Few events in life can match the excitement of having a baby. As many moms can attest, however, growing that baby can take a toll on your body. Women go through a myriad of changes during those nine months of pregnancy. Day spas understand that moms-to-be need a little bit of pampering every once in a while, which is why The Fountain Spa has added several services tailored for our pregnant clients. If you are about to add a bundle of joy to your family, learn how we can make your pregnancy more comfortable with our pre-natal treatments.
The health of a woman’s skin can greatly fluctuate during pregnancy. While some expectant mothers have that “glow,” others experience dryness, acne breakouts, and even rashes. The Fountain Spa’s pre-natal facial can help calm distressed pregnant facial skin. Our skincare practitioners specialize in different skin needs, including those of expectant mothers. When you take advantage of our pre-natal facial, you can see for yourself a noticeable difference in the clarity and texture of your skin.
Mom-to-Be Tummy Treatment
Many women worry about getting stretch marks on their stomachs during pregnancy. Because of the baby’s rapid growth, the skin often cannot acclimate quickly enough. As a result, lines appear across the midsection. Gentle massage and moisturizing can alleviate the formation of pregnancy stretch marks. Our tummy treatment includes the application of safe essential oils that can keep the skin soft and pliable throughout the pregnancy.
Pregnancy often produces aches and pain in expectant mothers. Added weight on the back and swollen extremities can leave women in discomfort for much of their last trimester. The pre-natal massage lessens the stress and strain on a pregnant woman’s body. Massage specialists trained to work on expectant mothers can relieve tension in the body and soothe hurting muscles.
Let The Fountain Spa carry away your pregnancy pain and discomfort. If you’re an expectant mother in Hackensack, Ramsey, or Englewood, call us today at (201) 327-5155 for an appointment. We also encourage prospective clients to visit our website to learn more about our special pre-natal treatment options.
All kinds of massage can relax and rejuvenate, but each type has its own techniques. This video explains how to know the difference between a Swedish massage and deep tissue massage the next time you head to the spa.
The main distinction between Swedish massage and deep tissue massage is pressure. When you receive a Swedish massage, the masseuse typically uses only her hands and fingers to release muscle tension. If you opt for a deep tissue massage, the masseuse may use her forearms or elbows to produce a greater amount of force, which can work out stubborn knots in the back and other areas of pain and stiffness.
The Fountain Spa is a med and massage spa for residents in the Ramsey and Hackensack communities. Call (201) 327-5155 to learn more about our day spa services.
Some credit the sun with giving their complexion a healthy glow. A tawny radiance may temporarily disguise skin imperfections, but UVA and UVB rays deteriorate underlying collagen, causing it to collapse and the skin to wrinkle. If sun exposure leads to sunburn, it can also create rough patches of dried out and peeling skin. Facials spas want clients to indulge in the joys of summer while avoiding the dangers of sun exposure. To keep your skin looking its best during the warmer months, consider these summer skincare tips:
Slather on the Sunscreen
No amount of time should be spent outside without proper sunscreen protection. Though summer is the prime time for sunburns, skin damage can occur any day of the year. A broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential for protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Since it takes a few minutes for sunscreen to provide sun protection, hold off on leaving the house for approximately a half-hour after applying it to your face.
Cover Your Face
For optimal sun safety, don’t rely on sunscreen alone for protection from skin damage. Any time you head outdoors, grab a pair of sunglasses. The skin around the eyes is thin and sensitive to sun damage, and glasses can ward off the occurrence of future crow’s feet. Be sure to pick out a pair of sunglasses that safeguards against both UVA and UVB rays.
Treat Yourself to a Facial
Even when you do your part to avoid sun exposure, high temperatures, strong winds, and saltwater air can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dull, dry, and in need of repair. Periodic facials can restore your skin’s luster. A skincare specialist can gently exfoliate damaged surface cells and hydrate your newly revealed complexion with nourishing moisturizers.
If your skin is already feeling the effects of the hot summer sun, The Fountain Spa can help. Our facial spa offers soothing facial services to clients in Hackensack, Ramsey, Englewood, and Upper Saddle River. To schedule an appointment, call (201) 327-5155.
Day spas offer a variety of treatments that help guests feel relaxed and cleansed physically and mentally. If you plan to visit the spa, you can enhance this feeling by altering your eating habits. The Fountain Spa offers guests a special spa cuisine menu, which features an assortment of delectable choices perfect for lunch in between spa treatments.
Guests can have food delivered to the Tranquility Room so they may refuel in between appointments. Our spa cuisine menu features something for everyone, making it easy for you to find the perfect meal to enjoy during your spa day. Try our lemon-grilled chicken served with either mandarin oranges or on a wrap with spinach and tomato. You can also try our roasted turkey lettuce wrap, turkey chef salad, tuna sandwich, or grilled vegetable wrap.
