Are You Ready to Relax?

October 28, 2016

Are You Ready to Relax?
 
You’ve snagged the home of your dreams, unpacked your mountain of boxes, and settled into your new house. Once the stressful parts of moving are behind you, it is finally time to treat yourself to some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
 
Thankfully, Tucson is absolutely brimming with places that are designed to help you relax and unwind after a long, taxing move.
 
Whether you are interested in getting back to nature, flexing your mental skills, getting some physical activity, or treating yourself to a well-earned full body treatment to calm your tense muscles, there are countless places that you can visit to destress and recharge.
 

Spa Day Calling

People come to Tucson from all around the world to take advantage of our spectacular day and full-service spas that will take you on a blissful week-long retreat until you feel completely and totally at ease.
 
Spa packages vary from location to location, but most spas specialize in relaxation and rejuvenation. Most notably, spas employ master massage therapists who use the power of touch to heal you by relaxing tense neck, shoulder, and back muscles, increasing oxygen circulation throughout your body, and reducing the hormone cortisol which your brain produces as a response to stress.
 
Hot stone treatments, aromatherapy, skin rejuvenation, reiki massage, and steaming hot saunas are all amazing ways to turn off your brain and allow you to pamper yourself and focus your energies on healing and destressing from the inside out.
 

Get Back to Nature

There are few things more relaxing than just getting out of the house and taking a long, enlivening walk or nature hike.
 
With mountains surrounding Tucson, and Saguaro National Park in arms’ reach, getting back to nature in Tucson is truly as easy as walking out your front door and breathing in all of that clean, desert air. With the autumn air giving us perfect weather all day and crisp gorgeous weather all night long.
 
There are hundreds of hiking, biking, and walking paths throughout Tucson, but the truly adventurous who need to get away from it all will love to hike to the mountain tops and take in the beauty of this stunning landscape.
 

Hair and There

Can you think of anything more relaxing than having someone run their fingers through your hair as they treat you to one of life’s most exquisite and luxuriant experiences, the wash and dry haircut?
 
If you have recently moved to a new home, going out and exploring your area’s local merchants should include a wash and trim at your neighborhood’s most recommended hair salon or barber to treat yourself to some pampering.
 

On Pins and Needles

Acupuncture therapies have been around for hundreds of years, and there are a lot of fantastic ways that acupuncture can help reorder your mind and muscles after a move. Moving to a new home brings a lot of emotional and physical stress on your body and mind, but acupuncture focuses on the kind of self-care that is necessary to begin all-over healing.
 
Those who undergo acupuncture treatments for stress report immediate post-treatment mood elevation, pain relief, and calm energy.
 

Feed Your Brain Some Culture

Tucson is one of the most culturally inclusive, artistic communities anywhere in the United States. Planning a fantastic night out and taking in some professional theater, ballet performance, or a classical music concert is a wonderful way to revive a tired and stressed mind.
 
Ballet Tucson is Southern Arizona’s premier ballet company, and their 2016- 2017 performance schedule is packed with fantastic pieces and original concept pieces. The Tucson Symphony Orchestra has been a Tucson staple since 1929, and they have long been lauded for their masterpiece performances and orchestral pieces. Broadway in Tucson brings all of the classic touring Broadway shows right here at the University of Arizona campus for year-round shows including legendary shows like Chicago, Phantom of the Opera, and Wicked.
