking our posture. Whether you sit at a desk most hours of the day or not, postural stress is extremely common. Massage therapy can help relieve pain associated with postural stress and improve posture over time.

The Power of Meditation

Sabrina Spa Notes ,

Despite meditation’s steady gain in popularity in recent years, many may find they know little of what the practice entails or the benefits it can reap. The idea that mediation is reserved for Buddhist monks and yogis is simply not true. Whether you’re searching for enlightenment or just craving a moment of peace, anyone can benefit from practicing meditation.

Practiced for thousands of years, meditation began as an exercise for spiritual growth. Secular meditation emphasizes relaxation, self-improvement and stress reduction. Not only can meditation benefit your emotional well-being, but your overall health as well.

Let’s Wrap This Up!

Sanctuary Spa Service Spotlight

Body WrapBody wraps have been around since ancient Egypt, Greece and Roman times to help detoxify, relax and moisturize the body. Now we even have wraps to help with cellulite reduction, anti-aging,firming, contouring, soothing, and energy. The question is, do they really work?

Many articles have been written either praising the benefits or criticizing and claiming it is as quack logic. My firm belief is that there are definitely gimmicks out there, where all you lose is water weight or the technicians use tricks to make you appear to lose those inches. But a wrap should not make any promises or guarantees. Every “body” is unique, therefore, it will react differently to the wraps. The ingredients being used are also crucial to what outcome you will have with a wrap.

My First Facial: Sharing my Experience by Rashida Alisha Hagakore

Sanctuary Spa Spa Stories

Having crossed the threshold into my 30’s, the significance of my face has come to the fore. Despite my no-makeup policy, washing my hair with baking soda and vinegar, using a salt rock for deodorant, and keeping my upkeep simplistic and natural, I have been noticing little lines that don’t wash away, small changes near my eyes, subtle shifts where my smile happens in the cheeks. Balancing between accepting What Is and improving my epidermal state of affairs, I wanted to experience the ritual of the facial. Not all facials are created equal, so I am told; lucky for me my first facial happened at one of the top rated (and first) day spas Houston has ever had, Sanctuary Spa d’sante.
