Q: How the Salon Can Help Reduce Stress

Posted December 24, 2014 in Advice Column, Bondurant


A: Stress can cause both physical and emotional consequences.  But why is it so hard to get rid?  Researchers have found that intense stress actually diminishes the amount of self-control one has, making it hard to deal with stressful situations.  Depression, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity and only a few examples of what you could face if you are someone who is under a great amount of stress. So the question is how do you get a handle on this issue?  Although stress is an emotion your brain needs, there are some helpful ways to relieve your stress at Hypsie.  Every service begins with a touch.  Even a simple handshake can be comforting.  Any hair service we perform comes with a relaxing head massage.  These are great after a long stressful day at work, a few hours away for busy mom, or a guy wanting some away time at the salon.  Pedicures and manicures are the perfect times to relax while you are pampered and massaged.  Using reflexology to pin point specific areas of concern.  Facials are also great stress relievers; using different massage techniques can reduce stress and headaches. Complementary paraffin dips and beverage of your choice will also contribute to your experience of relaxation at Hypsie.
