A day at the spa can be a relaxing, invigorating experience. In 2016, it was found that there were over 16,000 day spas. And going to the spa for a day or even a specific treatment has increased in popularity, experiencing a 2% jump in spa visits between 2014 and 2015. In that same period of time, the spa industry experienced a 5% growth in revenue, jumping from around $15 billion to around $16 billion, a considerable increase. Part of this is because millennials have an increased focus on health and wellness and are more likely to visit an esthetician or masseuse in the name of taking care of themselves. Statistics have shown that over half of millennials in the United States visited a spa at least once last year. This increase has culminated in almost 2 million Americans visiting a spa in just 2016 alone.
There are many reasons to go to a day spa and many ways to achieve rest and relaxation at one. A licensed esthetician can provide beauty and relaxation services like eyebrow tinting. They can provide a variety of services for the client’s eyebrows as well as recommending hair products and facial products. Many spas offer facials performed by licensed estheticians, giving clients reinvigorated skin as well as a chance to close their eyes and relax. Estheticians at spas are also equipped with waxing equipment and provide a variety of waxing services for their clients. Different waxes provide different benefits, but an esthetician can make it as comfortable a process as possible.
Many spas also provide massage services. A massage can provide pain relief from sore muscles as well as full body relaxation. There are different types of massages and a licensed and skilled masseuse can help you decide which would be best suited to you and your needs.
Going to a spa can be just what you need after a stressful period in your life. It can provide rejuvenation and relaxation as well as skin care and pain relief. Massages and the services an esthetician can provide are only some of the services, products, and experiences available at a day spa. The spa industry is becoming ever more prosperous, and for good reason. A spa day provides many benefits, and few downsides.
