SPA & Wellness
The term spa is associated with water treatment which is also known as balneotherapy. It sometimes understood to be an acronym that stands fro the Latin 'Sanus Per Aquam', means 'health through water'. Another theory says that the word comes from the Belgian town called Spa, which was famed for its healing mineral waters. The 20th-21st century century spa, however,is associated far more with massages & aromatherapies than natural waters. But every renowned spa keeps its watery link to tradition by offering a combination of Sauna,steam, shower, Jacuzzi etc. Spa towns or spa resorts (including hot springs resorts) typically offer various health treatments. The belief in the curative powers of mineral waters goes back to prehistoric times. Such practices have been popular worldwide, but are especially widespread in Europe and Japan. Day spas are also quite popular, and offer various personal care treatments.
