Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) May 05, 2012 -- Health and 'wellness' is a new phenomenon in the UK tourism market. The understanding and in fact the appreciation of natural treatments, mineral springs and seawater is far less embedded in British culture than the European, Asian and Arab societies.
The health club craze which has taken off a thousand fold in the UK, determined to get their bodies into shape, but has now swung around to a less energetic way to cope with stress-filled lives.
The use of spas now fills the need to assimilate the body, mind and spirit and is now appealing to a younger clientele, whereas years ago candidates for a day spa used to see affluent women using a spa for beauty treatments or to lose weight.
No one knows exactly where the word spa comes from, but there are two theories, one that spa is an acronym for the Latin phrase, 'salus per aquae', or 'health through water'. While others argue the origin of the word 'spa' originally came form the Belgian town of Spa, and has been known since Roman times for its baths. The practice of bathing in hot springs and mineral waters dates back to the Babylonians and Greeks maybe a lot sooner.
Europe's spas were destinations for the wealthy, and in the 19th century people went there to 'take the waters', and still today water treatments are considered the heart of the spa experience all over the world, furthermore America is hooked on massages and facials and is the most popular spa treatments for both men and women.
Spas were popular in Europe before they became very popular in the United States, and many people have come to know the benefits of a visit to a spa, visiting a day spa is a great way to pamper yourself and let your stress melt away, furthermore you can choose one of the many spas London and enjoy the wonderful experience.
The UK is certainly catching up with our European neighbours, where spa days is a way of life, and with successful promotion the UK will very soon become a spa destination, with so much potential, cities and towns across the UK now offering spa breaks for the health conscious, and becoming popular is a day at a spa London.
London plays its part it this ever popular pastime and London spas are some of the most exotic, relaxing complexes offering treatments second to none.
Spas in London are many, and if you are looking for a relaxing day away from all the stresses of modern living then what is on offer is massages, facial and body treatments, manicures and pedicures. There are many treatments to choose from maybe a mud bath, mineral bath and exfoliation or heated stone therapies it is all personal preference.
A spokesman for Dolphin Square spa located in Westminster said "spa breaks London are made special for our clients as we are London's only spa offering the benefits of combined authentic Moroccan Hammam, Rhassoul and salt infused steam room experience".
The representative went on to say "we are fortunate to be able to draw water from the only working Artesian well in the city of Westminster, coming directly from the water table, this makes a significant contribution to spa treatments".
