Growing day spa chain focuses exclusively on healing and launches training brand

20 Apr 2017
Urban Oasis, a new urban spa with a focus on healing, has opened within the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel in Manchester UK.

"Our mission is to bring healing to the high street," founder Martha Mary Brophy told Spa Business. "The focus is on creating environments conducive to deepening customers’ healing treatments."

“The Urban Oasis brand is different," she continued, "Because the focus is completely on healing as opposed to pampering, and the day spas are located in busy urban areas to offer the oasis that so many customers desire.”

This is the second location for the growing brand. The first – within a Debenhams department store in Manchester – houses a therapy training centre and yoga studio.

Brophy also has plans to expand the company's training division, and has created a sub-brand – Grow at Urban Oasis – for the training centre and personal development space at Debenhams.

The new Hilton location has three treatment rooms, including a double room, and uses Sothys skincare in its treatments, along with its own branded Urban Oasis line.
