Whether it’s work-related stress or a severe case of cabin fever, taking time to escape from the everyday and indulge in luxurious relaxation is a must.

From treating tight muscles knotted with worry to soothing a body that’s been worn out from an active lifestyle, there’s a massage that’s the perfect anecdote to life’s challenges. Treating yourself is more than an indulgence, it’s a way to ensure your energy level and spirits will remain high. Check out the massages and at-home tips below and take time for a little TLC!
While it doesn’t always seem apparent in day-to-day life, people often place the needs of others ahead of their own. Whether it’s work-related anxiety, caring for family, or just general exhaustion, The Burke Williams Massage is an opportunity to give your body (and mind) some love. This signature, flagship massage can aid in reducing anxiety, enhance immunity, lessen depression, increase circulation, and help with migraines. If it’s been a particularly rough day and a spa getaway doesn’t fit into your schedule, create your own quiet room at home. Find a quiet place and light a lavender candle, put a hot towel behind your neck, lay fresh cucumbers on your eyes, put your feet up and unwind. Allowing a moment of peace will help keep you calm and recharge your energy. You deserve it!
Fitness junkies and outdoor enthusiasts often feel the pain of muscle strain, and massage therapy can promote healing and pain relief. By warming and stretching tight muscles, Burke Williams Deep Tissue Massage can flush out swelling in the joints. It also increases flexibility and aids with issues that arise from injury or overuse. Lower back pain is also a common and often ignored issue, and massage can ease the pain and bring you a greater range of motion (and happiness!). Too sore to head to the spa? Make your own muscle relaxing bubble bath and foot scrub for at-home TLC! Mix two cups Epsom salt with one cup baking soda and top it off with a few drops of lavender essential oil – it’s a great alternative to the spa if leaving the house isn’t an option.
BALANCING MIND, BODY & SPIRIT
While it’s important to take care of your body, caring your mind is equally as important (and often overlooked). Burke Williams new Ayurvedic Body Treatments balance the mind, body and spirit, and are based on the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda. The Shirodara Body Treatment calms the central nervous system and achieves a heightened state of awareness and relaxation. This body treatment is the ultimate in TLC, and ends with the Shirodhara: a constant and gentle stream of oil poured over the forehead to open the third eye and balance the doshas. Need help finding your Zen at home? Play relaxing music and take time to breathe. Sit upright and cross-legged, and take ten deep breaths. Follow up with gentle stretching and remind yourself that peace is possible with a little TLC.
Taking time for yourself isn’t always easy, but it’s vital to maintaining a healthy, well rounded lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to make TLC a priority! For more information on Burke Williams menu of services, visit www.burkewilliamsspa.com.
