Natural Living Spa Winter Treatment

Have you felt blue and under the weather or stressed lately

Natural living spa has the right remedy for you to feel good again

Have you ever heard of the term winter blues? Well, this phenomenon is characterised by feeling glum, almost like a melancholy feeling.

Some people experience a sudden dip in their mood as winter progresses, a condition known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD). When this sets in, maybe it is time to restore your mental health with a relaxing spa treatment at Polokwane’s leading spa.


Make the best of winter


Why spa treatments help

Spa therapies promote a relaxing environment for the body and mind. Today many different spa treatments are available and offered, including water-based treatments. A variety of massage techniques are utilized including deep tissue and stone massages, scrubs, facials, body treatments, and a whole lot more.

Spa therapy promotes better blood circulation throughout the body, and this helps your body take in more oxygen and nutrients. As a result, it decreases inflammation in the body and enhances the body's autoimmune response. A day filled with relaxation has a positive impact on your mental health.

In addition to lowering the stress that is a part of your daily life, a spa day can help relieve anxiety, and depression and boosts your overall frame of mind.

12 Spa treatments to get you through winter


1. ESSEL Amazon Deep cleansing Facial (60 min)

This treatment cleans and smooths out your skin by removing dead skin cells and promoting the production of new skin cells. Additionally, it decongests pores, plumps up the skin, and lifts impurities. All of these are benefits of receiving this deep cleansing facial, leaving you with soft radiating skin.

This treatment benefits the winter blues because the cold weather can leave your skin feeling dry and irritated.

2. MESO Therapy Peel (60min)

Rather than invasive cosmetic procedures like needle-orientated treatments, mesotherapy is a non-surgical procedure aimed at reducing problem areas on the face and body.

3. MATSIMELA Aloe Facial (30 min)

Massage treatments:

As the chills of winter sets in, nothing soothes the soul better than a relaxing spa treatment. While spa treatments are beneficial at all times of the year, some specific benefits are gained from treatments in the winter. Your immune system is boosted by improved lymph flow, and your skin hydration will be enhanced.

Blood circulation is improved through treatments that increase body warmth; the cold weather can bring on many discomforts such as aches and pains, which are improved through massages. By receiving spa treatments, cortisol levels decrease, and oxytocin levels increase. Massages release serotonin and endorphins, relieving stress and leaving you feeling better.

Having a regular spa treatment will enhance the overall state of your well-being and booting those winter blues. Visit us at Polokwane’s leading day spa for a well-deserved spa day.

Your skin is left feeling drier and somewhat tighter as the temperature drops during winter. The harsh and cold winds remove the oils from your skin, making it more prone to irritation. Ideally, the solution to prevent and treat your dry, irritated skin is to book a spa day for yourself at Natural Living Spa.

Take a moment this winter to rejuvenate and relax. Natural Living Spa is Polokwane's most refined spa, where you can enjoy the fresh air whilst having a delightful cuisine and drink. The available treatments range in variety to cater to anyone needing a rejuvenating spa day and relaxation.

If you are experiencing the seasonal winter blues, it can be taken care of by boosting your mental health. Whilst receiving a spa treatment, you will be relaxed, reducing stress and anxiety, amongst many other benefits contributing to your mental health and clarity. Spa treatments will help boost your self-esteem and confidence, making you feel ready to take on the days with a rejuvenated and refreshed mind.
