Spa trends 2011: Sleep therapy

It's no surprise that the economic climate, parenthood, work stresses, and life in general has left one in four people in the UK suffering from insomnia at some point in their lives. Whether it's chronic lack of sleep or a blip in your sleep cycle, it's unnerving, exhausting and incredibly disrupting.

Luckily, 2011 is set to be the year of sleep, courtesy of some wonderful initiatives by some of our favourite spas.  Rockliffe Hall and Grayshott Spa have been running sleep retreats for some time, with unprecedented success, and there's more to come this year.

Combining specially developed spa treatments with advice and help from leading experts, you can rest easy after a weekend with the specialists.

If you don't have time for a weekend retreat, but still need to get some rest, then Sanctuary Spa Covent Garden has a quick-fix solution. Especially designed for Sanctuary Spa, their low-frequency sound-wave therapy beds mimic body massage whilst providing a calming, restful environment far from the madding crowds of Central London. Just half an hour is claimed to ease tension, boost your immune system, ease pain and encourage restful sleep.
