Don’t Sleep Longer: Sleep Smarter

These days, most of us feel like we’re not getting enough sleep. To some extent, this is true: more than one-third of us don’t get enough sleep every night, but it isn’t just about the amount of time you spend in bed; it’s about getting to sleep, staying asleep, and getting good sleep.

This is how NuCalm can really help you enjoy a good night’s rest.

Fall Asleep Faster

Many people have trouble getting to sleep right away. There are too many distractions to let your brain shut down and enter its process for falling asleep. NuCalm can really help with this.

Using NuCalm helps you put aside the things that are bothering you and get some distance from them. You enter a calm state and stop obsessing about the things on your mind. It lets you focus on getting rest when it’s time to rest, which then makes you readier to work when it’s time to work.

Get Better Sleep

Spending lots of time trying to fall asleep when you can’t or staying awake when your body wants to fall asleep can create a situation where your body has a hard time either staying awake or falling asleep. Its ability to read and respond to environmental and behavioral clues is hampered, which makes it hard for you to get quality sleep.

NuCalm can help with this by “grooming” the body’s systems so it can function as it is supposed to. This makes it more possible for you to fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper, more restorative sleep than before.

Deeper Dreams

NuCalm helps your brain enter and stay at the proper brainwave frequencies for dreaming. By falling asleep faster and staying asleep better, you’ll also spend more time in the Restless Eye Movement (REM) state. This means that you can experience more detailed dreams. Many users of NuCalm report vivid dreams and sharper memories when they’re using the system.

The benefits of this aren’t just for sleep–you will likely see better creativity and more inspiration after you start using NuCalm.

When You Need to Rest but Have No Time

In addition to helping you sleep well at night, NuCalm is an amazing system because it gives you the ultimate ability to “power nap.” If you find your energy is flagging but your schedule is still full, you don’t have to set aside hours to restore your energy. Instead, just 30 minutes of NuCalm is the equivalent of up to two hours of restful sleep.

That’s because NuCalm puts you in the state of restorative sleep, which your body naturally transitions through repeatedly at night. By spending more time in this restorative type of sleep, you get more of your energy back and feel remarkably well rested for such a short period of time.

There’s Only So Many Hours in a Day–Use Them Right

If you keep feeling tired all the time, you might think you need to spend more time in bed. This creates a problem, especially if your schedule does not provide time for those extra hours in bed.

Maybe you don’t have to find more time for sleep–maybe you need better sleep. With NuCalm, better sleep is just 30 minutes away.

What is Localized Cryotherapy?

THE COLD RUSH

Cryotherapy, which literally means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. The exposed skin reacts to the extreme temperature by sending messages to the brain that stimulate natural regulatory functions of the body.  The blood vessels constrict, immediately decreasing inflammation and swelling in the affected area by rapidly flushing the tissue of fluid and waste.

COLD SCHOOL

Many people wonder why not just use an ice pack, what’s the difference? There are several benefits with local cryo that you just can’t get with ice.

  • Local cryo allows the skin to get to a consistent, therapeutic temperature without the use of moisture so there is NO pain.
  • Icing is not cold enough or fast enough to create vasodilatation, and the brain feels the slow freezing effect of the ice then wants to send blood to the area to warm it up. This warming attempt can slow the inflammatory process and also slows the removal of lactic acid in the tissue which is the cause of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
  • With ice there is no way to sustain a constant, beneficial temperature.

Another benefit of local cryo over icing is once the cryo process is complete you can move and engage the area immediately whereas icing leaves you numb and stiff until the treated area warms up.

3 Benefits to Getting a Massage

Massage Therapy

Massage is no longer available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in clinics, hospitals and even airports.

If you’ve never tried massage, learn about its possible health benefits and what to expect during a massage therapy session. Massage therapy is much more than a mere luxury or an extravagance. Rather, it is an investment into yourself. Listed below are 3 reasons why you should look into getting a massage, but there are others, ranging from specific medical issues to sports and weightlifting.

  1. Counteracts all the sitting. People who sit throughout the day, such as most office workers, need to be especially cognizant of the damage to their bodies all the sitting is accumulating. Office jobs affect more than just our posture, for instance if you spend most of your days on a keyboard, your forearms especially could probably benefit from a massage. More advanced forms of stress may show up as pain or weakness in the low back and gluteals caused by prolonged periods of sitting. Luckily, massage therapy can counteract the imbalance caused from sitting, which means you can keep your desk job as long as you want, just schedule a massage every now and then.

  1. Sleep. No more lying awake, trying in vain to fall asleep. Massages are known to reduce blood pressure and increase sleepiness. Most people, in fact, fall asleep during the massage (depending heavily on the type of massage) which enhances the effect of feeling rested and refreshed at the end of your massage.

  1. Mood Boost. Is the weather outside bringing down your mood? Are you having a rough week? Then you need a massage! There have been studies on massage therapy that concluded that, on average, massage increases your levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter linked to happiness by 28 percent. This is a boost that should help you either recover from a day that was less than optimal or to prepare for one.

Massage therapy is something that is both good for you and fun to do. There are not many things that can check both boxes. In Fayetteville, The Renaissance European Day Spa’s professional massage therapists offer a range of packages and treatments designed to fit any situation.

5 Reasons to visit your local spa!

Renaissance Day Spa and Alternative Wellness

Going to a spa may seem like a gratuitous luxury, but in our stress-filled lives, going to a spa is not an extravagance but a necessity! Having doubts? Here are 5 reasons why indulging in a spa experience is worth the time and money spent!

  1.       De-stress: A big advantage that you receive from visiting a spa is a break from your daily boring routine or stressful lifestyle. Are you aware of the detrimental effects like cardiovascular problems, skin irritations, unnecessary weight gains, chronic diseases, etc. caused by stress? Stress is something that cannot be avoided in our day to day life, but a trip to the spa can help you relax and decompress. Every type of treatment or service, including massage and bodywork, can help you to relieve stress.

  1.       Detox: The pollution we face on daily basis coupled with our eating habits, results in the accumulation of toxins in our bodies. Some massages and facials by themselves will help break down the toxins in your body so drink plenty of water to flush them out of your system. Detoxification is something that will have a definite impact on your life, making you feel energized and rejuvenated.

  1.       Spend time with your loved ones: Spas allow you to spend some quality time with the people most important in your life. Most spas offer private couple rooms and dual massages so you can have a relaxing experience together. Try it with your significant other and enjoy relaxing together.

  1.       Anti-aging: Taking care of your skin helps ward off the aging process. Certain essential oils, like lavender oil, even have anti-aging properties. Regular use of these oils helps in keeping your skin looking young and taut. Whether it’s working to reduce visible signs of aging, battling acne scars, fighting damage from skin exposure, or simply exfoliating, skin treatments can leave your skin looking bright, clear, and healthy.

  1.       Pamper Yourself: Sometimes it can be difficult to take the time for yourself at home. Designated time at a spa means you will get your beauty needs taken care of thoroughly and without having to lift a finger yourself. You will look beautiful, rested and radiant just by showing up!

You can never run out of reasons to go to the spa, rough day at work, traffic jams, long lines at the grocery, whatever the scenario, just head to the spa, and leave your worries at the door. A trip to the spa is all about making you look and feel great, get healthier and relax! To book your own unique, personalized spa experience contact the professionals at Renaissance European Day Spa. We are dedicated to serving the people of Fayetteville and North Carolina and ensuring you have the ultimate spa service.

Sick Of Your Dull And Dry Skin? A Facial Might Be Your Saving Grace

Facial
You may love the pampering and relaxation that comes from getting a facial, but it also comes with some serious health benefits for your skin. Women of all ages claim this beauty tactic makes their skin look younger and less dull.

So what causes facials to give your face this enviable glow? Mainly the cleansing, increased circulation, and lowering your stress levels. There are specific facials that may weigh heavily on one of these benefits over the others. For example, the Anti-Free Radical facial that we offer at Renaissance Day Spa is an ultra-hydrating facial meant to combat dry skin. This facial will help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers and increase the flow of oxygen enriched blood to the skin cells. This rush of blood to the skin gives you that healthy glow and plumps skin cells with nutrients such as vitamins A, E and D, which helps to fight free radicals that cause premature aging and dry skin.

With summer almost in full swing, this may also mean the inevitable sunburn that ensues from the long beach days and summer barbeques. If this is the case, then the Plantomen Lift Off facial might be exactly what you need. This facial specifically calms and soothes irritated and sunburned skin. This facial uses Propolis, which is a natural extract from beehives, that offers an antibacterial effect aiding in reducing redness.

If you’re looking for a well-rounded facial to do a little bit of everything, then we’d highly recommend the Herbal Indulgence facial. This facial is perfect for all skin types. With customized blends of natural herbs such as chamomile, lavender, lemongrass and rose combined in a clay mask, this facial will naturally detoxify and moisturize your skin.

Whether you’re just looking to be pampered for a bit or you’re needing to address certain issues, Renaissance Day Spa has a facial that will fit your needs. You’ll be leaving our spa with a healthy, glowing and youthful experience. To schedule your appointment today, call us at 910-484-9922.
