To be a Spa or not a Spa in Cheltenham

If you’ve visited Cheltenham Reflexology and Massage before you will know that we don’t really identify as a ‘Day Spa’.  

We don’t have a swimming pool or cafe to visit and the ethos that we have is more of that of a clinic. Our aims are to relax, restore and then go further, by offering relief of uncomfortable symptoms.  We often see clients with headaches, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, sleep disturbances, symptoms or stress, shoulder and back problems and so much more. Of course we are happy to provide treatment for pure relaxation but often our clients choose to visit us for so much more.

Like a spa though, we do offer longer packages of treatment that really remove you from the real world, instead cocooning you in the the warmth of our treatment spaces and in the care of qualified and professional therapists, who really are invested in your wellbeing. The 3-hour, Deluxe Stress Buster is our longest appointment and includes your choice of 3 treatments from a Facial, Reflexology, Massage and Pedicure. There is also a 15 minute comfort break where you will be offered a hot or cold drink, whilst having your feet soaked in a warming Dead Sea salt foot bath.

A ‘Spa‘ can be defined as an establishment that provides relaxation through the provision of treatments and beauty, so maybe you do see Cheltenham Reflexology and Massage as a spa?  It doesn’t really matter, as long as you know that we are here to offer bespoke treatments to you to help you feel better, brighter and looked after.


So… what’s the point in a ‘Spa’ or relaxing environment anyway?…

The Federation of Holistic Therapists recently presented the results of a survey, looking into the impact of Complementary Therapies on health…

‘The survey showed a significant increase in the positive effects of complementary therapy, including a 37% reduction in doctors’ visits.’
In the survey, the FHT asked therapist and their clients to specify how complementary therapies have helped their wellbeing, ‘with over 86% of respondents reporting an improvement in health and 95% claiming they would use the therapy again.’
