You Too Can Have Hospital Zen
Maybe it’s the smell of antiseptics or disinfectant in the air but many people have fears of hospitals or clinics. If not, maybe it is the association of hospitals to surgery, death, and sickness that made our brains resistant to the thought of going there. But what if you really need to? Say, you can hardly get your nose or your chin done in your garage right? Here’s a positive thought for you: health and medical spas.
Think about how you would feel getting Botox injections, not with the sound of droning machines, but of water cascading into stone pools. Or how about getting a cleansing facial with the scent of lavender and chamomile rather than alcohol? So much relaxing right? This is what health and medical spas offers. Researches show that people are more receptive to cosmetic treatments and procedures when relaxed. Health and medical benefits are also fully manifested when the body is in its relaxed state. These results pushed forward the development of health and medical spas. These spas are simply cosmetic surgery clinics whose interiors and services are patterned after the day spas of Europe. Availing of foot spa services are just as easy getting a nose job. In short, medical cosmetic services (think Botox, cellulite reduction, liposuction, etc.) and health spa services (foots spas, hair spas, facials, massages, aromatherapy) can all be availed in one place.
Health and medical spas differ in type. There are spas owned by private individuals or even big beauty companies. Hospitals can also have their own spas. Doctor-owned spas are usually the most recommended because they have surgical facilities affiliation. However, don’t worry if your regular health and medical spa is not doctor-owned. It is ruled that a medical practitioner should be on the spa’s premises all the time. Also, most of these spas have affiliate cosmetic and plastic surgeons, licensed aestheticians, and dermatologists. In addition, some health and medical spas provide their own salon. Now, isn’t it great to get an over-all beauty make-over in a single place?
In conclusion, the advantages of a health and medical spas are great. First, with trained personnel, you can expect the hospital-quality procedures. Secondly, with the relaxing atmosphere you could get all the service and pampering of your regular health spa. Third, you could even get personalized body care systems. The only disadvantage I see is the damage you could do to your credit card. After all, it’s hard to resist pampering and quality service under the same roof.
