5 Spa Treatments That Help You Focus
By NewBeauty Editors |
The ability to focus seems like an afterthought, until you are struggling to achieve It every day. The spa isn’t just a place to relax; the right treatments can help you regain focus.
“You can address mental clarity with stimulating, invigorating treatments, like a body scrub or Thai massage, and by including aromatherapy using essential oils that are proven to stimulate the mind while relieving stress,” says Hope Gillerman, founder of H. Gillerman Organics.
“I highly recommend Reiki to regain focus. It replenishes your energy supply, while removing blockages to the energy flow. During it, the body moves into a deep state of relaxation, softening and relaxing every muscle, connective tissue, and organ,” says Myrna Beardshear, director of spa and wellness at Red Mountain Resort in Ivins, UT.
Shirodhara + Abhyanga
Maha Lakshmanan, Pavitra Leader at St. Lucia’s The BodyHoliday wellness center, recommends the Ayurvedic duo of Shirodhara (head massage coupled with the steady flow of warm medicated herbal oil over the forehead) and Abhyanga (four-handed massage) to help regain focus. “These two treatments balance all the channels and chakras.”
Energy-based treatments, crystal therapies, guided meditations, a healthy dose of Native American-inspired rituals and the breathtaking backdrop of Boynton Canyon are enough to make Mii amo an ideal place for letting your mind and body rest. But the destination spa also has specific focus-geared treatments when something more targeted is needed. Try the ever-effective Ayurvedic offering of Simply Shirodhara to help calm the mind or sign up for the spa’s famous Journey Spa Treatment, a two-hour consultation that includes everything from bodywork to spiritual guidance.
Relying on the science behind biofeedback and how it can be used to improve the body both physically and psychologically, Quantum Biofeedback at Arizona Biltmore helps to bring focus and improve well-being through a range of energy-balancing sessions. Unblocking Potential, Mood Boost, Immune Support, Pain Management and Brain Boosts are targeted treatments among the Quantum Biofeedback options. But if you’re in need of something more specific, try either a 50- or 80-minute customized session to address your individual needs and restore your sense of well-being.
