An oasis of calm in the middle of the city Founded in 2005, Helsinki Day Spa is one of the largest day spas in Finland, and the country’s first urban spa.

“The idea of the city spa is to bring a moment of peace and calm into the customers’ busy daily lives. Our mission is to bring wellbeing to the mind and body,” says Toomas Uibu, managing director of Helsinki Day Spa. “It is important that customers are able to relax and leave their everyday stresses behind.” The spa has been recently renovated, and new treatment rooms have been added. Now, a total of 16 treatment rooms offer a number of the latest skincare therapies, along with pampering and relaxation. The spa lounge’s impressive-looking historical architecture, protected by Finland’s National Board of Antiquities, makes for a unique relaxation spot, and the perfect 50  |  Issue 131  |  December 2019

setting for guests to calm their minds while enjoying a soothing cup of tea. Helsinki Day Spa employs over 20 wellness professionals, including trained aestheticians and professional massage therapists providing a wide range of facial and body treatments. “As part of the Finnair loyalty programme, clients have the possibility of using their Finnair Plus points to enjoy the treatments,” says Uibu. Helsinki Day Spa works in partnership with Ihoakatemia, the leading clinic of aesthetic dermatology in Finland. “Collaborating with Ihoakatemia allows us to achieve great long-term results when working with customers with various needs and skin conditions, and we always

work closely with dermatologists. The latest trend for us is not to run a medical spa but to schedule a comprehensive beauty programme, including some annual effective medical treatments performed in the medical facility, and separate regular maintenance mesotherapy, IPLlight and peeling treatments in the spa,” Uibu continues. “Our strength is in our unique expertise in skin care. Our highly qualified professional massage therapists and aestheticians are able to advise on the best treatments for each customer,” says the managing director. “Coupled with the spa’s luxurious setting, the experience is perfect for busy clients who would like to step away from the city’s bustle – we take them beyond the daily grind and warmly welcome all visitors!” Web: Phone: +358-9-685 0630
