The metro, noise ... Paris can sometimes be a stressful city. Luckily, the French capital offers plenty of possibilities for recharging one’s batteries and staying zen! Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, massages, hammams, saunas, make-up and hair salons help you to replenish your body and mind. A countless number of beauty institutes, spas and well-being centres ranging from the accessible to the luxurious can be found in all areas of the city. As well as the treatments offered, the calming, relaxing atmosphere and decor of these places are sure to ease away all of your stress, aches and pains. Sport is the perfect way to ensure physical and mental well-being. Indoors or in the open air, alone or in a group, in trendy fitness centres, modern municipal facilities or outdoors, there is something for all tastes and budgets. Well-being is also connected to diet and there are plenty of restaurants with gastronomic menus based around organic and vegetarian produce. Even those on a detox diet can find lots to tempt them, while maintaining a trim figure. As for shopping, ethical, sustainable and natural products reign supreme in stores selling well-being and environmentally-friendly products. Such stores are increasingly popular and sell everything from cosmetics to clothes, beauty care products to healthy food.
