borgpWhether you head to a desert destination spa for a week of exercise and activity, fly to Europe for the baths, take advantage of the resort spa during a business trip or have a cosmetic procedure done around the corner, the choices abound. Spas are “where it is at” and the resorts are providing the options you demand.

Types of Spas

Medical Spas- Cosmetic

These spas operate under the full-time supervision of a licensed healthcare professional. Medical personnel work alongside spa therapists in an atmosphere that integrates clinical-grade aesthetic enhancement and spa

treatments/concepts. Common med spa offerings include BOTOX® injections, photo-facials, and laser hair removal. Most services at these establishments are minimally invasive and require little downtime, though at some spas guests can meet with an on-site surgeon to discuss more aggressive options.

Each region has its own set of regulations dictating who can perform laser and injectable services; some require that a doctor perform them personally, while others allow trained medical staff (registered nurses, nurse practitioners, etc.) to administer them. Med spas may or may not have overnight accommodations.

Medical Spas – Wellness

Medical spas operate under the full-time supervision of a licensed healthcare professional or alternative-therapy practitioner. Comprehensive wellness and preventive care is provided that may adhere to traditional Western medical

concepts, complementary/alternative philosophies, or a combination of the two (known as integrative medicine). Spa treatments are incorporated into wellness programs as an effective way to rejuvenate and reduce stress. Medical spas may or may not have overnight accommodations.

These establishments offer a less symptom-based approach to healthcare than you'll find at most conventional doctor's offices. By emphasizing the links between mind, body, and spirit and/or identifying and addressing health risks before the onset of illness, medical spa practitioners aim to give guests the tools to achieve lasting well-being.

Resort and Hotel spas

When looking for a spa to enhance your vacation experience, Resort & Hotel Spas are a smart pick, offering a wide variety of recreational activities such as golf, tennis, horseback riding, skiing, and water sports, and renewing spa experiences.

Destination Spas

At the heart of the destination spa experience you'll find structured, personalized programs, and a community of like-minded people. Guests come for the blend of wellness education, physical fitness, healthful cuisine, and relaxing spa services. These spas offer all-inclusive options where overnight accommodations, classes, meals, and even some spa treatments are included.

Day Spas

There is no simpler way to treat yourself than a visit to a day spa. Soothing massages, beautifying facials, and rejuvenating body wraps are just a few of the heavenly spa treatments that provide a healing break from your everyday routine.  But day spas offer even more than top-notch services. In a world increasingly cluttered with noise and stress, day spas provide a space of calm (no cell phones allowed!) where men and women can fulfill their need for tranquility. Calming spa music, aromatherapy candles, and relaxation areas are among the many features that's day spas use to further health and relaxation.
