Article by Ty Hulse A typical feature which runs through nearly every fairy tale is that the characters are one-dimensional archetypes. In other words their personalities are not well filled out.
Whatever you need, or think you need from a spa, you can find it — a new fitness regime, a diet overhaul, stress-busting techniques or just pure indulgent pampering. Most of all we now recognise that spas are no longer places for the wet and weedy, the soft and the spoiled, for they have established themselves as true holiday destinations with a defined purpose, and places where we can invest our time and money in our own health and well-being.
But the good news is that there has never been a better choice of fabulous spas worldwide to educate, entertain and yes, if necessary… pamper us. Most hotels offer a spa and a choice of programmes so guests can make well-being an integral part of their holiday. Spas themselves are aware of this and are constantly reinventing themselves, adding new programmes, researching different therapies, introducing new treatments.
The best of the bunch have been swift to offer mindfulness and tai chi classes, sleep retreats, organic foods, stress-busting therapies and all manner of detox programmes to meet the growing need.
Getting back to nature is also key to alleviating stress and anxiety: Holistic therapies such as reiki, cranial-sacral, tapping and acupuncture have all found a place in wellness holidays, along with the rise in interest in the preventive concepts of traditional Chinese medicine and ayurveda.
For the truly committed, hi-tech spas complete with their own medical units, doctors, physiotherapists, naturopaths and other specialists offer a range of services from blood checks and body scans, vitamin infusions, X-rays and, in some cases, DNA testing.
These help devise individual programmes dealing with weight, stress and mobility issues, while other areas of the spa focus on cosmetic and dental treatments.
It would seem there is a spa for everyone. The rise of such spa holidays will only increase as we continue to live longer and take better care of our physical and mental health — using fewer drugs and opting for more holistic methods.
