Five Relaxing Spas that Will Soothe Your Mind and Soul

Returning home from a stressful day at the office or a weekend of helping a friend with a lot of heavy furniture move, slipping into a relaxing spa is just the thing to relax those tight and sore muscles.  While just about any spa would do that chore, a luxurious one that is candy for the eyes relaxes the mind and helps you unwind.

Imagine arriving home to this wonderful pool and spa combination.  A touch of the remote and the spa and waterfall magically appear.  Silently slip into the water in the spacious pool for a few laps to stretch out the muscles.  Dive beneath the surface and take the underwater tunnel to the magic spa to have your body gently pummeled into submission while watching and listening to the waterfall.

After a day of dealing with the hustle and bustle of the downtown city life, a well-deserved rest is just what the doctor ordered.  Imagine looking out over the cityscape in the dark watching the twinkling lights as you soak away your cares.  After your limbs are relaxed, you can read a magazine as a cool summer breeze soothes your skin.

Bring back the country feel of swimming in a water tower, even if you are afraid of heights.  This rustic spa transplants the country into the shore with a sand-pebble beach feel.  Looking at the scrub brush and the desert plants, you can also imagine you are at your own private oasis.  Then imagine combining them all together for the full-impact release to knock out your inner stress.
