Make a date in the diary for National Spa Week: 10 – 17 September 2018
National Spa Week 2018 kicks off in September with Spabreaks.com taking the reigns as the official booking partner of the UK Spa Association’s annual celebration of the spa industry and the benefits it provides the public.
The week commences on 10 September and is a celebration of all things ‘spa’ with an intention to encourage more people into more spas, more often. With a focus on inclusivity, the week will also highlight spas which welcome visitors undergoing cancer treatment, who are blind or with other disabilities, while also showcasing spa packages for men, couples, groups and more at venues across the UK.
Throughout the week participating spas will be offering discounts from 20% on treatments and packages and special ‘friend goes free’ deals. Furthermore those booking a spa day or break during National Spa Week will also receive a complimentary NailsInc nail polish*. Details of these will be available soon at spaweek.co.uk.
Commenting on the launch Abi Wright, founder of Spabreaks.com, said: “We are delighted to have joined forces with the UK Spa Association to become the official booking partner for National Spa Week. It’s an exciting opportunity to raise the profile of the spa industry as a whole and remove perceptions that spas are an exclusive unattainable luxury. Spas are for everyone, from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes, and this campaign will massage that message!”
Lisa Barden, vice chair for the UK Spa Association said “As the country’s only official spa industry trade body, everything we do is designed to champion the contribution that our spa’s make to the nation’s health and wellness, not to mention the contribution to the UK economy.
“There is a clear opportunity for our industry to grow and thrive because modern day wellness issues such as sick days (taken through a deep seated lack of sleep) and working longer hours (that keep us more alert and ‘tuned in’), which in turn creates an environment where poorer lifestyle decisions are taken such as self medicating, increased alcohol consumption, poor dietary choices and choosing to zone out in front of the TV/screen rather than take exercise and spend time with friends & family.
We estimate that there are currently 60k trained therapists and spa staff who are currently only taking care of 8% of the UK population. We created National Spa Week as a high profile campaign to drive this growth opportunity in our sector. And now with big industry hitters Spabreaks.com and Lumity on-board, we are confident that we are going to see the campaign skyrocket this year!
National Spa Week is also partnered with Lumity, the health and beauty brand that offers a unique two step supplement of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids and amino acids designed to maintain optimum health, energy and radiance.
