      The origin of the word spa dates back to 16th-century Belgium. Physicians then suggested to those with an iron deficiency to drink spring water from mineral springs. The idea for treating disease with medicinal baths and the intake of healing herbs came shortly thereafter. Spas have evolved into pampering establishments beneficial for both the body and soul. They are ideal places to gather with friends or experience solitary stress relief and self-renewal. In Toronto, there are many spas in all sections of the city.
