Following the success of the first Tranquillity Spa, which launched this January, the sauna and steam specialists at Dalesauna design a second luxury spa for the people of Northumberland.
Local people in Cramlington, Northumberland have access to the latest wellness facilities after the launch of a new spa at one of the region’s largest leisure centres.
Sauna and steam specialists Dalesauna designed and delivered the new Tranquillity Spa at the Concordia Leisure Centre, which is undergoing a major refurbishment.
Northumberland County Council and Active Northumberland, the charitable leisure and cultural trust which operates leisure facilities on behalf of the council, is investing £3.1m in Concordia Leisure Centre to modernise the site’s facilities and bring new family entertainment and activities into the town centre. The improvement programme, which started in September 2015, is being carried out over three phases to minimise disruption and is due to be completed in July. As part of the redevelopment, the centre has also received a new climbing facility, a dedicated spinning studio, a new fitness studio and a revamped café, while the Cramlington Library is being relocated to the centre.
Working with Northumberland County Council and Robertson Construction, Dalesauna have created a luxurious new spa for the centre hosting a range of heat experiences designed to promote health and wellbeing among all members of the community.
Formerly home to a disused sauna, the centre now offers a full spa which includes a steam room as well as an aromatherapy room, where the gentle warmth of steam is infused with natural aromatherapy essences to relax the mind and body.
The 3m circular spa bath is ideal for boosting circulation making it suitable for those with arthritis or suffering joint pain. It’s also an effective way to treat sore muscles after a workout.
The three-person tiled foot spa with heated bench, ice feature and monsoon and bucket showers complete the offer creating a calm and relaxing environment for users.
The project follows the success of the Tranquillity Spa at Ashington Leisure Centre, which opened at the beginning of the year. The £21m centre was awarded the prestigious RIBA North East Award this spring and its Tranquillity Spa was also designed and delivered by Dalesauna.
Hailed as a sanctuary to escape the pressures of everyday life, the spa at Ashington features a spa pool, aromatherapy room, monsoon showers, ice feature and foot spas in addition to manicure and pedicure bays and three treatment rooms offering a variety of treatments to suit all budgets.
The range of facilities has proved a huge hit with locals with more than 1,600 visits recorded to the thermal experiences within the first four weeks of opening.
Active Northumberland has created a Thermal Spa Experience around the new facilities from Dalesauna, which offers users a journey of relaxation through the various hot and cold therapies. Customers can use both spas on a pay as you go basis or as part of a membership, which gives them unlimited access to the thermal experiences at both Ashington and Concordia leisure centres.
