Need to relax and unwind? The Annecy region has some excellent spas and wellness areas. The opportunity to take care of yourself during a pleasant session.
The benefits of the spa on our body
For a very long time, Man has used hot water for its therapeutic benefits. The Romans installed numerous thermal baths during the occupation of Gaul. Nowadays, the combination of heat and massage stimulates the production of endorphins, known as the happiness hormone. After a day’s work, the spa allows you to relax by relieving muscular tension.
The effects of a hammam or a sauna are not just temporary, they last for several days. As such, these moments of relaxation are increasingly used by athletes. They help to eliminate toxins and reduce excess lactic acid in the muscles. Finally, many spas use aromatherapy. This therapy with essential oils diffuses a pleasant fragrance, which stimulates and strengthens the natural defences. To complete the benefits of the spa on your body, you can also call on a specialist inhypnosis in Annecy, to accompany, for example, the implementation of a diet.
