Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health issues in the United States, affecting 40 million adults every year. It’s no surprise considering global events of the last couple of years and the demands of everyday life.
While nothing can replace the care of physicians and mental health professionals, Korean spas can provide a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation, an escape from pressures of work and adult responsibilities, and for many, a space to relieve anxiety symptoms.
4 ways a day at a Korean spa can help relieve anxiety symptoms:
- Wash Your Worries Away
Dating back to various ancient civilizations, hydrotherapy uses water pressure and temperature to relieve a wide range of symptoms. Warm baths and hot tubs with gentle jets can help relax your muscles and reduce tension. Meanwhile, research shows that cold baths (or showers) actually have the greatest benefits for relieving the symptoms of anxiety. Our gender-separated bath areas each have five pools of varying temperatures which provide the perfect environment for a hydrotherapy session.
- Chill Out – Literally
If the bath areas aren’t for you, you can achieve the same benefits in our coldest room. The Arctic Room is the perfect way to get the same anxiety-reducing benefits of “cold therapy” while staying dry.
- Catch Up On Those Z’s
While anxiety can cause sleep disturbances, studies show that sleep deprivation can also significantly intensify anxiety symptoms. Rather than worry about which came first, you can take advantage of our soothing napping areas to catch up on some much-needed slumber.
- Take some “Me” Time
Anxiety attacks are often triggered by mental overstimulation or sensory overload, so simply setting aside a few hours of quiet time to yourself with no demands and no one to answer to can do wonders for your mental health. For parents, that’s often easier said than done. That’s why Spa World has a spacious indoor playground where children six years of age and up can play under the supervision of our staff while parents enjoy our spa amenities.
At Spa World, we pride ourselves in providing a space where guests can reclaim their time and re-charge while taking advantage of the many holistic healing benefits of traditional Korean medicine. From reducing muscle tension to catching up on sleep to simply spending a relaxing day with loved ones, we offer the perfect environment for relieving the unpleasant symptoms of anxiety.
Our admission tickets, which can be easily purchased online, give you access to our bath areas, arctic room, and napping areas, along with several other sauna and therapy rooms. Why not try it out for yourself?
