What is spa therapy?

Scent • Sight • Sound • Skin treatment

The word “spa” comes from the name of a Belgian town where a thermal spring was discovered in the fourteenth century. Reportedly, the ‘curative powers’ of its ‘medicinal baths’ became so popular that the name stuck. Since then, the concept of spa therapy as a health treatment has become well established. Marquis spa therapy combines hydrotherapy massage with the benefits of aromatherapy, chromotherapy, music therapy and oxygen skin therapy. It offers the relaxation and mental health benefits found in nature, but in the comfort, convenience and privacy of home.

Spa therapy benefits

According to an article published in Rheumatology International’s Clinical and Experimental Investigations, “Perhaps the most important aspect of spa therapy is the psychological effect of removal from the stress of… work.” Indeed, the multisensory effects of scent, sight, sound and skin treatment help to remove tension and anxiety, improve mood and create an overall sense of well-being.
