What to Look for in your Spa Treatment

Escape at Sanctuary Spa Houston

Spa treatments are a wonderful way to relax, revitalize your body and practice self-care. When done right, a spa treatment can be rejuvenating and stress relieving. But when the spa treatment is less than quality, it can cause you more stress and result in an uncomfortable experience. To ensure that you are getting the treatment you deserve, keep an eye out for some of these things during your spa experience.

Spa Atmosphere

A major part of a spa experience is the spa’s atmosphere. Cleanliness should always be a priority for a spa that wants to provide the best experience for their guests. Health and wellness are core values at Sanctuary Spa, and cleanliness is something we prioritize. We consistently sanitize our tools and environment. Maintaining a sanitary space provides well-being to not only our guests, but to the health of employees as well. In addition to cleanliness, aroma and atmosphere also play a major part in a spa experience. We use essential oils in many of our services – giving our guests an aromatic atmosphere that allows them unwind and experience tranquility.   READ MORE >

Essential Oils at Their Core

Sabrina Spa Notes ,
Essential Oils for Aromatherapy

We’ve all heard the term “essential oils” used before; however, how to best and properly use them to reap the many benefits they provide might not be so obvious. Essential oils provide great benefits to our skin, body, and hair, but they also aid in relaxation and emotional support. At Sanctuary Spa, we believe in using natural ingredients in our spa services because we love the holistic benefits they provide to the mind, body and spirit.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the concentrated liquids or oils that are obtained by distilling the seeds, leaves, branches, wood, bark, berries, flower, sap, needles or peels from plant botanicals. The oil that is produced during distillation retains the powerful properties that control the plant’s functions, quite like how human hormones, proteins and enzymes keep our bodies functioning at their best. Because of their chemical components, essential oils increase the body’s ability to receive the nutrients it needs to maintain optimum health. Our bodies are able to identify the natural composition of the oils and can more easily assimilate them for their therapeutic use.   READ MORE >
