Spa Sensations

Renowned interior designer Amanda Rosa has teamed together with ESPA to create a unique and distinctive design whilst incorporating all the requirements of a world-leading spa. From the moment you step through the magnificent double doors to the Spa, calming music and the serene atmosphere set the tone for your experience.

You can relax in the crystal steam room or hot sauna cabin and then have a refreshing ice rub or an Arctic mist shower. Skin tingling with well-being, unwind further in the unisex vitality pool with its massaging swan necked fountains. The changing rooms themselves are an indulgent space, with large power showers and limestone heated flooring. The Courtyard Garden is bathed in natural light from the glass roof and allows both male and female guests to share some time together by the gently flickering fire.

ESPA has created a selection of powerful and highly effective signature treatments for The Spa at Gleneagles that uniquely reflect a fusion of the latest scientific advances with potent European therapies, Eastern philosophy and Ayurvedic infuence.

An expert team of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioners and experienced spa therapists together create revolutionary packages to address the stresses and strains of modern lifestyles. Bespoke programmes are devised with a clear aim: to bring guests back to their optimal wellbeing.

Encompassing holistic medicine, sports injury, and personal training, they are carried out by the ESPA Life team which includes naturopaths, physiotherapists, traditional Chinese medicine acupuncturists, personal trainers and spa therapists.

The team is led by Louise Westra, a skilled naturopathic practitioner who is fundamental to every guest’s unique experience at ESPA Life. From an initial consultation, which may include a range of wellness tests, Louise advises on the appropriate combination of treatments and fitness sessions for both short and longer- term lifestyle goals. After this assessment, the naturopath reviews the information in detail and, during a second appointment, outlines a guest’s path to wellness. This may include dietary advice, recommended supplementation and lifestyle changes, or referrals to the appropriate complementary and alternative medicine, fitness or spa professionals.

Programmes include: Optimal Energy; Optimal Weight; Sleep More; Total Woman; Total Man;
Fertility & Conception; Relaxation & De-stress; Meno-ease; Fit for Golf; Detox and Action your Corporate Medical.
