There are endless ways to reduce stress and feel your best, from vacationing at your favorite beach resort, to spending a luxurious day at the spa. In honor of National Stress Awareness Day this November 4th, we interviewed a handful of specialists from our renowned Exhale Spa team to discover their staff picks to best spa-day the stress away in Ocean’s 40,000 square foot award-winning spa and bathhouse. Get inspired by their answers below!

The Question: What Exhale Spa therapy do you recommend to alleviate stress & why? 

Danielle G., Lead Esthetician says: My pick is the Magic Facial.

This facial is Magic. This is about creating ‘inner and outer peace’ which reflects on your face immediately after the facial. We begin with a peel and ultrasonic scrubber to slough off any dead skin. Wonderful extended facial massage and finished off with our light therapy that will transport you to your favorite place. This facial is 80 minutes of pure bliss. 

Katrina Y.,  Lead massage therapist says: Are you tired of sitting around? Do your muscles ache with any exertion? Come in for a Flow Massage to help stretch you out and get your blood moving again, you will be happy you did!

The Flow Massage at Exhale Spa, Atlantic City, consists of a Swedish-based therapy combining the best known therapeutic massage practices to provide an unparalleled hour of relaxation!

Natalie, Esthetician says: The power facial! A great facial for all skin types and those suffering from mask acne right now. This treatment is a combination of a peel and led Cool Bean or Ultrasonic light therapy, depending on your desired result. This combination is a sure way to help acne, dehydrated skin and aged skin (treatment is very relaxing as well).

Michele W., Massage Therapist says: I recommend a sports massage to decrease muscle tension and increase a sense of well-being. No need to be an athlete! The simple treks through the back of the house and throughout your day are taxing on the body. 

Sports massage therapy can help a person manage stress. When a person receives a sports massage, their body releases neurotransmitters called endorphins. Endorphins are released by two centers of the brain known as the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, and they act as the body’s natural pain reliever. 

Many different movements and techniques are used in sports massage. The variety of these techniques accompanied by stretching, warm towels, warm neck pillow, and signature Exhale massage oils such as Lavender, Bergamot, Chamomile, Nutmeg, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Fennel, Cypress, Grapefruit and more decrease muscle tensions and aide in better sleep.
