The Health Benefits of Salon & Spa Treatments

Is the salon or spa part of your wellness routine?

Beauty treatments are often overlooked when it comes to healthcare, but salon and spa visits can contribute significantly to our overall wellbeing. These benefits are both physical and mental, and some treatments complement other parts of our wellness routine too such as aiding recovery after a strenuous workout. Explore the health benefits of these salon and spa treatments and discover which experiences would be most nourishing for your mind, body, and soul. 


Massage involves the physical manipulation of the skin and soft tissues of the body. This is typically performed using the limbs, primarily the hands, although sometimes equipment is used as well. Massage therapy helps to relax tired and tight muscles to reduce your feeling of physical tension.

There are several knock-on health benefits of a massage. In addition to relaxing your muscles, massage therapy increases blood circulation and can improve the movement of lymph fluid around the body. It also promotes the production of endorphins which give you a mental boost, too. 

Light Therapy

One of the biggest beauty trends of the last decade is the introduction of LED light therapy. Exposing the skin to an array of red and blue LED lights can help to regenerate cells, reduce acne, and lessen inflammation, all contributing to a smooth, glowing visage that radiates health.

You can also take advantage of sunlight simulators which were designed to combat Seasonal Affected Disorder. Sitting in a simulated sunlight room is highly energizing and boosts vitamin D production. Most useful in winter, these are also an excellent way to get the benefits of sunlight without risking skin damage.

Many people feel healthier and more confident with a slight tan, but again it is important to avoid too much direct exposure to sunlight. Consider getting a fake tan at a salon instead but be sure to use tan accelerators and other hydrating products to provide skin protection during the process.

Detoxifying Treatments

Detoxifying treatments are an enduringly popular choice for salon and spa goers. These treatments work to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin and draw out toxins from within skin cells.

Common detoxifying treatments include exfoliating scrubs, either all over the body or as a facial. Mud and clay are often incorporated as well to help draw out impurities from the skin. These treatments can be followed by a hot sauna and a steam experience to open and cleanse the pores.

Whether you want to treat a skin condition, soothe sore muscles, or give your brain a boost, try adding some salon and spa treatments into your healthcare plan. You might be surprised by the results – for your mind and body.
