During this Covid-19 pandemic, we mostly spend time at home. It is a great time to enjoy the family company and it is also a great time to redecorating in some parts of the house by creating a nice atmosphere. A Spa theme decoration concept could be interesting. Imagine if you inhale a scent of aroma when you walk into the house, how refreshing would it be. But for a professional spa environment it goes beyond just a nice scent of aroma. Of course, there is more to it. Let's take a look what aspects they are considering in a spa top professional environment that we can bring to our home spa. Most of professional spa interior and decoration are base for the well being and holistic approach for their client. There are five main components which are visual, touch, scent, taste and sound.
Visual is based on decoration themes like location, color, comfort, style. You will find that most of spa decorations follow their identity and provide for customer rest and private escape. Some do have nice scenery near a beach, mountain, waterfall, or even in a city spa that provides steam room and jacuzzi for their customer to seek out of those facilities to benefit their health and well being. We may not be able to compete with professional spa in this respect, but what we could do for example, create a natural friendly atmosphere at home with a simple touch, such as a nice vase with flowers, a green plant in some corner, a comfortably cotton pillow, a nice piece of soap bar/bath salt/shampoo in the bath room, a nice picture of mountain, the sea, or buddha that may lead you to further relaxation, mediation, or yoga at home.
Touch is one of elements are important at a spa. Mostly, it is widely known that spas provide different types of massage service, such as head/scalp message, facial treatment, body massage/scrub/mask, foot spa and reflexology. The ideal of touch therapy is to stimulate the blood circulation in different part of the body which all reflex to the heart. Once our body had a good circulation it results in good skin, youth, muscle tone and more. how to create touch at home is simply, for example, stimulate our skin by scrubbing, massage, moisturising with some spa product. Having jacuzzi bath will stimulate our body while inhaling a scent of essential/ bath salt.
Taste, we can see many spas offering spa cuisine that provides clean food for healthy and detoxification. This also includes a lot of herbs and natural benefits of drink and snack we have. The main idea is to rejuvenate our body to rebalance with a healthy digestive system. Apart from clean food, we can also enjoy a sip of herbal drink from a tea pot which there are different types of teas. For example, green tea where research found that it could recover skin from sun damage and against prostate cancer. Lemongrass tea is a good cleanser that helps to detoxify the liver, pancreas, kidneys, bladder and the digestive tract. It cuts down uric acid, cholesterol, excess fats and other toxins in the body while stimulating digestion, blood circulation, and lactation; it also alleviates indigestion and gastroenteritis. Also, it can reduce blood pressure. Just make a concoction by boiling some lemon grass leaves, let it cool for a while and drink the liquid.
Sound is originally referred to natural sound like wave, bird, river, and music. The music is commonly used in spas combined with sounds of running waterfall. Music is also well known as sound therapy. We know how music works to make us feel happy, tranquil, energized or even to facilitate healing. Most researchers into sound therapy agree that sound waves or frequencies are responsible for music's ability to influence us and many researchers believe that they may have therapeutic benefits that go far beyond the ability to alter our moods, believing the right frequencies used in the right combinations may be able to bring about biological changes that can help boost our immune system and even heal the body. At home, we are choosing different kinds of music that we prefer.
