There is also a salt and oxygen room with a back wall made from salt bricks and heavy, polished white oval-shaped seats, and a wooden infrared therapy cabin that delivers a targeted deep heat treatment along the spine to relieve stressed muscles and joints. Additional rooms are for medical consulting, pressotherapy (a detoxifying leg treatment involving special boots), salt steam inhalation, with glowing amber tiles fitted into a wooden accent wall, and colonic irrigation. The dark, plush relaxation room marks the end to the guest’s journey and features six heated waterbeds to allow them to completely relax while sipping a Thalgo organic tea.
Although clients on traditional pampering packages undeniably make up a sizeable chunk of Champneys’s business, the resort is also popular with those seeking serious health and weight-loss benefits. 20 exercise classes run every day at Tring, and clients can embark on several different âœboot campâ or nutrition programmes, with the option of taking a food sensitivity test or visiting the onsite Doctor Now service. The detox and wellbeing centre offers more for these types of clients and invites them to complete their wellness experience with treatments designed to help detox the skin, improve circulation, and firm and tone the body. âœWe’re not a hotel with a spa; we’re a spa primarily, a destination health resort,â states Purdew.
He is keen to emphasise that the detox and wellbeing centre is the only one of its kind in the UK. âœYou come for general wellbeing,â he says. âœEverybody needs to detox; everybody needs to get those knots out of their back…everybody can benefit from that cleansing that detoxing does.â
