When you think of weight loss, you generally think gym. You do not think of spas or salons. Funny, though, because there are some weight loss services and benefits attached to seeking out help from spas and salons. The following four services can really help boost your weight loss efforts and make you feel really good in the process.
Detoxifying Sea Kelp Wraps
One of the first things that can really help you with weight loss is detoxing your body. Spas and salons that offer a sea kelp wrap can help you accomplish a full body detox. By pulling toxins out of your body through your skin, you begin to feel better. When you feel better, you are more energetic and have higher self-esteem. Those two benefits combined will help you select better, healthier foods on your weight loss plan, and help you exercise.
Massages not only feel incredible, but they also motivate the lymph nodes to produce lymph fluid and eliminate infections from the body. The lymph nodes are stimulated by the rubbing and pushing of your flesh during a massage, which causes the lymph nodes to work harder than they ordinarily would. Anything in your system that is currently making you feel worn down, sick, or unable to move properly and without pain is processed by your lymph nodes. Ergo, massages help remove anything from your system that prevents you from exercising and feeling your best. Do not forget to drink a lot of water after a massage as this helps flush the lymph system!
Saunas also feel amazing, but did you know that they can help you lose weight, too? True, you lose a lot of water weight, but that water was trapped in your tissues. Trapped water causes bloat, weight gain, an pressure on your nerves. It has to go.
Additionally, when you sit in a sauna, your body's temperature is elevated. Your body will work harder to try and cool down, which takes energy. Energy is derived from stored fat and the foods you eat. If you are already on a low-calorie diet, and you are not shoving high-calorie foods in your mouth after sitting in a sauna, then your body will be burning up that low-calorie breakfast or lunch you had prior to climbing into the sauna. Be sure to stay hydrated prior to going into the sauna and while in the sauna so that you can get the maximum benefit from the sauna.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy, often offered by spas, targets stubborn fat areas, like the one under your chin. The cold laser is non-invasive, does not burn, and is only mildly uncomfortable. If you are already close to a healthy weight, but you have some stubborn fat areas that just will not go away no matter how much weight you lose, then you should try the cold laser therapy on these spots.
The therapy is applied by an aesthetician who is trained and licensed to use the cold laser for this procedure. Within a few treatments, you will already notice a difference. However, you should continue with your diet and exercise routine so that the fat that is pushed out of the fat cells in the treated areas does not re-accumulate and will be naturally flushed out of your body as intended.
Combining Services That Make You Feel Good and Look Good
The primary purpose of any salon or spa is to make its clients look good and feel good. By combining various services that accomplish both of these objectives, you can make your goal weight faster than just diet and exercise alone. Call your local spas and salons today to see what they offer.
