Spa Therapy and Wellness
The ambience and design of each therapy suite at The Elgin Hotels & Resorts is inspired by body’s seven energy centres called chakras, which are located at various spots starting from the base of the spine to a point at the top of your head. “Chakra” in Sanskrit means ‘Wheel’ which is used to describe various points where the energy builds up in numerous massive nerve centres. The chakras help in regulating the functioning of the human body, including everything from organ working to intricate series of emotions. The one who practices yoga or practices meditation will be quite familiar with these energetic centre points through which ‘prana’ or ‘energy life force’ flows.
In the busy times we live, we are often looking for ways to escape into another world, to shut off from external stimulation even if it’s just for a short time. This urgent ‘get away’ need is becoming an increasing reality. This is where a spa can prove as a blessing, where you can indulge in some much-needed ‘Me Time,’ to relax, recharge and reflect. Spas and touch therapies are thus intrinsically interlinked and the healing power of touch therapy have been expounded on since ancient times. If you are planning to rejuvenate with your inner self, The Elgin Spa can bewitch your enervated soul and mind. It offers a distraction from the routine grind and brings back positive aspects in life by revitalizing your mind and soul.
The word spa means “health through water”. It is a treatment involving healing waters and includes several different massage therapies. Through these therapies, spa centres offer a relaxing semblance for physical and mental ataraxia. Spa therapies date back to the Roman era, where they used to build baths for soldiers returning home after a war to help relieve their fatigue. Each wellness spa offers a unique slice of tranquillity to cleanse the body and rejuvenate the soul. The miraculous setting, decoration, treatments and exquisite food together offered at The Elgin deliver a getaway experience which will pamper you like no other. Beyond the indulgence, the resort offers the ability to choose from a range of beauty and body spa treatments as well.
The soothing effect of spa treatments is not only limited to physical health, but it also helps with mental health. Physical relaxation brings along a well-rested mind which in the end sends mental stress away.
