Spa for me is more than just relaxing treatments and pampering facials. It’s a chance to time out of your normal routine. It’s about stopping, taking stock of you and your health and then trying to live a happy and healthier life. That’s why I have introduced the section on wellness it’s about developing a new sense of well-being, a touch of fitness and a great outlook on life. That’s means something different for all of us. I don’t advocate abstinence just a bit of balance.
