Stay Young and Healthy by taking the time to care for your skin, nerves, and muscles with Spa Treatments.
We rely on Maui to help us escape the "Rat Race" and surround ourselves with nature, beauty, good weather, and friendly people. It's a great start that should be supported with good food nutrition and hydration, vigorous exercise, and plenty of rest. Sound good so far?
The "Frosting on the Cake" is to pamper your body, mind, and soul with Massage, Skin Care, and Meditation.
As an Esthetician for over 20 years, I am proof that these practices will keep you looking and feeling younger. There are many spas and treatments to choose from to enjoy a deep relaxation and release your true inner spirit from the burdens of your life. I advise all my clients to regularly treat themselves to deep tissue massages, organic skin treatments, and exercise routines that are low-impact on the body.
What to expect when going to a Spa
Visiting a private spa located in either a resort hotel, business complex, or a private residence is one of my favorite Maui experiences and I usually plan on 2-6 hours of relaxation time while there depending on amenities and treatment options. First prioritize which service your body needs to relax and rejuvenate, Follow that with researching spa services, locations, prices, therapists, etc, that will be able to provide the experience you are after and make an appointment.
Plan a day with little or no errands or obligations lined up after the treatments so you can carry the relaxed feeling all the way into the evening and bedtime. The day of shower and dress in loose comfortable clothing and notify your loved ones that you are turning off for the rest of the day. Show up a few minutes early to get situated, use the restroom, and sign any paperwork as needed.
As you are led into the treatment room, let your mind relax by turning off the inner chatter and release any feelings of concern so you can enjoy the most from your time there.
There are a variety of massage treatments available, find what is best suited for your body type and muscle needs. While I prefer deep tissue, which includes the therapist to provide acupressure to connective nerve tissues at the connecting point of your muscles and tendons which help to not only soften and release knots in your muscles, but to also help your posture and bone/joint alignment so you can stand taller and move more freely.
There are a variety of massage treatment styles to suit your desires and needs, such as: Swedish, Lomi Lomi, Hot Stones, Thai, Sport, Neuromuscular, etc. Read more about these different types of massages here to find the one best suited for you.
While I love the Spa experience, sometimes it is easier to have a therapist come to your home or condo for an "Outcall" treatment so you can be in your own space, and not have to get up and moving to quick for a deeper relaxation period.
Taking care of your skin is very important to keep a youthful appearance and you should establish a daily, weekly, and monthly routine using the best available organic products for this.
The term "Facial" actually applies to a variety of skin care treatments, often performed in stages to first cleanse the skin, clean up pores and skin damage, and finally hydrate and moisturize the skin leaving your skin healthier and glowing. The skin cells of your body naturally "slough-off" and replace themselves daily, but leaving the dead skin cells over the newly regenerated ones. Regular skin cleansing and hydrating is good, but I recommend monthly treatments from a professional Esthetician to look your best and to keep the wrinkles away!
Choose a Spa that uses natural and organic products in their treatments. The skin is an organ and is susceptible to poisoning and drying out when using chemical based products. Many Spas offer fresh ingredient facial masks, as well as equipment used for ex-foliation and muscle rejuvenation to tighten skin and to remove blemishes.
