As we enter our swinging sixties, looking after our health and well-being will often take priority in our day-to-day lives. Including a spa treatment within this can often be a great addition to your health plan. Massages and spa treatments can help to relieve aches and pains as well as replenish key vitamins and proteins in the skin barrier that help fight the signs of ageing. 

Why Spa Treatments Are Important?

Spa treatments can provide just as many benefits for over 60’s as they do for other generations. In fact, spa services are a great way for seniors to improve their health further and feel energised. The main benefits of spa treatments for those over 60’s include: 

  • Improved well-being
  • Improved sleep
  • Help with skincare
  • Easing common ailments
  • Improved mobility.

As we age, we can often suffer from a variety of conditions that can begin to affect our quality of life, such as rheumatoid arthritis, dry skin, trouble sleeping, and more. Luckily, there are many spa treatments available with us here at Lake Country House that can help to ease these conditions. 

There are specific spa treatments that can help to better mobility, like massages, as they help to eliminate any knots or tension in our bodies as well as it helping to improve blood circulation. 

Furthermore, there are many skin benefits when having a spa treatment, the main benefit being the increased level of collagen. As we get older, our skin begins to decrease in collagen production which causes the skin the appear aged. Collagen is an essential protein which helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin, so when this elasticity starts to wear away, this is when we start to see lines and wrinkles on our skin. Facials can help to improve our appearance as massaging our skin helps to stimulate the sebaceous glands which help to maintain our skin's hydration levels.

Menopause Relief Spa Treatment 

There are many benefits to massage treatment for women over 60, especially those suffering from menopause symptoms. 

When suffering from the unpleasant side effects of menopause, massage can help:

  • Alleviate pain,
  • Improve flexibility.
  • Boost your mood.
  • It works wonders as part of your self-care ritual. 

This is important because the decline in oestrogen during menopause influences the structure and strength of the tendons. Some women experiencing perimenopause or menopause are more likely to experience musculoskeletal ailments like Achilles Tendonitis and Plantar Fasciitis due to this.

Overstraining muscles and tendons are far more likely to result in injury when oestrogen levels are low. The good news is that soft tissue massage can help ease these issues and prevent them from developing into serious injuries later down the line.

The benefits of this treatment include: 

  • Rebalances the body and soul renewed/increased energy.
  • Relieves stress and improves mood.
  • Helps to improve the quality of sleep.
  • Comforts and hydrates the skin on the face and body.
  • Releases tension and achy joints
  • Reduces puffiness on the face.
  • Can help target hot flushes.

Skin Conditioning and Detoxifying Mud Wrap Spa Treatment

As we get older our skin becomes mature, which often results in the skin feeling dry and not as bright as it once was. Our skin’s natural oil production begins to slow down over time, so it’s common to experience dry skin as we get older, even if you had oily skin in your younger years. 

Mud masks can help dry and mature skin become more prepared for hydration from other moisturizing skin products, which results in more nourished and radiant-looking skin.

Using the finest blends of ingredients for detoxifying and purification of the body, this treatment starts with top-to-toe body brushing to encourage lymphatic flow.

Once cocooned in a cosy wrap the relaxation process is then taken to another level, with a glorious face massage.

Rehydrating Antioxidant Facial For Thirsty Skin 

An antioxidant is known as a substance that inhibits oxidation, and they are found in many products and foods. They are known to benefit the skin by preventing or slowing ageing and cell damage. By choosing a facial that uses products that include antioxidants you can reduce wrinkle and pigmentation appearance, stimulating collagen and assist in elastin’s production.
