With the recent release of the film “New Moon”, the latest Twilight saga offering, easy-on-the-eye leading man Robert Pattinson has once again been gracing the front pages of newspapers and magazines around the world.
Robert is evidently a young man who takes good care of his physique, so it came as no surprise to learn that he has been treating himself – albeit under another name – to regular spa visits while filming Eclipse, the third in the Twilight series. No doubt he’s only too happy to escape the stresses of the set and enjoy a relaxing massage.
But you don’t need to be a film star to take advantage of the many benefits of the spa experience. Whilst spas were once the preserve of the rich and famous, nowadays women and – a rapidly growing number of – men from all walks of life are discovering the diverse therapeutic delights on offer at the UK’s leading spas.
And there’s certainly plenty for them to discover, as anyone who has recently visited a state-of-the-art health spa will readily confirm. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that today’s health resorts have something for everyone, whatever their age, their state of physical fitness (or decrepitude!) and their personal preferences.
If you’re looking for the ultimate relaxing weekend, a spa break can deliver precisely that. No matter how stressed and uptight you feel, it’s incredible how quickly you’ll forget the pressures of the outside world once you’re cocooned in the microcosm of the spa environment.
By the time you’re luxuriating in the aquamarine waters of a lagoon swimming pool or having your back gently massaged by a trained professional, you’ll soon forget that the outside world even exists.
Your new world will be one of pampering and indulgence, and you’ll become accustomed to it more quickly than you might imagine.
The spa experience offers endless possibilities – from fun hen (and stag!) weekends to relaxed family gatherings, and from well-deserved rewards for loyal employees to gorgeous Christmas gifts for friends. The exhaustive list of activities, therapies and beauty treatments on offer makes health resorts the perfect destination for all.
A romantic spa break can give couples a rare opportunity to escape from the often frantic professional or family frontline. Simply having the time to talk uninterrupted for a whole hour or more – unheard of in the real world! – over an exquisitely prepared meal can make a world of difference to the dynamics of a relationship.
And for single girls, there’s always the hope that lady luck might engineer you booking into the same spa as the delectable Robert Pattinson. Admittedly, the odds aren’t high – but hey, a girl can dream…
