LUX Hotel & Spa Awards 2016 72 LUX - Hotel & Spa Awards 2016 Best Hair & Beauty Spa 2016 - Kirklees Best Hair & Beauty Spa 2016 - Kirklees As a company who has been trading for almost 100 years, Soul Spa is one of Birstall’s most original and well established salons. We spoke to Angie Crowther, Director of Soul Spa, to find out how they provide a unique experience for their clients. HOS160005 Soul Spa Although the business has been running for decades, it was re-launched as a boutique hair and beauty spa in July 2013 after relocating to the pre -18th century period cottage it now stands in. Previously used as a dairy, a bank and a former doctor’s residence, the beautiful cottage is situated right in the very heart of Birstall, standing on the edge of the market place. We were initially called ‘Highlights Hair & Beauty’ and this has always been the forefront of the business for the past 24 years. However, as the business has significantly evolved within the last three years, I feel that now is the right time to rebrand and have taken the decision to rename to ‘Soul Spa’. An integral part of this transition is due to the advanced deep healing treatments offered within the spa, which provide a very unique visit. Holistic therapies and reiki healing have always been a part of the business and these are now playing a much bigger role, with more and more clients booking these services. These therapies are incredibly useful for help with stress, anxiety and depression amongst other illnesses. We offer an unrivalled range of traditional treatments, natural therapies and holistic facials, and we offer these for both ladies and gentlemen. The spa has become a unique healing spa, which was always the intention – as the business plan changed when my own grandmother became terminally ill shortly prior to the purchase of the cottage. Ultimately, my aim is to ensure that my clients have a memorable experience in a warm and welcoming environment, providing comfort and reassurance to those experiencing illness or stress throughout difficult times. Counselling and stress management techniques are at times called upon. As well as giving aura and chakra readings at the end of treatments. The business follows its very own path of a very spiritual spa, totally unique in its making.
