Hello and welcome to our blog here at The Cottage Therapies in beautiful Dungannon. Today we thought we would take a look at why many beauty treatments not only make you look better, they make you feel better mentally too. Did you know that the number 1 cause of ill health and disability throughout the world is depression which is a very sobering thought.
Anxiety & Stress Causing Depression
A great deal of depression is brought on by anxiety and stress. We live in a fast paced, stressful world where our minds are never at rest and we are constantly multi tasking with a dozen different thoughts going around our heads at any one time. However clever we may be our minds simply can`t cope with the amount of information that it seems to be receiving 24/7 through the TV, the radio and of course the ubiquitous social media channels.
In these hectic times it makes a lot of sense to put a little time away each day, or at least once or twice a week, for a bit of me time. A time when we can get away from the stresses of everyday life, let the mind drift away to somewhere peaceful, and completely relax. This is not being self centred or selfish, the plain fact is that if we don`t do this once in a while our minds and bodies just can`t cope and we can end up breaking down.
Massages & Pampering Sessions
Relaxing and unwinding can have a positive effect on the skin and the digestive system too, and one of the best ways to unwind can be through various health and beauty treatments. Massages and pampering sessions are particularly great stress busters. Having just relaxing whilst you have a manicure and a pedicure can send out a positive message to your mind and body. Face masks are a very relaxing beauty treatment and unwinding in a hot tub with yourself or some friends can bring great benefits to you.
And of course when you look better you also feel better and it can give your mental well being a great boost when you treat yourself to some relaxing beauty treatments, whatever they may be. At The Cottage Therapies we do our best to make all our customers relax and feel special, and it is always good to see them leave the beauty salon with a spring in their step and a smile on their face! To book a beauty treatment at our salon you can either call in or just give us a call on 028 8775 3378 and we will be happy to assist you.
