It is not surprising and definitely not a coincidence that the spa industry together with holistic medicine have undergone a massive boom in the last 20 years. The 21st century man and woman are deeply concerned about their well-being. The rapid development of psychology in recent years aspects has made us all realize that all areas of our lives are affected by how good we feel. If we are not well, if we are stressed or overworked, the body will react and this will backfire back into our everyday life.

The body is a complex and fragile system. Any problem in any part of it, even if that’s the skin, the back, the hair, may be an indication that we are pressured, stressed or unhappy. In fact recent psychological research emphasizes the importance of combining therapeutic treatments such as spa, massages and even hair and nail treatments with psychological therapies. Looking after your body boosts the morale and puts you in a better frame of mind. Imagine the difference between starting your day with a back-rub instead of rushing to the tube with a cup of take-away coffee. Imagine how much better it would make you feel to end your day with a facial aromatherapy massage instead of in front of the TV, thoughtlessly chewing a ready meal. In fact a simple massage has been shown to help regulate heart rate, blood pressure and hormonal release.
