Sanus per Aquam

Sanus per Aquam – or health by water – is said to be the origin of the word Spa. Another variation is the Latin verb spagere which means to scatter, sprinkle or moisten. The term stretches back to the Roman era where tired soldiers discovered the benefits of soaking their weary limbs in warm thermal spring waters.

Today we think of a Spa as a place of regeneration but one which is more likely to be frequented by ladies than gents. The emphasis of a modern spa is also more likely to focus on beauty rather than just health, although relaxation is at the core of a Spa treatment.

The end result of a Spa treatment is intended to make the recipient rested, relaxed and often more beautiful than when they entered the salon. Natural products, professional application and soothing oils and unguents are all aimed at creating a finished sensation that is both calming and beautifying.

The Beauty Boutique

Here at the Beauty Boutique at Rathwood we like to mix up our offerings to sooth the insides and the outsides. Take our Afternoon Delight offer for example. Here we allow our guests to enjoy a fabulous range of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and chose from a selection of handmade desserts. Served with tea or coffee this allows friends to bond over healthy, homemade goodies before opting for a 30 minutes treatment which can be a Muscle Melting Back Massage or a Dermalogical Express Facial. And all for just €45 per person.

Or maybe you are heading out to a party and want a little pick me up? Why not chose our Party Essentials Package for just €45. This entitles you to our Gelish fingers and toes treatment combined with a Bellaminta Full Body Spray tan. You will look a million dollars by the team you leave the Beauty Boutique.

So the next time you want to be healthy by water, pop over to Rathwood and indulge yourself in our Spa. You know you are worth it!
