Check In and Chill Out: Be Relax Spa Opens at Heathrow

Passengers flying through Heathrow Terminal 5 can now enjoy a pamper and a pummelling courtesy of airport spa specialist Be Relax.  The French firm is launching an 876 square foot relaxation centre in the airport’s satellite terminal – Terminal 5B – offering passengers a wide range of beauty and well-being treatments from massage and manicures to aroma and oxygen therapy.

Tailored to passengers’ needs and requirements, Be Relax appointments can be made in advance or on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Available to everyone, prices start from as little as £9.00 and last anything from 10 minutes for quick-fix treatments to 60 minutes for the ultimate in ‘me-time’ moments.

To complement the beauty services on offer, Be Relax will sell a range of products for travel and home use including a head massager, soothing bath oil and his and her well-being destination kits.

The launch of Be Relax at Heathrow marks the French firm’s plans to establish itself in the UK.  An expert in beauty and relaxation services at the airport, it currently has outlets in 10 European airports and retails Be Relax branded products in stores worldwide.

Says Be Relax Managing Director Nicolas Briest: “We are delighted to be launching Be Relax at Heathrow, one of the world's busiest and best-connected international airports. Carried out by trained therapists, our express holiday services offer great value for money and will appeal as much to the tired business traveller as those looking for a way to relax and unwind before the journey ahead.”

Says Mark Jennings, head of fashion and well-being at Heathrow, “Be Relax is the ideal stop-off for those who haven’t had time to prepare before their holiday or simply want to indulge in some pre-travel pampering.  With a clear understanding of time constraints, the relaxation centre will deliver a service that works in harmony with passengers’ needs and meets our long-term commitment of making every journey better.”
