The Best Spas in North London

Gone are the days where a day at the spa was a place for just the girls to relax with a facemask on and gossip. Now, spas are a place where you can not only relax and de-stress, but also gear yourself up for that next big training session at our Islington studio!

Although not all spa treatments are going to help you get back to your athletic best (show me a face mask that can do that!), if you pick and choose your treatments you’ll be feeling your best in no time.

It isn’t just the physical relaxation treatments and massages that can help with your performance though. Treatments that are designed to help you de-stress can also leave you feeling refreshed and ready to attack that next gym session!

Here are three spas around London that can do wonders for your body and mind!

Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre

Based at the Hotel Café Royal in Piccadilly Circus, Akasha Spa has a number of different types of massages that can loosen up those tight muscles that you’ve just smashed at the gym.

With experiences ranging from reflexology, to focus massages and the spa treatment staple of a hot stone massage as well as an extensive range of hydrotherapy treatments, you can find the perfect muscle loosening activity.

Although it’s on the more expensive side, Akasha spa is well worth a look.

Rated as the “best city spa” by Natural Health Magazine, this spa is located in the old steam kitchens underneath the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel which was established way back in 1873.

Located right above St Pancras Station and easily reachable on any of yhr Victoria, Northen and Piccadilly Underground lines, it is incredibly easy to get to.

Offering a number of massage treatments, including an intensive muscle release designed to soothe muscles that have been worked hard at the gym, as well as sauna and hydrotherapy treatments, there is something for every gym junkie here!

Spa Experience
With spas located in Bethnal Green, Kensington, Old Street, Swiss Cottage, Waltham Forest and Welwyn Garden City there is bound to be a spa experience near you.

More appropriate for the spa lovers on a budget, price does not necessarily reflect quality. With all the facilities and treatments of some of the pricier spas around London, you can easily jump in a sauna, steam room or a pool to help ease those aching muscles, as well as pampering yourself with some great massage treatments.
