Currently, “spa” is attracting attention as a fast-growing industry, and the word “spa” is flooding the streets, and spa in Fort Worth, TX salons and shops are also rapidly increasing. Even in such a situation, there are still many opportunities to be asked “what exactly is a spa?”
Although we often hear the word “spa”, there are various questions about spas such as “what does the spa offer?”
This seems to be because the definition of the spa has not been established, and vague visual images are preceded. For example, the image is of an aesthetic salon, a hot spring, a hot spring bathing facility, and even an image of a woman relaxing elegantly in a resort area or a luxury city hotel. With such images intermingled, a flow of capturing the spa with an image has been created, and it has become unclear what exactly a spa is.
Spa (spa) can be broadly divided into three etymological meanings
The first is “hot springs and hot springs”, the second is “recreation facilities that provide treatment using hot springs and mineral springs”, and the third is the “spa movement” that can be said to be a new style of spa that is rapidly expanding its market in various parts of the world, and it is this spa movement that the question “what is a spa?” refers to.
The history of the spa movement is short, and it is believed that it was formed in the United States in 1991. Various factors intertwined in the United States at the time, and with the establishment of the international spa association (ISPA), a new style of the spa was born today.
So why did a new style of spa emerge in the United States at the end of the 20th century?
Here’s a quick introduction to its historical background. From the 18th century to the end of the 19th century, various natural medicines (allopathic medicine = medicine mainly). The “idea that health is achieved in a state in which a harmonious equilibrium is maintained without separating the body and spirit” and “awareness of returning to nature” has spread, and people’s values and lifestyles have changed. The essence of the spa movement that originated in the United States can be said to be this holistic (holistic) view of health.
