With the start of spring, and Stress Awareness Month in April, it’s the perfect time to readjust your total body and self-care routine.

By regularly incorporating self-care treatments such as facials, massages and assisted stretch treatments into your routine, you will improve your overall health, reduce stress and be more prepared for the season and all of the activities that come along with it.

The best part? Self-care treatments are easily the most enjoyable part of any wellness routine.

Massage Envy are dishing some of the best tips to help you renew, and realign during this spring awakening.

Don’t Stretch Alone

Warm weather season means people are lacing up their running shoes and getting outside for their fitness routine. But if you’ve been in hibernation all winter, it’s extremely important to stretch before exerting yourself to prevent injury. Want to learn what stretching can do for you? Try the Streto Method stretch treatment at a Massage Envy near you. Therapists take you through a 30 or 60 minute guided stretch so you can hit the ground running this season…literally!

Revamp Your Skin Care Routine for the Changing Temperatures

The switch from dry, cold air to warm, humid temps can give your skin the change of season blues. To ease your complexion’s transition, it’s important to incorporate facials into your skin care routine. Your skin cells turnover every 30 days so try to book a facial at the end of each life cycle for maximum results.

Treat Your Muscles

Think massages are just for relaxation and pampering? Think again! Getting your muscles worked on through massage is just as important to your wellness routine as fitness and nutrition. It helps keep your body working at peak efficiency. Plus, it’s more enjoyable than either of those – win/win!

Address Your Stress

Winter can be stressful – it’s time to start the new season in a healthier state of mind. One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax

Did you know that your skin care products perform even better after a Chemical Peel? Try an advanced skin treatment like a PCA Chemical Peel at Massage Envy to start the season – its ultra-exfoliation will remove dead cells and speed up the penetration and effectiveness of your product regimens.
