Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD (also known as seasonal depression) occurs in anywhere from .5 to 3 percent of the global population. It typically occurs during the winter months, when the sun is usually out for a short period of time, thus depriving the body of Vitamin D. Seasonal affective disorder is more likely to occur in people who already suffer from major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder, however it can affect anyone at any time.
Signs you could be suffering from SAD include ● Feeling depressed ● Feeling sluggish or having no energy ● Feeling hopeless ● Difficulty concentrating ● Thoughts of self harm
Thankfully, there are things you can do to help chase away some of those winter blues. While those who suffer from serious SAD are encouraged to seek immediate professional assistance, a little self care at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle beach can also help boost your mood.
Here are some top spa treatments to help improve your mood if you’re feeling a little gloomy this winter!
Halotherapy is the exposure to Himalayan Salt, such as in our Himalayan Salt Suite. Himalayan Salt has been used for centuries to cure respiratory ailments and to improve the mood.
During a Halotherapy session at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, you will experience total relaxation as you sit in front of a glowing wall of pink Himalayan Salt. You can try one thirty-minute session for just $25, ($30 thereafter) or purchase a package of sessions to experience the benefits of Himalayan Salt on a regular basis.
CBD Treatments & Rituals
CBD has earned a reputation in recent years for promoting relaxation and calm. At Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, our CBD Treatments and Rituals include our Restore Massage and our Relief Massage, and body rituals including the Restore Wrap, the Body Polish, the Scalp Treatment, the Body in Balance Ritual, and treatment add-ons, including the Vitality Booster and the CBD Enhancement, which can be added to your massage treatment to target specific areas of pain on the body.
Couple’s Escape’s are relaxing spa packages designed for two. Studies have shown that getting treatments such as massages together with a trusted partner can improve your mood and strengthen your bond. Chances are, your partner will appreciate the time with you, and the opportunity for a little self care, too.
A massage isn’t just soothing and relaxing, it can also help release important mood-boosting hormones, including dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. It can also help injured muscles, and even improve your athletic performance. Athletic pursuits such as golf, swim, and aerobic fitness have all also been shown to improve the mood, so getting massages can help improve your mental well-being in myriad ways!
Manicures & Pedicures
Manicures and pedicures generally last under an hour, but in that time you can expect to experience pure bliss as your hands and feet are pampered. Best of all, your digits will leave the experience looking fabulous. Manicures and pedicures with nail polish can even perk up your mood when you use a bright, cheerful color.
