What a Professional Facial Can Do For You

If you've looked longingly at the spas in your city and wondered what kind of excuse you could use for a day spent in total relaxation, it may be time to pamper yourself. Everyone needs some time away. And a day at one of these facilities isn't just about getting some time away from the kids and the stresses of work. Not only can a facial make you feel great, it can improve the overall quality of your skin and leave it looking radiant.

The Deep Cleansing Effect

You won't find too many people with nice looking skin who don't know the importance of washing their face each day. But sometimes, that isn't enough. When was the last time you went beyond the washrag and gave your face a deep cleansing? This is what spas can give you. With the facial, they go deeper than the surface, pulling out dirt that may be blocking your pores and creating blemishes. In addition to getting rid of all that oil and dirt, the facial can exfoliate, removing dead skin that has a tendency to get clogged up in the pores.

Professional Care

Think of your skin in the same way you think of your teeth. You brush and floss every day. Perhaps you eschew foods you know will lead to cavities or staining. But just because you do these things at home, you don't skip going to the dentist. This is because you know the dentist can do things in the office that you can't do at home. The same is true of your skin and professional facials. Found only in spas, these facials are performed by people who have been trained to know the right products and techniques for maximum results. Can you live without them? Of course, but you will never be able to achieve the same skin beauty alone.


Of course, as good as all of that is, spas really do provide the perfect way to relax. And is that such a bad thing? Some people look at such mini-getaways as a betrayal of their families, or as a weakness. It is nothing of the kind. Humans were not meant to be as constantly stressed and busy as we are in our modern age. Though much more physically active in our ancestry (and perhaps a bit more worried about being eaten by a lion), we had long periods of downtime in between the hunting and gathering. You need to make time for it today as well.

3 Facts About Deep Tissue Massage - Benefits Compared to Swedish Massage

If you have been seeking massage therapy for aches and pains, you may want to consider getting deep tissue massage. Though the Swedish-style massage can be great for minor aches and pain, and is also great for relaxation, there are times when it just isn't enough. Deep tissue massage is more about therapy and healing than relaxation, and there is a reason why it works better than the Swedish type. You should consider that the problems you are having in association with chronic pain need a more advanced approach.

You may not hear much about deep tissue massage, but it is something that is used quite often to help athletes and others who have very physical jobs. Most injuries are not just surface injuries, and it is important to get to the root of the problem for real relief. Athletes are not the only ones who can benefit however, as there are many injuries that go deeper than the surface. If you have an office job where you must sit in front of a computer all day, or if you do a lot of repetitive motions for any reason, you are also at risk for this type of problem.

3 Things You Need to Know

1. How it Works

Deep tissue massage reaches core muscles that are often not stimulated through surface massage. These muscles may be in a state of agitation. These core muscles are important for posture, and when they are not loose and working well, you are going to have all sorts of problems. If you have a backache that won't go away, and regular massage doesn't seem to do much to help you, it means that the core muscles are in need of manipulation, and that is where deep tissue massage can help. You may find relief for many types of chronic pain through this type of massage, and once you find you are feeling better, you may kick yourself for not having tried it sooner.

2. What Results Should You Expect?

A therapist using deep tissue massage will have to apply more pressure to reach the muscle well below the surface. This means there is going to be more pain when you have treatment. This pain is temporary, and is letting you know that the proper tissues are being targeted. When muscles are bunched, the act of kneading and manipulating them will hurt. This pain is temporary, and depending on the state of your health, you should see results rather quickly. It is important that you keep up with your treatment if you want to see total and complete results.

3. Where Can You Go?

You may have to look hard to find a good deep tissue massage therapist. You generally won't find someone like this in a spa that specializes in Swedish massage, but it is not unheard of either. If you can't seem to find anyone, talk to your medical doctor. They may know of somewhere you can go. Though some doctors are iffy on recommending alternative therapies, many of them respect what deep tissue massage can do for the health and well-being of their patients.

10 Health Problems Related to Uncontrolled Stress

As difficult as stress is to live with by itself, more and more medical research is pointing to many other health problems being related to, or caused in part by, stress. All by itself, stress apparently increases the risk of illnesses like heart disease, Alzheimer's, depression, asthma, obesity and others.

These findings make it even more important than ever to take steps to control stress and lower the risk of other diseases and conditions as well. The following are some of the most significant problems caused or worsened by stress:

  1. Heart Disease Although exactly why isn't clear research has shown that the aggressive, type A personalities experience a higher risk of hypertension and heart problems. What is known is that sudden emotional stress can trigger serious cardiac issues up to and including heart attacks. Anyone with chronic heart difficulties really needs stress relief as much as possible.

  2. Headaches Stress is a very common trigger for all types of headaches. Not simply tension headaches, but more serious migraine headaches as well

  3. Gastrointestinal problems Stress has never been shown to be a primary cause of ulcers but it can make existing ulcers worse. Unrelieved stress is a common cause of other GI tract problems such as chronic heartburn

  4. Obesity Too much belly fat appears to pose a greater risk to health than does fat accumulated on the legs or hips. And people with high stress levels secrete higher levels of a hormone called cortisol which seems to increase fat that is stored in the abdomen.

  5. Asthma There are many studies that have indicated that failure to control stress can worsen asthma and parents take note: If you are stressed yourself there is a much higher risk that your children will also develop asthma

  6. Diabetes There are two ways stress makes diabetes worse. First it appears to increase the levels of glucose in those who have type 2 diabetes. Next, being stressed can increase adverse behaviors like unhealthy eating and drinking too much

  7. Anxiety and Depression Unsurprisingly, stress is well known to be associated with higher than normal rates of both anxiety and depression. One recent survey discovered that those with job related stress had a much higher risk of becoming depressed within just a few years than did folks with lower stress rates

  8. Accelerated Aging Process One very telling study compared the DNA of mothers who cared for chronically ill children with those who did not found that a certain part of the chromosomes indicated certain signs of premature aging by as much as seventeen years

  9. Alzheimer's a research study done with animals indicated that stress may well worsen Alzheimer's by causing lesions in the brain to from much more rapidly

  10. Premature Death A study of elder caregivers who were stressed from attending their spouses needs discovered a more than 60% higher death rate than those their age who were not being caregivers

Although the amount of health problems affected by stress may be sobering there are reasons for optimism. Many studies indicate that simple stress management techniques will both make you feel better and improve your health.

Is it possible to find anyone who has not had to deal with anxiety, stress, depression, and/or insomnia? Especially since 2008, these emotions seem to be universal but there are ways all of them can be dealt with short of professional counseling and medications. When you can, take a look at Control Stress. The site has a lot of ideas about dealing with the complexities of day to day life.
