The Role Of Therapists In Hotel Spas

When it comes to successfully managing a hotel spa, therapists are at a distinct advantage compared to other professionals who may be involved in these organisations, due to their training, which equips them with an incredible sense of versatility. It would, however, be illusory to rely solely on beauty therapists. Significant effort should be made to equip staff with management, administration and language skills.

Setting Priorities – Organizational Skills and Time Management

Admitting that you are a decision maker in your life—the primary decision maker—can be tough. This essentially means that you take full responsibility for who you are and where you are in life. Realizing this, and taking control of your life is inspiring and empowering. Deep down, we all inherently know that it is ultimately up to us to travel down the right pathways to reach our destination. The only thing left to do is to get started.

Going Back to Nature

In our fast paced world people need a place to go to slow down, to connect themselves with nature and to have time for quiet reflection and contemplation through a sensory experience. When we visit a spa we are not only receiving a treatment, we are also separating ourselves from technology, spending time in silence and being healed by a therapist.


The Spa business is still a GROWING INDUSTRY so make sure that when you embark on this exciting journey of starting a spa business that you ensure you are positioning yourself where the consumer needs are currently and take into account any industry trends that are emerging.

In this mad rush, it’s very difficult to stop, take a step backwards, and ask “Why?” It’s very difficult to spot something unusual and take the time to investigate what’s really happening. Yet the rewards can be tremendous. As the brash tycoon Donald Trump said: “If you really want to succeed … keep up your mental stamina and remain curious. I think that bored people are unintelligent people.” And who can argue with that?
