Spa therapies and treatments in the Lake District

The term ‘Spa therapy’ is not always associated with aqua (water) therapy. It signifies a wide range of spa treatments in the Lake District. The term has been derived from a Latin word “Spargere’’ which means sprinkle or moisten.

Historically spa treatments were exclusively provided for royal families but presently the spa implies a place for massage and other treatments. Massage/spa therapies are mostly for relaxation and soothing the aches or body pains. Massage or spa therapists provide the perfect treatment after detailed discussion with the client.

Today, spas concentrate not just on health. They combine the benefits of leisure, relaxation and beauty. A true spa is something that offers long lasting health benefits using natural resources.

Modern spa therapies have been created keeping in mind our hectic lifestyles. Spa treatments can range from a simple chair massage in a departmental store to a full-day pampering at a luxury spa.
