A visit to a spa can be a life changing experience. The typical spa these days is much more than a place to go for a massage or a pedicure. The top spas in the country are in the business of not only pampering you but trying to help you become a happier and healthier person. The typical spa trip will include experiences that appeal to all of your senses in an effort to enhance your overall well being.

When you visit a spa, the decisions on how you will spend your time are often left to you but you would be wise to choose one of their packages that incorporate a wide variety of services from facials to mineral baths. Open up your mind to new experiences and rely on the trained professionals to develop a program that could lead to real changes which will improve the quality of your life.

A typical day at an upscale spa will start early. Places like the Life Path Spa in upstate New York want you there, first thing in the morning for an exercise class. The staff will put you through a series of light stretching activities before a healthy breakfast. They will then send you out onto one of their beautiful nature trails for a brisk walk. Research shows that exercise first thing in the morning will jump start your metabolism and give you energy for the entire day.

After your walk, lunch is served and once again you will find only nutritional choices. The daily activities will include informational sessions on how you can make healthy meals for yourself back at home. The afternoon will also include relaxing activities like a mineral bath or massage. This is also the time to get a facial or manicure. Exercise classes are offered throughout the afternoon along with yoga and one on one session with a personal trainer. There is even time to relax in front of the fire with a good book.

Spa day trips are an excellent way for a wedding party to bond before the big day. Brides and their bridesmaids can be pampered and primp at the spa before the ceremony. The day could start with manicures and pedicures and end with everyone getting their hair done. In between, there is time to sip champagne and relax in advance of all of the exciting activities to follow. Too many brides don’t get to fully enjoy their day because of all the hustle and bustle. The Spa is a perfect opportunity to relax and make your wedding day a day to enjoyment.

If you have come by yourself or with a friend your day at the spa will wrap up with a fine dinner of fresh ingredients which is followed by an evening class which will give you some ideas on how to live healthy when you return home. The subject could be weight loss, nutrition or meditation. Licensed dieticians or counselors lead these classes which will include classroom discussions and handouts to put the ideas that are recommended into practice. Sometimes all it takes to make major changes is a little push in the right direction.
