It’s no secret visiting a spa is a relaxing experience. Yet there are several perks you may not be aware of.

There is more to a spa experience than what meets the eye, says aesthetician Krystyna Ejsmont, owner of Krystyna’s European Spa in Beverly Hills. When you combine aesthetic treatments with relaxation therapy, you can reap some healthy benefits. So, in case you need reason to book a spa day, these lesser known benefits may persuade you.
Apart from the obvious cosmetic benefits of spa treatments, they offer an opportunity for reflection and an escape from frenzied, day-to-day lives. “There is no separation of mind and body: what heals one restores the other,” Ejsmont says. By combining pure products with state-of-the-art treatment technology, you can experience physical and mental renewal.
2. Physical well-being
While massages are relaxing, they also have an array of associated benefits. Massages can help ease pain from arthritis or muscle tension, stimulate blood flow and boost circulation. Facial massages can even help with TMJ symptoms like jaw pain or sinus congestion.
3. Social life
Your spa day doesn’t need to be a solo trip. In fact, it creates a perfect opportunity to spend time with friends. With built-in activities, you can get to know new acquaintances or even reconnect with old friends. Very little planning is involved apart from booking your appointments for the day, making it the ultimate girls day, birthday celebration, Mother’s Day, etc. “It is a peaceful environment that allows you to connect in way you can’t anywhere else,” Ejsmont says. “Enjoy lunch in the lounge or maybe even end the day with a glass of wine with your loved ones.” She even offers 10 percent off services and products for newcomers and groups — score!
We all know how intense our Michigan winters can be, and unfortunately, it can do a number on our skin. Dryness is a significant factor in causing dullness and fine lines on our most delicate areas — like the face and neck. Ejsmont says a hydrating facial or recontouring facial treatment taps into nature’s anti-aging secrets to help recuperate from the winter. She adds that a spa can educate you on how you should be taking care of your skin, so your anti-aging efforts extend beyond a treatment session. A good aesthetician will offer recommendations and “take the spa experience home and integrate more care and luxury into your daily beauty routines,” Ejsmont says.
There is something about a fresh mani-pedi that makes you feel brand new. Looking good and feeling even better can only positively benefit your mood and therefore productivity levels. Those beautifully painted nails can jump-start a mindset that your life is put together. This may not be scientifically proven, but I’m personally willing to get more manicures and see how it affects my productivity — in the name of science, of course.
