In the autumn when the days get cooler we often feel that need for wellness: to spend a cosy day (often in the company of friends) at a spa. This is not just about relaxing but averting from routine, work and scheduling. Even if you live on the island, it’s good to take a short break and do something good for the soul. A visit to a spa of high standard should offer more than just an elegant pool area, steam baths and saunas. However, it starts to get trickier when you are looking for a cosmetic treatment by medically-trained specialists.
The Steigenberger Golf and Spa in Camp de Mar has recognised this gap in the market on Mallorca and has invested in highly technical equipment and trained staff to stimulate the regenerative powers of the body. They believe that only if you feel comfortable in your own skin will you radiate positive energy. Surgical face lifts and injections have an immediate effect but everyday stress and polluted air still have a negative effect on us. Therefore, Steigenberger neither injects nor cuts, but focuses on long-term results, by stimulating the body’s own regenerative potential. The individually-designed treatments include state-of-the-art technologies such as diamond microdermabrasion, RDT radial endoderm therapy, heat treatments with CPT radio frequency and cold therapy.
All applications stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin, stimulating cell formation to ensure a healthy and radiant appearance. The treatments range from medical facials to full-body treatments and include relief of chronic muscle tension and traumatic pain. They increase the effectiveness of massages by promoting the blood circulation in muscles and joints. This helps the nutrient and oxygen levels in the muscles to flow, inhibits inflammation and relieves acute and chronic pain. Tesla Stym Magnetic Field Therapy is the equipment used at the Steigenberger Spa with a power of 1.7 Tesla currents. The currents provide electromagnetic inductions that release hardened muscle contractions, penetrating deep into the body.
The basic rule is this: prevention is always best.
So why not take care of yourself, book a golf weekend, counteract the first signs of ageing with a natural facelift or soak in a heated pool? Time is valuable and if you indulge in the luxury of a time-out, then it’s worth using the time sensibly. If you feel you don’t have the time, maybe that’s a sign that you’re in need of a little TLC.
