“The idea of the city spa is to bring a moment of peace and calm into 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 lounge’s impressive-looking historical architecture, protected by Finland’s National Board of Antiquities, makes for a unique relaxation spot and the perfect setting for guests to calm their mind while enjoying a 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. The spa combines 30 | Issue 95 | December 2016
modern, effective and safe skin therapies with pampering and relaxation. “As part of the Finnair loyalty programme, clients have the possibility of using their Finnair Plus points to enjoy the treatments,” Uibu says. 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, IPL-light and peeling treatments in the spa,” says Uibu. “Our strength is in our exceptional expertise in skin care. Our highly qualified professional massage therapists and aestheticians are able to advise on the best treatments for each customer. 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!” Uibu concludes.
