In a modern world “SPA” is a very popular combination of letters. SPA procedures are essential part of every salon of Thai Massage . Well, what does this word mean?
According to the history, there are two theories of the origin of this word: historical and geographical . The first theory says that the word “SPA” is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase «Sanus per Aquam» or «Sanitas pro Aqua», which means "health by means of water" or "health through water". This concept has been known since the days of ancient Rome, where for healing of different health problems hot springs and thermal baths were used. This recovery method was called SPA.
The second theory, which is based on the geographical origin, says that the word “SPA” has derived from the name of the Belgian city with the same name. SPA therapy spring was found in 1326 and reached its popularity in the 18th century, when the royals who have heard about its healing properties started to come to this spring.
Today the word gained wider meanings. SPA is a wellness complex of procedures using different kinds of water - mineral, sea or fresh water, sea algae or salts, mud treatments, wraps and healing herbs.
