Water and Wellbeing

Treat yourself to some ‘me’ time at Crieff Hydro…

We’ve been taking our guests’ wellbeing to heart since 1868 and we like to think we’re pretty good at it. Along with our dedicated team of experienced therapists and luxury brands of Decléor and Aromatherapy Associates we have wellness and spa all wrapped up in the perfect wellbeing bow.

Let's rewind to where it all started

In the nineteenth century, a system of water treatment called Hydropathy arrived in Britain. It was particularly popular in Scotland and on 7 August 1868, Crieff Hydropathic Establishment (known now as Crieff Hydro) opened its doors – with Dr Thomas Meikle at the helm.

Hydropathy was known as the ‘water-cure’, where the repeated action of water applied directly onto the body by showers, baths, wet sheets or towels was thought to cure and rejuvenate guests.

We’ve moved on from then, no more plunging you into an ice cold spring water bath before hooking you up to the most dubious wellbeing machinery imaginable. But Hydropathy, wellness and wellbeing is still at the core of what we do today.

Have you tried our Signature Treatment?

Our signature treatment was designed by our Family Spa and Wellbeing Manager, Fiona Young as a nod to the cold waters of years gone by, with a little spa twist added in for the ultimate relaxation.

Re-Hydro-Ate (see what we did there?) begins with a relaxing back, neck and shoulder massage using the combination of warm and cool stones. The cool provides a contrasting sensory experience to stimulate the circulation and bring blood (and of course healing) to the areas worked on. Don’t forget that we use lovely Decléor Aromatherapy balms so you also get the wonderful smells that we all love about spa.  Our therapists don’t simply stop with the luxurious back massage, they then move onto the face for a bespoke Decléor Discovery facial to leave your skin looking refreshed and radiant, it’s the best of both worlds for mind, body and of course, our heritage.

...and relax

So, whether you are looking for some ‘me time’ with a swim in our Victorian Baths, some relaxation time with our range of spa and wellbeing treatments, a relaxing pedicure with Olga or simply some retail therapy with a take hope Decléor Gift Box – our spa is here for you.

Not staying with us, no problem. You can still come in and enjoy all of our wonderful treatments and make an extra special day of it by enjoying a spot of Lunch at The Terrace or an afternoon tea (we’re sure Dr Meikle would approve of this!)
