The New Green Eco Spas
Gradually we are all becoming more receptive to and encouraging of an eco-friendly environment.
Green living, biodegradable products, lowering emissions and carbon footprints are all subjects found in our daily lives.
It is not surprising that the spa industry is also starting to offer more ecologically sound treatments and facilities.
An Eco spa resort will provide holistic therapies and use natural products, put a few have taken things one step further and are designated 'eco-spas'.
Eco-spas are a relatively new and emerging innovation.
For their clients they offer treatments and therapies using only 'green' products made from natural sources and without any chemical enhancements.
The treatments themselves will be holistic, and are often drawn from ancient Asian traditional remedies and methods, developed centuries ago in a time where man lived more in harmony with their surroundings than we do today.
But it doesn't stop there. A true eco spa resort will endeavor to go as green as possible, from using recycled paper to furnishings made only from sustainable sources, whilst retaining all the luxury and comfort one expects of a spa.
