From Scotland to Southend

When Alaine Welsh visited Southend for the first time to attend a friend’s wedding, she had no idea that it was the beginning of a love affair that would change her life.

Bowled over by the vibrancy of the town and the can-do attitude of its business community, just two months later Alaine was living in Southend and planning to open the UK’s first Private Member’s Spa and Clinic.

On 16 April, in the heart of Leigh-on-Sea, her dream will come true as Destination opens its doors to the public. It will create 16 new jobs in the local area.

Just like regular visits to the gym keep you fit and healthy, joining Destination means looking and feeling your best every single day is simple and easy to achieve. The exclusive centre on Leigh Broadway offers classical spa treatments alongside a wide range of clinical, health and wellbeing services in six treatment zones. 

Alaine says: “My philosophy is to give clients only the finest and most contemporary standards of care, comfort, products and technology, provided by highly trained experts. The innovative and advanced non-surgical, physician-directed skin procedures and therapeutic spa packages we’ve gathered here will give our clients superior results in the fight against time.”

Many of the products and services offered are currently only available in central London, such as Aromatherapy Associates and Leighton Denny.

Destination offers a range of exotic and luxurious treatments, including a unique Light Therapy Relaxation Room, massage using heated Tiger Clam shells from the Tropics and another which takes place with you suspended in a hydrotherapy tank. Alaine explains: “You float face-up on pillows of warm water, so your whole body is supported in perfect spinal alignment. These cushioned pillows of water keep you warm, promote circulation and unusually allow your back to be massaged - whilst you’re actually laid on it! It’s perfect for mum’s to be or those with back problems and impaired mobility.”  

There are three membership packages that allow you to make regular visits and bespoke one to one programmes tailored to your specific with a designated therapist of choice. Corporate memberships are also available - “I see this as a way of helping you ensure stress in the workplace is recognised and you are actively taking the necessary steps to ensure your staff are being properly cared for and also rewarded for their hard work and dedication. Exceptional services, outstanding customer care and exclusive membership benefits are my aim. We are the destination for people who want to look good and feel great every day.”
