Relax for the holidays and relieve stress
By Tracy Dye
Part two of our holiday haven series offers ways for you to relax and relieve stress at Haven on the Lake. Below, find a couple of great, simple ways to lower your stress levels.
Book a spa service
Spa services at Haven are provided by The Still Point. The spa includes a full menu of services, including facials, manicure/pedicure, massage therapy, body wraps and more.
“Everyone at The Still Point is top-notch,” said Gates. “I see people coming in every week to get pampered and they leaving looking completely renewed. I treated my friend to a massage and she absolutely loved it.”
Gates also has high praise for the acupuncture treatments provided at The Still Point. Last winter, she booked an appointment for acupuncture after suffering from tinnitus, which is characterized by a persistent ringing in the ears.
“After five months of treatments, my symptoms were gone,” she said.
Unwind in Haven’s healing environments
A hot tub, steam bath, sauna, crystal salt therapy room and tropical rain shower are just a few of the amenities that comprise Haven’s healing environments.
For those brave enough to turn down the heat, Heath recommends the Cold Plunge — a small pool kept at 55 degrees and intended to expedite muscle recovery.
“It’s a must after a vigorous workout,” she said.
Gates said that the combination of yoga and a dip in the hot tub are a perfect time out from the bustle of everyday life.
“When I leave Haven, it’s so much easier to take on different tasks,” she said. “I’ve learned that taking time for yourself is essential.”
