Back to school season is in full swing and Q4 is quickly approaching! If the daily grind is becoming stressful and life seems to be moving too quickly, consider a spa day this fall to relax, renew, and revitalize. A perfect precursor to the holidays ahead, a spa day treats the mind, body and spirit, offering luxurious relaxation that can assist with a variety of stress-related issues. Whether indulging in a relaxing massage or targeting sore muscles with a deep tissue approach, a day at the spa can benefit your immune system, muscles, and spirit. We’ve rounded up three reasons why reducing stress is an important part of health and wellness, so take time for yourself this fall and indulge in a spa day!
Boost your Immune System Before Flu Season Begins
With cooler weather comes flu and allergy season, which means it’s time to boost your immune system! Oftentimes the busier life gets the more run down we feel, depleting the body and opening the door for illness. According to a study from Live Science, massages help boost the immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells that help protect the body from foreign invaders. Regular massage (paired with a healthy diet and exercise) could be a great option to help ward off unwanted bouts of sickness. Treating yourself to a massage not only promotes relaxation, it gives your immune system a boost when cold and flu season kicks in.
Serenity is the Answer to Overwhelming Schedules
One of the best ways to unwind from a busy work week or school schedule is by finding a serene space. While that may seem easier said than done, finding a place to slow down and organize is key to a healthy state of mind. Rather than avoiding stress, find peace within it and make emotional wellness a priority. Treat yourself to a Burke Williams deep tissue massage or spa bath and unwind in a calm environment, and take advantage of world-class amenities that include a whirlpool, sauna, steam room, and cool misting room.
You Deserve It!
Spa days provide more than pampering, they promote health and wellness – and you deserve it! When creating your “to-do” lists this fall make sure relaxation finds a home on the page. Whether spending the day at Burke Williams or creating an at-home spa day with a warm bath and calming music, give yourself time to relax and unwind. The health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and promoting a healthy immune system, will carry you through the fall season and throughout the year – so plan your spa day today!
