The New Year is the perfect time to get started on new wellness goals. Whether you’re trying to be kinder to yourself or looking to lose weight (or anything else!), when the clock struck 12 midnight on January 1, many people across the world pledged to give themself a new start.
But for some, achieving those goals requires a little extra help. You can’t expect to lose weight without adapting a healthy diet, and you certainly can’t be kinder to yourself if you are feeling low and depressed. Worse yet, with the darker days of winter upon us, seasonal depression is a common problem, and can make a bad situation worse.
Thankfully, there are some things you can do to help yourself triumph over these struggles. The WELL program at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach is our answer. WELL is our “Center for health, wellness, and beyond”. Here are some WELL spa treatments that can help promote weight loss and alleviate the symptoms of depression!
The Himalayan Salt Suite
The healing powers of Himalayan salt have been trusted for centuries. Just a few minutes in our Himalayan Salt Suite can help aid in weight loss, because Himalayan salt has been found to regulate cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that is often responsible for increasing fat due to stress.
Himalayan salt exposure can also aid in alleviating signs of depression, by boosting brain function due to the negative ions in the salt.
Other benefits of the Himalayan Salt Suite include a better pH balance of the body, reduced signs of aging, regulation of blood sugar, an increase in libido, and respiratory relief.
The Infrared Sauna
The Infrared Sauna has many benefits for helping lose weight as well. This is due to the calorie burning effects of infrared heat. It occurs when your body’s core temperature increases, amping up the blood flow to your skin. This in turn boosts your metabolism, encouraging your body to burn fat and calories faster!
Depression occurs when the hormones dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin are low. Regular use of the Infrared Sauna at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach can boost the levels of these brain chemicals, making you feel better following your treatment.
The Infrared Sauna can even reduce levels of cortisol, the stress hormone!
If you are looking to gain control of your depression or lose weight naturally, regular visits to our Infrared Sauna can help. To book your Infrared Sauna package, please contact Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach today!
