Spas & Wellness

Nelson is home to an impressive number of spas, yoga studios, alternative medical treatments and other healing arts and wellness centres. People here like to play hard, and then relax and take care of themselves.
The larger hotels have in-house spas, (including the popular Shalimar at the Prestige Lakeside Resort ) and there are studios all over town offering everything from aromatherapy to acupuncture.
Ask the locals for recommendations – they're happy to offer directions or help – or stop in at the Visitor Centre for other tips.
