Poorly trained spa workers ‘could harm tourist industry’


Share post:

HEALTH AND Wellness educator Patricia Berry-Greenidge thinks that inadequately trained spa personnel can do a lot of harm to the tourist industry.

This is because tourists looking for the high quality of service experienced outside the island could be in for a big disappointment at some spas, the principal of the Personal Body Healthcare Clinic & School of Holistic Therapies argued.

Berry-Greenidge said there were people operating spas who were not fully trained.

“[Quality service] is an issue because . . . this is a tourist island. Barbados is known around the world as one of the top places,” she told reporters recently.

“It is an issue. That is why the school started in the first place. It has been an issue for many years that people need to be qualified and to be recognised because tourists come into Barbados and the majority of them have actually experienced [spa treatments] worldwide, and therefore they are expecting a high quality of service.” (TY)
