What is a spa?
Spa is a much- needed ‘only me’ time a person takes out for thyself. A good spa helps in relaxing, rejuvenating, reflecting, detoxing and beautifying your mind as well as your body. Spa was foremost derived from a wallon word ‘espa’ means fountain and it means ‘health through water’. The modern spa nowadays is certainly embracing ancient spas. Earlier the spa meant nothing but healing wounds, body aches and stress through hot water baths. Now the spa has taken a complete 360 revolution change in following the customs and the procedures, meanwhile keeping the basic meaning and concept the same that is ‘healing through hot water’.
Psychological benefits of a spa
Yes, a spa affects you psychologically to a great extent.
Spas are generally a quiet and a calm place to visit. When people take time out from their busy schedule and completely leave themselves in such a surrounding of calmness and peace, the mind starts playing the game.
