Drowning? Go to the water
Ever get the feeling that you are drowning in must-dos? Today it is harder than ever to find time to just be. Unwind. Relax. But we know that this is what we need in order to stay focused and in balance.
People have been going to the water since ancient times. Many used to believe that drinking water from wells, ‘drinking the cure’, had a medicinal effect, but nowadays we see that it was probably as much about getting away, taking a break, a change of atmosphere.
The word ‘spa’ is thought to be short for Salus Per Aqua – Health Through Water. When visiting any of the Association of Swedish Spa Hotels’ 41 spa facilities you will receive the benefit of going to the water – even today. However, you may choose to enjoy a glass of Champagne instead of spring water and salute the choice to treat yourself to a well-deserved and welcome getaway; some zero-pressure time, to regain balance and energy for demanding times ahead.
