Spa Resorts combine the luxurious spa experience with your favorite recreational activities. That is why they are tremendously popular. You can choose a health resort spa, where healthful spa treatments compliment such vacation activities as tennis, skiing, and horseback riding. Golf resorts and spas are particularly popular because guests can you play 18 or 36 holes of golf and come back to an exhilarating deep muscle massage and spa cuisine. Whether you have a spa weekend in mind, or a full week of play and pampering, you can have your pick of spa resorts. Every city, large and small, has at least one hotel spa and probably a dozen others . Ever popular gaming destinations like Las Vegas, Nevada and Atlantic City, New Jersey are famous for their opulent spa resort casinos. You can find a spa resort that is just right for you no matter where you live or travel.

Top Ten Spas

These are just a few of the findings of a comprehensive study at Cornell University. Destination spas address the whole being by offering comprehensive life enhancement programs that encompass hiking, yoga, massage, acupuncture, weight, stress management and smoking cessation approaches, visualization, hypnosis, writing workshops and other healing and energizing modalities.
