What is the Difference Between Spa & Spa Treatments?

Initially, the spa is a place with mineral-rich thermal water that people visit for their medical bathing. Many people throughout history prefered ‘spa’ as a method of healing and relaxation. Thermal spas are often located around thermal waters that produce high sulphide chloride water containing sodium, calcium and hydrogen carbonate. Having its roots in Japan and Europe, the spa became popular worldwide and changed styles through different spa facilities and complexes.

Spa treatments are non-surgical treatments offered in many places, including spa facilities, beauty salons, hotels and even at home. So you don’t need to go to a thermal spa to have a spa treatment. Today, unique spa treatments from many countries are available worldwide. The most popular spa treatments are baths, face and body treatments, body wraps, hot tubes, mud baths, massages, scrubs and saunas.
