Spa treatments near Stirling

A year after the official launch of the Macdonald Hotels & Resorts 'Spa Collection', the award winning hotel group has invested further in its wellbeing by becoming one of the first hotel groups in the UK to introduce free, innovative Vital Health & Wellbeing checks through industry respected FITECH. 

And leading the way in Scotland is Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa by Polmont in East Central Scotland. Since its multi-million pound refurbishment in 2011 it has become one of 17 Vital Health & Wellbeing Clubs to launch FITECH.

The FITECH Wellness and Fitness testing system, designed to encourage participants to embrace a healthier way of life to achieve fitness and lifestyle goals, is currently used by the likes of the military, police and fire services. Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa offers the handy wellness programme free to existing members and guests.

The spa and leisure club facilities indulge guests with the latest Technogym equipment, a pool, scented steam room and the finest skin-care products from Decléor and FITECH is another great benefit to existing members of the Club.

FITECH commences with an initial individual Lifestyle Review, which covers areas such as stress, nutrition, drinking habits, smoking and activity levels.  Crucially, it also enables participants to discuss their current health status, wellness goals and motivation. 

FITECH assessment results and responses to lifestyle questionnaires are evaluated against the national average and presented to participants in a report format. The easy to understand document follows a simple traffic light system indicating: Green = Good, Amber = Need for improvement and Red = Below Average. Areas that need work are identified and advice is given on how to make amends, with realistic tweaks to current lifestyles that take into consideration work and family commitments. 

Over the next 12 months Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa will extend its already impressive spa services by introducing Holistic Therapies that cater for savvy consumers looking for results driven treatments that target ailments including physiotherapy and sports therapy. Alternative treatments will also make their debut on the service menu to attract a more diverse clientele and to complete the all encompassed wellbeing offering.

General Manager of Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa, Brett Ingle commented: "Since launching FITECHit has been a popular facility with our members and guests. Because it charts progress in a very visual way with graphs, it is easy for people to see how they are performing against their fitness and lifestyle goals. We find this is incredibly motivating, and it reassures members that goals we set with them are absolutely achievable."
