About This Quiz

Way back in the days of Ancient Rome people knew of a town in Belgium that was called Spa. The town has natural mineral springs and these days they even export it around the world. But even back in the day it was a destination for people to go and soak in the waters or use them in other relaxation treatments. The whole concept of the modern spa came from that one town — a place to go for ultimate stress relief. These days spas are so much more than they used to be. No one in Ancient Rome ever imagined little fish exfoliating the flesh from their feet or Brazilian waxes. They probably wouldn't have even imagined body sugaring or the basics of a pedicure, either. Isn't progress amazing?

Whether you just need the simplest of massages or some kind of microdermabrasion, if you're into Korean sheet masks or some pulsed-light hair removal there's got to be one spa treatment that is "your" spa treatment. One treatment that you look forward to that can help you relax and be at ease like no other. And whether you know what it is or aren't 100% sure just yet which is the best for you, it's time to find out!
