Nothing seems to revitalize the mind, body, and soul like a trip to the spa. Here on St. Croix you can go to indulge in a relaxing massage or a specialty spa treatment right in the heart of Christiansted at Pampered VI. Pampered VI in Christiansted is a day spa tucked back in a beautiful, hidden courtyard and staffed with highly skilled therapists and estheticians. Their air-conditioned treatment rooms offer a respite from the heat, and an environment that encourages relaxation.
From softer skin to better health, the benefits of spending time at a spa are becoming better known. Visiting a spa is a pleasurable way to improve your health, and with a serene atmosphere and beautiful surroundings, spending an afternoon at a spa is certainly an enjoyable activity.
While some still view spending time at a spa as ‘pampering’, the types of services offered (especially massages) can provide you with a multitude of health and wellness benefits that including: deep relaxation, decreased anxiety and depression, better sleep, relief from muscle tension, healthier joints, and softer skin. So indulge, it will truly be good for your body, mind, and soul. Better yet, make a date of it by taking your partner and getting a couples massage!
How you choose to spend your ‘spa day’ is a very personal decision. Like many, my first choice is always a massage. I tend to go for deep massages that really work out the knots, as well as pedicures for my beach-weary feet, or facials that will detox my skin and leave it feeling clean and soft. You can always add aromatherapy or hot stones to a massage to really awaken your senses, and add to the depth of your relaxation. Looking for softer skin? Try a body scrub, wrap or polish.
Believe it or not, I know some people who do not like massages or full body treatments, in that case you can still indulge in a facial, manicure, pedicure, waxing, lash extensions or some time in the sauna. The possibilities are endless! You’re also likely to find a new product you’ll fall in love with, so be sure to stop by the retail shop on your way out and pick us something to continue to pamper yourself at home.
However you choose to spend your time at the spa, take advantage of that time to truly focus on yourself and your body’s needs. It is important for everyone to take care of themselves, which includes your body and soul. Relax, refresh, and leave feeling rejuvenated. You deserve it!– Jennie Ogden, Editor
