Ancient people regularly initiated body massage so as to make healthy and vigorous lifestyle. As Karen Olsen stated in a blog, “Healing retreats have their origins in places such as the asclepieia of ancient Greece, temples where ill people told their dreams to a priest who then recommended treatments, often including a visit to baths or the gymnasium.”
Spa is a sophisticated and trending name for massage. Today’s stressed and exerted lives of masses need spa for their relaxation and temporary rejuvenation, but ancient people required it for the permanent inner strength and vigor. This make their attitude more solid and workaholic.
Including spa with sounds or ‘spa-music’ is not a modern technique too. It has been coming since the sounds of ocean, chirping birds, rivers or rain sounds have been discovered. This is the real music which tends to keep us grounded and closer to nature. Overtime, the nature interactions faded away that results in the purposeful company of sounds and nature, not the natural. However, the trending word today is ‘relaxing music’ but it was suppose to be far beyond relaxation earlier. Spa sounds like ‘rushing river’, rhythmic ocean waves, Harmonious heartbeats, Inspirational water drips adds the spiritual and veridical flavour while spa sessions.
How Spa Music Serves
Treatment with musical spa is beneficial, in fact essential for embellished lifestyle and wellbeing. To state a few benefits:
Heightens positive hormones: Serotonin is considered as the ‘happy’ neurotransmitter by the experts, which feeds better mood, sleep and cognitive abilities to the body. Spa sessions along with natural/environmental tunes increases the level of pleasure hormones like serotonin and dopamine in the bloodstream. Activated positive hormones keeps us more grounded and attached to our roots and gives a secure, blissed feeling.
Reduces Stress levels: spa sounds are the great way to disconnect from the day-to-day complicated lives and welcome the serenity and peace of the night. One can alleviate the stress levels, anxiety and agitation in petty things imbibing these relaxing and calming tunes.
Improves Creativity: A study was conducted on a 7 years old dyslexic, unfocused, boy in which his mom applied a body massage playing the sounds of tidal waves with honch at the background. She did this for half an hour till 6 days when the researchers observed the boy meticulously. Rest of the day after the massage, the boy spend innovating lego boats, ships, castle, star-fish and other stuffs related to water and waves. Good news is that he could explain about every single part he used. He literally left the researchers amused and his mom, emotional. Spa sounds reinforces the brain functioning and blows the creativity balloons in a child’s unfiltered free mind.
Lowers The Heart Rate: People in waiting rooms, hospitals and other clinical environments show a decrease in heart rate when relaxing non-percussive music is present, studies say. Listening to this rejuvenating music with spa helps lower the blood pressure and heart rate. A lower heart rate renders a calmer self and can gives inner peace to focus and achieve our goals easily.
