Karyn Glock, senior therapist at The Dorchester Spa, was announced this year’s runner up, also the third year in a row that one of The Dorchester Spas’ therapists receives the runner up nomination.

Each year, Kerstin and her team evaluate the spas within Great Britain that offer their beauty range and treatments and select a therapist who is an outstanding ambassador of the brand and its ethos to be ‘UK Therapist of the Year’.

Commenting on Jessica’s win, Sally Pedder, spa manager at The Dorchester Spa, said: “We are thrilled Jessica has once again received this high level of recognition from Kerstin Florian. She is a fantastic ambassador for the brand and The Dorchester Spa, and we congratulate her contribution to our commitment to being the top spa destination in London.”

An international presence in the spa and beauty arena, Kerstin Florian’s range combines the ancient healing traditions of Europe with a selection of products infused with the earth’s richest natural ingredients, sourced from the highest quality resources. The Dorchester Spa was the first spa in London to offer this luxury range and treatments.
