While many spas are adult only, there are a number that offer teenage spa treatments available, which offer benefits ranging from relaxation to learning about self care in a positive way.
Going back to school can be stressful, especially in the wake of a global pandemic. For many this year is filled with more anxiety than normal, and lots of parents and teachers have been left wondering how to help their kids to manage stress and anxiety. We have often spoken about the value of spa treatments as part of overall wellbeing management, helping to ease mental strain as well as physical aches and pains.
While a spa treatment isn’t going to solve all your problems, it can be a meaningful part of wellbeing management, and early introductions to those tools for health and wellbeing can be fun, important in their own right, and also provide time and space to slow things down and give parents and teens a chance to spend time together – which is usually when we start talking about what’s on our minds.
Here are a few favourites to give you inspiration…
