Be Well: New Spa and Bath Culture and the Art of Well Being
In my quest to create a peaceful, home spa; this book is the ultimate inspiration. Featuring spas from all over the world.
"One of life's greatest pleasures is a day spent rejuvenating the body and nourishing the spirit. Humans have practiced self-care for centuries-in the sweat lodges of the American Southwest, Roman baths, the hammams of the Ottoman Empire, Japanese onsens, and Finnish saunas. Today, a new interest in self-care is redefining how we accomplish wellness, and there have never been more options. In our increasingly switched-on lives, a growing industry of highly choreographed experiences is geared to help us switch off. Written by beauty and wellness journalist Kari Molvar, a regular contributor to the New York Times and Vogue, Be Well is a journey around the world's most extraordinary spaces for achieving this, looking at the innovative practices they offer and how to carry them into everyday life."
