When people go through the spa menu to find something to help them relax and rejuvenate, it is seldom that they take a look at body treatments and their advantages. Body treatments not only refresh your skin, but can also make you feel relaxed like nothing else. Most women spend most of their money and time on their faces. However, while you are busy keeping the wrinkles away from your face, it is also important to put some attention on your body. Remember that skin is the largest organ in your body. That is why you should provide it with the attention that it deserves to keep it healthier and more youthful. There is a wide range of options for body treatments and each of them is unique.


One of the most widely used body treatments is aromatherapy. This is greatly beneficial not only for your physical health, but also for your emotional health. Using different types of essential oils can help in stimulating, calming, detoxifying, and rejuvenating your skin. These essential oils can be used in a steam bath, hot towels, or applied directly on the body.

Some of these essential oils can even take your body treatment to the next level. One of the most commonly used oils in this type of treatment is lavender. It can greatly help in reducing stress and anxiety. On the other hand, black pepper oil can help in relieving aching muscles and improving circulation. When used on the body, be sure to mix it with lotion or carrier oil. If you prefer something with a luxurious scent, then choose neroli oil. It is perfect for people with insomnia. Additionally, it can help you achieve total relaxation.


Body scrubs can exfoliate your skin, keeping it glowing and refreshing. It is a must to include exfoliation on all types of body treatments. There are different methods of skin scrubbing, such as salt scrub, sugar scrub, or with the help of a dry brush. Regardless of what method you choose, it can help in exfoliating your dry skin, renewing the cells, and improving its texture.

Additionally, it can also help in enhancing circulation while getting rid of clogged pores and alleviating lymphatic drainage. As a result, there is proper excretion of metabolic waste and absorption of nutrients. Dry brushing is a great way of stimulating nerve endings and rejuvenating the nervous system. Keep in mind that exfoliation goes beyond the depth of your skin.


One of the most amazing methods of detoxifying is through hydrotherapy tubs. It can help you prepare for your body treatment. Immersing yourself entirely in the water mixed with detoxifying muds, essential oils, or clays can help in opening up the pores of your skin so that these beneficial ingredients can be absorbed. Hydrotherapy can also help in reducing muscle tension and relieving pain. When you are underwater, you can feel the weightlessness of your body, relieving muscle pains and tension in the limbs. It can help you move easier. Additionally, hydrotherapy can encourage the release of endorphins, which act as a natural pain reliever. This can further reduce muscle pain.

Ultimately, cold water is best for invigorating and stimulating while improving the body’s internal activity. On the other hand, warm water is ideal for soothing and calming. Shifting between cold and hot water treatments can help in healing injuries, improving various bodily functions, and minimizing any inflammation. Once your body is immersed in hot or warm water, its temperature increases, as well as promote blood flow surrounding the circulatory system, thus relieving the pain. Improved circulation can help in healing injured tissues and rehabilitating damaged joints and muscles.

Additionally, it can help in boosting the immune system, increasing blood flow and circulation of white blood cells. It also allows lymph to spread throughout the body so unnecessary materials can be collected and eliminated. As a result, your immune system will be strengthened, and you can fight colds and other illnesses effectively. Furthermore, it offers detoxification since saunas and steam rooms encourage sweating. This is the best way of getting rid of toxins. Your toxins and impurities will be flushed out through your skin, thereby detoxifying your body.

Hydrotherapy treatment is perfect when you are on a holiday since it can relieve stress. It can also help in reducing blood pressure caused by stress. Aside from this, your body’s reaction to anxiety will be reduced and endorphins will be released. There are some hydrotherapy tubs that include jets specifically used to strike trigger points in the body while you are being massaged.

The Vichy Shower

The Vichy shower is also another type of body treatment. Generally, they include five to seven showerheads, also known as a “rain bar.” The water from the shower will cascade all over your body eliminating the product. The temperature of the water can also be advantageous to your skin. A warm Vichy shower can balance and bolster your immune system, making your body more relaxed. Alternating hot and cold therapy showers can detoxify, oxygenate, tone, and firm your skin.

Scottish Showers

Scottish Showers are pretty much the same as the Vichy shower. It is a form of hydrotherapy wherein high-pressure hoses are used by the therapist. Throughout the treatment, hot and cold water are being used to improve blood flow and the circulatory system. It can help in relieving depression, boosting the immune system, keeping your hair and skin healthy, as well as encourage an increase in white blood cell levels.


Originally taken from the Latin word balneum, Balneotherapy refers to a type of bath that uses mineral water and natural thermal in alleviating skin conditions. As a result, your general well-being will be improved. Generally, treatments will be done in pools, bathtubs, and other forms of natural water. Even during the early years, balneotherapy has been highly recognized due to its numerous benefits. The fact is, early Roman and Greek civilizations have been using mineral-rich hot springs for treating various types of illnesses. Nowadays, either hot or cold water can be used for balneotherapy. It also includes a wide variety of spa therapies.

The water used for this type of treatment is rich in nutrients and minerals. These minerals include iodine, bromine, potassium, lithium, manganese, calcium, magnesium, iron, selenium, sodium, silica, sodium, sulfur, and radium.


Microcurrent is not a new treatment. The fact is, it has been commonly used not only for the face, but also for the other parts of the body. This method uses a low level of electrical current that reflects your body’s natural current. One of the reasons why microcurrent is so popular is because it utilizes hydrolysis of triglycerides, also known as the compression of fat cells. This can greatly help in getting rid of cellulite. Some of the great benefits of microcurrent include the healing of wounds, macular degeneration, rehabilitation of muscles, lymphodema, etc. It can also help medical practitioners in obtaining excellent results.

Microcurrent also encourages muscle re-education, the method for shortening or lengthening muscles is greatly associated with facial toning. Microcurrent, which is also known as MENS (Microcurrent Electrical Nerve Stimulation), will try to re-program the muscle fiber so it can either be shortened or lengthened, depending on its application.

Its main objective is to help in fighting anti-aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, toning and re-programming body and facial muscles, enhancing the appearance and texture of the skin as well as minimizing any indication of aging. It is one of the most well-known non-invasive methods that can provide you the freedom to achieve your anti-aging goals without needing to undergo a surgical procedure.

Body Wraps

Body wraps are another popular form of treatment. There are various types of body wraps and each of them offers unique benefits. Seaweed is perfect for detoxification since it is rich in minerals. Clay or mud is ideal for detoxification as well as for reducing cellulite. Algae are mainly used for nourishing the skin and detoxifying. Combining wrap with shea butter or any other kind of rich cream can help in softening and hydrating your skin. In herbal wraps, elastic bandages, muslin, or cotton cloth is used. It will be soaked in an herb mixture then wrapped firmly around your body. You will be cocooned in plastic and blankets will be used for keeping you warm. This process is generally used for skin softening.

Parafango is just the same with paraffin wrap. Fango is the Italian word for mud. A warmed blend of paraffin wax and mud is used for this treatment. This can help in stimulating the skin and eliminating the toxins through your skin. Since this is a combination of paraffin and mud, then you can enjoy multiple benefits from this treatment. The mud can help in detoxifying your body while the paraffin can assist in achieving optimum results. While there are various products that can be utilized for body wraps, compression can assure you of instant loss of inches.
