Bedford Lodge launches pop-up spa to encourage wellbeing in the workplace

The initiative is designed to encourage workers to view their wellbeing as a priority

The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel has launched a pop-up wellbeing spa service to local businesses – in order to boost mental health in the workplace.

Therapists will visit local companies to illustrate the importance of taking breaks throughout the working day, as well as offer a range of mini spa treatments designed to improve mood and productivity.

Treatments on offer include Indian head massage to relieve tension, a hand and arm massage to alleviate finger and hand aches from working on a computer, and mini-foot treatments for those who work on their feet.

The initiative is based on research which suggests that taking regular breaks, for workers to rest or experience a treatment, can spark creativity and problem solving, boost the immune system, improve sleep quality and reduce overall stress, and is designed to encourage workers to view treatments as a vital part of self-care, rather than as a luxury.

Rebecca Randall, spa manager at Bedford Lodge, said: "We are excited to be taking our expertise out of the spa and into the workplaces in our local community. We are all guilty of occasionally putting our work as the top priority in our lives, so we feel it is important that we are reminding busy workers to put their health and wellbeing first."
