Maine Hotel and Resort Spa Vacations
The number one reason why people visit Resort and Hotel Spas is for relaxation, followed by a desire to reduce stress, lose weight, and stay healthy and fit during their vacation. Other reasons to visit a Resort or Hotel Spa are to be pampered, enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and mountain climbing, and to experience therapeutic treatments like massage, facials, and water and mud therapies. Maine Resort and Hotel Spas offer diversity for the health-conscious individual as well as the vacationer seeking simply to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings, while enjoying all the state of Maine has to offer.
Spa cuisine is also a significant attraction for the traveler seeking healthy food when choosing a vacation destination. Resort spa guests are seeking a destination where they can stay for an extended period and maintain their health regimen while enjoying their favorite sport and the diversity offered through resort activity programs.
The primary differences between a Resort and Hotel Spa can be found in the number of exercise equipment pieces, the variety of spa services that are available, and the availability of trained spa attendants. Most Hotel Spas will offer an exercise facility, massage therapy, sauna and Jacuzzi, but not the extensive services or trained fitness staff found at a Resort Spa.
Resort and Hotel Spas are the fastest growing area of the spa industry, in large part due to providing an array of services and amenities for entire families, groups of friends, couples with varying tastes, and singles. At a Maine Resort or Hotel Spa, the spa is just one of many amenities that can include golfing, tennis, mountain biking, canoeing, skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and any number of other outdoor activities of interest to all age groups.
Maine Destination Spas
A destination spa is different from a resort or hotel spa. A destination spa is meant for those people who are interested in a total immersion experience. Typically, while at a destination spa, costs are all-inclusive and the guests stay at the spa for the entirety of the visit. At a resort or hotel spa offers a variety of activities and options for non-spa guests.
Maine Day Spas
The concept of a day spa is to be able to incorporate the spa experience into your life when there would otherwise not be enough time. As the name suggests, the idea is that a person goes for a full day, or part of a day, of spa treatments. A day spa is great for people who need to refresh and rejuvenate but do not have time for a spa week or even weekend. A day spa is also perfect for people who have never been to one but want to try out going to a spa. For vacationers who wish to see the sights taking a day at a spa can be ideal. This allows for a nice relaxing period without taking up massive amounts of vacation time.
Maine Medical Spa
Spas were first created for the purpose of helping people to heal. Some places were believed to have healing properties and people would flock to them in the hopes of curing what was ailing them. These places were usually mineral or hot springs. Today a medical spa is defined as such because it offers a medical program which is run under strict supervision by a licensed health care professional, according the International Medical Spa Association. Many medical spas today offer traditional spa options but are defined by their offering of cosmetic procedures. Still, other medical spas stick with tradition and concentrate on helping people to thwart or deal with chronic problems.
Maine Health Spas
Health spas are typically where people go when they wish to improve their physical fitness. These spas specialize in teaching people how to have and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lessons on proper exercise and diet, whether trying to get rid of excess weight or not, are a key part to the experience. Many people go to a health spa for the express purpose of learning about proper nutrition and fitness. Other people are attracted to these spas to help them lose or start losing weight. This is because the supportive environment, coupled with the knowledgeable staff, will help them to eat and exercise properly so that they can lose weight and stay healthy.
Maine Holistic Healers & Holistic Spas
Holistic health is based on the idea of total well being – that a person needs to find balance in body, mind, and spirit. A holistic spa aims to treat all aspects of a person. To help the body unwind the physical aspect is treated with massages, facials, et cetera. This helps the person to relax and be more receptive as well as be able to function better. A soothing and quiet atmosphere allows for rejuvenation of the mind and reconnection with oneself.
