Stress Awareness: How a Spa can Help to Reduce Stress

Friday, 5th November 2021

We understand life can be stressful at times. From juggling work and childcare to maintaining social lives and keeping on top of chores – we all have a lot on our plates.

Busy lifestyles often leave us feeling stressed or burnt out, which can have a negative impact on our mental health. However, there are things we can do to ease stress. Taking time to focus on self-care is vital when it comes to looking after our well-being and not letting life get on top of us.

Spa therapies have long been used as a way to unwind, as it helps your body to relax and release built-up stress and tension. Here are our top 5 reasons why a day at the spa can help you feel better:


A little break from everyday life is needed from time to time. It gives us the chance to breathe and reset. Spending time in a spa, such as our Spa Wellness Experience, is a great way to spend this time. From saunas and steam rooms to foot spas and pools, the serene environment has a truly calming and relaxing effect.

Treat Yourself

Spa therapies are a great way to treat yourself – and there are plenty to choose from. Beauty treatments such as new gel nails or lash extensions are a perfect pick-me-up if you’re looking to feel pampered (they’re a great confidence booster). Treatments such as massages and facials are perfect for releasing tension and giving your skin some TLC.

Sleep Well

If you struggle with sleep a trip to the spa could be just the tonic you need. Saunas, steam rooms and the pool’s warm water are there to help you relax and release some of that muscle tension. But did you know that it also reduces your blood pressure and maintain a healthy heart rate, all of which contribute towards a good night’s sleep.

Relieve Aches and Pains

Aches and pains are a common problem for many of us, but a spa visit can help to relieve these issues, leaving your body feeling more relaxed and less tense. Massages can target problem areas, such as the back, neck and shoulders, releasing knots and relaxing the muscle tissue. There are lots of massage options to choose from, such as aroma therapy and hot stones.

Revitalise Skin

When we’re feeling burnt out or run down it can show in our skin! From breakouts to dull and tired looking skin, stress can show itself in many ways. A facial can really help to give your skin a boost by cleansing and hydrating. It will leave your skin glowing and feeling revitalised and refreshed – perfect for feeling good and looking good too!

As you can tell, the benefits of a spa or treatments extends way beyond the massage table. So, if you’re looking for ways to unwind and feel good, why not book a Spa Wellness Experience at Inside Spa or one of our treatments – we’ve got lots to choose from.
