Ginger Body Rub

Ginger Body Rub

A trip to the spa is supposed to refresh your mind and the body. You may associate it most with aroma baths and massage but one way that you can refresh your body is through the beauty treatments that are available.

Body rub with ginger is similar to the body wrap.
This holistic skin care treatment is inspired by Ayurvedic medicine, which celebrates the warming power of ginger. Warm essential oils and freshly grated ginger are rubbed all over the skin to increase body temperature. The client is then wrapped in a heated blanket for about twenty minutes to sweat out toxins in the system. This treatment may be followed by a Vichy shower and a massage to complete the relaxing and detoxifying process.

The benefits of a body rub includes anxiety reduction, relief of depression, pain control and temporarily reduced heart rate, blood pressure and anxiety. Massage may work by stimulating the body to release endorphins and seratonin and by aiding sleep and relaxation.
