A Korean Day Spa is one of the greatest places to take the time to rejuvenate both your mind and body. With the change of seasons also comes a new added level of stress: shopping for a new fall wardrobe, partaking in numerous seasonal activities, and preparing for the up-and-coming gift-giving season. Add all of this to the already hectic schedule that most New Yorkers face each day, and you have a recipe for frazzled nerves and exhausting days.
Korean Day Spa: A Unique and Healthful Experience
To help destress yourself and give you the energy you need to thoroughly enjoy this beautiful time of year, consider indulging in one of the many services offered at a beautiful Korean Day Spa. The gentle and traditional healing arts practiced widely throughout Korea are well-known for their ability to rejuvenate and revive even the most exhausted of bodies and minds.
The most beneficial service of a Korean day spa is a full body massage. When we become stressed or overworked, the muscles in our body become tense. This tension causes various aches and pains throughout the body, and can even lead to debilitating headaches and fatigue. Not only can a massage release the tension throughout your body, it can also help the mind feel rejuvenated and promote deep relaxation. The gentle art of Korean massage used by skillfully trained professionals helps to boost the body’s energy flow along invisible energy meridians. Chinese healers have utilized this technique for centuries, and its benefits have been well documented.
Consider Your Own Relaxing Spa Treatment at Home
For those times that you need to relax and destress between visits to a Korean Day Spa, an at home body care treatment can provide you with a sense of calmness and relaxation as well. A wonderful way to treat yourself during the fall season is with a pumpkin body scrub that is easy to make and can be used anytime you need to pamper yourself.
To make your own scrub, you will need a handful of readily available ingredients:
1/2 cup of organic pumpkin, pureed to a pudding-like consistency
1/2 cup of organic brown sugar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or almond oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
All of these ingredients should be mixed together in a small bowl while you are running a warm bath. Soak in the bath for 10 to 15 minutes to soften your skin and open your pores, which will allow the healing properties of the oils and pumpkin to work more efficiently.
Drain the water from the tub and gently pat your skin dry. If you apply the scrub while you are actively soaking in the water, it will simply wash away and not do a proper job of exfoliating your skin. Place a towel in the bottom of your bathtub to prevent yourself from slipping, and sit down. Gently massage the scrub all over your body to remove dry skin. Once you have used all of the scrub, shake out the towel and place it to the side. Use a warm washcloth to remove any scrub from your skin, or rinse it off in the shower.
The Ultimate Relaxation Package
Although a home-based treatment will not provide you with the circulation-boosting and exfoliating effects of a full body scrub provided by the professionals at a Korean Day Spa, it will bring about a sense of relaxation and well-being.
