So you’ve been feeling a little bummed out or tired from work all week—it’s time to treat yourself to a spa day. The good thing about spa days is that you can make them whatever you want. You can focus on different areas of your body or simply do something that works for all of it. If you’re looking for ideas on what to do for your next spa day, here are some pointers.

Relax in a hot tub or shower.


One of the first things you can do is dip your entire body in a hot, warm, or steamy tub and relax your body and mind. You can add a bath bomb or set up an oil diffuser with your favorite essential oil fragrances so you can indulge in aromatherapy as well. If you don’t have a hot tub, you can also relax in a shower. You can feel the water going down your body, starting from your head, and use a lathering body wash with floral scents or your preferred kind. As you do this, be present in the moment. Don’t think about work, don’t think about life outside that shower, just be there with yourself. Have a warm towel ready so you can wrap yourself in it after your bubble bath.

Get a back massage.

You’re also going to want to get a massage, specifically a back massage. Your back holds a lot of tension for the rest of your body, so it’s important that you take care of it every once in a while. If you work behind a desk all day, you will notice a lot of tension in your shoulders and neck. Likewise, your lower back takes a toll from sitting down for too long each day. One of the best things you can do for this is getting a deep tissue back massage, or visit an NYC chiropractor like Dr. Robert Shire for comprehensive spine care and pain relief treatments.

Dr. Robert Shire has years of experience in chiropractic care. He can help you get the chiropractic adjustments you need to release any built-up stress and tension from your weekly stressors. Dr. Shire will analyze any areas of interference in your back and neck and use an integrated approach like kinesiology and other techniques to check for scoliosis, aches, low back pain, and signs of any type of injury in your back. He will also provide physical therapy for any back problems so you can be completely confident that your back is well taken care of.

Get your body sculpted.


Moreover, you can get your body sculpted at Nowak Aesthetics with EMSCULPT Neo technology. EMSCULPT Neo is a treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) and electromagnetic field (EMHIF+) technologies to reduce fat and tighten skin throughout your body. It contracts your muscles to simulate 10,000 sit-ups or squats per treatment so you can get sculpted abs without the hard work. Signing up for body sculpting with an EMSCULPT Neo package at Nowak Aesthetics provides you with a chance to get the body of your dreams.

Use a face mask.

Another thing you can do on your spa day is using a face mask, which can be hydrating, nourishing, and rejuvenating for your face. You can buy one online, at your favorite spa, or simply make your own mask with ingredients like oatmeal, honey, yogurt, and turmeric powder. You can even add sugar to create an exfoliating effect as you lather your face with it. After you apply it to your face, simply sit back and relax as you listen to some classical music, Lo-Fi, or nature sounds that can make you feel like you’re in a spa.

Get a makeover.


Lastly, you can give yourself a complete makeover by altering your entire appearance from your hair to your makeup and clothes, and by treating your nails and feet to a mani and pedi. The idea is to give yourself a sense of freshness and rejuvenation so you can take on another week of work with your head held high.

Try these ideas for yourself so you can have a relaxing spa day at home or on the go.
