Wellness In Half A Day. When we think of trips to a spa, and wellness in general, the image is one of languid relaxation, a slow and gentle process that gets rid of stress. Achieving that in less than a day seems a bit far-fetched, but if you approach it right it can be done. Find a quality spa local to you and then see what half day treatments they offer. Spa Urban Oasis at Debenhams, Manchester offers a fantastic This Is The Life Half Day Experience which targets your whole body to leave you rejuvenated in just 3 hours. To get the most benefit from a half day wellness retreat time if for the afternoon and then you can return home and totally unwind.

Holistic Whole Day Spa Break. If you can spare a day out of your hectic calendar of work, family and social events then take a full day spa experience. What you get for your money really depends on each spa, but in general a day spa break will include full access to the spas heat and water facilities throughout the day (ideal if you just want to lounge around for a bit), a selection of complimentary treatments included as part of the package, water and fruit juice on tap and a healthy lunch. A great example is the Ultimate Ashdown Experience at the Ashdown Park Hotel And Country Club in Sussex.

Stay At Home Self-Spa. We know that a lot of people are really busy and even carving out a few hours from your schedule can be a real hassle. So why not buy some wellness products from a local spa and give yourself some pampering at home in the evening. You’ll be amazed at what a couple of hours of focused wellness in your personal sanctuary can achieve.

It’s possible to build wellness spa treatments into our humdrum weeks. Instead of thinking of it as a yearly one-shot affair, little and often can be truly beneficial.
