The health and fitness of the UK population is a regular topic on national news and many of us are strongly aware of the need to adopt a healthy lifestyle. From eating the right things including our five pieces of fruit or vegetables a day to getting enough exercise, there are whole host of things to do to help keep us healthy.
Those in the health professions make continuous pleas to us to exercise more and cook healthy, nutritious meals yet the public replies that there is no time within their already overloaded schedules. Work and family commitments take priority and if theres any time spare then going to gym is often the last thing on peoples minds. Leisure time is a precious commodity and it would seem our desire to relax vs. our knowledge that we need to keep fit are totally contradictory. Or are they?
Health spa is a term that surely appeals greatly and with the rising popularity of spa amongst men and women it would seem that the industry has come up with a winning combination. Statistics reveal that the spa industry is growing faster than the fitness industry and offers so much opportunity many are diving in with both feet to make the most of this market.
But why is spa so popular? With todays hectic lifestyles long hours at the office, busy women who have it all and stress being another hot topic the idea of retreating to a haven of peace and relaxation sounds like total luxury. Add to this our desire to hold back the years and look forever young and some of the facials out there promise a lot its no doubt were booking at and staying at more spa resorts than ever before.
A visit to the spa is no longer just about a quick manicure of pedicure. Those choosing to visit a spa can stay for a day or evening, overnight (or longer) or perhaps visit for a hen party or even corporate day.
Choosing what treatments to have during your spa visit can be a tricky choice. Like reading a menu in an award-winning 5-star restaurant youll find the choices staggering as words such as relaxing, revitalising, refreshing and moisturising jump out from all over the pages with promises of soothing away all aches, pains and worries and wrinkles too.
The other benefit of visiting a spa is that, if you choose the right location, you neednt leave the resort for your entire stay. Location is an important consideration and many independent hotels have excellent spa facilities while also benefiting from superb positions.
Nestled in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, a new spa has been developed at Barnham Broom Hotel. A beautiful country hotel the addition of The Spa has been well considered and carefully planned culminating in a successful development.
Through the use of soft lighting and natural materials including mahogany and granite, The Spa at Barnham Broom oozes calm from the moment you enter. Professional, friendly therapists are ready to greet you and listen to your needs as you discuss the very tempting treatment menu while their attention to detail is apparent through their choice to use the very luxurious ESPA range of products.
