THERAPIES, TREATMENTS & GYM FACILITIES
HYPERBARIC HYDROXY AIRPOD
The first of its kind in the UK, the AirPod works by speeding up the body’s own healing process through the increased absorption of oxygen by 35%, whilst under pressure. Hydrogen is proven to selectively target and reduce free radicals that cause disease, degeneration and ageing resulting from body oxidation.
By providing an increase in oxygen and Hydrogen to the cells via atmospheric pressure, the AirPod supports the body to optimise detoxification, increase energy production, improve mind clarity, deepen sleep quality and improve the health and wellbeing baseline.
CRYOTHERAPY DUAL CHAMBER
A whole body electric cryotherapy, it’s the coldest in Europe reaching -110 degrees Celsius in the main unit. This performance enhancing and therapeutic process of reducing body temperature through extreme cold application, has been proven to decrease inflammation and oxidative stress and may prompt the release of endorphins, activate the immune system, boost blood circulation and metabolism, detoxify cells, activate healing processes and optimise training and recovery efficiency.
Another first of its kind in the UK, this is a form of enhanced recovery that removes users from all sensory stimulus, which account for 90% of neuromuscular activity – you conserve and redirect vast amounts of physical and mental energy.
The water in the Dreampod is highly concentrated with over half a ton of Epsom salts. The ultra-deep relaxation of floating assists the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthening resistance and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.
Unlike traditional saunas that intensely heat the air around you, infrared saunas harness the power of light to warm and detoxify you from the inside out. A full-spectrum infrared sauna utilises various wavelengths of infrared light that promotes healing and revitalisation and penetrates deeper into the body’s soft tissue, increasing circulation. Additionally infrared can penetrate the fat cells causing vasodilation, resulting in the greatest levels of detoxification and stimulate your metabolism to aid in weight-loss. Infrared heat
provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
BESPOKE PERSONAL TRAINING
Members are invited to begin their journey with a 360-fitness assessment and 3D body scan. A selected trainer will act as a personal health concierge by curating a bespoke program with an integrative approach to training and recovery modalities.
Utilising the latest advancements in diagnostic testing, the specialist biomarker analysis includes blood testing, DNA analysis, metabolic testing, microbiome panels and more, measuring hundreds of critical biomarkers in the body. The comprehensive data obtained provides a complete picture of an individual’s current health in order to determine a unique health optimisation plan.
The expert team of nutritional therapists provide bespoke diet and lifestyle support by addressing specific dietary needs to help restore optimal health through improving gut function, detoxification processes and cellular nourishment.
Helping those seeking their inner athlete, by utilising specialist training modalities, from simulated high altitude environments that lower oxygen intake, improving training thresholds and enhancing overall capacity, to improving muscular activation and efficiency through Electrical Muscle Stimulation training in one of the EMS suites.
In addition, the Red Light specialist training within the gym, offers a natural, non-invasive therapy that delivers beneficial wavelengths of red light to skin and cells. The purposely built red light training room allows for enhanced cellular energy, increased recovery, improved cognition, promotes better sleep and beyond. Unlike a tanning booth style light therapy bed, a red light training room provides the same therapeutic effects but serves a multi-functional purpose. Why not warm up for your workout solo or with a gym buddy?
An elite range of market leading experts that includes rehab specialists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and massage therapists. These experts aid recovery with their tailor made treatments designed to unblock and release joint pressure and muscle tightness to decrease pain and eliminate inflammation.
COMPRESSIVE & PERCUSSIVE THERAPY

Percussion therapy delivers targeted pulses of pressure into the muscle/tissue of the body, helping to relieve muscle pain, stiffness, soreness, and increase range of motion.
SUPPLEMENTS & WELLNESS LOUNGE
