BEAUTY & WELLNESS -
Wellness in Umbria
Umbria’s various centres dispensing beauty and wellness are largely immersed in the region’s green, restful countryside, not far from the art-filled cities and picturesque fortified hamlets that attract discerning tourists from all over the world. Equipped with all modern comforts and facilities, these wellness centres offer a form of relaxation that is closely tied to the natural environment – they are places where you will be able to truly unwind and escape the frantic pace of contemporary city living.
Although a relatively recent travel phenomenon, wellness centres are growing in popularity as an alternative form of holiday, particularly among the young. Prices do not always cater for this clientele, however, even though a number of centres are beginning to offer low cost packages aimed at those who wish to make use of all the facilities without actually sleeping on site. The various treatment on offer at a wellness centre, from massages to relaxation using essential oils, spa circuits etc, require a high degree of training for the staff involved. But ultimately the goal is to pamper the client into a state of wellbeing, maybe even making him or her look a few years younger in the process.
Technological innovation is an important aspect of this particular branch of tourism, with centres required to keep abreast of new developments in order to ensure that their clients can enjoy the latest in terms of regeneration for body and soul:
Wellness packages, beauty treatments for body and face
Deals with spa centres for specific treatments
Fitness and sport programmes
Walks, bike tours, wine and food itineraries
