Spending time at a day spa is one of the best ways to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
Becoming increasingly popular in recent years, the day spa really helps people find an escape from the daily grind, even for just 24 hours. And with day spas dotted all over the country, in towns and cities, in the countryside and on the coast your choice and availability is better than you may think.
Once just the preserve of the rich and famous, they are now somewhere that everyone can go, with prices to fit all budgets. Whether you want to spend a hundred pounds or a thousand pounds, you'll find somewhere right for you.
Facilities vary, with different place offering different specialities. The focus can be on beauty treatments, diet and detox, exercise, or maybe pure relaxation. At the top end, you will typically find all of these services offered in one location, but in a less expensive, local place, they might choose to specialise in just one area.
As with many service industries, it pays to ask around and get recommendations from other people - if a friend or family member has had a good experience somewhere, you can make your reservation knowing that you are likely to have a enjoy it.
Finally, it's worth mentioning that this little taste of luxury isn't just for ladies - more and more men are enjoying the opportunity to relax and escape for a day.
