Gone are the days where you have to splash out on flights to exotic destinations in order to find some of the world’s best spa holidays. Spa breaks are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, so why not treat yourself to a spa weekend soon? From Cumbria to Warwickshire; from Wales to Dorset to Derbyshire; from Scotland to West Midlands to the Channel Islands, Britain is turning into a spa paradise. You could go on a spa tour of the UK, motor down the countryside, stop at quaint inns and pubs or castles turned hotels if you like, save pots of money and spend it all on exotic spa treatments available in these locations.
It goes without saying that a holiday in the UK will cut out a lot of the costs associated with travelling overseas. But what shouldn’t be forgotten is that on a spa holiday you will not only have a great time, you will also be doing a great deal for your health!
The words holiday and detox do not always go together, but if you go on a spa break you will certainly detox. Detoxing on your break allows your body to get rid of toxins, plus stress and it really does clear your mind. The detox happens because of a healthy diet, detox juices and exercise.
Aches and Pains
If you have any lingering pains or aches then a spa holiday is ideal for you. With the treatments on offer you will be able to target and combat the problems you may have. The alternative therapies can provide another avenue if more traditional methods have not worked. They may include; reflexology, acupuncture and sport massages.
With all of the stresses and worries we face in daily life, getting a good night’s sleep can be tricky. Not only will a spa break leave you feeling more relaxed and help you to sleep, the spa will also provide a range of programmes to aid you. Make sure you call ahead to check out what sleep enhancement programmes are on offer – they are probably my favourite thing to do.
The only problem you will have is choosing what treatments to indulge in! The oil massage, steam baths, holistic aromatherapy, acupuncture, reflexology, facials, herbal treatments and whatnot are simply out of this world. The saunas, swimming pools, steam rooms and special treatments make every spa weekend a real treat!
