National Spa Week gets underway

The 11th National Spa Week starts today (November 2) and will run until Friday, November 6, with spas across the UK hosting events and special offers.

The week, organised by the UK Spa Association, is designed to raise consumer awareness of the benefits of regular spa treatments. The concept is based on the statistic that only 8% of the UK population has ever been to a spa.

Spas involved in the 2015 activities include Ragdale Hall (pictured), Oxford Belfry and the Virgin Active group.

Some beauty salons have also signed up to take part, including Sans Souci Beauty & Hair in Reigate and Vanilla Moon in Eastcombe, Gloucestershire.

Some of the offers available include a “Penny for your Guy” promotion at Rockliffe Hall spa in Darlington, where guests can book one spa day and get a second for a penny, and a free Espa gift worth £15 for guests booking a Q Hotels Ritual treatment at The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort in Cumbernauld.
