Interview with Spa Director at The Spa at The Midland

How long have you been in the spa industry?

I've worked in the spa industry for over 10 years. I've been at The Spa at The Midland since May 2015, just before we opened in June 2015.

 

How does it feel to have opened The Spa at The Midland?

It's been a fantastic opportunity to be apart an incrediable team to open The Spa at The Midland. This has truly been one of the most exciting projects I have been involved in. The Midland has always been such an iconic hotel in Manchester, so as a Mancunian born and raised here. This has been a dream come true for me to be so fortunate in becoming the Director of Spa for what has been the largest urban spa project Manchester has ever seen.

 

How many customers came through the doors within the first week/month?

We performed over 200 treatments in the first week of opening! Within the first month of trading, we performed almost 1,000 facials and massages.

 

What's your favourite ESPA product?

My new favourite ESPA product is the Pro-Moisturiser that has just launched this month. It has completely replenished my skin in less than a week, its amazing.

 

What's the most popular room within the spa?

The relaxation room has been the WOW factor for our guests that have visited the spa since we opened our doors in June this year. The Cacoon's continue to be of great delight and intrigue as guests are taken through following their treatment to continue on their journey of relaxation. We have four fantastic zones in our relaxation room including big sleep, relaxation pods, time out and airtime so there really is an appeal for every guest including smaller groups.

 

If you were a customer visiting your hotel, what treatment would you recommend and why?

The ESPA Back, face and scalp treatment with hot stones is my absolute favourite treatment, its the perfect touch of top-to-toe relaxation which leaves you completely soothed and calmed. It is the perfect treatment for anyone! It includes a back exfoliation and hot stone back massage, plus a personalised facial and scalp massage - 85 minutes of indulgent bliss. 

 

What is your best spa tip?

If you're someone who needs total relaxation i'd suggest trying a hot stone massage to ease tension and soothe aching muscles. The combination of aromatherapy oils and volcanic stones relieves any deep muscle tension. The warmth of the stones penetrates your muscles further to soothe away any aches and pains; helping you to unwind. Ideal for the colder months.

How do you feel TSATM is different to any other spa within the area?
