Targets, deadlines, long work hours, an unhealthy diet and lack of sleep have become a part and parcel of modern life in cities around the world. The irony of the whole situation is that we are all aware of the causes of stress and the need for a healthier and balanced lifestyle yet very few of us manage to achieve it. The feeling of stress is a reaction of the body’s defense mechanism to protect against injury and pain. Chronic stress causes the muscles in the body to be in a more or less constant state of tension. When muscles are taut and tense for long periods of time, this may trigger other reactions of the body and even promote stress-related disorders. For example, both tension-type headache and migraine headache are associated with chronic muscle tension in the area of the shoulders, neck and head.
Spa treatments and massage therapies, which are quick and relatively affordable, create both mental and physical health benefits. In fact, studies have shown that the frequency of visiting a spa relates to better quality sleep, fewer sick days, reduced absenteeism from work and fewer hospitalisations. Hydrotherapy, heat therapy and massages both improve blood circulation and manage blood pressure.
