People have been attending spas for thousands of years for their numerous health benefits. Spas remain just as popular today, but modern life means it can be difficult to find the time to regularly attend a spa.

However, if you’re thinking of creating your own home spa so you can relax whenever you want in the privacy of your home, here are 5 benefits wish just might help you make up your mind:

You can create a spa that is designed around you

When you visit a commercial spa, everything in the spa has been designed and chosen by someone else. Even though the design may be beautiful, and the fittings and fixtures are top-quality, it may not be to your taste.

Working with a specialist spa firm like Nordic, you have total control over the design of the spa as well as having the final say on the materials used. For instance, you may choose to cover the floor in high-quality wood and the walls inexpensive porcelain tiles.

2. It provides you an opportunity to relax as a family

Hectic work schedules and social commitments mean it can be difficult to spend quality time together as a family. Sitting in a sauna or hot tub without the distractions of electronic devices is a perfect opportunity to catch up on what you’ve done during the day and to make plans for family trips.

3. Save money in the long-term

While there will be an initial expense in creating your home spa, in the long run you will be saving money by not having to visit a commercial spa (that’s if you can find one local to you which doesn’t have a waiting list!).

Joining a spa generally involves paying a membership fee and then paying monthly installments. These installments can range from £120 up to £300 plus for a luxurious spa and some treatments may not be included in this cost.

4. It’s great for your health

We’ve already mentioned that people in the past attended spas for their health benefits and this hasn’t changed today.

The hot air that is produced in a sauna or steam room will greatly benefit those who suffer from respiratory problems, like asthma as it helps to open the airways which make it easier for people to breathe. This hot air can also help people who are suffering from coughs and colds. Plus, we can’t forget to mention that saunas or steam showers are excellent for rejuvenating the skin, making it look and feel fantastic.

If you like to work-out or take part in strenuous sports, a soak in a hot tub or a hot steam shower will help to relax tired and stiff muscles.

5. It’s good for the environment

A surprising benefit of a home spa is that it’s also good for the environment as you won’t be using transport to travel back and forth to the spa. Therefore, you’re doing your small bit to reduce carbon emissions.

At the end of a long tiring day or week, sit back and unwind in your own heavenly home spa and wash away any stress and fatigue.
