Massages are truly healing and relaxing experiences that help your body and mind in different ways. People visit a spa for various reasons – reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, pamper themselves and promote overall beauty and wellness.
But things are different during the monsoon season. Nobody likes to step outside the house during monsoon unless it’s important. The climate in monsoon is usually humid, wet and sticky, and often leads to dry and sticky skin, and sweaty body as well. In fact, we are more prone to catching typical monsoon diseases as well.
In such a season, it is ideal that you spend your time at a spa and treat yourself with various therapies and rejuvenation techniques. Massage treatments are designed especially not only to nourish, balance, revitalize and boost the skin, but also to help you get rid of the tiredness, and gain back some of the essential elements required for your skin and body.
Different types of herbal oils depending upon the body constitution are used to help you stimulate and circulate blood, relax tense muscles, remove toxins from body and bring nutrition and moisture to the skin. Also since the atmosphere is cooler, massages can be a great experience as you may want to have some warmth around you as well.
Below mentioned is a list of some of the best options to try during monsoon:
