Attendees will also have access to a deep meditative sleep area, where they can experience 20-minute taster sessions of the new Circadian Rhythm Reset Ritual from Made for Life Organics in partnership with Gharieni.  Twenty-minute Touch Therapy taster sessions provided by Carden Park and Made for Life Touch Therapy specialists will also be on offer.

“Currently, 90% of spas and salons turn people living with or undergoing cancer treatment away. SpaFest Gives Back is about using funds raised at the annual SpaFest event to simply open those spa doors to all.

“I’d like to thank the whole team at Carden Park and everyone who sponsors, supports and attends SpaFest – you helped make this happen,” she added. 

SpaFest Gives back is the result of a partnership between SpaFest and Carden Park, and is supported by the British Beauty Council, the Standards Authority for Touch in Cancer Care and the UK Spa Association. 

With a focus on people, planet and sustainable economics, SpaFest was founded in 2017 by Made for Life Organics founder and managing director Amanda Winwood in partnership with European Spa founding editor Sarah Camilleri.
