5 Reasons why you should have a Bespoke Spa Hotel Break (even in tough times!)

When things get tricky, visiting a Spa Hotel  can appear an extra, inessential splurge.  How to convince others that you simply must have a Bespoke Spa Hotel break? It’s simple, once you realise the correlation between health and success.

Five benefits of going to a Bespoke Spa Hotel (in this case, for a massage):

1) It reduces stress hormone levels:
Several studies have shown that a massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which among many other benefits helps slow your heart rate, and brings your blood pressure down.

2) It boosts your immunity:
By reducing stress and stress hormones, massages boost the levels of “natural killer cells” in your body, which are your first defence against invaders.  Massages have even been shown to boost immunity in people with severely decreased immune systems, such as patients with breast cancer.

3) It’s a great pain reliever:
Whether you’ve got muscular pain, chronic headaches or migraines, massages have been shown to significantly decrease and relieve pain. A one hour massage (and three hour visit to the spa, with a lot of that time spent relaxing in the whirlpool), can cure headaches completely!

4) It boosts your mood:
As if a wonderful, healing, relaxing visit to a Bespoke Spa Hotel wasn’t enough, treatments such as massages increase your brain’s level of feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin.

5) It relieves PMS symptoms!
A small study of a group of women with severe PMS found that massages reduced a variety of symptoms such as pain, water retention, and mood swings.  Now there’s some ammunition that might seriously convince your husband or partner of the necessity of a visit to a Bespoke Spa Hotel! Imagine how much happier a place this world would be, if all women were treated to a Bespoke Spa Hotel on a monthly basis!?

Now, I know I’ve been talking mostly about the benefits of massages, but just think about it… A pedicure usually comes with a brief massage, as does a facial, and even some manicures come with mini hand and arm massages.

Where do I go for my Bespoke Spa Hotel Break

Bespoke Hotels currently offers 16 properties that can provide a Bespoke Spa Hotel break.  From The Carnoustie Golf Hotel in Scotland to The Lugger in Conwall, you’ll find Bespoke Spa Hotels all across the country, including the award-winning Cotswold House Spa (winner of LateRooms’ Spa of the Year 2013). Each offers a variety of treatments for men as well as women, along with facilities ranging from swimming pools to jacuzzis, steam-rooms, saunas, fitness centres, and treatment rooms.

So why not take a look here and work out where you’d like to have your next Bespoke Spa  Hotel break. With Christmas fast approaching why not offer your loved one a Bespoke Betoken, the ideal gift to put towards that desired Bespoke Spa Hotel break.

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start warming those credit cards and preparing to do some serious shopping! Picking out the perfect gift is a challenge at the best of times, let alone when fighting your way through the swarms of fellow shoppers seeking to tie up the latest gadget for their loved ones.

If you’re seeking gift ideas for your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, mother, father, sister or brother why not give them something they can use with anyone, at any time – a Bespoke Hotels Christmas Gift Voucher or, as we like to say, a Betoken.

 

All over the world, families and friends give presents to each other at Christmas. Most children around the world believe in a magical Christmas gift bringer, most often St. Nicholas, Santa Claus or Father Christmas. However, there are numerous incarnations, such the Christkind in Germany, the Wise Men in Spain, and even Befana, the benevolent old lady, in Italy.

In most of Europe, the presents delivered by these kindly souls are left in shoes or boots put out by the children of the house. In Italy, the UK and the USA presents are left in stockings often hung beside the fire place. In many countries, however, presents for friends and family may be left under the Christmas Tree. In Britain, they are usually opened on Christmas morning with the whole family gathered together. In this context, a Bespoke Hotel Gift Voucher is easy to hide in the stocking and provide the perfect solution for the family member who wants to unwind and enjoy some R&R following the busy festive season.

What, Where and When?

So what exactly can a Bespoke Hotels Betoken be exchanged for?  The answers simple… Pretty much anything on offer at Bespoke Hotels!  It could be afternoon tea, Sunday lunch, a meal out together, or even a romantic weekend away. And that’s not forgetting Spa treatments  or Rounds of Golf at Bespoke Hotels that have such facilities.

Bespoke Hotels Gift Vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, so you’ll have all of next year to cash in your present and treat yourself to a slice of Bespoke luxury.
