Resort to Health and Well-being. – Today, our desire to relax, restore, renew and rejuvenate has turned the concept of health and wellness into a multi-trillion-dollar global industry. And at the forefront of this booming landscape are the spa resorts themselves. Years ago, in this country, as least, most people didn’t know what “spa” actually meant, thinking it was an acronym for something related to diet and fitness like Special Places for Aerobics. In actuality, though, the origin of the word comes from an ancient Belgian town named Spa that was frequented by the likes of Peter the Great and known for its minerals springs that were believed to have curative powers. The town was so prominent, the very word spa became synonymous in the English language with a place to be restored and pampered.
