As the weather draws in, and the pre-Christmas rush begins, it may be the time to consider some self-care. It might sound counterproductive to spend time relaxing before the Christmas rush, but making sure you are ready for the busy festive season ahead will give you the best chance of glowing at those winter gatherings.
Visiting a Lake District spa will give you more than just a weekend break in beautiful scenery. You will be able to choose from a range of treatments that will have you relaxed, rejuvenated, and all set for any event that is coming your way. But what treatments should you consider?
Combining Quality Products With Expert Knowledge
When choosing a spa in the Lake District, it is wise to do your research. The best spas will employ therapists that know their craft well, and will use the types of products that are synonymous with high quality treatment. Brands such as Elemis, who craft a huge range of beauty products known the world over for their quality and Ishga, which harnesses the power of seaweed to leave skin feeling amazing are just two options.
Treatments To Consider On A Winter Spa Break
There are lots of treatments you might benefit from, and what you choose will depend on your preference. However, some popular winter treatments to consider include the following.
- Rasul Treatments
Based on an ancient Arabian cleansing ritual, Rasul is a natural treatment based on mud, steam, and heat. Its aim is to remove impurities and get rid of any toxin build up in the body. Usually booked as a group treatment, this is a perfect choice for 2 or more people that are new to spa treatments.
- A Massage To Soothe The Soul
There are a variety of massage techniques to choose from, including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone massages. A massage can help to soothe tired muscles, improve circulation, and can even be tailored specifically to those with underlying muscle problems.
- Aromatherapy Options
For an extra layer of relaxation within your spa break, consider indulging in an aromatherapy massage. This treatment combines the benefits of a classic massage with the power of essential plant oils. Aromatherapy massages can help to soothe the muscles while providing a sense of well-being – the ultimate treat.
- Hydrating Facials
Winter weather can be harsh to the skin. If you feel like your skin is dry and dehydrated, a hydrating facial could be an ideal choice. These facials are customised to your skin’s needs, delivering great hydration. You can also choose anti-aging facials, and even tech it up with a biotech facial which targets problem areas.
Treats For Those With Specific Needs
If you have been through cancer treatment this year, or are in mid-chemotherapy treatment, you might be wary of visiting a spa. However, there are treatments that could benefit you. Isha touch therapies can allow those going through or post-treatment, to benefit from a program of facials and massages that are designed with them in mind.
If you are looking for treatments that are safe for pregnancy, there are also plenty of facials and full body treatments to help you feel at your best.
If you have any underlying health issues, your spa should be able to talk you through the treatments that will be most beneficial for you, as well as those that you should avoid.
Whatever you are looking for in a winter spa break, combining the beauty of the Lake District with refreshing, relaxing, and reviving spa treatments is sure to set you on the path for your best winter yet.
