BISA is the British International Spa Association, a non-profit association set up in 1998 by a group of professionals within the beauty, spa and education fields with a common aim – to promote minimum standards of quality and service within the spa industry, and to improve and promote education for spa therapists. The association is entirely self funding, and all members of the council are volunteers, giving their time and expertise free of charge.
The association sets standards for spas in two ways: education and health improvement. It ensures high level training for staff and promotes the benefits of spa treatments for clients. This approach is successfully establishing the standards of quality and service world-wide in the fast growing international spa industry.
