The spa at the Oulton Hall hotel in Leeds is set to launch a new treatment menu targeting stress in the workplace after experiencing a significant increase in corporate bookings.
Expected to launch next year the new menu is designed to accommodate businesses and offer longer treatments. It will incorporate rituals and treatments from luxury spa brand ESPA, including the ESPA inner beauty facial and muscle revier, designed to leave guests relaxed with a positive mindset.
A range of group treatments, including a 120-minute total holistic body treatment, as well as yoga and pilates classes will also be on offer.
Martyn Suter, spa manager at Oulton Hall, said: We know that mental health and wellbeing are becoming increasingly important in the workplace and this has been demonstrated by the increase in our corporate spa bookings."
"Our new menu promises to facilitate this demand, taking not only the wellbeing of our clients into consideration but also our own staff," Suter added.
Helena Grzesk, general manager of the UK Spa Association, said: "Oulton Hall is really taking the five key areas of wellness - mental health, fitness, nutrition, spa treatments, and remedial and therapeutic bodywork - into its stride with its approach to wellbeing and the new menu for 2019. We encourage more spas to do the same, tailoring their menus to satisfy these demands and help support companies in implementing their wellness policies."
Mental health in the workplace is becoming more and more of a concern with findings from a recent survey, carried out by The Stress Management Society, reporting that 64 per cent of employees struggle with mental health issues relating to workplace stress. As a result, businesses are implementing mental health and wellbeing policies, and spas are creating initiatives to meet the new demand, including The Spa at Bedford Lodge in Newmarket, which recently launched a pop-up wellbeing spa service
for local businesses.
