Chronic stress can negatively impact emotional regulation and leave you struggling with the blues or depression. Massage, infrared sauna, and other treatments can support your emotional and physical wellbeing.
According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 90% of illness has a link to stress. While unfortunately, we cannot eliminate all the anxiety in our lives, we can take steps to help our bodies and minds manage it. When you visit our tranquil earth-friendly San Diego spa locations — you can enjoy a variety of spa services that counteract the damaging impact of stress on your entire body health.
Here’s how spa services help your body fight off pain, stress, and depression:
- Massage – The comforting feeling of having your muscles massaged is as healing as it is relaxing. With one hour of massage, the body’s cortisol (the stress hormone) typically lowers more than 25%. Not only that, but the production of serotonin (the “feel-good” hormone) increases by nearly 30%!
- Meditation – Finding a safe place to relax and refresh is as nourishing to the spirit as organic facials are to the skin. Our San Diego spas offer guests an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate body and soul in a nurturing environment. According to Harvard Medical School researchers, regular meditation helps teach our brains how to manage things that make us anxious (which is essential because depression also increases the risk of heart disease and other ailments).
- Colon Hydrotherapy – Gently cleansing the bowels of waste buildup is a safe and natural way to purge the digestive system. Many people believe that regular colon hydrotherapy sessions help with bloating and weight loss and ridding the body of toxic plaque that contributes to other health issues, including skin problems, allergies, and depression.
- Infrared Sauna – Enjoying an infrared sauna session at our San Diego spas is an opportunity to relax, meditate, stretch, and do some restorative yoga poses. And while that’s healing for the spirit, the penetrating infrared heat itself is supremely beneficial for the body and mind. Researchers have found that when people with depression have an elevated body temperature (called hyperthermia) for a short period, they report feeling improved. (Imagine the anti-depressant effect of regular infrared sauna treatments!)
