This sort of stress also adversely affects the body, resulting in a whole new variety of aches and pains you may not have experienced before iso. And if you’ve been working from home of late, you can expect to feel some muscle strain. “You may have been less active over the past few months or so,” notes endota spa’s Remedial Massage program leader Tino D’Angelo. “Any lower back, neck or shoulder issues may be made worse by a poor ergonomic set up in the home office.”
Similarly, your skin has probably taken a hit thanks to a pesky flood of stress hormones, which can cause dryness, breakouts and overall dullness.
“When we are feeling stressed, our bodies release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol,” explains Helen Robb-Lacey, endota Wellness College CEO. “Both these hormones speed up the heart rate, elevate blood pressure, break down collagen and elastin and compromise the skin of water and nutrients.”
If you’ve decided things need a reset, the best thing to do is call in the experts. Luckily, endota spa has opened a number of salons for business again, and they’re offering a truly unique and relaxing double-treatment that will ease your body aches, relax your mind and soothe your skin.
“Your skin needs care and nourishment during times of high stress so it can be nurtured and utilise beneficial ingredients to improve its condition,” explains Robb-Lacey. “Spending time taking care of your skin can assist with lowering your stress levels, which is going to benefit your whole body and mind.”
Convinced? Then you definitely need to book in for endota spa’s Surrender treatment, which is described as “bringing balance to your body and mind” via a 75-minute nurturing, aromatic experience. It combines the endota spa Organic Infusion Facial and Organic Relax Massage for the ultimate self-care double treatment.
You’ll experience a total recharging of the mind and body as active botanicals and antioxidants are delivered to your skin, while warm jade stones are applied to the body, leaving you with a sense of healing. Finally, you’ll be treated to a scalp and foot massage to boot.
The results speak for themselves: based on endota spa’s in-study results, the Organic Relax massage is shown to decrease heart rate by up to 10.6%; reduce perceived stress levels, release muscle tension, induce relaxation and help women feel more balanced and connected with themselves. Interestingly, women who reported being the most stressed also appeared to benefit the most from the treatment, showing the greatest shift in emotional state and reduced heart rate.
An endota spa Surrender treatment is 75 minutes long and priced from AU $155.
