Your first time at a spa can be overwhelming and exciting all at once, can’t it? With so many treatment options available, where do you start? What do you need to do in order to make the most out of your session? Look no further than the steam room, the sauna and the Jacuzzi. We reveal why it is so important to make use of heat amenities before you have your massage treatment.
Whether you are treating an injury or simply loosening tight muscles, it is very important that you warm up before you have your massage treatment. Luckily, this doesn’t mean you need to do lots of moving! Just by spending 10-15 minutes relaxing in the steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi, the heat amenities will do all of the warming up for you so that you and your muscles will be more comfortable on the treatment table.
Steaming and using the sauna and Jacuzzi before your spa day in Huddersfield at VJW, will not only warm up your body, but it will also ensure that your muscles are softened and more pliable, ready for a treatment with longer-lasting effects. This is key because the muscles will be more responsive to an intense or deeper treatment and will be less likely to spasm in a particularly painful area.
By hopping into the sauna, you give the body a head start in releasing toxins before your treatment commences. Your body will naturally sweat out any toxins while the heat of the sauna reduces blood pressure and improves your circulation. When it comes to relaxing and rejuvenating on the massage table you will have made it easier for your therapist to work on any tight and painful areas, which gives you a comfortable and re-energising experience with effects that will last much longer.
By encouraging blood and oxygen flow, using heat amenities before your massage treatment also brings pain relief to inflamed joints or sore areas of the body. Take advantage of the jets and hot water of the Jacuzzi to loosen any tension. You will also be able to begin the process of breaking down the build-up of harmful lactic acid in muscles and connective tissue. This way, you will have kick-started what will be an ultimately soothing and effective massage treatment.
Use the steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi prior to your massage treatment to promote a quicker recovery from intensive massages, such as a Deep Tissue Massage. The process of kneading painful areas is made much more comfortable by using heat amenities first. It will also benefit you to make sure that you drink plenty of water between the uses of each facility. Your body should be well hydrated when engaging in massage therapy in order for the benefits of using heat facilities to work most effectively.
