It is very clear that spa days is a growing industry, and as is seen all too often within a rapidly expanding market, there is always a danger that the word ‘spa’ will become over-used and therefore not accurately reflect the service on offer. However discerning spa-goers know what they like and will go to great lengths to research carefully the facilities, treatments and services on offer before parting with their hard earned money.
The biggest growth within the spa market is in hotel spas and it seems that this will continue. All over the UK keen spa-goers are finding luxurious spas within hotels and London can boast some of the finest spas in the world which is probably why spa breaks London are becoming so popular.
Massage is one of the oldest healing arts, in fact Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use, furthermore the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians used various forms of massage for many ailments. The ancients also found the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems to be beneficial.
Many of the spas in London advocate the benefits of massage and this ancient art is accepted for many physical rehabilitation programmes, as it has been proved that massage therapy is beneficial for many chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and many more. Massage can also help to relieve the stress and tension of everyday living.
As a spa user, you may have already been told by your therapist in any of the spas London, (if indeed this is where you choose to go) that the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body is intended to reduce stress and fatigue and at the same time improve circulation and different variations of massage offer several different techniques and results.
London hotels that offer spa sessions to their guests are probably the first choice of tourists booking a stay in London, as this pastime has become part and parcel of a holiday for a large percentage of tourists. This is especially true if they regularly partake of spa sessions in their native country, as they want to try out London spas and compare the treatments offered to those they are currently getting at home.
Each spa tends to target a specific type of client, but having said that, as the market grows there has to be overlap within the sectors. The hotel spa may have the advantage by being able to offer spa treatments to day clients and club members as well as hotel guests.
A city centre hotel spa can offer an urban retreat and an oasis of escapism and calm within a hectic fast moving world, and many provide a sophisticated and chic environment, whilst offering holistic treatments.
A spokesman for Dolphin Square Spa located in the heart of Westminster said, “a stay at our spa London is very popular with business executives and allows the corporate guests to take advantage of the spa facility. The mind-set of many people is that spa clients are predominantly female but this is not the case as many male guests also enjoy sessions at the spa. We offer our clients ancient spa rituals with modern touches to deliver an authentic luxury Moroccan inspired spa that caters to the needs of the urban community”.
