Do you know what is the difference between spa, thermal baths and wellness center?

The wellness industry is recording a strong growth trend from year to year. A trend determined in particular by the change in lifestyle by the western population increasingly oriented towards the well-being of mind, body and soul and the improvement of the quality of life.

Wellness centers, spas and spas have therefore become the main destination for those in search of peace and serenity. But what exactly is the difference between these three places?

Spa is the acronym of the Latin phrase “ Salus per Acquam ”, or “ Health through water ”. According to the Accademia della Crusca of Florence, the term originates from Spa, the name of the Belgian town in the province of Liège rich in thermal springs. Whatever the origin, the Spa offers treatments based on thermal water (hydrotherapy, the main element at the base of any body care therapy. In fact, water cures particular ailments through thermal, mechanical and chemical stimuli that it induces on the human body Water therefore has multiple uses.

  • The hydrotherapy
  • The hot tubs
  • The Turkish bath
  • The emotional shower
  • The Kneipp path
  • The Finnish sauna

The thermal baths

like spas, they also exploit the benefits of water to offer therapeutic treatments. The peculiar feature, however, lies in the use of hot waters that flow directly from the subsoil , exploiting the resulting vapors and muds. These waters are particularly rich in minerals and gases which are precious for the health of the skin, joints and respiratory tract which, combined with mud and clay, are able to fight inflammation, cellulite, rheumatism and wrinkles.

Even in wellness centers you can find treatments that exploit the benefits of water, but unlike spas and thermal baths, other services are also added to these entirely dedicated to relaxation and well-being of mind and body. Among the additional services that can be found in a wellness center there are: massages and body and face treatments.
