Kathmandu: Spa Package with Massage and Facial

1. Kathmandu: Spa Package with Massage and Facial

Treat yourself to a visit to the spa which is a fantastic way to relax and de-stress, offering a great opportunity to separate yourself from life’s everyday stressors and have some precious ‘me time’. Let your body unwind with a 1.5-hour body massage and 30-minute facial.   Facials are known to help delay and prevent the onset of wrinkles by stimulating skin cells and hydrating the skin. Additionally, generally giving yourself time to relax and de-stress is a great anti-aging technique in itself.  General aches and pains are a common occurrence for many, with exercise, sleeping on an unsupported mattress, and sitting for long periods of time at a desk all contributing to them. A great way of relieving these aches is via a relaxing massage, either full body or one that focuses on your problem areas, which helps to fully relax the muscle and tissue. Massage can also help to improve your blood circulation and regulate your blood pressure if you have them regularly
