The Benefits of a Massage

spas in Malta - relaxing massage

The relation between physical and mental wellbeing has a great impact on the quality and length of life and on the society as a whole. Mental wellbeing supports good physical health and vice versa. Therefore it is important that we pay equal attention to not only how we look, but also to how we really feel on the inside. Having a busy work and personal schedule, hurrying from one place to another, getting stuck in a traffic jam, multitasking ….the list goes on and on. Over time society adjusted to this lifestyle and therefore we tend to forget the negative effects this can leave on the body and mind. Stop for a second and rewind your daily routine. What does your morning look like? Are you one of those people who get ready in a few minutes before rushing out of the door to a busy work schedule full of deadlines and meetings whilst holding onto your favourite reusable coffee cup? Do you manage to fit in a short work-out before or after work? Do you even make time for a healthy breakfast before embarking on your a day? As a result, such a lifestyle can eventually lead to cardiovascular disease, obesity, anxiety, built up tension, stroke and many other complications. It is very important that we take a break for ourselves and every once in a while, truly enjoy our free time whilst contributing to our over all health and health-being.

There are several massage techniques one can choose from, which are suitable for the individuals needs. Massage can benefit everyone who is looking for quality time to relax and appreciate their body. According to experts, having a massage at least once a month is highly beneficial. Massage is a great tool with many benefits. There are several benefits to receiving regular massages, including:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved ability to control stress levels
  • Improved sleep
  • Positive impact on mood swings
  • Helps expand blood vessels and therefore the supply of healthy nutrients to our body
  • Improves the heart blood supply and as a result the circulation of blood to extremities
  • Clears body of toxins
  • Helps prevent adhesion
  • Stretches connective tissues around the mussels
  • Helps minimise stiffness or swelling
  • Stimulates and calms the nervous system
  • Can also have a positive impact on weight reduction
  • Regular massages can also have a positive impact on weight reductions

My favourite spot in Malta

Excelsior Hotel Malta Views

From its position on Malta’s most breathtaking waterfront, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta is a truly memorable property, both in terms of the beautiful setting and the luxuriousness of the hotel itself. A few minutes walk from the centre of Malta’s capital city, Valletta, the hotel manages to be both a relaxed beach resort and a city centre hotel within easy reach of a picturesque 16th century walled town filled with priceless architecture, culture and art. It is the ideal blend for those who are looking to experience the very best that this part of the island has to offer.

Ideal Location – near Valletta

The superior 5 star hotel in Malta is perfect for exploring Valletta (designated the European Capital city of culture 2018), from taking in the sights and sounds of the traditional markets, to attractions like the National Museum of Fine Arts, the Malta Experience and the St. John’s Co-Cathedral and St. John’s Museum, which are only a short walk away. Many of Malta’s most historic spots including the Grand Master’s Palace and the Fort St. Elmo are equally as accessible and the hotel affords stunning views out over Marsamxett Harbour and Manoel Island, as well as being ideally located for exploring the rest of the island.

Superior rooms for your holiday

The carefully designed rooms in the hotel blend the classic and contemporary, incorporating uncompromising five-star features with all the modern convenience that you would expect from such a luxe establishment. The views are particularly breathtaking – The Deluxe Partial Sea View Rooms offer 90-degree views of Marsamxett Harbour and Manoel Island and for an especially spectacular vista, the views from the Deluxe Seafront Rooms extend an impressive 180 degrees.

5 star facilities and service

The hotel itself is a VIP experience from start to finish and, as a result, has hosted everyone from royalty to international celebrities within its walls. The broad range of facilities cements this status–here you will find everything from a private sandy beach to award winning chefs producing mouthwatering dishes at the hotel’s numerous dining establishments, such as the Tiki Bar & Restaurant and the Spice Island Restaurant. Le Grand Spa is an onsite haven of pampering – the exclusive Thai Maharlika treatment is particularly worth trying – and there are large indoor and outdoor pools within the grounds, a private 30-berth marina and a number of sophisticated bars in which to enjoy a cool sunset drink whilst enjoying the spectacular views from the elegant hotel grounds.
