As times have changed, so too has quality of life. Today, we're living longer and feeling better than ever thanks to the exciting advancements in the name of health and wellbeing. In case you haven't heard, there are a host of fascinating new treatments available and we've rounded up a few of our favorites from around the globe to help you look and feel your best, while enjoying a luxurious experience.

Scotland's renowned Gleneagles Hotel may be known for their golf courses, but their Spa by ESPA goes above and beyond traditional pampering. If you're one of the many who suffer from sleep deprivation, you may want to book a stay at their Sleep More Program. Procedures include a melatonin profile to gain insight into your circadian rhythm and an adrenal stress profile for a proper analysis that will get you sleeping like a baby again.

If you're simply looking to facilitate an active lifestyle in between spa treatments, Florblanca in Costa Rica is the place for you. After morning yoga on the beach, you can ride the legendary waves of Playa Hermosa before treating yourself to a Costa Rican Coffee Scrub. This delectable full body exfoliation is composed of aromatic coffee beans, Vitamin E and olive oil that will remove dead skin and hydrate new skin cells.

Taking the term "medi-spa" to new levels, Switzerland's world-class Clinique La Prairie resort and spa offers one stop shopping from spa treatments to complete inhouse cosmetic surgery. With doctors on staff, they will oversee the procedures and recuperation at their state-of-the-art facility overlooking Lake Léman and the Alps. From the operating suites to the newly opened wellness center, everything here epitomizes Swiss luxury. The top-tier team of doctors provide a range of procedures, be it rhinoplasty or liposculpture, to turn a traditionally uncomfortable experience into one of unsurpassed comfort.

For those who want to cleanse the mind and body, head to Absolute Sanctuary in Koh Samui, Thailand for some serious detox. Their Living Foods Detox will leave you feeling revitalized after spending your days consuming only raw foods and shots of "Good Green Stuff" (their words) in between yoga and meditation.

We haven't yet found the Fountain of Youth, but the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris has a pretty good alternative in the meantime. The Samadara Ultimate Age- Defying Facial by Sodashi uses a sequence of anti-ageing techniques rooted in ayurvedic healing traditions to increase firmness and elasticity, massaged into the skin using rose quartz crystals — now that's how you get a healthy glow!

When everyday stress begins to take its toll and slow you down, Viva Mayr is the ultimate place to get your groove back. Set along the shores of the Wörthersee, one of Austria's most pristine alpine lakes, the Vitality Program will get you feeling healthier, fitter and re-energized in a matter of days. It's not just massages and therapeutic baths, but such treatments as a Mei├čner-Pöthig scan, which analyzes 45 different health parameters including sensory functions and proportion of active muscle cell mass, and hyperthermia treatment for detoxification.

At The Farm at San Benito you'll find a broad range of offerings in the Philippine jungle. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, their advanced medical services include a Liver & Gallblader Flush to improve the digestive process, remove toxins from the body and address cholesterol problems. A center for holistic healing, The Farm will leave your mind, body and spirit recharged and ready for the real world.
