National Spa Week is to take place this year as from 4th
November with an all new 360 approach. A new trade-only campaign, educational and value-added content has been crafted by handpicked industry and outside industry experts, as they offer their insight into seven topical subjects, under the over-arching challenge of "Workplace Wellness".
Differing daily content will be shared to our members via podcast discussions, articles and video.
Some experts we’d like to thank include:
Leigh Fell, Founder & Chief Executive of Caritas Neuro Solutions Ltd,
trained in various types of emotional wellbeing coaching including CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), Harmonising (mindfulness based self-confidence coaching), NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and mental health first aid. Leigh is also the first person in the UK to roll out ‘Bloom’ resilience training in schools, which is a project run by Mental Health UK and Support in Mind Scotland and funded by Lloyds bank, training young people how to cope with normal day to day life challenges and stressors.
Our thanks also to Iain R Bell of Executive Fitness Foundation.

It was our pleasure to also speak with Lopo Champalimaud, CEO of Treatwell
, the largest hair & beauty booking service in the world (except for Japan)!
