Are you feeling chronically stressed?
Do you feel constantly tired from taking care of your family, business, and other obligations?
Have you noticed that the busier you get, the more you neglect your self-care?
If you answered yes to any, or all, of these questions, you would benefit from a therapeutic massage. However, many of our guests have admitted that they feel like they “should” be doing something else instead of spa treatments or massages (like cleaning the house, doing something for the kids, or working on their business).
We like to offer a different perspective.
Self-care is caring for the ones you love.
Self-care helps you show up as the vision held of you by your creator.
Self-care is putting on your oxygen mask so you can be fully present with your children, love your spouse, and be fully expansive in business.
Self-care helps restore clarity in spiritual, religious, and mental matters.
That being said, the benefits of massages include pain relief, stress reduction, and better sleep. To enjoy enhanced benefits, you can elevate your massage with luxurious add-ons (that don’t break the bank).
One of the best things about massage therapy is it’s fully customizable. Your massage therapist wants to know exactly how you want to feel when you walk out of the spa so they can offer you services and add-ons to deliver your desired experience.
Every spa is different, but as an example, when you visit our spa for a massage near Montgomery, AL, our expert massage therapists ensure your entire experience, from check-in to leaving, is serene, supportive, and relaxing.
Additionally, knowing your options can help your massage therapist deliver the elevated experience you deserve, which is why we want to share our favorite add-ons for the best massage near Montgomery, AL.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a highly popular add-on option where your massage therapist places hot stones on your body. This could be on your back, stomach, arms, shoulders, neck, palms, or feet. Not only will the added pressure and weight increase your comfort during your massage, but you’ll also enjoy the following benefits:
- Enhanced muscle pain and tension relief
- Better sleep
- Boosted immunity
- Anxiety reduction
We’ve included reflexology as one of the top add-ons for your massage near Montgomery, AL, because many of our guests have the same response after receiving it. They almost always feel more vital and energetic afterward.
Reflexology applies pressure to specific spots on feet, hands, and ears so that the guest receives certain health benefits associated with those pressure points. The philosophy is rooted in Chinese medicine, which aims to increase a patient’s energy circulation. While studies rooted in traditional medicine yield vague findings about the benefits, Chinese practitioners have used this method for centuries to help patients increase their energetic circulation. The pressure points influence different areas of the body, and many people swear by reflexology as a complementary treatment for a variety of health issues, including the following:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Boosting your immune system
- Restoring hormonal imbalance
- Treating nerve issues
What sweeter way to elevate an already restorative self-care ritual than with a rejuvenating sugar scrub? They remove dead skin cells and give your skin a beautiful, healthy glow.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils to enhance a massage session (essential oils are potent oils derived from herbs and plants with various healing abilities). Aromatherapy works because what you smell is attached to your limbic system, which helps regulate emotions and influence hormonal activity.
Your massage therapist will select the appropriate essential oil based on your goals for massage therapy. For example, if you’ve booked your massage near Montgomery, AL, our massage therapists might use lavender or sandalwood essential oils for stress relief.
Other essential oils that might be used for aromatherapy during your massage appointment include:
- Clary sage
A seemingly simple touch, hot towels add instant relaxation during your massage near Montgomery. Your massage therapist might apply the towels to the legs, shoulders, face, or arms to help ease you into the beneficial effects that you came for in the first place.
Not only does it help you switch gears into massage mode, but it also opens your pores and increases circulation, increasing overall massage benefits.
