On UpYourVlog, Ana’s talking about why we all need a spa day once in a while!

The pressure to succeed in everything you do and the struggle of balancing your work and personal life can be overwhelming. Staying on schedule, tackling problems, keeping up with that to-do list and achieving your goals is basically what life’s made of, but sometimes all of this can leave you feeling drained and burned out. Truth is, life is stressful and knowing when to stop and take a break is very important for your wellness. There’s a variety of activities you can do to relax and take your mind off things, and taking a little trip to your nearest spa resort might be the best one.

A day at the spa isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. Taking a day off just for yourself can make a huge difference, and getting all the great benefits from spa services will make you feel refreshed and energized. Check out some of the most important health and beauty benefits of visiting a spa more often.

Health benefits

Having a spa day can improve both your mental and physical health in many ways. Massage therapies can treat anxiety and sleep disorders, help boost your immune system, relieve headaches and muscle tension, help heal digestive disorders and improve blood circulation. Spa baths can improve your cardiovascular health, help lower blood pressure and reduce stress. Saunas and steam rooms are a great way of improving your health through sweating. A sweat session can help you get rid of toxins, promote weight loss, help sinus relief and boost your immune system. Whatever service you choose, it will help you maintain your good health and state of mind.


Beauty benefits

Spa centers at WaySpa offer so many beauty treatments – these places are all about feeling good and looking good. You can get a facial treatment that will rejuvenate, cleanse and refine your skin, a body wrap that will remove all dead skin cells and provide you a smoother complexion, a waxing service that will remove all hairs and make your skin soft and silky…The list goes on and on! 

Taking care of your skin is essential, but while you’re at the spa, you might want to get your nails done and have a manicure and pedicure treatment to revitalize your hands and feet. Some spas offer hair and makeup services, so you can nourish your hair, change your hairstyle or get that makeup look you’ve always wanted. Spa centers provide plenty of beauty treatments so you can either choose one or go for the full experience and enhance your beauty head to toe.


Treating conditions

Considering the health benefits mentioned above, a spa day will not only help you maintain your health – it could also help you heal your body and mind.

Massage therapy can provide faster recovery from sports injuries such as soft tissue strains, muscle spasms or broken bones and burns, by increasing the blood circulation and improving joint movement and flexibility. They can also relieve back pain, heal sore muscles, treat mental conditions such as anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia, relieve headaches and lower blood pressure.

Saunas and steam rooms can ease joint pain, improve blood circulation and boost the immune system. They’re also great for fighting cold and flu and can improve asthma symptoms and sinus conditions.

Getting a regular facial treatment can help heal your skin and treat skin conditions such as acne scarring, redness, pimples, sunspots and sun damage, blackheads, whiteheads, and rosacea.

Detox your body and mind

A sweating session at the sauna will help you get rid of toxins and clean your skin from bacteria and dirt buildup. The calming atmosphere of the spa and services like massages and spa baths will help you unwind, relax and detox your mind. 


A day at the spa is the perfect opportunity for spending quality time with your loved ones. Get together with your friend or relative for a pampering pedicure treatment, a sauna session or a hot tub spa bath treatment.

A couples massage is a great way to spice things up in your relationship and enjoy each other’s company. Sharing this relaxing experience with your partner will help you reconnect, bond and strengthen your relationship.

Taking a break

Lastly, a spa day is all about taking a break from reality and all responsibilities. After all the hard work and stress buildup, you do deserve some time to focus on yourself. A day off from your daily routine will help you recharge, recover and instantly feel better. Pampering yourself in a relaxing atmosphere will definitely boost your mood, energy, and productivity!
