The Benefits of Spa Treatments in Windermere

A hectic stressful job, taking care of kids and family, bills to worry about and managing finances can lead to a mountain of stress.

Spa and beauty treatments in Windermere, the Lake District, offer you the chance to indulge and pamper yourself in a luxurious environment.

So don’t you also need some time off to de-stress. You certainly deserve it. This is where a day spa comes as a blessing where you can relax, recharge, reflect, detox and beautify. You might be thinking that going for a spa session is just an extravagance.

But you will be amazed when you get to know the real benefits it has to offer:

Time to De-stress: Immerse yourself in a hot tub, sauna or steam shower to soak away all your worries and come out as a relaxed soul. Book that therapeutic massage you have been promising yourself for months.

Slow down a bit: you look off colour today!! There is no need to rush, just slow down. Those dirty dishes can wait. A massage session will undoubtedly give you a break. Adopt a healthy lifestyle by consulting the therapist about relaxing your muscles, eating nutritious food and other feel-good tips.

Relax yourself mentally: A trip to a spa will relieve all your tensions and give you mental comfort. If you really want to increase your confidence and self-esteem, pamper yourself. Enjoy the psychological benefits that therapeutic massages, manicures and pedicures have to offer.

Detoxify your spirit: Whether we like it or not, we are normally exposed to chemicals, tissue acid wastes and stress. You really need that “ME” time to purify your body and to get rid of toxins.

Feel and look young: We feel more confident when someone compliments our glowing skin. Facial and other therapeutic massages can help deter aging. So indulge in taking good care of your body and mind.

Improve blood circulation: Massage can be a powerful way to improve blood circulation and regulate blood pressure. Treat yourself to some deserved rest and obtain this medically proven benefit.

Shred those extra pounds: We all yearn to have that washboard tummy. Enrolling in suitable weight loss programs or health spas will help you to achieve that aim.

Breathe in Breathe out: A massage therapy does not only improve breathing but also posture. Many spas offer yoga which strengthens your respiratory system and improves flexibility.

Sleep like a baby: If you are suffering from any sleep disorder, a good spa treatment can soothe all your pains and stress leading to a sound sleep pattern.

Mitigate the body aches and pains: There are plenty of massage therapies which help lessen pain and reduce all those body aches you have been suffering from. Address arthritis and nerve disorders like Fibromyalgia with the numerous medical spas available.

Feel good factor: Myriads of studies have proved that a massage releases Serotonin hormone which intensifies the “feel good” factor of your body. A visit to spa will replenish all your energies and make you feel relaxed in and out.

A must for professional athletes: A famous athlete said “A massage is important when you want to perform at your best” while enumerating the benefits of a massage. A massage provides relief to the fitness freaks and professional athletes from easing muscle tensions and cramps.

A would be mum’s blessings: It has been scientifically proved that massage therapy reduces anxiety, relieves muscle pains, improves labour outcomes and overall health of women during pregnancy.

Consult the expert: Many spas have experts who provide nutritional advice and other tips to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

The Top 10 Health Benefits of Spa Treatments

If you are looking for some serious pampering, you can enjoy a wealth of revitalising spa treatments that will make you look and feel amazing.

The top 10 health benefits of spa treatments include:

1.Health and fitness

After only one trip to the spa, you will feel refreshed and relaxed. Professional staff can advise you about the best treatments for your body and give you suggestions about improving your daily routine, and subsequently improving your general well-being.

2.Reduce stress and manage pain

Most of us lead busy lives and by making the most of spa treatments and therapies, you can relieve stress and relax in beautiful surroundings. Take advantage of the jacuzzi, the sauna or the steam room, and let your worries melt away. Spa treatments are also great for general aches and pains, which can be bought on by over-exerting yourself.

3.Mind benefits

Spa treatments can be beneficial for your mind, as well as your body. Physically and mentally you will feel cleansed and relaxed after a visit or two to the spa, which often results in higher self-esteem and confidence. Massage also provides emotional and psychological benefits, which we often need in order to feel good about ourselves.

4.Improved circulation

Many spa treatments and massages help to improve blood circulation, and reduce high blood pressure. Better general circulation of blood reduces the risk of blood clots and sprains, and eases stress. Improved circulation will not only improve your general health, but it will also increase your desire to be more active and exercise.

5.Healthier skin

If our skin looks good, we look good, and regular spa visits will make your skin glow. Facials and body treatments specifically target skin problems, and will leave you feeling fresh and relaxed, reducing wrinkles and putting a spring in your step.

6.Detox treatments

Spa treatments can promote and aid detoxification, by eliminating toxins and excess fluids from your body. This, in turn will result in increased levels of energy, and a reduction in bloating or water retention, which can leave you feeling uncomfortable.

7.Weight loss

Through yoga and healthy eating, you can lose weight and keep it off, which will not only result in a healthier lifestyle, but will also benefit your all-round physique.

8.Improving sleep patterns

Regular visits to the spa will help you to maintain a better sleeping pattern, and eliminate sleeping disorders and insomnia. If you sleep well, you are much more likely to lead a healthy and stress-free life.


If you are looking for the motivation to start exercising, lose weight, or simply change your ´couch potato´ lifestyle, then a trip to the spa should provide all the encouragement you need to start improving your health.

10.Improved breathing and flexibility

Spa services and beauty treatments can help strengthen your respiratory system, and massage, heat therapy and hydrotherapy will not only improve your joints and flexibility, but it will also improve your general sense of well-being.
