The same concept of health since 1948, according to the World Health Organization, no longer coincides with the concept of "absence of disease" but depends on a "state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing" and the balance of different aspects of our life that include the aesthetic, emotional and mental ones.
"from fundamental physiological needs to those related to the realization and expression of the spiritual sphere”
The thinking was that aesthetic treatments should be done consistently, since small gestures for beauty do help with self-esteem, more over the same care that we give to the things we love should be reserved for our body through the self-care we do at home. For even more effective results we are tempted by specialized beauty centres where you can find both traditional and functional treatments such as manicures, pedicures and epilation.
Also for the choice of products we see an increasingly marked differentiation and we are not surprised by the progress, alongside the purely cosmetic products, of natural products with the use of natural elements such as volcanic stones, mud, clay, stones, flowers, fruits, sea salts.
Each SPA or thermal centre has its own specific rituals, imagination over the years has given ample space to rituals capable of involving as many senses as possible also through the use of products or ingredients that offer customers real experiences in what is partly aesthetic treatment and partly total emotional involvement in which time and space expand completely, creating a multisensory journey.
In addition to these rituals, there are many other rituals that we can define in step with today's times, such as a pad massage to relieve the annoying pain deriving from bad posture as a result of an excessive number of hours in front of smartphones or computers. Digital detox treatments aim to detoxify the body from the use of technology thanks to the practice of some yoga positions or bio-electro detox which is a bio-energy treatment based on the laws of electrolysis to expel stored waste from the feet.
The combination of health and wellness
Each of us will make our own choice by orienting ourselves towards a very personal search for wellbeing; made up of a well-kept image, synonymous with a great gesture of love for our body, but also an image that cannot ignore the care of mental and social wellbeing.
