Wherever you are, try to find time to relax and unwind. Do some research and try to find either water spas or relaxing spas near where you are staying. Spas often have deals going on, so if you are on a fixed budget you may want to explore this. Before you visit the spa, be sure to read the spas website for what is included in the cost – some spas don’t provide foot wear, so I always pack a cheap pair of flip-flops.
Water spas have cold, warm, and hot baths, and include dry saunas and wet saunas (most add essential oils to the saunas). The idea is to go from hot to cold baths/saunas in order to give your body’s circulation system a boost. Most water spas have quiet meditation areas, and often encourage silence while in the spa. Prices for the use of waters usually range from $50 for 3 hours to $100 for an entire day, but it totally depends on the spa.
Relaxation spas often have multiple treatment options for one price, or a one-time price for using the premises. Some also offer yoga and meditation classes, as well as nature hikes at no extra cost. Be sure to read the entire website so that you can get your money’s worth. Relaxation spas can be quite pricey, so explore your options before you travel.
While at the spa, find areas where you can do a few postures or simple stretching like the one above. Any form of stretching and inversions encourage blood flow, further stimulating the circulation system. Travelling puts strain on the body, so you will benefit from any kind of spa visit.
