So you’ve planned a wonderful ski trip to beautiful Breckenridge, and now you’re wondering what other fun things you can do while you’re here. After all, you can’t spend the entire trip out on the ski slopes.
If you really want to make your vacation in Breckenridge as relaxing and rewarding as possible, then a trip to the spa can be a fantastic way to make all your stress and worries disappear. Here’s a brief introduction to some of the most relaxing and therapeutic spa treatments you can find in Breckenridge.
One of the best ways to relax in Breckenridge is with a full-body massage. It’s very easy to book an appointment with a professional massage therapist, and you can schedule your appointment to fit with the rest of your vacation.
You should especially consider getting a massage after you’ve come in from a day of outdoor activities because there is strong evidence that a full-body massage can actually help your muscles heal after a heavy workout or other physical activity (such as skiing or hiking through Breckenridge’s mountain terrain). A massage greatly reduces the level of inflammation of your muscles after exercise. It also increases the levels of the proteins your body needs to stimulate muscle growth and regeneration.
When your muscles don’t feel as tired or as painful after a long day of activity, you’ll find yourself feeling incredibly relaxed and at ease.
There are plenty of other great reasons to get a massage while you’re visiting Breckenridge. Whether you choose a Swedish massage, a deep-tissue massage, or something else, you can expect to come away with:
- A stronger immune system
- Reduced pain from headaches
- Improved ability to sleep through the night
- Reduced anxiety, depression, and stress
- A reinforced posture, particularly if you spend a lot of time sitting
If you’re serious about improving your health while you’re enjoying your vacation in Colorado, a full-body massage should be one of the top items on your agenda.
One of the biggest consequences of being stressed out is that your body will have trouble ridding itself of toxins. There are some estimates that about 90% of doctor visits are related to stress. If you want to remain healthy, then you need to relax your body and rid it of toxins.
After you’ve had your massage, you may want to look into getting a detoxifying full-body wrap. This treatment will help pull the toxins from your bloodstream toward your skin, where they can be safely removed.
There is a very simple process involved in getting a body wrap.
- First, a body scrub is applied to your body. This is usually made from mud, clay, seaweed, or sea salt. The purpose of the scrub is to lightly scrape away dead skin cells in preparation for your wrap.
- Next is a quick shower to rinse off the scrub from your body.
- At this point, the wrap technician will apply your selected wrap product all over your body, one segment at a time.
- When your body has been fully wrapped, you’ll then be covered with an electric blanket. The heat from this blanket will stimulate your body’s sweat glands, and you’ll begin sweating the toxins from your body. The wrap products will aid in this by having an opposing electrical charge to the toxins, which will pull them away from your body.
- After about 30 minutes, the blanket gets removed. You’ll have a few minutes cool down on your own, surrounded by relaxing music, smells, and other environmental elements.
- Finally, you’ll apply a layer of lotion to your smooth and toxin-free skin.
At the end of this process, you are going to feel a level of relaxation and purity that will set the tone for the rest of your vacation, as well as the weeks and months that will follow.
