"We are delighted to be able to welcome guests back to our spas. There has been a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes to ensure that all our spas are safe for both guests and staff."

Bannatyne Spas across the country have reopened (July 17) following the relaxing of lockdown restrictions.
The company has undertaken an extensive assessment of the COVID-19 infection risk to guests and staff and has made changes to its working practices to reduce the risk as far as practicable and deliver first class, professional services.
· Operating at a reduced capacity
· Pre-booked appointments
· Attending appointments alone
· Completing medical questionnaires in advance online
· Ensuring you are well on the day of the appointment
· Temperature screening at reception
· Hand sanitising stations prior to entering the Spa
· A rigorous cleaning regime is being employed in the Spa to ensure everyone’s safety, with high contact areas being sanitised after every client visit
· Time is allowed after each appointment for sanitisation of the treatment room, manicure stations, pedicure thrones and common areas of the Spa
· After each treatment, the utensils and products are sanitised
· Therapists will be wearing visors and appropriate PPE
· Guests will be asked to wear face masks
· Payment using a contactless method or by the 360 Bannatyne Wristband.
Phase one of reopening is for selected treatments only. Official regulations do not permit any facial treatments being carried out at this time and spa days are expected to be re-introduced during August.
The majority of the Bannatyne Health Clubs will open their doors to members on July 25 in line with Government guidance.
Karen Wilkinson, Group CX & Spa Director, said: “We are delighted to be able to welcome guests back to our spas. There has been a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes to ensure that all our spas are safe for both guests and staff.
“We want to offer a pleasant and relaxing experience and I am sure that there are many people ready to be pampered after the last difficult months. Although we are not able to offer our full range of treatments yet there are a number of special offers available. I think we all deserve a treat after a prolonged period of lockdown and our therapists can’t wait to welcome guests back.”
