A Trip to Tranquility can Help Support your Mental Health

Given the world we live in today, it has been predicted that, in a decade or so, feelings among the population of anxiety/depression will be among the foremost issues in the United States. While certain conditions will of course require treatment by medical and mental health professionals, it is widely accepted that spa treatments can help alleviate feelings of depression, anxiety and overall stress. A visit to Tranquility – no matter which treatment you choose — can help make you feel better.

The benefits of Swedish massage are well known, but there may be an additional, lesser-known benefit. It is thought that such massage can lower the level in the body of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, and that lowering cortisol levels can increase white blood cell count. Adding the placement of hot stones to one’s back during the treatment can make this type of massage even more therapeutic by helping to alleviate chronic pain.

Also associated with stress relief is Aromatherapy, where the massage therapist uses warm oils as part of the treatment. Certain scents and essential oils – such as lavender, rose, chamomile, etc. – are used to target anxiety and are widely believed to alleviate symptoms. Aromatherapy is not only a soothing, sensual experience – it smells SO good!

Even people who do not consider themselves suffering from anxiety, depression or stress report that such treatments make them feel more balanced and grounded, and better able to deal with the world’s challenges. Regularly-scheduled massage treatments, over time, can make a significant difference not only in your day, but in your life!
