There are many benefits to treating yourself to a Spa. For one thing, it's a great way to relieve stress. Those tight muscles soon become relaxed as all those knots are kneaded out.
For some, it's the only time they experience the nurturing of the human touch. When is the last time you treated yourself to an afternoon of complete relaxation? Perhaps it's time to give your mind and body some much-needed pampering.
Take a look at a few of the benefits that await you:

And last but not least, it just feels so good.
Beautiful California Beach
High on My Bucket List
The #1 spot on my bucket list is to visit World Class Spas and Resorts for Mind-Body Rejuvenation. If you're anything like yours truly, both your mind and your body could use some rejuvenating from time to time. But knowing that the likelihood of visiting a world-class spa is not going to happen, I've settled for the next best thing - a virtual visit and a strong imagination.
I'd love to have you join me and you know you could use a minute or two for a break - so grab a comfortable seat, some hot Chinese tea, and your favorite treat and let's go!.
Our First Island - Djerba
Who doesn't love beautiful sandy beaches and a peaceful, silent countryside? Our first stop has both because it is the gorgeous island of Djerba. This dream of a place is an island in south Tunisia which has one of the best ecological destinations in the World.
This beautiful island preserves its traditions and its unique architectural settings making it both a perfect vacation and one of the world's most beautiful spas.
Let's find a hotel, leave our worries behind and prepare to be pampered.
Beautiful tour complete with Belly Dancer
Next is Malaysia's East Coast
Arriving next on Malaysia's east coast, which is located between Kuala Terengganu and Kuantan, we seek out the best spa. And lo and behold The Tanjong Jara Resort is waiting to greet us.
This resort features their award-winning " Spa Village "located on the peninsula. Tired from the long trip, we go directly to the spa where we indulge in a rare experience. there is no telling how long these treatments have been going on as they have been passed down through generations. And now it's our turn.
Take your bath naturally - outdoors
An Eloquent Symbol of Spa Towns
Spa's Hot Springs Have Healing Properties
As early as the 14th century, Spa's hot springs have been known to have healing properties. So this is one "Spa" that we who suffer from arthritis and other aches and pains will want to indulge ourselves. Ahhhhhhhh, just imagine how good it feels to soak in this healthy warm mineral water. We may decide to park ourselves right here for awhile.
And yes - the town of Spa gave it's original name for all the other spas now available around the world.
The Birth Place of The Spa
Bermuda, Elbow Beach and Pink Sand
Let's jet on over to Bermuda for a few days of complete relaxation. I know about a beach that boasts one of the best spas in the world. Elbow beach calls out to one and all with its pink, soft sand and oh, that fresh sea air.
I don't know about you, but I am more than eager to experience the Mandarin Oriental's holistic sensory philosophy. Being transcended to a state of complete relaxation using the body and mind is surely a real treat.
We will book a personalized 2 hour session in our own private sanctuary, followed by sipping on Chinese herbal tea as we lounge on the veranda taking in the spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean.
Let's hear it for Elbow Beach...Ahhhhhhhhh.
How About A Pink Sand Scrub?
When To Avoid A Massage
A massage feels so good and relaxing it must be good for everyone right? Not necessarily.
According to professor Alan Platt, who teaches physician assistants at Emory University's School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, there are definite times to avoid massage. "If there's any damage to bones or muscles that could be manipulated out of place, massage isn't a good idea," he cautioned.
"Like a slipped disc or things like that, where it actually may increase irritation of the nerves or the nerve roots are times where it may be beneficial to stay away or stay away from that area."
So keep this in mind when you're considering a session with a massage therapist.
How Often Have You Been To A Spa?
Wilbur Hot Springs - California
Wilbur Hot Springs Spa
Wilbur Hot Springs Spa is actually doable for me. Located in Northern California, this resort offers natural mineral springs which have been bubbling since long before the stagecoach era. Here you will find solitude and peace as you connect with nature on this 1,800 nature reserve.
We can all meet for a delicious breakfast and either go on a picturesque hike or lovely bike ride. Maybe some of us will do both.
Please enjoy the video below which features Wilbur Hot Springs.
This might be just the spot to end our tour of World Class Spa and Resorts For Mind-Body Rejuvenation.
As for me...you can just leave me at any one of these beautiful spa resorts. I will continue writing for Hubpages as I inhale the luxury of being pampered.
