Have you heard of these well-known or more obscure options?
When you think about spas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? For many, it's thoughts of facials, massages, and mani/pedis. However, despite those that are well-known, there are many unique unheard-of spa treatments. In this guide, we're covering both the famous and obscure spa treatments you can experience the next time you visit a resort.
Some of the most popular treatments people receive at spas are facials. Aestheticians use various products for exfoliating, massaging, moisturizing, peeling off dead skin, and steaming your facial skin. In addition to unclogging pores, facials also help enhance blood circulation. You'll find that some facial treatments are specifically for addressing dark circles and eye puffiness.
One of the most popular eyebrow enhancement spa treatments involves micro-blading. However, there's much apprehension and skepticism about this treatment. As a result, the ombre brow is a new technique that's trending. The process involves using engraved needles that create a soft and moderate brow darkening.
When someone hears about a volcano, the last thing they typically think about is skincare. There's an emerging trend in using volcanic minerals to enhance skincare. These minerals include iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium chloride, and sulfur. These are said to be great for reducing inflammation and detoxifying your skin.
For many years, hammam beds, mud therapy, and saunas have circulated through spas for relaxation. As people realize their benefits, these treatments are growing in popularity. Often used to help draw impurities from the skin, boost your immune system or offer you a more relaxed state to achieve a better night's sleep. In addition, mud therapy is thought to help temporarily relieve pain from arthritis and even improve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

This spa-like technique involves walking through the forest. The ultimate reconnection with nature, completely uninterrupted. According to experts, forest bathing can help reduce stress, reduce cortisol levels, and relieve depression.
