The Japanese Onsen (traditional mineral spring bathhouse), the Turkish Hammam, the Finnish Sauna and others like banya, temazcal, sweat lodges are all group purification ceremonies with extensive and often spiritual traditions. When we think of spa today it is often an individual endeavor to a special destination to achieve longevity and optimal health. A spa at home is conceptual and it helps to think of the origins of the word spa -  an acronym of the Latin phrase Salus per aquam which translates as “health through water”. Some historians believe it was originally coined in the Roman Empire inscribed on the walls of ancient Roman baths. The term could also have come from the Latin espargere, which means to pour or sprinkle. Knowing that even a sprinkle of water can become a spa in its original sense should encourage you to take the leap.

The ultimate goal is to recharge the simple act of the daily shower, lighting a candle, washing hands, caring for the skin and soaking in the bath. Knowing the physical and emotional power behind these acts and reconsidering each as a kind of practice not only transcends routine and habit but comes full circle to the origins of spa which is purification in preparation for awe. Here at spa at home you need nothing more than a fresh perspective and hot running water. We provide detailed protocols, sublime product suggestions and draw from traditional modalities to script a guided course toward overall wellbeing.

 In good health.
