As the New Year approaches, many of us will want to focus on feeling the best we can, physically and mentally. Wellness trends for 2024 include proactive body care treatments that enhance immunity, energy, and mood.

Digital Health Monitoring

As you start the New Year with a plan to improve your health, tracking your progress is a great way to stay on course. Many digital tools have emerged to record your health journey, whether you are managing a health condition or simply want to monitor your goals. With the advent of smartwatches, you can track your steps, your heart rate, calories burned, your blood oxygen level, and more. You can send these results to your doctor or simply keep a record on your smart phone. The smartwatch will remind you to take a break, as it will nudge you to stand up every hour and move around. During the night, it can record and give insight into the quality of your sleep.

Several body care treatments such as Salt Therapy, Far Infrared Sauna, various kinds of massages, and stretching can greatly improve your health and sense of wellbeing as you move into the New Year.

Halotherapy, AKA Salt Therapy, for centuries has been proven as a complimentary treatment for asthma, bronchitis, cough, allergy, and skin conditions.

Salt has natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antihistamine properties so it is effective in detoxifying the body, strengthening the immune system, and relieving the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Because it creates a negative ion environment, it can lift mood, strengthen the immune system, and encourage a state of recovery and general wellness beneficial for everyone. It’s an effective therapy with no known side effects.

The Valley of Vitality offers salt therapy in a sterile environment. The setting is serene and calm, to help clients relax and get the most out of their sessions both physically and mentally.

Far Infrared Sauna

Far Infrared sauna uses infrared light to heat the body while the surrounding air stays unchanged. The result is that the body’s core temperature rises without having to sit in a room with an extremely high ambient temperature, so many people may find it more comfortable than a traditional sauna. The lamps in infrared saunas focus a penetrating warmth directly on the skin to bring heat-therapy benefits.

Some of the benefits of Far Infrared Therapy include improved skin tone, weight loss, improved cardiovascular function, wound healing, lung health, pain management, and better sleep.

A Valley of Vitality has two medical grade infrared saunas for use by clients. By incorporating infrared therapy sessions when you’re feeling healthy, you can give your immune system the extra boost it needs to stay strong and in full virus-fighting mode during the winter sickness season. The relaxing heat means less pain and better sleep, improving overall health and quality of life.

Massage therapy

Regular massage is a great way to release the muscle tension that can cause so many health problems. It can help to alleviate headaches caused by stress, increase flexibility, improve skin tone, relieve pain and help recovery of soft tissue injuries. Massage therapy can assist with better sleep, lift mood, and is beneficial in treating anxiety and depression.

Massage therapy can play an important role in pain management, which also affects mobility, mood and sleep. Regular massage therapy also boosts the immune system by increasing circulation and the level of the body’s natural virus fighting cells.

A Valley of Vitality offers a full menu of massage treatments to fit your health and wellness needs.

Stretching

You may think of stretching as something performed only by runners or gymnasts prior to a workout. But we all need to stretch in order to protect mobility and independence, and maintain range of motion. Injuries can cause us to compensate in the way we move, further shortening muscles and limiting movement, sometimes causing further injury. Stretching of your upper and lower extremities through a daily program can help to keep you flexible, injury free and active in the New Year.

A Valley of Vitality offers assisted stretching therapy, in which a practitioner leads the client through a series of assisted stretches, ensuring the proper range of motion that your body needs to heal. This is a wonderful way to improve joint health and increase flexibility that includes fascia release therapy. This treatment releases pressure from fascia that has become thickened and shortened from injury, trauma and inflammation. Stretching therapy can help you know where your body needs to be released and start you on your way to a regular program.
