Why You Should Visit a Spa in Marrakech Shortly After Landing

A traveler might assume that their stress will melt away as soon as they get on the plane. However, it’s not so simple. Stress has a nasty way of lingering in the body and mind. Of course, traveling and vacationing themselves can bring their anxieties.

If you’re looking to visit the beautiful sights of Marrakech, it’s wise for you to visit a spa and get a massage shortly after landing. Whether you’re aware of it or not, you might still carry some unwanted baggage that could take away from your trip.

A Quick Reminder On Travel-Related Stress

While traveling and vacationing may seem, at first thought, to be relaxing and stress-free, there are always a few things that could throw your getaway into turbulence. For example:

  • Lost luggage
  • Turbulent flight
  • Delays/cancellations
  • Jet lag
  • Crying or sick children
  • Difficulty clearing through borders/customs
  • Hotel booking mishaps
  • Unmet expectations
  • And much more…

The lesson here is that traveling itself doesn’t automatically release you from the grip of stress. This is why we recommend getting a relaxing massage upon arrival.

In a city like Marrakech, there are plenty of activities and outings for visitors, and it’s easy to get swept away in the excitement. For an individual who has arrived with deep-seated stress, these burdens may subtly take away the experience. That’s why a massage shortly after landing can prevent this from happening.

The Benefits Of a Massage In a Marrakech Spa

You can feel the stress of traveling and daily living in your muscles, see it on your skin, hear it in your mind and so much more. In other words, it affects the whole body. By getting a treatment at a spa in Marrakech, you can try one of many massages that heal and rejuvenate the mind and body as a whole.

Whether they are traditional massages or internationally-recognized ones, you should find one that offers you an uplifting release from stress and its effects. In many cases, an hour or two is enough to leave you feeling energized yet at ease for several days. We’ll highlight three massages that will resonate with you if stress and a busy routine are taking you out of your element.

Relaxing Massage

A relaxing massage offers what its name suggests – a powerful feeling of relaxation and calmness. The purpose of this type of massage is to get the body to relax so that the muscles are soothed and the joints regain their flexibility.

Here at Riad Farnatchi Spa, we offer a relaxing massage that promotes a deep sense of physical and mental calmness over the course of 60 or 90 mins. We also use various essential oils to aid healing such as verbena and rose oil.

Energizing Massage

The flipside of stress and anxiety is fatigue and weakness. This is common among people who are always on the go, whether it’s due to a hectic work schedule, long commute or too much multitasking (ie. burnout).

Our Prana Vitality massage is a 60-minute treatment that focuses on restoring energy and improving circulation to the body by means of detoxification. It accomplishes this by releasing toxins which build up in the body, causing fatigue and weakness.

We use a combination of energy-boosting essential oils including juniper berry, geranium, lemongrass and patchouli to help the body restore its vitality.

Therapeutic Massage

Fatigue, toxins and other stressors can take root in the body, and cause lingering health complaints that last for years. A therapeutic massage is by no means a cure for this, but it does address some of the symptoms of long-term stress.

For example, our Ku Nye body massage delivers benefits that extend from the inside out. It helps remediate dry skin but also relieves deep fatigue. This 90-minute massage incorporates Tibetan body treatments such as Tibetan cupping, kneading and acupressure to release physical and mental tension.

Let Stress Melt In Marrakech

No matter how long your flight was or what awaits you back at the office, it’s only fair that your stay in Marrakech is free of such distracting thoughts. A brief massage at a spa in Marrakech, such as our Farnatchi Spa, can do the trick.

You will walk away feeling energized, calm and light on your feet. More importantly, you will feel ready to conquer the grand and glorious sights of the city without carrying any unnecessary baggage.
