SPA is very particular about the use of products.

It has the functions of cleaning, moisturizing, activating and repairing. Products; the second is to promote blood circulation, soothing nerves, to achieve detoxification, anti-aging, worry, calm and other effects of a variety of aromatic oil products.

Spas are part of the spa, such as hot sea surf, jacuzzi, capsules, etc. These include spa treatments: spa, oil massage, yoga, meditation, facials, body care and more.

Each of these forms of bath is a simple spa. (Complicated points are yoga in the water, rehabilitation in the water, meditation in the water, etc.).
