Taking a vacation is good for you. In Europe, France has legally mandated 30 days of paid annual leave for workers; Sweden, 25, Spain, 22, Germany and the UK 20. Elsewhere, Canada and Japan mandate 10 days. The U.S. mandate: 0, according to the Center for Economic Policy Research, quoted in the New York Times.
These days, many Americans find themselves under stress from uncertainty in the financial system and stock markets. If a full-blown vacation is not practical at the moment, a mini-getaway can help people feel better in mind, body and spirit.
A visit to a spa can do an enormous amount of good for someone who is tired, stressed and needs a break. A spa visit, even just for a day, can help people relax and rejuvenate.
Massage is a very helpful tool in relaxation. Massage releases the tension held in muscles tightened by stress, it drains the lymph system, detoxifies the body, improves circulation and provides a deep level of relaxation.
The Spa at Norwich Inn offers a menu of over 15 different massages, designed for different needs and preferences. For men – or women – Sports Massage works on two sites in the body to provide relief from overworked muscles. Deep Tissue Massage releases pain in chronically tight muscles, as well as the rest of the body.
Native Hot Stone Therapy uses heated, smoothed stones to bring heat and relief to sore muscles. For people who find aromatherapy relaxing and soothing, we offer an Aromatherapy Massage and a PhytoTherapy Swedish Massage, using custom-blended aromatic plant oils.
Our Personal Prescription Plan allows you and your massage therapist to create an individual plan for a therapy based on your needs that can include a combination of Deep Tissue, Sports, PhytoTherapy and Hot Stone Massages.
So if you can’t take a typical vacation, think about a Spa Day. Give us a call at 860.886.2401 or visit www.thespaatnorwichinn.com to learn how we can help you customize a mini-break or several days of a relaxing vacation break.
