We Are Vertigo adventure centre opens a spa for parents

We Are Vertigo has come up with a savvy solution for parents.

The Newtownbreda adventure centre has opened a spa, where parents can sneak off to relax while the kids wear themselves out.

The venue has a trampoline park, climbing wall and ski slopes - and now offers a range of luxurious treatments at the spa including facials, nail treatments, waxing, tans and full body and deep tissue massages.

The £100,000 spa has created 10 new jobs.

We Are Vertigo, which is the brainchild of husband and wife team Gareth and Lorna Murphy, opened two years ago.

Lorna, a make-up artist and businesswoman with experience in the fashion, film and beauty industry, is the creative design behind the We Are Vertigo Brand which aims to bridge the gap for parents, simplifying their busy lives in the process.

She said: “We have created a destination which has something for all ages and while the kids play and burn off some energy, mums and dads can Indulge in the sanctuary of the spa for a bit of ”me time”. The Spa will provide luxurious facial and body treatments from Aromatherapy Associates to award winning tanning services by Vita Liberata, and manicures pedicures and gel nails by leading brand Essie.

 “The addition of the Spa will create a unique experience for the parents, where they can check the kids in and drop them off, then come into us where they can relax for the duration of their chosen treatment and get totally spoiled.

She added: "Parents are excited about it; I’m excited about it! I do believe that we’re all time-short these days and it’s something that caters for the needs of the entire family, providing the ultimate in multi-tasking and relaxation."
