HOW SPA TREATMENTS CAN SUPPORT YOUR LIFE GOALS


For a long time I have been confused as to why men in particular hold the view the a spa day or spa treatment is an indulgence and doesn't really fit with their life goals.

Personally I have never understood why men turn up their noses at the idea of having a spa treatment or hitting the relaxation room. It always struck me that odd that people couldn’t see the value in spending time supporting their health in this way.

Every sportsman I ever played with would rather dive head long into their own vomit before they gave up the treatment spot with the physio or sports masseuse so desperate where they to benefit from the healing benefits of a good massage. So why should a spa treatment be any different?

On a resent visit to @ajmenspa where may of their massage therapists are infact physios it was clear this may be a route to overcoming male resistance to a spa treatment.

If we spa and gyms can work together to draw the clear link between massage treatments and how it can support the goals of the individual spending their their time getting fit and healthy in the gym then we can shift the whole perspective of spa treatments.

Imagine for instance talking to your personal trainer in the gym about training focus on an up coming marathon. You have been working together to reduce the tightness in you legs after long training session to allow you to reduce your recovery time. Imagine if he then pointed out that the spa had a massage that would be tailored specifically to helping support this goal using bespoke Physio derived techniques which would not only help improve your flexibility, speed up your recovery but had all the other added benefits of massage like clearing the mind, helping your relax and giving you time to gain clarity and perspective to make you stronger both mentally and physically.

It seems like a no brainer to me and if the range of treatments could also be tailored to support people across a wide range of issues they encounter when trying to perform across all areas of life: family, work, sport etc. Combining time for yourself to destress while receiving a treatment that is actively enhancing your ability to perform seems like a super efficient use of time to me!

If you want my advice I would look past the fluffy robes and herbal tea to the origins of the spa which some believe comes from a small Belgian village called Spa, where hot mineral springs were used by Roman soldiers to treat aching muscles and wounds from a battle to get them ready to fight agin the next day!
