Check Out These Five Stress-Relief Tips to Help Get You Through Spring!
- Don’t Stretch Alone
Warm weather season means people are lacing up their running shoes and getting outside for their fitness routine. But if you’ve been in hibernation all winter, it’s extremely important to stretch before exerting yourself to prevent injury. If you want to dive deeper than simply touching your toes and get the real benefits of stretching, try the Streto Method with a massage therapist. Therapists take you through a 30 to 60-minute guided stretch so you can hit the ground running this season…literally!
- Revamp Your Skin Care Routine for the Changing Temperatures
The switch from dry, cold air to warm, humid temps can give your skin the change of season blues. To ease your complexion’s transition, it’s important to incorporate facials into your skin care routine. Your skin cells turnover every 30 days so, try to book a facial at the end of each life cycle for maximum results.
- Treat Your Muscles
Think massages are just for relaxation and pampering? Think again! Getting your muscles worked on through massage is just as important to your wellness routine as fitness and nutrition. It helps keep your body working at peak efficiency. Plus, it’s way more enjoyable way than kale or a treadmill.
- Address Your Stress
Between holiday spending, family reunions and keeping up with New Year’s resolutions, winter can be stressful. It’s important to start the new season in a healthier state of mind. One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
- Give Your Skin a Makeover for The Season
Did you know that your skin care products perform even better after a Chemical Peel? Try an advanced skin treatment like a PCA Chemical Peel this season to allow your skin care products to work at the foundation of the problem. The ultra-exfoliation will remove dead cells and speed up the penetration and effectiveness of your product regimens.
