A spa experience can mean different things to different people, but they are generally meant to improve health and wellness through mind-body relaxation and stress management therapy. In a special Day Spa vs. Destination Spa breakdown, Spahub describes the difference between the two experiences for spa goers looking for their best option.

For some spa goers, a quick pick-me-up after a long week is all it takes to reach their haven of relaxation. But for others, a well deserved total immersion is in order for those who wish to soak in the spa lifestyle over a few days, possibly weeks. The difference, according to Spahub, is the length of stay as well as the programs the two offers.

Part of what creates a Day spa experience includes the type of treatments they offer. Day spas offer anything from a soothing massage to a cleansing facial or detoxifying body treatment. Guests take with them a holistic experience shedding their problems and achieving an ultimate state of relaxation in a period of a day without the need of an extended stay.
