You can go anywhere for a massage, but when in Britain, guests can be treated to unique services. The Guardian created a list of spas to check out, and these were the top five most interesting services. 

1. Spa at Ye Olde Bell

Treatment: Breathe and Detox Haloir Experience

This treatment offers guests a full body and mind experience. Guests will inhale the salty air to open airways while infrared heat is used to ease muscle and joint pain. It also includes chromatherapy. The benefits include: reduce stress and fatigue, ease joints, boost immune system and detoxifies the skin.

2. Kimpton Blythswood Square

Treatment: Thermal Experience

This journey includes six rooms with different features. For tired and aching joints, guests can visit the hydrotherapy and vitality pools which include body and floor jets. Guest then indulge in the laconium which is a tilted room with warmed benches as well as a tepidarium, a dry, tepid room close to the body's temperature. Other rooms include a sauna, saunarium, steam room and ice fountain.

3. Tor Spa Retreat

Treatment: Sparkling Eyes

This 30 minute treatment focuses solely on the eye area. For a specialized TLC, the treatment works to smooth away fine lines, reduce puffiness and dark circles.

4. The Ned- Cowshed Spa & Grooming

Treatment: Dermalux at Cowshed

The Dermalux uses a non-invasive light emitting diode (LED) phototherapy designed to promote tissue regeneration and healing, reduce inflammation and relieve pain caused by dermatological conditions. Dermalux does not use heat or chemicals, instead the treatment uses three types of wavelengths: red, blue and near infrared, which can be delivered individually or simultaneously.

5. Bodysgallen Hall

Treatment: Bioslimming Wrap Hourglass

The Bioslimming treatment is a paraben-free fat burning and slimming body wrap, enhancing weight loss and firms and tones the skin. This burns calories for two hours after application and continues working for 12 hours after treatment.
