A trip to the Spa has always been synonymous with healing and rejuvenation, the Ancient Greeks wrote volumes about the benefits of spa treatments. Whilst the Victorians may have had some ‘innovative’ ideas when it came to the nature of the actual spa treatments, the objective was always to leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and healthier than before.
A trip to the spa is no longer seen as a luxury or something to be reserved for a special treat but part of the need to maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle.
The current culture is searching for that forgotten sense of well-being amidst the technological clutter and demands of the modern working environment.
Where speed was the order of the day with fast food, ready-made meals, par-boiled-par-cooked-pre-chopped immediate gratification, our needs have changed in the light of the glaring health risks associated with processed convenience.
Listening to our bodies and feeding them with organic, whole foods, picking healthy over convenient and taking time out to decompress and relax are all designed to aid our coping skills with today’s demands whilst maintaining good health and increasing our life expectation.
