Spa Therapy 300 hour program

“Spa Therapy” phrase presently signifies a wide range of treatments, which may or may not be associated with aqua (water) therapy. The word Spa was used in the past in reference to water treatment. SPA stands for “Solus Per Aqua” which means health from water and is the inspiration of our brand which are the alchemical symbols for Sun and Water.

The most popular spa treatment by far, is massage. It has been around for thousands of years and has a number of health benefits.

The two most popular massages are Swedish massage and deep tissue massage.  Swedish massage typically covers the whole body with firm strokes but without much deep, focused work.  Deep tissue massage will use firmer pressure and also include focused work on areas that are especially tight.  Another massage offering on most menus is an aromatherapy massage, which uses essential oils to achieve different purposes, most commonly relaxation


Other popular spa treatments include body treatments like salt glows and body wraps.     The basic body scrub exfoliates your outermost, dead skin cells with a salt scrub (rougher), a sugar scrub (gentler) or some other exfoliant, like coffee grounds or fruit enzymes that gently loosen the inter-cellular bonds. A body scrub can be a stand-alone treatment, but it is often combined with a body wrap that is either hydrating (adding moisture to the skin) or detoxifying  (anything with clay, mud or seaweed).

 Some spas, usually have signature services or offer packages  that might combine several different treatments:    a body scrub followed by a hot stone or regular massage, for instance.
