UK Enterprise Awards 2021

210 | UK Enterprise Awards 2021 Best Wellbeing & Beauty Spa 2021 – East London Located in the vibrant High Road Leyton in East London, Artisa Spa is an independent wellbeing clinic that specialises in massage, waxing and beauty treatments. We speak to Founder, Artisa Bitsi, about what the future has in store. Artisa Spa is a leading massage and beauty treatments provider in East London with the aim of nurturing and relaxing each of its guests with individualised and innovative therapeutic techniques. The salon’s namesake, Artisa Bitsi, is the founder and sole director of Artisa Spa. She launched the brand back in 2017 after a decision to kick it up a notch from being a home-based therapist. After working for seven years around the world as a Level 4 Advanced Massage and Sports Massage therapist, and experiencing first-hand the need to bridge the gap between holistic and western medicine, Artisa now provides a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. Besides running the business, Artisa continues to develop her deep interest in anatomy and physiology by expanding her massage therapist knowledge and training, promoting the importance of regular exercise and bodywork. “Artisa Spa is a space in which all Londoners can escape their busy lives and seek relaxation or rehabilitation,” she explains. “We only use the highest quality products with all our treatments, because our clients deserve only the best!” Artisa Spa is managed by an experienced team of health professionals which consists of physiotherapists, specialised massage therapists, and beauty therapists. All therapists are available to advise on treatments and customised treatment plans to help with stress relief, pain relief, rehabilitation, sports injury, maintain peak performance and to enhance general wellbeing. “All our therapists are highly qualified and passionate individuals,” states Artisa. “Our goal is for massage therapy to be incorporated into everyone’s life on a regular basis, as it is our passion to promote a healthy living and lifestyle in addition to helping clients with stress and pain management by reducing the need for prescription medications.” Unfortunately, like many other businesses, Artisa Spa experienced a large revenue loss due to the Covid-19 restrictions which were implemented during 2020 and 2021. However, things are finally looking up and Artisa is planning on opening a second branch soon. “[We will open] after the government’s guidelines opening on April 12th, though we have seen the amazing support of our loyal clients and we are very grateful to do what we do and we will continue providing with the best quality services.” With a 4.9-star rating on Google, a 4.8-star rating on Treatwell, and with more than 1,250 reviews to its name, it’s no wonder that Artisa Spa was recently voted Best Wellbeing & Beauty Spa 2021 in East London in the UK Enterprise Awards, and Artisa tells us exactly what it is that sets it aside from competitors to ensure it remains in the top spot. “Our service is based on maximum convenience for customers - we offer longer operating hours than any other spa in East London as well as a walk-in service, all within a unique holistic atmosphere,” she says. “The choice of how to move forward on your journey is a personal decision, honoured without judgment.” Contact: Artisa Bitsi Company: Artisa Spa Web Address: May21638
