Massages – How Long Do Benefits Last?

Nirvelli Day Spa massageMassages are wonderful.  They help us relax and unwind from the stress and anxiety life can bring.  They give us time to ourselves away from friends and family, and they help us realign our centers of emotional and spiritual balance.  Plus, a great massage can help stave off other medical interventions that are not as natural, and that possibly have unfortunate side effects.  No one will argue that a massage is a great thing to gift yourself or someone else.

How great would it be if one massage and its benefits lasted a whole year or longer?  Well, that is wishful thinking.  We know that’s not possible.  But how long do the benefits of massages last, and how often should you get a massage to keep the good feelings going?

The short answer is that it depends on several factors.  Everyone’s body responds differently to a massage, and everyone’s needs for a massage are different.  Add to that the fact that everyone goes back to situations after a massage with various stressors and lifestyles, so it can be hard to know how long the benefits will last.

Generally speaking, you may feel sore for a couple of days after the massage, which is normal.  Beyond that, the benefits may last a couple of days to an entire week. There are some things you can do to help the relaxing, stress-relieving benefits last for as long as possible.

Avoid Outside Noise

Right after your massage, you will want to drive nice and slow.  Let the aggressive drivers pass you.  Also, do not listen to loud music that gets you pumped up and avoid the TV, especially the news.  Shut out anything from a media source within your control that may stress you.

Keep it Light

Avoid eating a heavy meal after a massage.  Eating a large meal will make your blood pressure rise and make you feel uncomfortable.  Rather, try a light snack like carrots dipped in some light ranch dressing.

Drink Carefully

Avoid caffeinated beverages after a massage as they can make you feel hyper.  Instead, drink water to help with soreness the next day and to hydrate.  Water will also help flush waste from your system.

You can try these additional hacks to make your massage last longer.

  • Wear comfortable, baggy clothes after your massage
  • Avoid strenuous activity
  • Extend your time to yourself
  • Avoid stress
  • Continue getting massages on a weekly or bi-weekly basis

No matter why you are getting a massage, they offer one of the most pleasant feelings of elation and release from stress and anxiety.  While one cannot predict how long massage benefits will last for an individual, you can do certain things to help extend that relaxed feeling.  The main takeaway here is to avoid stress-inducing situations for as long as you possibly can!

When Should You Start a Skincare Regime?

Nirvelli Day Spa skincare treatmentsAs you age, your skin undergoes a drastic transformation. Hence, to meet your changing skin care needs, your skin care treatments must also change. The skin care regime that did wonders in your 20s may not be effective when you are in your 30s or 40s. Our primary goal is to focus on radiant, healthy and youthful-looking skin throughout your life. To make this possible, you have to ensure a regime based on your skin concerns and needs.

Acne is a major concern during the teen years

As a teenager, acne may be your primary concern. For more severe cases, a visit to the dermatologist might be necessary.  The dermatologist will recommend products with acne fighting medications and based on your skin type help you establish a daily cleansing regime.  When you are in your 20s, your main goal will be to protect your skin against any persisting acne. Fine lines and premature aging signs might also erupt especially if you have dry skin or like to tan.

Start your skincare routine early

 It is vital to start your skin care treatment early with a routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and applying retinol as an anti acne and anti aging agent. A good eye cream is also a necessary element. While you are still in your 20s, it is recommended to start applying serums with antioxidant agents like Vitamin C.  These serums not only help the skin maintain a glowing and radiant complexion by exfoliating the dead skin layer, but they also protect against environmental damage and prevents the aging signs.  And of course, there’s nothing better than a luxurious spa facial at Cary’s favorite spa!

You can also opt for the Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid peels as exfoliation which helps with the production of collagen. The acid peels can assist in combating against blackhead and pimple breakouts and eliminate old acne blemishes and scars. Don’t neglect the use of the sunscreens every time you step out of your home.

Skin care treatments in the 30s and beyond

In your 30s a light eye cream or a gel based formula is recommended. The skin around your eyes is very sensitive, and the first signs of aging b reflect in this area. As you step into your 40s (and beyond), your skin requires more moisture and care, so anti-aging products and moisturizers become more important than when you were younger.  Good moisturizing is the key element for mature and aging skin, and a good skin care routine, high in peptides and other anti-aging ingredients are beneficial.

It is always better to start early with the skin care treatments. You have to understand that every skin is different. Hence, the skin care routine is different. It is ideal to start with a skin care regime as early as your teens.  Maintaining a routine adjusted for your age will keep your skin nourished, radiant, and glowing for years to come.

Nirvelli Day Spa in Cary NC is your home for skincare treatments for all ages and types of skin.  Call today for a consultation and a treatment that is right for you.
