Lifestyle in AgraAgra has since long been an established commercial centre and a tourist destination. The basic health promoting facilities that have burgeoned in Agra in the past few decades are many and varied. The number of such institutions like spas, gyms, beauty parlours, ayurvedic treatment centres and dietary and fitness advice centres have all probably come up over the years because of the increased commercialized outlook of the average Agra dweller.

Spas in AgraThese are a well laid out facility in Agra. There are however, two differences in the types of spa services are one offer. Firstly there are the traditional forms of massages and body treatments as per the Panchkarma or Ayurvedic style. Then there are the modern spas with all forms of massages taken from the Greek and Mediterranean forms of body relaxation and treatment methodologies. The most sublime among these two however, is the Japanese form of massage which is rare when some authentic practitioner is available to render the services.
The Al-Sehat Spa is located at the Wyndham Grand in Agra and is the ultimate in the spa experience. Combining the aesthetic environment with the vast range of therapies that include the Ayurvedic, the Swedish and the Thai massage therapies.

Similarly the Oberoi Spas have also taken up the provision of a memorable experience to the spa as their hallmark as they have attempted to combine the best practices of the eastern and western worlds. They have gone a step further towards the fusion of the traditional methods of healing and the present day concept of rejuvenation through meditation and relaxation of the mind and the body. Thus, the Agra dweller has been given the unique ability to enjoy both the worlds simultaneously and incorporate them successfully into their lifestyle.
