A Wellness Spa is a spa which specializes in holistic therapies, treatments and services. Usually, it is a smaller and more intimate facility where guests can stay for several days or weeks to regain health and well-being.
The Wellness industry has a strong growth trend, mainly driven by the western population’s increasing focus on health and wellbeing. This has led to the development of a variety of establishments, which provide various services and experiences that help clients live healthy and balanced lifestyles.
Unlike resort spas, a wellness spa is usually focused on promoting a wellness approach with all-inclusive packages. These typically include a range of treatments such as massages, beauty treatments, exercise sessions and classes, yoga and Pilates, and some forms of physical therapy.
Wellness Spas are often oriented toward healing and enhancing health with services such as acupuncture, chiropractic, osteopathy and other forms of medical care. They may also have a medical clinic attached to the facility.
Thermal Baths & Hot Springs
Wellness spas use water for therapeutic purposes, particularly thermal (hydrotherapy) and marine (thalassotherapy) water. These waters are rich in minerals, precious gases and muds that can treat inflammation, cellulite and rheumatism.
