Hotels with Spa and Relaxation FacilitiesYou can choose to take a spa break at hotels, where you will be able to relax and unwind while you are a guest. Typical spa treatments include:
AromatherapyAromatherapy uses essential plant oils and extracts such as flowers, resin, wood or herbs, to relieve stress and anxiety. It is often inhaled, massaged into the skin or placed in baths.
FacialsThis is a skin treatment that involves stimulating the skin and cleansing, toning, exfoliating then applying a mask to draw out dirt and impurities. It can sometimes involve hair removal. The skin is then moisturised, and the result leaves unclogged and rejuvenated pores with no dead skin cells.
SaunaSaunas have been used since before ancient Rome times, and are an excellent way of opening up pores to remove impurities. They are also beneficial for the blood and circulation, and involve being surrounded by warm steam in an enclosed space. For best results, saunas should be followed by a swim or bath in cold water.
Exercise poolsWater pools can sometimes have minerals in them that help the body, but they are usually heated and have jets of water to massage muscles, and are used for both exercise and relaxation, as well as muscle therapy.
Body wrapsBody wraps literally mean applying essential oils like coconut and seaweed, or other products like mud, to the skin, and covering it with air-permeable sheets, blankets or linens. Heat penetrates the wrappings and draws out dirt but the treatment is also good for firming, toning, relaxing muscles and revitalising the whole body.
Manicure and pedicuresManicures are for the hands, while pedicures are for the feet. They involve cleaning, filing, polishing and buffing the nails, then moisturising the hand/foot and giving the nails a coat of varnish to make them healthy and well-groomed. They may also include hand or foot massages.
Deep tissue cleansingHomotoxicology is based on homeopathy and is a natural treatment with anti-ageing benefits to remove toxins and cleanse bodily fluids.
Full body massagesPressure is applied to areas of the body by stimulating muscles, to ease tension and pain. A full body massage means affecting all the muscles of the body that the client is comfortable with, but there are many different techniques of massage therapy, and areas that can be covered.
Hot stone treatmentHot stone treatment, or thermotherapy, is often used with deep tissue massage and involves easing the body's tension by applying warm mineral stones (usually basalt) to the muscles.
Holistic treatmentsHolistic practices cover a range of medicines and therapies to improve the whole body's wellbeing, such as Ayurvedic medicines, acupuncture, herbal medicines, Reiki, Craniosacral therapy, Homeopathy and Osteopathy.
Plus, there are many more additional treatments for body and mind.
