Soothing touch—whether it’s massage, energy work, a facial, or a glorious combination of the many treatments available—offers a bevy of therapeutic benefits beyond simple relaxation. Therapeutic bodywork can relieve stress, body aches, and joint pain, as well as provide an overall sense of well-being, thanks to the release of opiate-like endorphins. Some people walk out of a massage looking like they’ve had a three-martini lunch.
With the Cape Cod wintertime upon us and gray, mushy spring not far behind, a spa treatment can make the difference between experiencing the season wrapped in a sense of well-being or trudging wearily through the cold. The Cape and Islands area is blessed with a variety of spas and healing centers, and we offer a sampling below. Try a treatment and feel the season’s cold shoulder give way to a warm embrace of health. It’s certainly better for you than a martini!
