Spa visits: A smart investment in your health
By Sara Hellgren
What was once considered to be luxurious relaxation for the lucky few has now become a popular health investment. I’m talking about spa visits.
Given the pandemic in recent years, most of us have come to realise the importance of strengthening the immune system and keeping ourselves in the best possible condition to maintain good health.
Did you know that a simple spa visit is not only a relaxing experience – it also generates fantastic health benefits. Massage, for example, has magical effects that include the release of the well-being hormone oxytocin. Oxytocin relieves pain, speeds up the healing of wounds and injuries, lowers blood pressure and strengthens the immune system. In addition, it also helps to improve our mental health by reducing feelings of fear, stress and anxiety and improving our sleep.
In other words, a simple massage is a smart investment in your health. All 44 members of Svenska Spahotell offer massage treatments. If you visit a spa hotel that doesn’t offer massage treatments, it is not a ‘real’ spa. That’s because spa is based on a philosophy that consists of four cornerstones – and tactile touch in the form of body treatments is one of them.
