1. Detox Vacations
The world has moved on from those days when you had to eat just small portions of food and starve yourself to get a fit and healthy body. Now you can go on a detox vacation by drinking healthy, fruit juices and nutritious food, which brings us to the next trend…
2. Nutritional advice
Spas were earlier meant to provide temporary solutions to your wellness problems but now people can afford to spend the time and money required for permanent fixes.

3. Personalized Massages
Massages have always been one of the most popular spa services but nowadays, well informed clients want to customize the massages they receive in accordance to their personal health and lifestyle needs. Someone might want to make the arthritis pain recede while another might want to heal muscle injury, in each case; the type of massage would be different.
4. Tai Chi
Spa brands are always looking for ways to instill a sense of wellness beyond the massage table or the yoga mat and in 2017; the best ways to do that are going to be meditation and tai chi classes which use virtual reality technology to inculcate a harmony between body and mind.
5. No Smoking retreat
How many times have you tried quitting smoking but due to work related pressure and stress, you never got around to doing it? Book yourself a trip to a no smoking facility which would help you build healthy habits and how to avoid the triggers to smoking so that they don’t get the best of you.
6. Wellness for family
You can enjoy some quality bonding time with our whole family at certain facilities which take care of all your wellness needs, starting from your head to toe. Spa services are available for both the aged and the children in your family so that no one feels left out.

De-Stressing With Essential Oils
Stress affects almost every area of our lives, from our personal interactions with others to our professional capabilities and even our sleep. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to reduce stress. One of these involves using essential oils.
Essential oils are the concentrates that are obtained from certain plants. Different oils have different properties and offer different benefits. Lavender, rose, chamomile, ylang ylang, juniper berry and neroli are some of the essential oils that are very effective at helping to relieve stress. To get the maximum benefit of these oils it is very important to learn how to use them properly.
How To Use Essential Oils For Stress Relief
Essential oils should never be used by themselves as they are very potent in their pure form. Before use any essential oil it should always be blended with a carrier oil such as jojoba or almond oil. The blended oil can then be used in various ways.
- It can be massaged into the skin.
- Put a few drops on your pillow before you go to sleep.
- Put a few drops on a warm compress and place the compress over your forehead.
- Add a few drops to bath salts and soak in it for a while for a most relaxing experience.
One of the best ways to enjoy the stress-relief benefits of essential oil is by burning them in a diffuser. The diffuser dispels the aroma of the oil via the heat sources but without posing any health risks. Burning a few drops of essential oil in a diffuser can create a fabulously calming, relaxing atmosphere in the entire room! It’s perfect to use in the bedroom for a good night’s sleep that will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged and reenergized for the day ahead.
Foot reflexology is a highly specialized technique in which pressure is applied to certain areas and points on the foot. This pressure is applied using just the fingers and thumbs.
Reflexology works on the principle that there are specific areas and reflex points in the foot that correspond to specific organs and systems of the body. When a point or area in the foot is pressed, it has a positive effect on the corresponding organ and on your general health. For example, there is a particular spot in the foot that corresponds to the liver. When a reflexology practitioner applies appropriate pressure to this area, it helps improve the functioning of the liver.
It works the same way for all organs and systems within the body. The practitioner will choose the spot to apply pressure to depending on the ailment you are suffering from.
That’s Not All
While better health is by itself a compelling enough reason to book a reflexology massage, there are also other benefits that you will enjoy.
Foot reflexology massage can be relaxing and therapeutic too. It works wonders at alleviating pain in the feet that is caused by conditions such as plantar fasciitis and ankle injuries or because of standing for long periods of time or even just doing your daily chores.
During a foot reflexology appointment, the massage therapist applies traditional and sport massage techniques to the foot, upper leg and calf areas. In addition to reducing pain in these areas, reflexology also decreases the stress and anxiety in the entire body.
The therapeutic and health benefits of foot reflexology are hard to ignore. Our feet bear the brunt of our weight whether we are standing still, walking or running. Isn’t it time we take better care of them?
