Spa therapy warms and relaxes.

We shared drinks and nibblies on a rug at the beach with our wonderful neighbours. As it was cool when we returned they invited us in for a hot spa under the Milky Way.

My physiotherapist had told us that pressure of water activates the parasympathetic
nervous system. I have to tell you that the movement of water gives a gentle massage that helps to take away the pain of activity (doing too much and overstimulating), and the pain of inactivity (after a night in bed).

  • pressure is calming
  • gentle massage eases pain
  • heat warms the cold parts
  • it's fun
