How a Simple Marrakech Manicure & Pedicure Goes a Long Way to Relieve Stress
We have discussed at length the benefits of therapies such as hammam treatments and ILA-based treatments. To de-stress, it may seem like you will only find relief by means of a deep, penetrating massage.
However, the gentle touch of a manicure or pedicure upon your arrival in Marrakech can do the trick. Although these procedures may seem more suited for beauty purposes, they can certainly help if you want to improve your overall state of wellness.
Better Circulation to Your Extremities
It’s easy to forget that your fingers and toes require sufficient blood flow to remain healthy. For those of you with circulation issues or who live in colder climates, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the numbness of poor circulation on a very cold day!
Both manicures and pedicures help to stimulate healthy blood circulation to your fingers, toes, and nails. The better your circulation, the more oxygen will reach your extremities. The result is a decrease in joint pain, increased mobility in the hands and feet, and even stronger nails.
Reduce Stress & Boost Your Sense of Well-Being
Manicures and pedicures reduce stress and boost your sense of well-being both directly and indirectly. There is a physical component to them because the practitioners gently touch and scrub the feet and hands. It isn’t as vigorous as a deep tissue massage, but it is sufficient enough to release your feel-good neurotransmitters/hormones (ie. oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin). These are the brain and body chemicals that promote feelings of wellness and calm.
A Marrakech manicure and pedicure will also induce a sense of relaxation simply because you are undergoing a procedure that promotes beauty and is carried out at a leisurely pace. You are being pampered after all – what could be more relaxing than that!
Protects Against the Effects of Winter
As we mentioned above, some of you are no doubt familiar with the effects of a colder climate and what it does to your fingers and toes. Unfortunately, the effects – which can include dryness, peeling, and cracking – are often chronic.
They can be persistent ailments, especially near fingers and toes already prone to poor circulation. A manicure and pedicure can restore your skin’s vibrancy due to its exfoliating and moisturizing effects. This will no doubt be a welcome benefit for those of you who are prone to dry skin and other cutaneous nuisances.
The Marrakech Manicure & Pedicure Comes With a Twist
The manicure and pedicure you receive in Marrakech will largely resemble the procedure you would receive elsewhere. The spa treatments carried here at Farnatchi Spa incorporate nail colour products from Essie, and vary based on the type of gel/polish that’s applied. Whether you choose the regular polish treatment or the long-lasting gel treatment, you can trust that your Marrakech manicure or pedicure will help you de-stress.
A Marrakech Manicure & Pedicure Will Help You Let Loose
Remember, the effects of stress linger in the body and don’t leave until you make an effort to release them. Even a vacation doesn’t automatically free you from the stress of travelling because taking a vacation itself can aggravate feelings of nervousness. You’re only free until you make a conscious effort to unwind.
Fortunately, just the gentle touch that accompanies a manicure and pedicure treatment can lift the tension. We recommend these procedures regardless of whether you are a man or woman because it’s benefits to your emotional health are undeniable!← Back to all posts
