One of the most common stumbling blocks for people going for a massage treatment is that at some point you will have to bare some skin. Just to be clear you are never truly naked during any spa treatment, and our spa therapists are trained and professional.
Massage treatments are very beneficial and promote good health, but the massage treatment itself is far more effective when contact is not hindered by a layer of clothing. Here are some tips to make you feel more at ease.
Get some exercise
You don’t have to look like an Olympic athlete to feel comfortable taking off a few layers to reveal a bit of skin. Exercise strengthens and tones our muscles, so even if they are disguised by a bit of ‘winter padding’, you will still have a better self-image. Exercise, especially in nature, also boosts that feel good factor and improves your self-confidence.
Standing straight, shoulders back or in hero stance will make you look more healthy and stronger. Bad posture shows up your bumps and lumps and just makes your muscles tired and sore. Remember to make sure that your towel is on good and tight before you transition into your inner hero.
When your skin is tanned it helps to make any blemishes less visible. However, spending hours soaking up the sun is not healthy and most people only have the time for this when on holiday. Fortunately, Ginkgo Spas in Cape Town have a natural fade tan, which will make you look like you’ve spent the winter somewhere exotic.
Groom and preen
If you look good you will feel good and want to show it off, no point hiding away if you look fabulous. Ginkgo Spas have a fantastic range of facials, treatments, pedicures and manicures that will enhance your already beautiful self.
If you are being pampered you will be feeling wonderful no matter your state of undress. It is no coincidence that as one of the top spas in Cape Town we are really good at pampering our visitors.
