Bath in a spa (c) by Dennis Wong
There are few things that are as relaxing as a trip to a spa. Spas are one of the few places in today’s hectic world where time seems to slow to a crawl.
Many spa treatments have been scientifically proven to relieve stress and anxiety. Helsinki has several exceptional spas to offer residents and tourists alike. The following is a list of four of the best pampering destinations in Helsinki.
Flamingo Spa is located in Vantaa quite near the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, but also easily reachable by bus from the Main Railway Station. It has six separate saunas, a mineral and warm water pool, a beautiful salt room and heated relaxation areas. Guests of the Flamingo Spa can spend four hours enjoying the luxurious surroundings after their treatments are finished. There is a fully licensed restaurant at the Flamingo Spa, in addition to the facility’s waterpark. The waterpark’s pools and slides are available to all of Flamingo Spa’s customers.
Helsinki Day Spa
The Helsinki Day Spa is the ideal location for someone who wants a truly customizable spa experience. Four massages ranging from 20 to 80 minutes in length are just one group of services offered at the Helsinki Day Spa. Additional treatments include specialized therapies, body scrubs, facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing and more. One of Helsinki Day Spa’s most unique treatments is an eyelash decoration made of Swarovski crystals.
Imagine Day Spa
The Imagine Day Spa uses cutting-edge technology, such as face mapping, to determine the ideal treatment for each client. This spa’s other advanced services include sugaring for hair removal and Ionithermie skin cleaning. Several treatments, including LaStone therapy, are available as additions to a basic facial. The Imagine Day Spa prides itself on using only holistic beauty products.
Finnair Lounge & Spa
When people think about the ideal spa location, an airport is one of the last places they would consider. The Finnair Lounge & Spa, located in the Helsinki Vantaa Airport, may change that. Few spas in the world offer underwater audio in mineral water pools. The Finnair Spa is one of them. This location also has four different saunas, organic beauty products and complimentary refreshments. Access to the spa area is included with the purchase of any well-being treatment. The Finnair Spa has a full range of treatments available, from hand massages to a traditional hamam and everything in between.
