One of the primary reasons people head out on vacation is to leave the stress and demands of everyday life behind, and while there are scores of ways to effectively relax — lay by the beach, shut off your cell phone, and take a yoga class, to name a few — one of the most popular and straightforward ways to get stress and tension to dissipate is to spend a day or afternoon at an excellent spa.
