Spa Services while on Vacation

About 5 years ago, if you went on vacation and wanted to pamper yourself with a massage or spa treatments you would have to look to find a Spa in the area of your accommodations. A couple of years ago some luxury inns started a Spa on site. Today there is another option. Today even the smallest B&B can bring the Spa to you with services at the B&B or even in the privacy of your guest room. I'll bet you never thought you could find a Spa or Spa Services in the world's largest Amish community. Well guess again! One such example is at Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast in Holmes County, Ohio. The B&B works with a private Spa who will bring couples massages, a variety of individual massages, and mini-services for bachelorette parties and girls get aways right to the B&B. Guests who really want to pamper themselves can book the Garden Gate Suite with a Jacuzzi and fireplace and receive massages right in their guest room. Guests staying in standard guest rooms can receive the services in a newly designated Spa room which is located on a veranda style porch over looking the beautiful countryside. While it is best to book these kinds of services in advance to insure availability, the innkeepers will also try to make last minute arrangements after you have checked in. Sometimes with just 4 hours notice they can bring the Spa to you! Some lodging establishments will arrange for just relaxation massages or Swedish massages. These services are sometimes delivered by someone with a certificate in massage and others are delivered by a licensed massage therapist. If the guest has a preference they should be sure to ask. The Spa at Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast offers both types. Some spas offer wellness massages and programs or use Chinese techniques. There is quite a variety of the kinds of massages that you can receive.
