    When we hear the word spa, there are some words that automatically come to our mind: rest, relaxation, well-being, among others. Spas naturally bring about ana rray of emotions, so much that when we are inside one we forget about everything: the daily life, housework, children, office, traffic, etc.

    It is important to consider that the choice of the spa and the services we will take must not be based only on our desire to go or the cost of services, but rather accordingly to what our body really needs. This is vital, given that if we don’t provide our body with the correct treatment in a professional place, it won’t be worth it to be in a spa cabin. We will feel as we wasted our money because in a few days we will feel just as tired or with no improvement at all.

    For all these reasons, we set up to listing some of the most sought after massages with their benefits and counter indications.
