The International Spa Association defines Spa as- “a place devoted to enhancing overall well-being through a variety of professional services that encourage the renewal of mind, body, and spirit.” And I can’t agree more.
One of the majorly misunderstood things about Spas is that all the therapies are the same, that is not true. Be it quality, cost, or the type of treatment, every Spa has a prominent difference among each other. And owing to these differences, the impact and effects are also different. In case you are not properly aware of the differences, it can be quite tantalizing and confusing at the same time to distinguish the Spas.

Regardless of the type of Spa you visit, the motto is that you would feel refreshed, rejuvenated and more relaxed after your session. But undoubtedly a specific type of a Spa serves a valuable purpose or in meeting a specific goal and thereby your visit can prove to be quite a worthwhile experience. Hence, from a range of ayurvedic therapies to various energizing detox programs, indulge in the most amazing Spa experiences in the world and pamper yourself to the core. But how will you get to know that which one is best for you out of so many Spa types?
