It is necessary to escape into another world due to our busy work schedule. There are lots of health benefits to shun all external stimuli and work on our inner selves –from a couple of hours to a few weeks.
For us busy urbanite, we can choose a city day spa. If we can afford the time, take a couple of weeks off – fly to a new destination such as Inle Lake. A change of environment can be good for the soul and before making your hotel reservation, ask the hotel staff for example ask our reservation staff at Sanctum Inle Resort or Google the selected hotel websites to see if there is a spa onsite and also go through the spa menu to get an idea of what treatments are available.
So what does a day spa in the hotel provide? It can be a space to pamper ourselves in much needed “me” time, to chill out, relax, recharge, reflect, detox and re-energise. Day spas cater to a range of health promoting experiences. The curative powers of massage therapies have been developed on since early times. Spas and massage therapies are thus naturally connected.
