SPA in Asia
Modern SPA resorts in Asia go beyond the usual rest and relaxation, it is a kind of laboratory of bodily harmony and physical perfection.

Improvement and rejuvenation of the physical body improves our mood, self-esteem, and therefore expands the horizons of our lives in all areas.
Scientists have proven that of all the representative systems of man, the most ancient and powerful is touch (the amoeba had neither sight nor hearing, but had a sense of the body), which is why Asia pays so much attention to working with the body. This is the knowledge and experience about the “secrets and mysteries” of the human body, accumulated and transmitted by monks and healers from antiquity: about the meridians, the balance of the chakras and the sacred energy of a person. Any therapy begins with cleansing, and then balancing all body systems and finding inner harmony.
The most effective spa hotels are those with a systematic approach to healing the body, which include time-tested, most effective therapy technologies: an individually selected diet, massage, aromatherapy, herbal and spice treatment grown in ecologically clean areas. This is complemented by yoga, tai chi, breathing practices by the ocean.
In Asia, it is important that the space in which the treatment is carried out is important, the space should be filled with a feeling of cleanliness, comfort and promote maximum relaxation, which is why most of the elite Spa hotels are located in secluded places, in the mountains, surrounded by jungles, by the ocean.
