UK Spa Association

News and views from the UK Spa Association

Are you ready for this increasingly popular trend?

It is the beginning of the summer holidays and the Brooks family are planning their summer holiday. Dad works as a plumber seven days a week on call 24 hours, and mum works as a part time medical receptionist. The weekends are taken up with weekend activities for the children.

Mum and dad are exhausted and really could do with a spa holiday like they used to have before they were married and the family came along, however, how would they be able to have great spa treatments without the children’s constant demands?

The amazing thing about today's industry is that spas, hotels country houses and urban spas from one end of the country to the other and world wide have woken up to the needs of family orientated spas. Many spas world wide now offer family spa facilities with suitable treatments for teenagers, children’s clubs where an area is provided to entertain the children and supervised professional childminders, and even for young babies and toddlers there are crèches. That way mum and dad can have that amazing, relaxing wellness spa treatment experience in peace.

When considering family spa days in your establishment, it is important to bear in mind that you may need to ensure it meets the legal regulations of your premises, including health and safety and public liability insurance. If dealing with minors make sure you meet all the requirements. Remember also to consider your other clients and their needs so it may be something you have once a month or every other month.

DISCOVER THE STRENGTH OF COLOURS FOR BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT!

SOFRI Energy Cosmetics is a perfect combination of cosmeceutical products with a holistic concept of Colour Energy.

SOFRI has discovered the beautifying, energising effects of colours on body, mind and spirit for holistic cosmetology, and building on from that has created a unique care system of 7 colours based on chakra teachings.

The Colour Energy concept by SOFRI not only touches and beautifies your skin, but also the very core of you. Premium quality nourishing compositions use colour energy against emotional stress, release blockages, increase energy levels and your zest for life.

Chakra teachings observe and understand the individual holistically – physiologically, psychologically and energetically. If there is disharmony in chakras (energy centres along the centre axis of the body), this is usually evident on skin. Here, colours are able to balance out these energy deficits in the chakras.

The products are combined with each other in a colour mosaic – to match your individual treatment requirements.

April 7th: World Health Day. Let's Talk.

The 7th April is World Health Day. Being in the spa, health and wellness industry, it's good time for us to talk.

A time for us to give advice on health and wellbeing. Could we use the knowledge of experts within our spa to share tips and information? Or perhaps we just want to share a quote or blog post on World Health Day.

Quite often, we can all get caught up in a busy world. Working, looking after others, being available to demanding technologies, and so on. Time passes and we may not notice that we've not been giving as much care and time for ourselves. It can be hard work trying to find time to switch off, take time out, time for exercise, to get out in the open, and prepare healthy foods. Plus, the pressure to do all this may feel strong. Being in the health and wellness industry, we probably have more knowledge and experience on ways to work on this. This is where we can share with our audience on World Health Day.

The theme for World Health Day this year is depression. 'A common mental disorder that is increasing worldwide. Between 1990 and 2013, the number of people suffering from depression and/or anxiety increased by nearly 50%. Close to 10% of the world’s population is affected by one or both of these conditions. Depression increases the risk of other noncommunicable diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Yet, it is also something that can be prevented and treated.' (www.who.int).
