One of the many reasons that our guests choose to stay at Cliffrose Lodge is our close proximity to Zion National Park. But while spending a few days hiking the park’s iconic trails will certainly get your blood pumping, if you want to show your mind and body some love during your next trip, you’ll also want to schedule some time at Five Petals Spa.
From massages to facials to luxury amenities like a sauna and steam room, our on-site spa is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Still on the fence about scheduling a visit? Keep reading to learn a few of the reasons why you should book a spa day during your next vacation.
Whether you’re someone who likes to go with the flow and enjoy plenty of downtime during your vacations or you prefer to pack as much into your days as possible, taking a vacation is a great way to get away from the stress of daily life. You’re [hopefully] leaving work behind, spending quality time with family or friends, and giving your brain and body a break.
But vacations aren’t always stress-free. Long drives and traffic can make getting to your destination a drag. If you’re a parent, wrangling your kids and their gear, and dealing with more frequent meltdowns as your regular routines are interrupted can turn your vacation into more work than fun. And if you’re so busy trying to make the most of your time away, you might not leave yourself any time to rest.
Scheduling time for some relaxation with a visit to the spa is a great way to get intentional about relieving stress during your next vacation. From a relaxing massage to a rejuvenating facial or some time in the sauna, a visit to Five Petals Spa at Cliffrose Lodge is the perfect getaway from your next getaway!
Do you find yourself not getting enough sleep at least a few days each month—or even each week? You’re not alone. A whopping 70 percent of American adults report that they don’t get enough sleep at least one day each month; 11 percent get insufficient sleep every single night.
You might try to catch back up on some of that lost sleep during your vacation. But while you may enjoy a few nights of restful slumber, it likely won’t have that big an impact on your sleep patterns long term. If you want to do something more impactful for your future self, consider booking a massage at Five Petals Spa instead.
Massage therapy has been proven to help you sleep better for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a great way to alleviate stress, which can keep you up at night and cause you to not sleep as deeply. That’s because during your massage your body will release cortisol, a stress hormone, and enjoy an increase in serotonin and dopamine, which help to stabilize your mood. A massage can also help to alleviate pain and tension caused by injuries or stress. That way, your body can relax, allowing you to fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply.
Rid Your Body of Toxins
A massage isn’t the only way that a visit to the spa can help your body to relax and detox. During your visit to Five Petals Spa, you can also take advantage of our saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs.
Studies have found that soaking in a hot tub or relaxing in a sauna or steam room, where your body temperature is raised and you begin to sweat, can actually help you to reap some of the same benefits you enjoy from a low to moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, like walking or cycling. Of course, you can still squeeze in a sweaty workout to help your body relax and detox during your visit to Five Petals Spa, if you’re looking for a more relaxing way to rid your body of toxins, a visit to our hot tubs, sauna, or steam room is a great choice.
Restore Your Mental Balance
If there’s one positive that came out of the past few years, it’s that we now have an increased awareness of the importance of mental health. While taking care of your body is important, a healthy body is nothing without a healthy mind.
If you’ve been feeling worn down or overly stressed, a long day of pampering might be just the thing to help set your mind at ease and help you finally unwind.
