Ragdale Hall Health Spa
Ragdale Hall Health Hydro and Thermal Spa
Ragdale Hall Health Hydro and Thermal Spa is described by The Good Spa Guide as "The original and still the best dedicated spa retreat". It is also a recipient of their coveted 5 bubbles, and a host of other awards including Favorite UK Spa of the Year 2008 in the internationally renown SpaFinder Readers Choice Awards, all of which supports the Guide's testament.
Nestling in the tranquil Leicestershire countryside, this lovely Victorian Manor house, which is set in peaceful gardens and enjoys wonderful views, first opened its doors as a slimming hydro back in 1973.
In those days its female only guests jogged, took yoga classes and were limited to 500 calories per day for the first 3 days of their stay.
More than 35 years later things have changed somewhat. With their recently opened state of the art thermal spa adding to the already extensive range of facilities and wealth of experience, there is no doubt that Ragdale Hall is a worthy recipient of the accolades bestowed upon it.
Ragdale Hall Health Spa Treatments and Therapies
Ragdale Hall promotes a holistic philosophy towards its therapies. It offers a great range of treatments to sooth and rejuvenate both body and mind, from wraps and mud packs to massage and facials. With exercise sessions to tone, not forgetting hair, beauty and nail treatments to please the eye, Ragdale Hall has everything you could want from a spa retreat stay.
Many of the treatments offered, including those in the 'Ragdale Exclusives' range of treatments incorporate the most sumptuous products such as Clarins, Elemis and Decleor. The treatments all sound wonderful, but one of our favorites has to be their Neom Top to Toe Organic Indulgence. A marvelous treatment and a first from Natural Magic, who are renowned for their organic treatment candles and mists. The Neom range is totally organic and is the first to incorporate sapphires, known for their harmonizing benefits, as a key ingredient in their products.
The Top to Toe starts with a fabulous foot exfoliation after which your feet are immersed in a bath of crystals. Then comes a body polish invigorating the skin prior to the full body massage, which is the central part of this treatment. Incorporating Swedish massage and stretching, aromatherapy, crystal therapy and relaxation procedures, this 2 and a quarter hour treatment is absolutely guaranteed to leave you feeling wonderfully relaxed and revitalized.
