Rain is falling, temperatures are dropping and perhaps so is your mood? Winter is renowned for making us feel a little glum. Going to work in the dark, leaving in the dark and spending no time in the sun. A common theory is that lack of natural sunlight inhibits the body’s production of melatonin, serotonin and messes with our internal body clock (making us feel gloomy).
Spa treatments on the other hand, make us feel radiant from the inside out. Here’s why…
Holistic therapies help reduce stress, relax the body and calm the mind. There are countless health benefits including pain relief, reducing anxiety, plus improving sleep quality, blood flow and skin cell regeneration. And, Spa treatments allow us to have a little self-indulgent me time.
The Spa at Wynyard Hall (a beautiful conversion of the old Victorian boathouse overlooking the lake) has lots of treatments to help lift your mood and energy levels as the dark, winter nights draw in.
For thirsty skin in need of a little hydration…
The Totally Quenched & Drenched
If your lips and face are getting a little chapped with the cold weather, this wonderfully rehydrating facial is a saviour for thirsty skin. It lasts for 75 minutes and is specially designed to leave the face looking radiant and fresh.
