Spa Therapy at Shadonai Beauty School
What is Spa Therapy?
Spa therapy can refer to a water treatment, as in a hot tub or spa. Or it can refer to any number of wellness treatments available at a spa. Massage therapy is one of those treatments. There are many types of massage therapy, but all involve rubbing and manipulating the muscles to reduce tension.
The purpose of a spa remains the same—to provide a space where you can go to relax your body and your mind. Spa therapy provides physical, mental, and spiritual healing crucial in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and promoting longevity.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does spa treatment include?
The most common spa treatments are massages, manicures/pedicures and facials. However, you might also see offered such treatments as a body scrub/exfoliation, a fingers or toes file & polish (like a mini manicure or pedicure) or a scalp massage.
What is difference between spa and massage?
whereas spa is concentrated on relaxation and luxury, massage is targeted at deriving health benefits. A spa treatment involves more than massages – body scrubs, water treatment, and alternative such treatments created to assist you to relax.
Is spa good for mental health?
Along with making you feel temporarily relaxed, studies show that the combination of the hot water, the massage of the jets, and the feeling of weightlessness can significantly reduce both mental and physical stress and decrease anxiety.
How is spa done?
Spa treatments often include a combination of deep cleansing, massages and moisturisation. Body treatments, facials and scrubs not only remove impurities, but they also help soften the skin.
Do spas help with anxiety?
Entering the warm water of a hot tub can instantly alleviate the physical symptoms of anxiety, especially muscle tension–a common symptom. Hot tub soaking improves circulation by dilating blood vessels. This can provide instant relief from muscle-related pain.
Does a spa day help depression?
Studies have shown that massage releases serotonin, a hormone in the brain that creates a fantastic ‘happy feeling’ and controls the mood balance of the mind. Getting a massage on your spa day is a perfect way to completely relax the body and unwind.
How massage can improve mental health?
Massage can stimulate the production of the body’s natural endorphins which are involved in mood regulation, stress reduction and relaxation. The increase in endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine enable the individual to experience a reduction in stress levels.

Massage helps to lower levels of anxiety and depressed mood, increase dopamine and serotonin levels, and decreased norepinephrine. In general, research supports massage therapy as effective part of treating anxiety and depression.
Why do I feel depressed after a massage?
As the body relaxes, it is normal for the body to also release the emotional baggage we are holding on to. While you might feel elated, refreshed or energised, there may be times when you feel a need to cry. This is okay, and it’s even normal.
How often should you get a massage?
If you’re working on a specific pain issue or injury, weekly massages can be a good starting place if it’s in your budget. For more of a general tuneup, or for stress-relief, every 4-6 weeks is the average time frame.
Does massage release trauma?
Deep tissue massage can often bring about major emotional releases of negative emotions that have been stored in the body for years. Craniosacral massage techniques are also helpful in getting negative emotions to release.
