Do you want to feel young again? Or rest your body and mind? Spain offers one of Europe's richest, most attractive and varied range of health-based tourism resorts, so why not plan a trip to one of the "Villas Termales" (spa complexes) and pamper yourself?

But... what is a "Villa Termal"?

Spain has many sources of mineral-medicinal waters – in fact, there are more than 2,000 registered springs. This led to the creation of "Villas Termales" (spa complexes). These spa complexes in Spain are a tourist destination where you can find mineral-mineral waters with healing properties, and one or several spas with spa therapies prescribed by doctors. As well as all this, there are relaxation and fitness treatments available. In short, you'll be treated like a king or queen, and you'll spend a few days relaxing and pampering yourself in high quality facilities. Although there are some spa complexes on the coast and in the city, most of them (there are more than 60) are small municipalities inland. So, as you can imagine, one of the highlights is that the landscape is extremely beautiful.  

What do the treatments at these spa complexes involve?

They offer typical treatments for chronic respiratory, locomotor and digestive system disorders. However, other types of treatments are becoming increasingly popular, like beauty treatments and those to lose weight, get rid of cellulite, stress, etc. Each spa will explain that there are several techniques to get the most out of mineral-medicinal waters: drinks, showers, mud treatments, massages, etc.  

Discounts for people over 55 and 60

Many of the spas you'll find in these complexes offer discounts for people over 55 or 60. The programmes that they offer usually include accommodation for several nights, full board, thermal circuits with mineral-medicinal waters designed to improve your health (for example, to relieve muscle pain), massages, and sometimes they include free appointments with a doctor. You'll even find that some of them have recovery rooms for people who have recently had an operation. Most spas also offer additional activities like playing golf, organised outings or visits to museums, wineries or places selling typical products. And at the spa you can do activities such as yoga, postural re-education, memory games, etc. You can treat yourself and come to a spa complex to relax and get away from it all, or to celebrate a special occasion like your golden wedding anniversary. It would be a great treat on such a special day! You can get more information on spa complexes by calling +34 913643700.
