As we begin to transition into cooler autumn temperatures, it is common for many people to have low energy and mood swings.  Less sunshine and a decrease in Vitamin D exposure each day is usually a cause of general body fatigue.

There are a number of ways to fight this change in our body: get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods and drink lots of water. Another method many people overlook is boosting your general well-being with a trip to the spa. The relaxing atmosphere and various  treatments offered at the Inova MedSpa can lift your mood and give your body the nourishment, attention, and the solitude it deserves during this tricky season.

Not only are treatments like massages and facials beneficial, but the use of the steam room or sauna can have a huge impact on your health as well. It can relax the body, and if you are feeling slightly under the weather, a steam or sauna session may help to relieve your sinuses. Be sure to inquire if your service provides access to these amenities when booking an appointment.

Aromatherapy can also be beneficial to our bodies. Take advantage of any essential oils offered like eucalyptus, peppermint, and tea tree oil during a treatment. These can help relieve sinuses and provide an excellent aroma. Lavender and rose oils are often used in facials to combat acne or calm inflammation while other oils focus on relaxing the body, reducing pain and soothing skin conditions.

As the Autumn rolls in, use these tips to help prevent seasonal blues and put a pep in your step!
