1 Hot Stone

This involves the application of water-heated basalt stones, hot stone therapy targets key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth.

A Hot Stone therapy massage expands the blood vessels and pushes blood and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system.

2 Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses the different scents from natural oils to improve your overall health and well being as well as addressing particular problems.

3 Mud Treatments

This treatment involves using volcanic ash powder and essential oils such as pine needle. This dried thermal substance is mixed with magnesium oxide and talcum as well as paraffin. It is then dehydrated and applied at a very high temperature.

4 Body & Skin Detox

If you're looking to revitalize your skin then detox treatments like mud or scrubs can help. There are plenty of varieties of detox products and treatments readily available, so you will be spoiled for choice.

Body detox treatments can help to remove deep seated toxins. Furthermore, special muds and creams will give your skin badly needed nutrients and minerals as well as moisturizing to help replace fluids in the upper levels of your skin.

5 Dead Sea Salt

The Dead Sea has special unique 'healing' qualities attributed to the fact that the water from this sea is only two thirds H20 (water). The rest is salt that is extraordinarily rich in minerals. Dead Sea therapies were first used for healing over two thousand years ago, so you can safely presume these treatments really do work!

This body of water has certain characteristics that exist nowhere else on this planet. It is the lowest place in the world at four meters below sea level. Dead Sea therapies take advantage of these mineral rich characteristics and are especially effective against skin diseases such as vitiligo, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. It's also very good for arthritis and rheumatism.

If you're looking for that special weekend or mid-week pampering session, especially if you have never done so, you really should treat yourself to a spa treatment at any luxury hotel spa The wellbeing benefits are boundless.
