There’s nothing like visiting a spa to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Whether you see it as giving yourself a special treat after a long week, or perhaps, you’re a regular spa-goer, a trip to the spa is a great way to care for yourself.
While you may be familiar with traditional treatments such as deep tissue massages or facials, the spa industry is constantly coming up with innovations and trends, promising to make the experience more exciting and unique.
In this article, you’ll learn some of the biggest spa treatment trends set to be big in 2023.
- Yoni Steam
Taking the spa world by storm, yoni steam is a controversial treatment known as vaginal steaming. Between monthly menstruation, sexual intercourse, and giving birth, the vagina endures a lot. Add the body’s changing hormones and issues with the pelvic floor, and the vaginal area does need some TLC once in a while. And this is what Yoni steaming is all about.
Although just rising in popularity thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow, Yoni steaming is an age-old remedy to cleanse the uterus and vagina, ease period cramps, and regulate menstruation. It involves sitting on a seat with a hole in it and allowing the herb-infused steam to rise.
While most mainstream spas may still not offer the treatment, you can find specialist spas serving the demand. With a surge of over 120% in online searches, Yoni steaming is expected to be one of the top spa treatment trends this 2023.
- Light Facial Therapy
A form of facial spa set to be big this 2023, light therapy facial is gaining more popularity thanks to Netflix’s Emily in Paris. Light therapy is a popular skin-loving treatment that helps fight inflammation and acne while helping slow down aging.
Although not a new treatment, light therapy masks have become more prominent over the last couple of months. And it will only continue to become more popular as more people invest in at-home masks to use in between their spa treatments.
And to boost the overall experience, some people use tinctures and oil-based products to supplement their light facial therapy sessions. For instance, revitalizing products like Mushroom Revival contain skin-loving ingredients and mushroom extracts that can help enhance the results of light facial therapy.
- Crystal Healing Massages
People have been using crystals for centuries, but they’ve recently gained popularity. Thanks to celebrities like Katy Perry and Megan Fox endorsing the powers of crystal stones, they’re now making their way into the spa industry.
Crystals are a way to enhance a spa treatment to a new level–whether adding them to a facial or a massage. Spas use products infused with crystals for your massages or a crystal roller for facial sessions. Some spas bring crystals into treatment by letting you hold onto crystals or placing them in specific parts of your body.
Some spas believe decorating the treatment room with crystals can have an energetic benefit, inducing deep relaxation or rebalancing your body’s vibrational energies. With the online search for crystal healing massages up to 90% this year, expect to see more offerings of this unique spa treatment as the year progresses.
- Sound Bath
Like crystal massages, a sound bath is a holistic wellness trend taking over the spa industry. While the term suggests the idea of being immersed in water, a sound bath doesn’t involve a bath. Instead, you’ll be bathed in sound waves produced by varying sources, from gongs, tuning forks, singing bowls, and rattles to even the human voice.
A calming sound experience is a form of powerful meditation that has exploded in popularity over recent years, with numerous wellness centers and spas now offering the service. A sound bath intends to change and balance your energy. It also allows your mind to let go completely and helps you relax and feel rejuvenated.
- Gold Massage
Gold massage is a must-try treatment for those looking for a luxurious spa experience. From its name, gold massage refers to a massage that uses 23-karat gold. Tiny particles of gold are massaged throughout the body, penetrating the skin more easily. It is said to help reduce skin redness and inflammation, improve blood circulation, and manage stress. Moreover, your skin also gains a sparkling look and a visible dewy, healthy glow.
Wrapping It Up
