About VeniVici Health Club & Urban Spa Spa
VENIVICI…. your Sanctuary of Wellness
Venivici Health Club + Urban Spa was born out of the Sheer Disruptive Influence by the visioner, Arinola Adeniyi. Disruptive influence celebrates the desire to be different and do something different. She believed there had to be more to climbing the Corporate Ladder and Executives do not have to carry out their duties in a state of permanent exhaustion.
She envisioned a Healthy Work-Life Balance for all: With a conscious effort at helping others achieve optimum well being.
The Journey began in May 1999 Using a completely ‘novel’ medium in Nigeria to help others cope with the demands of Modern-day Living Syndrome. It was indeed referred to as ‘alien’.
Venivici has, however, in the last 16 years effervesced and gone on to become a leading brand in the Spa and Wellness Industry. It has indeed made such a remarkable impact int the provision of Holistic and Alternative Therapy.
