A massage can treat various aches

A massage at a good spa can reduce, or in some cases, entirely remove various aches and pains. Inform your masseuse of any pre-existing conditions and they’ll focus on treating the area. Of course, to properly treat body aches, a regular visit to the spa is needed to continue treatment.

Detox at the sauna

Sweating is one way of ridding your body of toxins, and there’s no better place than a sauna for that. A spa day is ideal after a night of overindulging and follow it up with a massage to get maximum benefits.

Bonding time

A day at the spa can be a great bonding experience if you go with friends or family. A lot of hotels like Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort, for example, may even offer couple packages at the spa. A Bali resort hotel may even have their own unique therapeutic oils for massages.

It directly affects your hormones

That’s right, getting a massage releases a hormone known as serotonin in your body. Serotonin helps to regulate your mood and appetite, which is why a day at the spa instantly makes you feel better.
