Many believe that the word spa is an abbreviation of the term "salus per aqua", which means "health through water". Water has always been associated with health, purification and well-being, dating all the way back to Greek and Roman times.
Today, medical researchers study the effects of sauna and spa visits, and are constantly providing new answers to what it means to expose the body to heat and cold, and the effects of this. There are therefore several health reasons to make spa visits a habit!
