Medical Spas are quite a bit different from a Day Spa, in that they offer
true medical procedures supervised by licensed medical practitioners. They
are also different from Medical Clinics in that they provide a much more
relaxed atmosphere and offer complimenting, electoral procedures in a
single day instead of the "one off" focus of a Medical Clinic.

>From a perspective of consumers attempting to discover local businesses, I
would definitely consider a Medical Spa different from a Medical Clinic and
Day Spa, but from a perspective of Schema, I support Mark's approach to
defining the business with multiple Types as it more clearly communicates
the categories in which the entity fits.
