Do I need to go to a Sleep ‘Spa’? If you feel the necessity to go on a break billed as something like an ‘insomniacs retreat and sleep disorders boot- camp spa therapy weekend’, you should understand you’re your usually sleep better when you are in relaxing environment, so the mere act of going to a spa for a couple of days and having massages, body scrubs, relaxing by the pool etc. will help you sleep better, temporarily. However, your life is not one long spa weekend, so this improvement in your sleep should not be taken as evidence of effectiveness of the ‘sleep advice/therapy’ received. Only if when you go back to your normal life the advice helps you constantly sleep better can the advice be said to be effective, but then in that case the expensive ‘boot-camp’ would not have been necessary, the advice would have worked without it.
