Spa therapy can refer to a water treatment, as in a hot tub or spa. Or it can refer to any number of wellness treatments available at a spa.
Massage therapy is one of those treatments. There are many types of massage therapy, but all involve rubbing and manipulating the muscles to reduce tension.

Spa therapy - water treatment, as in a hot tub or spa. Or it can refer to any number of wellness treatments available at a spa.
Massage therapy is one of those treatments. There are many types of massage therapy, but all involve rubbing and manipulating the muscles to reduce tension. Swedish massage is the most common, or "classic" massage therapy, but Shiatsu, hot stone, and Thai massage are other common types.
Other kinds of treatments available at a spa include "holistic" treatments, such as Ayurvedic treatments and yoga style classes, that address both the body and the mind or emotions Most are based in Eastern medical and spiritual philosophies.
