introduction to

       spa therapy

Many people look upon a Spa as a concept combining, leisure, health, beauty and relaxation. Because of this the word spa is often used inappropriately to describe many establishments in the health, leisure and relaxation industry, these may include the hotel with a swimming pool or a small salon with a jacuzzi. Whilst they may provide excellent treatment and service they are not a true spa which uses natural resources and provides longer lasting health benefits.

Our clients are becoming far more health conscious and aware of the many therapeutic treatments available to counteract the stress of modern day living. The industry is responding to their needs by introducing more spa destinations and treatments. Water is the basis of spa treatment and in addition to the water therapies available salons and spas are introducing beneficial treatments using derivatives from the sea and other sources of thermal or mineral waters in addition to the popular heat treatments using sauna and steam baths.
