With the holidays over, we might find ourselves in a slump. For many people, the holidays are one of the handfuls of times per year they get to see their family, they get treated with big, delicious dinners, and get to open up gifts that are theirs alone. Recent studies have shown that nearly 25% of the population gets a case of the post-holiday blues, and it’s easy to see why. After so much wonder and joy, it can be hard to pack it all away for another year and get back to the daily grind.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our many years of business, it’s this -- you can’t rely on a single season to bring you joy. Happiness is a year-round effort, and many of the things that make you happy are immaterial. Our physical and mental health is a massive contributor to our overall well-being, so we must find ways to keep our spirits high year-round. With a membership to Club Kenneth, it’s easy to keep yourself feeling refreshed every single month.
Why Get a Club Kenneth Membership?
In the past, spas were marketed as something for the rich and famous alone. Spas don’t have to be only for people who are obsessed with their image. Scientific studies have shown that regular trips to the spa have multiple health benefits, which might not only help you stay more mentally and physically comfortable but might even prolong your life. Here only five of the most significant potential benefits going to the spa regularly can have on you.
1. Spa trips have been shown to reduce anxiety and depression.
In a 2010 study, groups of people suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) received massage therapy treatment to study whether or not it had an impact on their symptoms. The results of the study indicated that the relaxation elicited from massage therapy did show a reduction in symptoms of anxiety. If you’re someone who suffers from GAD, or someone who faces a lot of stress in their life, investing in regular massage therapy can ease some of your symptoms, improving your quality of life.
2. Massage increases circulation and may decrease inflammation.
A 2014 study examined massage therapy’s ability to help reduce inflammation and soreness in the body. Sedentary adults were asked to do leg presses until the point of muscle soreness. When study participants received Swedish massage therapy directly after their workout, the reported pain lasting for significantly less time than those who did not receive the massage. Additionally, the study concluded that this benefit worked regardless of athletic ability.
3. Spa visits promote a regular, healthy sleep cycle.
Do you have a hard time sleeping? You are not the only one. More than 60 million Americans have insomnia, and melatonin supplements and regular exercise don’t always take care of the issue. Luckily, it’s been shown that frequent trips to the spa can improve your sleep cycle. So, if you want to be more productive at work and spend less money on mid-afternoon espressos, it’s worth it to get to the spa.
4. Spa visits have the possibility of dropping your blood pressure to a healthy rate.
Many Americans struggle with maintaining healthy blood pressure. However, bodywork at the spa can lower both diastolic and systolic blood pressure. This comes as a response to the increased circulation and increased relaxation your body feels when you visit a spa.
5. It’s been shown regular spa visits reduce the chance of getting dementia.
Researchers have tied an increased level of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body to an increased risk of dementia. Luckily, there are ways to lower cortisol levels in the body, and one of those ways is by getting regular bodywork done at a spa.
With all the health benefits in mind, it’s easy to see how a regular visit to the spa is worth the money. Not only does it help keep your stress levels way down, which helps keep you happy year-round, but it provides you overall with a better quality of life.

The face is often the first thing we see on another person, and making sure our skin and face look the best can boost our confidence and ease social anxieties. Our Signature Facial includes professional cleansing, steam treatment, gentle exfoliation, and skin extractions. Facial massage and masks are included after for extended relaxation.
About our Manicure and Express Pedicure
Treat the skin on your hands and feet to a manicure and a pedicure. During your manicure, your nails are shaped and smoothed, then your hands and forearm exfoliated and moisturized. From there, you get a moisture wrap and cuticle treatment, followed by an application of polish in the color of your choice. End it all with a half-hour foot treatment, and you’ll be wondering why you didn’t start monthly mani-pedis before now.
