Home Is Where The Spa Is
Introduction

Indulging in a spa experience is no more the privilege of the elite, with the increasingly indulgent populace trying to squeeze in time form their busy schedules to become a regular spa-goer. Spending weekends at the spa has become a habit with stress burdened workaholics. And though this is a good way of getting rid of the stress at the hands of professional massage therapists, it sometimes burns a hole in your pocket. Add to it the trouble of dragging yourself outdoors.

Home spa

A spa experience at home is the answer to al your woes. Rid yourself of the stress within the confines of your home, without having to spend a fortune on professional spa treatments. Creating a spa experience at home is not all that difficult as you imagined. Here are a few tips.

Prepare

Make a proper plan first. Shop for the treatment products and ingredients well in time. Keep cool water handy, select music CDs, put on comfortable clothes. Keep a washcloth by the sink.

Enjoy the privacy

You need to be only with yourself to reap complete benefits of the spa treatment. Put other things on a hold without guilt, and bask in your own company. Jumping out of the tub every now and then to attend to chores will lead to more stress. So, relax and arrange for a quiet time away from the world.

Keep it a regular day

Maintain your regular routine on the spa day too. Perform light exercises to warm up the upper body in the morning. Have a fruit or fruit juice before heavy exercising. Eat a normal, low fat breakfast.

Invest in good products

A scented bubble bath, a good body scrub, and moisturizing oils are some of the essentials. The perfumed bath will create a sense of relaxation through aromatherapy, while the scrubs will gently exfoliate the skin. Moisturizing oils will nourish and make the skin supple.

Indulge your hearing senses

Imagine listening to your favorite music while soaking inside the tub. Relaxing music has a favorable effect on the nerves. It will also have a catalyzing effect on your mind, making it drift with the flow and forget about all worries.

Illumination

Aromatic candles serve the dual purpose of providing light as well as aroma to soothe and relax your senses. It lends a relaxed ambience to the atmosphere, lightning up your mood to a considerable extent.

Treat yourself to beauty care

Pampering the body gives you a high. So condition your hair and apply a face mask to rejuvenate the skin. Softly scrub your skin of dead cells. Rub your feet with pumice stone to make it soft. All these treatments will leave you feeling beautiful by the end of it.

After bath

Don't end the pampering once the bath is over. Nourish your body with moisturizing and conditioning cream, treat yourself to a pedicure, or paint your toe nails.

Give yourself a massage

Self massagers are available now-a-days to give you a massage. Alternatively, you can avail the services of a professional therapist to relax after treating yourself. So go ahead and enjoy the benefits of a massage, just like in a spa.

Fix up a routine

Making such sessions a habit will allow you to set aside time for yourself. This will immensely reduce your stress by creating a feeling of self importance within you. Repeat this at your own convenience or fix up a time each week or each month. Break boredom by varying the routine and see your stress vanishing.

Wrap up

Stress has inflicted adults and children alike, and has become common, though we do not realize this fact. Timely visits to professional spas to get treated from experts are a good option, but at the same time, pitching in with self therapies is not bad either. Enhance your spa experience by building home spa treatments as a conjunct to the professional services.
