Visiting a day spa is a great way to relax. They offer many services from massages to facials. Most have package deals for couples or parties. Day spas are much more than just a massage parlor now. They offer a wide array of services including some beauty treatments. One service offered is waxing and grooming. Most will offer electrolysis and waxing both in order to remove unwanted hair. Some even offer a technique of hair removal called threading, which is done with sewing thread. Electrolysis is permanent while threading and waxing are temporary. The spa also performs facials while teaching you how to care and treat your skin with everything from anti-aging solutions to acne treatment to techniques for applying make-up. They specialize in making your personal appearance superior. There are different specialized facials offered too, like for teens or for people that suffer from rosacea. Other services are for puffy eyes or cleansing the back. The facials are tailored to your skin type.

Some other beauty treatments are microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Microdermabrasion is resurfacing of your skin. It is used to reduce scars, lines or pigment changes. Chemical peels is a facial that rejuvenates your skin. Hydrotherapy is another service offered at a day spa. This is water therapy, using both hot and cold water internally and externally to increase blood flow. Another service offered is sunless tanning. The sunless tanner used in day spas are more than just a self tanner. It is a higher quality moisturizer with color. Not only does this give you that glow, but also hydrates your skin.

Massages are another popular service offered in day spas. There are several different types to help melt away your stress. Trigger Point, Deep Tissue and Swedish are the ones offered. They can be done alone or a combination of the three. Swedish massage is used for relaxation and uses long strokes. Deep Tissue uses deeper strokes than Swedish using a kneading pressure to relieve muscle pain. Trigger Point is a pain reducing massage specifically for muscles. Of course there are massages that are tailored for everyone. Enjoy a massage, Four Hand, using 2 massage therapists, or couple massage for newlyweds or any couple. There is also a special massage for pregnant women.

There is also saunas that is a great stress reliever. Most day spas use a Far Infrared Sauna that heats the body but not the air. It is great in detoxifying the body from harmful chemicals, drugs, alcohol and nicotine and building the body's immune system. It has been proven to improve cardiac conditions. Other uses for the Far Infrared Sauna are relief from painful muscles and joints, cellulite reduction, weight loss and purifying the skin.

Reviews:

My husband surprised me with a professional massage on our honeymoon. The therapist came to our room and set everything up right there. It was a total surprise! I really liked having someone come to the room and not having to go anywhere. I had never gotten a professional massage before and it just took away every little sore muscle I had. I was totally relaxed for days. I really recommend it, and making it a surprise like my husband did is a wonderful idea. It will score big points with your significant other.
