Five treatments to enjoy at an Oxford spa

Once you’ve found your ideal spa in Oxford, it’s time to talk treatments! Many of our spa packages include one or more treatments chosen by you from a menu of options. The choices will vary, depending on the spa day or spa break. However, here are a few great options you might have the opportunity to enjoy:

  • Back, neck and shoulders massage: A traditional, lighter-touch spa massage that is wonderful for easing tight muscles and melting away built up tension.
  • Body scrub: Also referred to as a body polish, this indulgent treatment uses a natural, gentle exfoliant to leave your skin soft and glowing, from head to toe.
  • Head massage: One of the speciality massages offered at selected Oxford spas, this is a relaxing treat that is great for guests who are a bit anxious about undressing or having their body massaged.
  • Spa manicure: A classic spa favourite, this is a luxurious treatment that pampers the hands and fingers, while leaving your nails and cuticles in tip-top shape.
  • Tailored facial: There are lots of spa facials, each of which involve similar stages but differ in the choice of products used, in order to target different skin types and issues.
