Pure Spa Glasgow West Nile Street

The Christmas to-do list is a mile long, the streets are filled with harassed shoppers, and it’s less the nights are drawing in more, there may be a patch of daylight between 1-3pm.

December is wonderful but it also can be brutal, which is why it is important to set aside an hour, or even half hour, to take some time for yourself and relax.

The people behind Scottish spa group PURE Spa know the importance of taking a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The spa was established in 2002 in Edinburgh when chartered accountant Becky Woodhouse noticed a gap in the market for urban professionals wanting to take care of their health, well being and beauty essentials. More PURE spas soon opened in Edinburgh’s Lothian Road, Aberdeen and Glasgow’s Silverburn.

Now their latest venture, PURE Spa West Nile Street in Glasgow City Centre has opened to pamper Glaswegians looking for some relaxation.

We were invited along to the spa’s launch for a tour as well as a sample of the pampering treatments on offer.

PURE Spa West Nile Street

PURE Glasgow West Nile Street has four spa rooms, four beauty rooms, a spray tan room, a brow bar and a mani-pedi bar spread over two floors. Products used are exclusively Elemis, Leighton Denny Expert Nails and Sunbelievable.

The bottom floor spa is dedicated to traditional beauty offers such as tanning waxing and manicures as well as express facials and massages for those just popping on on their lunch break, while the top floor is a spa haven where the longer massages and spa packages take place. It is also where the spa’s infra red sauna is situated.

After the grand tour, PURE Spa treated us to an express treatment of our choice. One of my life motto’s is “never turn down a massage” so I decided to go for the fifteen minute back, neck and shoulder massage which was simply heavenly. The masseuse placed a lavender mask on my eyes and with the lavender scented essential oils and perfect mix of relaxing music, I may well have floated away.
