The Guide to Massage Spa Treatments and Healing from Pearl Escapes 2017

Seven years ago I had a traditional massage in Morocco and felt the deep physical, mental and spiritual healing that can come from a great treatment. I started researching massages and spas, particularly traditional treatments from around the world; I travelled to China, Japan, Mexico, Iceland, Tuscany and tried ancient treatments in central London, then I started writing about them so that others could benefit from this research. In 2016 I experienced the most powerful healing yet, in a Native American spa in Arizona. It's all in this book. Was the healing all down to this one incredible treatment, or was it the cumulative effect of years of exploration? I don't know, but wherever you want to start, this guide to over 300 different massages and spa terms will help you plan your healing journey.
