Your Journey to Wellness

starts with a cup of Ginger Tea

“Everything good is found in Ginger”

The Indian proverb states “everything good is found in Ginger” that’s why at Diva Lounge Spa we chose Ginger Tea to be our signature beverage and the start of your journey to wellness.

As you step into our spas, you are immediately greeted with a cup of Ginger Tea that brings with it a host of health benefits.  One can easily recognise the distinctive aroma of the ginger and its spicy taste blended perfectly with honey. Over the years this has become our clients’ favourite treat, a ritual which perfectly works before, during or after any spa treatment. It is stimulating yet refreshing for the body. It subtly wakens up your senses, making you conscious of your body’s needs and feelings at that moment. This powerful effect is the reason why we gladly serve ginger tea to our clients.

So, what are the health benefits of Ginger Tea?

For many years in most parts of the world, ginger has been used for its therapeutic and preventative effects for the treatment of hundreds of ailments from colds to cramps. Blended well together, honey is an excellent medium for transmitting the benefits of the ginger root into the body. Let us look at some of the benefits your body receives when you enjoy our signature beverage treat.

Blood Pressure: The moderating effects of honey and ginger tonic assist in easing the tension in blood vessels, resulting in lowering blood pressure and reducing the chances of heart attacks and strokes. After a cup of ginger tea one will feel more relaxed and stress levels are lowered.

Aids in weight loss: Now this one is a favourite for many of us! Ginger can help to speed up metabolism, which leads to burning calories with the end result being weight loss.

Suppresses your appetite: Incorporating ginger tea in your diet will help you to feel fuller for longer. This feeling ultimately decreases your calorie intake as your feelings for hunger are reduced. It also helps to reduce habits such as overeating and binge eating and gives you back full control over your diet throughout the day.

Opens your sinuses: Ginger helps to unclog sinuses and facilitate drainage. This is the reason why ginger tea is so popular especially during periods of the cold “bug”. If you suffer from a cough or runny nose, a cup of ginger tea will relax the respiratory system and provide warmth to your body leaving you feeling fresh. Ginger tea will also improve your breathing during a cold or a fever.

Great relief for pain: Ginger acts as a natural pain reliever. It fights inflammation that causes pains and aches; and it also speeds up muscle recovery, especially after a long workout session. It treats inflammation of the joints, helping you get rid of tiredness, swelling and puffiness of sore muscles and joints.

Also for detox: Ginger contributes in cleansing the lymphatic system, killing bacteria found in our bodies and flushing out toxins. It eventually strengthens the body’s immune system making us less prone to catching illnesses and viruses. This powerful preventative measure is the reason why ginger tea is recommended at least once a day.

Best remedy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and stomach discomfort: Ginger has a calming effect on the digestive system as it can relax the intestines during a flare up. It also provides relief if you suffer from cramps, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation. Ginger tea also helps with digestion by minimizing stomach pain and improving food absorption. After a big meal, it is often recommended to drink ginger tea in order to stay comfortable.
