We work so hard during the year and sometimes the only thing that keeps us sane is the odd spa massage treatment and the prospect of taking some time off for a few weeks of well-deserved holiday. But travelling is a grueling experience and you need enormous reserves to keep your sense of humor through the flight delays, lost baggage and overzealous passport scrutinizing. Even if the trip was setback free there are still bump and jostle bruises, cricks in the joints and sore muscles.
In short we arrive for our long anticipated holiday feeling battered, bruised and exhausted. We then have to dig deep to find the reserves to relax and enjoy ourselves. No-wonder people say “phew! I could do with a holiday” having just come back from their holiday. Instead of lurking in the half light of your room, drinking water and balling your feet on the carpet (a cure for jet-lag apparently, although the water is a good idea), book yourself into a spa to get some emergency travel fatigue treatment.
Travelling affects your sleep
Even if your trip was relatively local – travelling can still affect your usual sleep patterns. Not to mention all the new sounds emanating from your chosen holiday accommodation. The more relaxed you are during the day the better you will sleep that night.
A spa massage is the perfect way to distance yourself from all the travel/work stress, calm the nerves and instill a deep sense of harmony and relaxation. Once you have had a good night’s sleep and are feeling relaxed, you will slip into holiday mode faster than your un-massaged co-workers (who are probably still trying to shed their post-work, post-travel shell-shock).
Fix the aches, pains and stiff muscles with a Massage Treatment
A year spend looming over a computer can give you a real crick in the neck, tight shoulder muscles and a sore back. Those complaining joints and muscles will only protest louder on the journey to your holiday destination. Massage treatments help the muscles relax and stimulate blood flow to the skin and tissues, which in turn helps the muscles to heal.
Healthy looking holiday skin
Traveling, stress and eating all that airplane, airport and service station food puts a real strain on the skin, complexion and good looks. Combine a Skin Care Treatment with a massage to renew and rejuvenate tired, travel weary skin.
Let’s face it the main reason why we go on holiday is to give the mind, body and soul some much needed time to recover from our demanding daily lives. There is nothing like booking yourself into a spa and getting pampered from head to toe to help you change mental gears from work mode to relax and enjoy mode.
