You Look Great! And You Feel Even Better

Spa & salon treatments offer many benefits, both physical & emotional.

 

The mind/body connection is a well-known, powerful factor in sports. A positive attitude can have an amazing impact on physical performance, and there is considerable evidence that physical activity is linked to psychological health.

In fact, a recent study at the University of Cambridge in England studied how lifestyle choices, such as physical activity, affect people’s moods and overall happiness. Although the study did not determine cause – whether feeling good spurs people on to more activity, or whether activity causes us to feel better – it did establish that movement goes hand in hand with feeling happier.

Just like exercising, taking care of yourself in other ways strongly influences your overall sense of well-being. Spa and salon treatments, such as massage, facials, nail care and hair care, offer many benefits, both physical and emotional.

Nail care is as important for men as it is for women. Regular manicures and pedicures not only keep hands and feet looking good, but they also prevent such painful problems as torn cuticles, ingrown nails and calluses. Customized facials and appropriate skin care products can counteract the detrimental effects of the sun, saltwater and wind, and protect your skin going forward. Special treatments can help your face look as young as that body you’re striving to keep fit.

Outdoor activities take a toll on hair, too. Conditioning treatments can repair damage and an expert haircut and color can make you look terrific even after swimming or boating. A spray tan works wonders for your morale when you’re baring your pale winter bod in the spring, and gives you that glowing, sun kissed look without risking serious skin damage.

One of the best benefits of personal care services is the “care” itself. Having professionals take care of you is a part of taking care of yourself. It’s a reward to your body and a treat for your soul. And there’s nothing quite like the endorphin rush you get when someone says, “You look great!”
