Visiting A Beauty Spa

It sounds slightly clichéd, but in the busy word of the 21st century, many people just don’t have the time to relax at all. Many people try to involve themselves in too many things – work, sport and children can take up so much of a person’s life.

Everybody would love to keep as healthy as possible to live a longer, happier life. Many people sign up to gyms or start on strenuous walking routines to cut down on that belly fat, but what some people don’t tend to realise is that it is possible to relax and stay healthy at the same time.

The term ‘medical tourism’ is often associated with people travelling across borders to access cheaper or more effective medical care. However, medical tourism also comes in the form of singles, couples or groups taking a short trip to another country, usually in Europe, to take advantage of relaxing spa resorts there.

Europe is very popular among medical tourists as many nations on the continent are rich with natural resources such as soothing thermal springs and healing mud pools. The diverse nature of the

The History of Health and Beauty Spas

There is no denying the immense popularity that spas enjoy in Britain. This is reflected by the fact that the last few years have seen a sporadic rise in the number of spas across the major metropolitan areas of England, and each one of them is frequented by a throng of customers on a daily basis. There was a time when going to spas for different kinds of therapies was thought to be an activity that only women could enjoy. The recent times, however, present a different picture with a greater number of men now showing an inclination towards frequenting spas in order to maintain their looks and wellness at the same time.

How Health And Beauty Spas Came To Be In Britain:

The origin: The history of health and beauty spas in Britain dates back thousands of years ago, and can very well be accredited to the Roman army that discovered health benefits associated with the water flowing in hot springs and fresh mountain water. Inspired by the hot baths built by Arabs, the Roman utilized the naturally occurring therapeutic water from hot springs in the English

Beauty Spas

A hair salon specialises in hair cutting and hair colouring while a beauty spa is geared more towards facial and body treatments, although you will often encounter salons that do both. If you want to have your hair coloured, you should look for a place that specialises in colour. Again, most haircutting places will colour your hair, but if you want a professional to work on you, then you should select someone who colors hair regularly, not someone who does it just once in a while. You will need to seek out a specialist if you are seeking hair extensions too because not every spa is equipped to do hair extensions.

One of the most common treatment offered at beauty spas are face and body massages. Your massage will take place in a room specifically designed for massages. The room is warm, quiet and comfortable. There is normally soft music piped in to help with the relaxing experience, but if you do not like that, simply tell the masseuse and she will be able to turn it off. The table you lie on is padded and built for giving

Beauty Salon Or Beauty Spa

The beauty salon and the beauty spa are very similar in nature. Traditionally a beauty spa should have a spa facilities (makes sense right!?). This meaning it should have sauna, shower jacuzzi or a steam room or other hyrdotherapy facilities.

You will however see some beauty salons without these facilities claiming they are a spa and even using it in their name!. A spa tends to concentrate on the core relaxation treatments such as massage, facials, manicures and pedicures. The beauty salon on the other hand will offer these services in conjunction with a number of other essential beauty treatments such as waxing, spray tanning, acrylic nali extensions and make up to name a few.

The beauty salon can cater for a more diverse range of treatments if you find a salon with well trained professional and courteous beauty therapists. Generally spa’s a larger in size and will typically have larger overheads as a result of this and more often than not this is reflected in their prices. They usually offer more sumptuous surroundings but in times of economic uncertainty, it’s better to still have life’s little luxuries and a good beauty pamper on a budget

Visiting the Beauty Spa

Spa and beauty treatments often make use of techniques that aim to make the client both look and feel better, as in ginger body rubs from Ayurveda which detoxify as well as soften skin. Then there’s massage, which when done in

The Disaster Beauty Spa Experience

One chilly October evening, I headed out of town for a bit of pampering (or so I thought). A client had generously sent me a gift certificate to the spa of my choice and after doing a bit of online homework, I settled on a “top medical spa” that was a 30 mile drive from my house and boasted anti-aging treatments with a “celebrity following.” I was skeptical, but the before and after pictures on their website were the best on the web (note the power of proof) and with all the late nights I’ve been working, I could do with a miracle fix for my skin.

The problems with this place started even before I hopped in my car. There were a couple of not too favorable reviews which I had not paid that much attention to (I was hooked by their photos) and when I called to book my appointment I was advised by the curt receptionist that all appointments require a mandatory initial consult of $200.

Huh? Nothing on their website mentioned anything about having to first book a consult before a treatment. “The fee is halved if you book your treatment immediately

Bogus Beauty Treatments

It’s an age-old story. Men and women desperate to look younger/better/sexier but who lack the funds – or intelligence – to insist on quality treatment get taken in by bogus scams, bogus products and even bogus physicians. You get what you pay for – or do you?

Bogus Treatments and Products

Beauty queen and former Elvis love Priscilla Presley, now 62, famously made headlines when she visited a doctor who injected her with “low-grade silicon” he had smuggled into the US. It is thought the silicon was fabricated to grease auto parts, not plump up aging women’s faces.

The latest hype about the latest trendy product makes news headlines, and those in the know want to be first. However, they are also often the first to discover that the treatments don’t really work, or that the small benefit they get is not worth the hefty price tag. Here are a few that have either extremely temporary benefits, or none at all…

* Oxygen Facial. Can putting a bit of oxygen on your face really make your skin look fresh, younger and rejuvenated? Well, Hollywood actresses jumping on the oxygen facial bandwagon say yes; scientists
