We live in a hectic, overscheduled and quite simply, stressful world. It’s tough to find the time to relax, although increasingly, people are managing to set aside the time to spend a day (or part of the day) at a spa in order to relax and recharge their batteries.

The word "spa" conjures up images of long days filled with mud baths and meditation classes, exquisitely prepared spa cuisine, and fragrant eucalyptus groves.
