Have you ever thought about the potential health benefits of getting a massage or enjoying a few hours at Five Wellbeing spa? It turns out, regular spa sessions can be good for your heart. As February is Women’s Heart Health Awareness Month, we wanted to explore how taking care of yourself with a spa session can help your heart health.
Studies have suggested that massage therapy may help reduce blood pressure and improve circulation. Massage therapy is also known to lower levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress and can lead to an increase in blood pressure if left unchecked. By engaging in regular massage therapy sessions, you can reduce your stress levels and promote better cardiovascular health. In addition, massage therapy can also improve flexibility and range of motion in the muscles of the body, which helps to reduce strain on the heart.
At Five Wellbeing, relaxation techniques such as Tibetan signing bowls, Inhale salt therapy, and Exhale sound therapy are offered as part of our services. Research has shown that these activities may play an important role in improving heart health by decreasing inflammation, reducing blood pressure, and helping to lower stress levels. Relaxation techniques can also help to reduce anxiety and depression which are both linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
Essential oils have been used for centuries as part of holistic healing practices such as aromatherapy. Five Wellbeing uses Chinese elements in all of our offerings, activating essential oils of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal to deepen your relaxation experience. These natural oils have been found to have several beneficial properties including reducing inflammation, lowering stress levels, improving sleep quality, and more. The calming aroma of essential oils can help relax the mind while providing numerous physical benefits as well.
