The new chocolate and bamboo massage spa treatments available at The Bannatyne Spa.


The Bannatyne Spa has launched two luxurious new spa treatments for use at its network of spas.

The deliciously named Chocolate Massage is an indulgent treatment for the body using Dead Sea salts, essential oils and warmed 100% pure cocoa butter. A body scrub and massage that is supremely indulgent and unforgettable, Bannatyne’s Chocolate Massage is guaranteed to leave skin feeling hydrated, re-mineralised and infused with a deliciously indulgent scent.

Customers can choose from up to three different options, including mint, orange or original chocolate, and they can also opt for a back, neck and shoulder chocolate massage or a full body chocolate massage.

Bannatyne’s new Bamboo Massage is a unique therapy that provides stress relief and helps to strengthen muscles, aid lymph drainage and boost circulation. Bamboo Massage is a powerful treatment which uses silky bamboo canes to deliver a truly unique and indulgent experience.

Karen Wilkinson, Bannatyne’s Head of Spa, explained: “The Chocolate Massage is a superbly indulgent and unforgettable experience for the senses, especially if you love chocolate! The Bamboo Massage is also something a bit different, and it’s been proven to have a number of health and wellbeing benefits. The treatment targets reflexology points and helps improve flexibility, balance and inner well-being.

“Once you’ve experienced the Bamboo Massage, you’ll be wanting to book in a second treatment, as your skin is left feeling silky, nourished and restored
from the bamboo bio extract. The massage is also perfect following a workout, or after a stressful day at work.

“We are delighted to offer these two new treatments as we believe that they offer something unique to our customers.”

Karen added: “Bannatyne’s is a strong British brand and the new treatments tie in with our strong belief in health and wellbeing. Our two new massages represent indulgent but affordable luxury, and will appeal to all who believe in the cleanse, tone and moisturise mantra.”

Chocolate Therapy treatments will be available at 23 Bannatyne Spas across the UK, while the Bamboo Massage is available at 33 locations. For more information call the Bannatyne Call Centre on 0845 434 8466.

About Bannatyne Fitness and The Bannatyne Group

Bannatyne Fitness, which is part of the Bannatyne Group, is the UK’s largest independent health club operator. With over 60 sites across the UK under the Bannatyne’s Health Clubs brand, the company has around 170,000 members and employs in the region of 5,000 people.

The Bannatyne’s Health Clubs chain began in 1997 with the first club on Teesside. The idea was born following a skiing accident after which Chairman Duncan Bannatyne needed regular exercise to recover. He could not find facilities locally and decided to use some of the proceeds from the sale of his previous business, Quality Care Homes plc, to establish the fitness chain.

Bannatyne’s Health Clubs can now be found in towns and cities throughout the UK, with a particularly strong presence near residential areas of large towns. Bannatyne’s places a strong emphasis on wellbeing and exercise forming a central part of living a healthy lifestyle of its members.

A large number of Bannatyne’s Health Clubs also feature a Bannatyne Spa, which offer spacious therapy rooms providing luxurious treatments for men and women including body massage, facials, manicures and hairdressing. There are currently 33 Bannatyne Spa sites across the UK.

In addition to the Bannatyne Fitness, Duncan Bannatyne owns and operates a number of successful businesses as part of the Bannatyne Group including:

• Bannatyne Hotels Ltd, which operates Bannatyne Hotel incorporating Maxine’s Restaurant in Darlington, County Durham, The Bannatyne Spa Hotel in Hastings, Bannatyne’s Charlton House hotel in Shepton Mallet, Somerset and Bannatyne Hotel in Durham City.

• Bar Bannatyne in Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s cosmopolitan leisure complex, The Gate.
