Spaaaa.....hhh Time by Eva Southwood

With the winter nearly over, the past few months of comfort food, lack of regular exercise, dry air, short days and less sunlight all contribute to the late-winter blahs, and we often feel a little worse for wear. Add to the list the usual stresses such as work, lack of sleep, and the occasional over-indulgence over a period of time and we have a recipe for the need of a full-on physical overhaul, or at least a little attention to our physical wellbeing. Looking out the window at the cold and often grey late winter, we feel the need to stretch our muscles and lift our moods, not to mention spirits. Time to visit a spa.

Since ancient times, people the world over have enjoyed going to the spa, with the purpose of health and renewal of body, mind, and spirit. Most early spas were centered around hot or cold mineral springs and by the time of the Roman Empire, the spa held a central place in everyday life. These elaborate spas often included, along with the baths, places for people to congregate and mingle, with amusements that included, by the 18th century, theatre, concerts, gambling, and dancing. In America, local hot and cold springs have been an attraction since colonial times, with New York boasting of several popular springs that have since become full-on destinations. The concept of the spa has grown, however, moving beyond the idea of a location by a mineral springs, to include resorts in all areas with on-site facilities that offer full ranges of services, to day spas that offer à la carte services as well as beauty treatments for hair, skin and nails. Wellness centers offer another approach by offering spa services as part of an overall individualized health and treatment plan. The variety of choices now gives patrons many options from which to choose.

For those who have never experienced the full effect of a spa retreat, the luxury seems truly that: a luxury. However, many spa adherents will relate the complete rejuvenation they feel after a spa retreat, to all aspects of their life. Many spas offer a full menu of rejuvenating and health focused options from which to choose, including the requisite selection of massages and skin treatments, as well as classes in yoga, meditation, reflexology, nutrition, and other holistic approaches to health and wellness. So a spa retreat is more than just a luxury—it is a chance to take time out from the stress of your daily life and focus on your overall health. Those that return from a full spa experience feel recharged and ready to take on their regular routines again with renewed vigor and poise. Some make lifelong health changes that lead to longer and better lives. In fact, the health benefits of spa treatments are an accepted part of an overall health plan in many countries, and taking a yearly spa retreat is seen as a vital part of taking care of your health.

So, with your health and peace of mind at heart, Roll is presenting our first Spas and Retreats showcase. The following spas and retreats offer a full range of options for the enthusiasts, as well as the spa novices who are interested in discovering the benefits of giving your body the attention it deserves.

You deserve it!
