|WHAT IS A SPA AND WHAT IS A MEDI SPA|
The word spa literally means SANUS PER AQUAM (Latin derived) or health by water it is taken from the town of spa in Belgium which was one of the first places to recognise the healing properties of mineral rich water. Water and massage in strengthening the constitution and treating disease date back to Hippocrates (known as the father of Western medicine) and the ancient Egyptians who believed water had both physical and sacred properties. In Ayurveda (Indian) and traditional Chinese medicine water is the medium through which life force or qi or prana travels within the body. The term spa has widened to include a diverse combination of ancient philosophies and modern techniques but the common thread water remains. Given that an approximated 85% of all illness is stress related spa therapies around the world utilise Eastern and Western methods to prevent and therapeutically combat the effects of stress and promote relaxation.
The term Medi Spa is the latest trend and buzz word in Europe, America and Canada in the development of the modern spa with many clients from overseas travelling to Medi Spas for aesthetic/anti-ageing/rejuvenation/ cosmetic/ medical/dental/ wellness/detoxification treatments in luxurious, soothing, tranquil environment of a spa than a clinical hospital setting. Medi spas are run under the supervision of a medical dr/dentist.
