A LEADING North East spa is set to double its number of therapists after a successful first year in business.ramside-spa-logo

The Spa at Ramside at Ramside Hall Hotel near Durham, is looking to increase its number of therapists from 15 to 30, due to the growing demand for treatments at the multi-million pound spa.

Since it opened in August last year, the £8m spa has not only attracted large number of members but has also proven highly popular with day guests.

“The response to the spa and the range of treatments we offer has been beyond expectations,” said Jill Russell, Spa Director.

“And to cope with the demand, we are looking to employ 15 additional therapists, on both a full and part time basis.

“As we offer an extensive range of treatments and packages, we will provide full ESPA training to new recruits, as well as training for our specialist Wellness for Cancer programme.”

The spa offers a range of facilities including five pools including one of the UK’s biggest hydrotherapy pools and an outdoor infinity pool, 14 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art gym, sleep sanctuary, thermal suite, beauty snug, Fusion Asian restaurant and a hairdressing salon.

It was also the first in the UK to offer the international Wellness For Cancer programme, where all spa staff have been trained to ensure that they offer treatment to those either battling the disease or in remission.
