Innovation
At Champneys we bring together the most pioneering collection of treatments, classes, philosophies and wellbeing expertise. In fact, our innovative health concepts have inspired generations. As a result, we stand as one of the leading wellness destination spas in not just the UK, but the world. With significant investments made at both Forest Mere and Tring in the past 12 months, and big plans for Henlow and Springs also, our resorts offer some of the most advanced and cutting-edge facilities.
History
Our story began in 1925; born from the ideals of the visionary naturopath Stanley Lief. Opening as a health farm and known as the Nature Cure Resort, it was the first of its kind in the UK. Having been diagnosed with a seemingly incurable heart condition in 1890, a young Stanley sought a solution in the practice of osteopathy and diet. Self-cured by the age of 16, he went on to study naturopathy and ultimately, founded what we now know as Champneys in Tring after acquiring the estate from the Rothschild family. Pioneering the concept of holistic health and naturopathy, the reputation of Lief’s resort grew. With patients visiting from far and wide, its success was rapid and ultimately, lasting. Indeed, his embrace of holism and healthy diets and recognition of stress as a negative influence on health can still be seen in today’s medicine and practices.
