Five treatments to enjoy at our Chester spa hotels
Complement your Chester spa break or spa day with a pampering treatment. Many of our packages will feature inclusive treatments or a menu of options from which you can choose. Depending on the venue and package, your choices might include:
- Facial: One of the most popular spa treatments, a luxurious spa facial is a real treat, promising some wonderfully relaxing downtime, as the therapist cleanses, exfoliates and moisturises the face and neck, while addressing any specific skin issues that may be of concern.
- Deep-tissue massage: Not for the fainthearted, this robust massage works deep into knotted muscles and connective tissue. For something gentler, opt for the Swedish massage, full-body massage, or back, neck and shoulders massage, which use lighter pressure.
- Hot stones massage: Offered on selected packages at our Chester spa hotels, this specialist massage incorporates smooth black basalt stones which are heated and then glided across the skin by the massage therapist to warm and relax the muscles.
- Spa manicure / pedicure: A familiar favourite among spa-goers, these treatments go beyond just giving the nails some TLC to include a wonderful hand or foot massage and care for the cuticles before the nails are shaped and (optionally) polish is applied.
- Body exfoliation: Also referred to as a body polish or body scrub, this indulgent full-body treatment improves the look and feel of the skin, employing a natural exfoliant to smooth away dead cells to reveal the glowing, healthy skin beneath.
