Health Spa Resorts
The term 'health spa' is used with much abandon to describe a wide variety of spas.
Spas that offer treatments such as massage and holistic therapies could be described as health spas as they provide therapies that improve the body's well being and condition.
Equally those providing medical treatments such as osteopathy and dermatology could be described as such.
In fact, pretty much any spa could be called a health spa, as they are all designed to make the client feel better after receiving treatments than they did before.
However, perhaps a true health spa is one that encompasses all or many aspects of a healthy lifestyle.
From skin care to weight and healthy eating, massage, natural, medical and alternative therapies, exercise and spiritual well being.

One such establishment is the New Age Health Spa. Set in 280 acres around Catskill Mountains of Sullivan County, New York State this destination spa has developed over many years into an establishment that truly deserves the title health spa.
