How the power of touch can boost mental wellbeing

By Sarah Todd

Although mental illness has represented a growing health crisis for some time in the UK, the recent Covid-19 pandemic has seen mental health problems become the single largest cause of disability.

In the latest issue of European Spa magazine, we highlight a new report from The British Beauty Council, UK Spa Association, BABTAC and NHBF that has comprehensively detailed the many positive effects that personal care services – such as spa therapies – can have on mental health, productivity and life expectancy.

The Effects of Personal Care Services on Mental Health and Wellbeing report also reveals that there is a huge opportunity now to support the UK’s National Health Service and relieve the pressures linked to mental ill-health by incorporating personal care services as part of a toolkit for social prescription and solutions within existing public health medical services.
