A proper spa treatment will improve your overall wellbeing and your state of mind.
Book a spa treatment at the Karma Spa for the ultimate relaxation and unwinding of your muscles!
Why should you book a spa treatment? First and foremost, to disengage from your work, family, friends and any other distraction in life and focus only on the self. Your inner peace and balance are where your strength and happiness come from, so choose to relax and let your mind wander. During the treatment, you will slow down and rest, allowing your body the time to unwind and regenerate.
Spa massages increase the blood flow through the body sending more oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Your lymphatic system is stimulated by the gentle pressure on the muscles, making your body proactive in realising toxins. Hormones like serotonin and oxytocin are produced because of the safe and relaxed atmosphere, and any chronic pain is decreased. If you have constant problems with arthritis or spine issues that bother you, a day at the spa is warmly recommended.
If you opt for an exfoliating treatment, your skin will regain glow and softness. The granules used in most exfoliating scrubs kick start cells regeneration and polish the pores, leaving you with a feeling of smoothness. Water and heat treatments stimulate the body in different ways to promote blood circulation and decrease the blood pressure. Body wraps rich in natural vitamins and minerals heal and rejuvenate your skin.
