The Great Spa Getaway
By Richard Green
A restful break away from work and home has always been most peoples dream, but these days a holiday just as often means a stressful excursion as much as a chance to unwind. Don't take any risks with your break from the nine to five: get away to luxury and turn up the pampering...
Picture yourself about to embark on a weekend spa getaway with all the tensions of everyday life knotted up in your back. You're sure you can actually feel the traffic you've just sat through in your left shoulder, and the report you have left to do at work in your right. You're anxious, stressed and, to put it simply, tired. But you arrive at your sanctuary all the same, pulling open its doors with a disbelief at having made it this far. What should you expect? Pure bliss.
You can undoubtedly look forward to a shift in the pace of your chaotic world, as it will slow down and take any anxious or hectic thoughts with it. What's more, you'll gain an unmistakable sense of being taken care of - and who doesn't enjoy all the splendours of being pampered every once in a while? After all, the staff in such a place know a bit about stress (though the word is not spoken of freely within these walls), and let's just say they probably know a thing or two about relieving it too.
You could find yourself, literally, in the best of hands as you receive divine massage treatments, warm basalt stone therapy, or perhaps even a fresh facial. And, depending on your getaway location, you could even take your treatments right on the beach - where you could watch the sun's rays sparkle on the sea, experience the sound of gentle waves crash atop your worries, and feel the light ocean breeze carry your strain away.
But you certainly don't have to find a tropical location to fulfil your idea of pure relaxation. You can find your very own haven in the most bustling of cities where, once inside, you might enjoy crystal pools which harmonize with the sweet fragrance of fresh flowers around you, or mineral mud baths that simply soak up and soothe your stress.
After such an experience, what could possibly be troubling your thoughts? Absolutely nothing. Your mind would have cleared itself of all its previous anxieties, and your body would be restored to a seemingly new state.
There are, undeniably, a wealth of choices available when it comes to spa getaways; but if you do a bit of research on available locations, or even if you have a destination already in mind, you can easily book many resorts and spas in advance and be on your way to heavenly bliss in no time. So rather than trudge through your day to day with your head in the clouds, get organised and get out there!
Whether you're day-dreaming of a tropical spa getaway in Jamaica, Hawaii, or Mexico, or possibly even a mini getaway in your very own city, you don't have to convince yourself that the experience will be worth it. After all, when you pull back the same doors you first came through, you'll walk out feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and simply remarkable. You'll be free of all your previous pressures, simply because you felt them all melt away through your toes and fingertips on this amazing break. And of course, with such an experience, you will have succeeded in making your great - dare I say perfect? - getaway.
