Stress describes the pressures we all face every day – physical, emotional, mental or even chemical. It activates your sympathetic nervous system, releasing stress hormones throughout your body, and this makes you ready to handle a sudden stressful event. It prepares you to take emergency action.

But when there’s no relief from stress, no down time, that’s when it becomes a problem. Then it becomes “distress,” which is a negative stress reaction.

But there are ways to manage and alleviate stress. Take a break and schedule the most helpful spa treatment for the specific type of stress you are facing.

1. Anxiety
Try an aromatherapy massage with lavender, which is thought to reduce the negative effects of stress hormones such as cortisol. Or schedule reflexology (a foot massage), again with lavender.

2. Tense muscles
Thermotherapy, such as a visit to a steam room or sauna, is a heat therapy that causes your body temperature to rise. Your body recognizes this increased temperature as fever and responds by producing more white blood cells, which in turn boost your immune system. Steam rooms reduce adrenaline and increase endorphin levels, too, so they are also good for your mental health.

3. Body aches
These can be reduced through stretching and massage. Choose a day spa that offers Thai massage, which includes stretching.

4. Insomnia or other sleep problems
Special massage for insomnia, sometimes combined with aromatherapy, helps your body decompress and relax into slumber.

5. Nail biting
Schedule a relaxing manicure and throw in a pedicure, too.

6. Headaches
Massage that focuses on the neck, shoulders and head will decrease the discomfort and pain of tension and migraine headaches.

7. Skin problems
Reserve a facial to nourish and repair your skin or a full-body exfoliation that will leave you feeling relaxed and silky. Or go in for a makeup lesson and application.

8. Impatience or short temper
Massage increases your level of serotonin, the hormone that makes you happy and causes you to have a positive outlook. And smelling a fragrance during an aromatherapy treatment causes your olfactory receptors send a message to your limbic system, which deals with your instincts, moods and emotions.

9. Back pain
People have used hot stone therapy since ancient times. Usually, heated basalt river rocks are used because they retain heat and are smooth. They warm, relax and soothe aching muscles.

Did you know that eating 1 cup of blueberries a day helps fight stress and reduces anxiety just about as well as many anti-anxiety medications? (Annoying side effects not included!)


Blueberries contain high levels of the antioxidant ellagic acid which soothes the brain much like Valium. They also contain compounds similar to a variety of mood-stabilizing medications.
