One of the most popular ways to unwind and pamper oneself is by indulging in a spa facial. Not only does it leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, but it can also help improve your skin’s health and appearance. While a typical facial is undoubtedly relaxing, investing in a luxury spa facial is a whole different kind of experience. This is because it offers more than just skincare benefits. In this blog post, we’ll explore why investing in a luxury spa facial is different from a typical facial and what makes it worth the splurge.

Better Products

The products used in our Five Wellbeing luxury spa facials are often of higher quality and more potent than those used in a typical facial. For example, we often use Eminence Organics, an organic skincare line that only uses natural medicinal herbs and is free of any harsh cosmetic chemicals. Many of these products contain advanced ingredients that can penetrate the skin more deeply, providing more effective results. The higher quality of the products also means that they are often more expensive, which is one reason why luxury spa facials can cost a bit more. Ah, but it so worth it!  The use of better products is essential to obtain better results, which is why investing in a luxury spa facial type is a brilliant decision.

Energy Clearing with Sound Bowls

Another aspect of Five Wellbeing luxury spa facials that sets them apart from typical facials is the inclusion of sound therapy. Sound therapy is a technique that uses sound bowls to help relax muscles and calm the mind. This technique is known to release natural endorphins—which are hormones responsible for inducing feelings of relaxation and happiness. When coupled with other spa treatments, like a facial or a massage, sound therapy can help improve the overall spa experience.

Aromatherapy, the use of essential oils, is another technique commonly used in luxury spa facials. At Five Wellbeing, it is all in our name. We use the 5 Elements of Chinese medicine to inspire our aromatherapy approach. The foundation for Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, qigong and feng shui is a system of identifying and balancing the Five Elements found in all people, places, and things. As such, each oil we use in our treatments contains unique properties to soothe and relax the body and mind, improving the overall spa experience. During aromatherapy experiences built into our facial sessions, clients can inhale the scents of essential oils and have them incorporated into products used during their facial. Essential oils are known to be helpful in managing anxiety, depression, and stress.

Opportunities to Relax

Luxury spa facials also provide opportunities for clients to relax and unwind. In addition to the facial treatment, Five Wellbeing spa may offer additional treatments, such as a foot massage, salt room therapies, energy clearings, vichy showers, and so much more. Clients can also relax in comfortable surroundings and enjoy the ambiance created by music, subtle lighting, and vibrational chairs and tables. A luxury spa facial provides an opportunity to forget everyday life stress and enjoy a self-care experience.

Indulging in a Five Wellbeing luxury spa facial can be a bit more of an investment, but it’s often worth the splurge. The better quality of products, incorporation of sound therapy and aromatherapy, and the opportunity to relax set luxury spa facials apart from typical facials. Investing in a luxury spa facial is a commitment to self-care, taking time to pamper yourself after a long week or day. Consider this option the next time you schedule your Five Wellbeing appointment—adding a luxury spa facial experience will be worth it.
