For thousands of years humans have been discovering the benefits of hot natural springs, mud baths and mineral enriched waters on the body.
Water is the main element of the spa concept and hydrotherapy is the key to creating a healthy and relaxing experience.
The warm water found in spas has the ability to increase blood flow around the body to damaged or sore tissues, thus stimulating the recovery process. Hydrotherapy will also aid your recovery after a strenuous work out. Having a long soak in a hot tub will carry away the lactic acid built up in muscles during exercise and can prevent stiffness.
Everybody encounters stress as part of normal life, many people do not realise the effect it has on the body and mind. There is no better way to relieve stress than a massage which you can enjoy in most spas delivered by specially trained masseurs. A massage will help to completely relax the body and stimulate the release of endorphins in the brain making you feel altogether better.
You can enjoy spa holidays all year round but winter is a perfect time to enjoy the benefits of the spa. Massages, body wraps and exfoliation can combine to give our skin that glowing and healthy appearance that the winter weather conditions can hamper.
