Lanzarote brings neither snow nor minus temperatures. However, saunas, whirlpools and steam baths can be a pleasant and relaxing experience for the body and mind all year round. Here is our handy guide to the spas on the island. Usually a spa or wellness centre is a place that is based on the philosophy of providing harmony for the body, spirit and soul. In a spa one can relax the body and mind in equal measure and reap the rewards of numerous amounts of benefits which are associated with a spa. Therefore, we not only improve our outer appearance, from an aesthetic viewpoint, but we also comfort and warm our hearts and souls. In general a good spa concept entails good service, a personal trust coupled with therapy, and of course the main element is lots of water! Nowadays people go to spas for treatments including massage, facials and aromatherapy. The practice dates back to Roman times and was later revived in 16th century England. However, although the origin of the word 'spa' is unknown, it is estimated that it either stems from the Belgian city 'Spa' or is an abbreviation for the Latin sentence 'Sanus Per Aquam' meaning 'Health through water'.
