What is SPA?

Spa is a word that is always associated with wellness treatments, but it means even more to a physical space. Nowadays almost all good and luxurious hotels have in your spa structure, a specific location to promote health and well-being. But it’s worth it met some more of the history of the spa to better understand the expression.

The word SPA (For other SPA acronyms, check AbbreviationFinder.org) derives from the Latin expression “sanus per aqua” which translated literally means health by water. The term named the town Spa, Eastern Belgium, which became famous as a spa resort, having since the 14th century its waters searched for the alleged medicinal character.

Today, the word designates a commercial or tourist establishment that offers activities of health, beauty and well-being. The International SPA Association defines several types of spas, accommodating traditional concepts of thermal spa, with new forms of urban spa, medical, hotel, etc. But it can be a public space, as it was in antiquity, or private places more common these days. May refer to a tub where the treatment of thermal waters.

The cities are in general smaller environments and targeted massage, aesthetic treatments and non-invasive medicine by providing service packages lasting less than a day – there are also sometimes referred to as Day Spa.
