At first glance you may think that a Destination Spa is a health spa. People visit to feel better, rejuvenate, lose weight, exercise, etc… That sounds like a health spa. But really Destination Spas offer so much more than a traditional “health spa”, which is primarily focused on physical health. Destination Spas offer a holistic approach addressing the health of the mind, body, and spirit. Some spa activities address each individually while others, such as yoga, encompass all three.
Active minds are healthy minds - guiding our behaviors, continuously yearning for more knowledge, and seeking emotional bliss. People can satisfy and control their minds by continually stimulating them with information, engaging in creative outlets, and finding a sense of security. Destination Spas challenge and focus the mind with interactive lectures and creative outlet classes or while reading a book or journaling during free time.
Healthy bodies thrive on active movement and healthy nutrition during the day and abundant, restful sleep during the night. Destination Spas nourishing the body with whole, nutrient-dense foods, exercise during the day, and adequate restful sleep at night. Fitness gurus, nutrition experts, and health professionals are available to answer questions and help guide guests on a healthier lifestyle.
Healthy Spirits soar with purpose. Destination Spas help guests discover and define their purpose by working on relationships and strengthening faith. Through meditation, counseling sessions, and discovery classes, guests connect with their spirit and allow it to grow.
So yes, of course Destination Spas are health spas. And by addressing the mind, body, and spirit, they are so much more!
