ESPA Life at Corinthia London launches suite of six new mindfulness therapies

LONDON, England - Award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia London is the first UK spa to launch a suite of six unique mindfulness therapies, all under one roof. The six mindfulness therapies comprise: ESPA Mindful Massage, ESPA Mindful Facial, Mindful Breathing & Meditation, Mindful Sleep, and two Mindful Fitness sessions.



Mindfulness is at the core of wellness. The mental state of a person is equally as important as the physical, and to ensure an equal balance of the two in our everyday lives, ESPA Life at Corinthia has created a suite of treatments that aims to make ‘mindfulness’ accessible.

Mindfulness is the mental state achieved by focusing your awareness on the present moment. Busy lives often prevent us from thinking about ourselves and our health suffers. ESPA Life wants to ensure their guests get the maximum restorative effects mentally and emotionally, as well as physically, from their time at the spa.

Mindfulness can bring about long-term benefits and positively affects levels of happiness and well-being. Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness not only prevents depression but that it also directly impacts the brain patterns underlying day-to-day anxiety, stress, depression and irritability.



Laura Vallati, Spa Director at ESPA Life at Corinthia says, “I have studied mental and physical well-being for over 20 years, in many different cultures and parts of the world.  The one approach to life that seems to have profound effects on well-being, at all ages, is the practice of ‘Mindfulness’. To complement our holistic wellness offering at Corinthia, I have collaborated with ESPA in designing a suite of mindfulness therapies; each one offering a different emphasis or appeal to the individual.  We continue to innovate by offering the latest ways of combining ancient and modern thinking for better health.”

Given the powerful way mindfulness can support and enhance physical and mental well-being, ESPA Life are combining this philosophy with expert massage and fitness therapies.  The six new treatments are:

1. ESPA Mindful Massage 

This holistic, deeply relaxing and clarifying experience works on the concept of mindfulness, focusing on both mind and body to help you reduce stress and ‘be more in the present’.  The therapist skilfully guides you through breathing and visualization techniques to help relax the mind and release physical or emotional anxieties. The metamorphic zones on the feet are then massaged to help re-balance and ground, before a soothing, deeply therapeutic massage is continued up through the body to promote positivity to the mind, finishing with a re-energizing scalp massage using warm rose quartz crystals.

This is a 90-minute treatment using ESPA massage oils with prices from £190 (approximately $279).

2. ESPA Mindful Facial 

Naturally advanced formulas and warmed herbal poultices unite with therapeutic hands to deeply cleanse, hydrate and rejuvenate skin while also calming a busy mind. Feel negative energies fade as your therapist expertly guides you through breathing and visualization techniques, before long, lifting strokes using warmed poultices sculpt and tone the facial contours while nourishing the skin. Finishing with your choice of a soothing scalp massage or hand and arm massage, you emerge feeling relaxed, nurtured and with beautifully smooth, radiant and nourished skin.

This is a 90-minute treatment with prices from £190 (approximately $279).

3. Mindful Breathing & Meditation

Drawing from the ancient practices of Pranayama and Yoga Nidra, this experience aims at training our busy minds to master conscious relaxation.  It dissipates and prevents physical, mental and emotional tensions and consequently has a highly restorative effect on our entire being. During the practice of Yoga Nidra one feels as if in deep sleep but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. In this state of deep relaxation, the mind becomes exceptionally receptive to positive suggestions and intentions. The practice is instrumental to drive positive life changes, breaking habits and learning new things. This experience is a wonderful tonic to combat jet lag, exhaustion and convalescence as well as a great immune booster. Additionally, many have found Yoga Nidra a valuable tool for managing and healing many psychosomatic diseases like insomnia, hypertension, digestive disorders, anxiety and depression.

This is available as a 60-minute or 90-minute treatment with prices from £120 (approximately $176).

4. Mindful Sleep

This tailor-made experience distinctively addresses physical and emotional stresses and strains. It begins by relieving deep-seated muscular tension with an indulgent and totally relaxing personalized massage using a combination of hot stones and warm oil gently poured onto your body. A soothing scalp massage then helps clear your mind and enables you to completely switch-off, while guided mindful breathing techniques further promote calm and relaxation. A personalized session of Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep follows, inducing complete physical and emotional relaxation through visualization techniques. Anxieties are soothed and an uninterrupted, blissful night’s sleep awaits.

This bespoke experience is available as a day spa with prices from £280 (approximately $411) and as part of a residential package with prices from £600 (approxmately $880), based on single occupancy.

Mindful Fitness

This is the Ultimate Adrenaline & Zen Cocktail. Taking fitness training beyond the confines of ESPA Life state-of-the-art gym, these programs offer a definitive holistic approach to health and fitness as well as celebrating the beautiful destination. These customized outdoor fitness activities will have you taking in the sights along the banks of the River Thames or reconnecting with nature in the tranquil heaven of St. James Park in the heart of London. Following the exercise, you will be treated to a deeply relaxing session of Yoga Nidra guided relaxation. These programs can be enjoyed individually or as a small group.

5. Park Power

Guided by one of our expert personal trainers but governed by your own pace, this workout will entail aspects of aerobic exercise to raise your heart rate and boost the ‘feel good’ hormones in the beautiful St. James Park. The jog or walk will include regular stops for light stretches and specific mobility exercises designed to improve posture and reduce the risk of injury. This training will leave you feeling invigorated and energized as you head back to ESPA Life to wind down. Using specific visualization techniques our trainers will induce complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation. You will emerge refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of your day.

This is a 90-minute session with prices from £160 (approximately $235).

6. River Rush

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and step out with one of our highly qualified personal trainers for a scenic run along the South Bank of the River Thames. Much more than just a run, the workout will incorporate bouts of high intensity exercise which is proven to be the most effective way of reducing body fat.  Whilst taking in the city skyline, our trainers will help and advise on running techniques and breathing patterns throughout.  Ease down over one of London’s landmark bridges and step back into the calm of ESPA Life, changing tact as the intensity lowers and attention naturally shifts to mindfulness and breathing techniques that our trainers will employ to ease any mental and muscular tensions. Run, reflect, restore and relax during this 90-minute program.

This is a 90-minute session with prices from £160 (approximately $235).

Spread over four floors, ESPA Life at Corinthia features 17 treatment rooms, a private spa suite, nail studio, indoor swimming pool, vitality pool, amphitheater sauna, ice fountain, marble heated loungers and private sleep pods. Revolutionary lifestyle programs have been developed, incorporating complementary and alternative medicine and targeted fitness and rehabilitation services that focus on sports training, detox, sleep, weight loss and general vitality.

BERLIN, Germany - TIME Unlimited Tours from Auckland, New Zealand has been selected as the overall winner in the category “Sense of Place” at the National Geographic World Legacy Awards 2016.

The World Legacy Awards, a partnership between the National Geographic Society and ITB Berlin, showcase the leading travel and tourism companies, organizations and destinations from around the world — ranging from large resorts to small eco-lodges and from wildlife conservancies to geoparks — driving the sustainable tourism transformation of the travel industry based on National Geographic’s work of inspiring people to care about the planet.

“The past year has been truly outstanding for us and we are overjoyed to have been selected to receive this iconic global award. This accolade is a further validation of the great efforts we undertake to promote and lead the way in authentic experiences that aim to always protect, preserve and enhance the beautiful environment in which we are so fortunate to operate. We applied in the category 'Sense of Place," because we see our unique Auckland-based business as having a mission to always go the extra mile to leave our environment in a better place than how we found it, plus to always strive to lead the way for others to follow in Ecotourism. We see this latest accolade by National Geographic as one of the world’s most respected organizations as further motivation to keep improving for the benefit of the many stakeholders that are involved in our unique business,” say Neill and Ceillhe Sperath, Founders and Directors of TIME Unlimited Tours.

Ecuador: mega-diverse country for travel

Ecuador is perhaps one of the most mega-diverse countries per square kilometer on the planet. In relation to its surface, Ecuador holds the greatest amount of species of plants and animals on Earth. At latitude 0 degrees in the middle of the world, shadows disappear in the presence of the mid-day sun. It is a destination where everything feels close and where each region is a different world, from the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Coast, to the Andes Highlands and the Amazon Rainforest.



Ecuador’s key tourism products are eco-tourism, adventure tourism, and cultural tourism. Here, travelers journey through a life-changing experience that generates personal growth and make them better human beings. As far as city life, Quito, is filled with bright blue skies and art, and bears the largest best preserved colonial center of Latin America fused with a modern and contemporary city. Museums, churches, convents, parks, skyscrapers, and town squares captivate visitors from all over the world.


Named after Pichincha and surrounded by powerful green mountains, visitors may observe 14 volcanoes with over 4,000 meters of altitude from different places of the city. The capital and political center of Ecuador was the first city named by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1978, and was the winner as the best destination of South America. Ecuador uses the .travel domain to gain that instant brand recognition.


Website visitors know that they will be “traveling” to Ecuador when they see the .travel web site extension.


Details of the .travel domain program may be found at www.travel.travel and through any .travel authorized registrar listed at www.registrar.travel. Please address any inquiries to info@travel.travel .
