Dip a toe into new Potters Bar spa experience

Last Modified June 20, 2019

Residents are invited to take a virtual tour of the new spa facility in Potters Bar, which opened its doors this week (Monday 17 June).

A short introductory video to The Spa at Furzefield Leisure Centre has been released this week and is aimed at giving potential customers a sneaky peak inside the stylish and relaxing facility. Among the features on show is the salt sauna, a traditional sauna with a Himalayan salt wall intended to help ease aches and pains and enhance the body’s natural sleep cycle; the aroma steam room, which uses salt steam to soothe and heal skin and clear the mind; a herbal sauna, which is a dry heat sauna in which visitors can relax in temperatures of up to 85 degrees; an ice fountain; health shower and heated relaxation benches.

The video also features one of The Spa’s beauty therapists discussing the range of Decléor treatments available, including facials, waxing, massages and Shellac nail treatments.

The new facility is the latest addition in an ongoing £5 million improvement programme of InspireAll-managed leisure facilities in the borough. The programme is in partnership with Hertsmere Borough Council, which owns the centres and has provided the loan to InspireAll. As part of the re-fit, Furzefield also has a state-of-the-art gym, immersive indoor cycling studio, new changing facilities, an improved café and additional studio space, as well as soft play and indoor climbing facilities.

Barry Ellis, Regional Manager for InspireAll said: "I am delighted with the developments at Furzefield. Despite being built in the 1960s, Furzefield continues to evolve with the changing market. 

"The recent additions of climbing, soft play and the improved fitness facilities have all proved popular and The Spa at Furzefield is an amazing experience that residents will love.”

Councillor Caroline Clapper, our Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture and Health, said: “I’m blown away by the recent transformation of the borough’s leisure centres, and this addition is no exception.

“A lot of thought and attention has gone into making The Spa the kind of place people want to come, relax and unwind.

“This is the sort of development that will help ensure the borough’s leisure centres continue to thrive and remain financially viable so they can benefit their communities for years to come.”

The opening of The Spa at Furzefield follows the opening of a similar facility at Bushey Grove Leisure Centre earlier this year. Improvements are also planned for The Venue in Borehamwood.
