* BRAND NEW TREATMENT* Dermalux LED Light Therapy available as a stand alone facial or add-on to your usual treatment.
With over 25 years experience as a beauty therapist, I specialise in advanced anti-ageing facials and skin care treatments using Environ scientific skincare, Dr.Hauschka Organic, iCon Ultralift non-surgical face-lift and now,Dermalux LED light therapy. To enhance your beauty treatments, I also use and recommend the Heliocare SPF range and UK made Advanced Nutrition Programme food supplements for optimum skin health and well-being.
I am also a professional make-up artist (using Jane Iredale mineral skincare makeup) and intuitive holistic therapist offering clinical aromatherapy, reflexology, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) massage, Reiki and Hot Lava Shells massage.
Instead of offering standard "fluff and puff" facials, I prefer a more blended approach to anti-ageing, beauty and skincare, incorporating a unique combination of advanced technologies, skin analysis and natural healing techniques to help you achieve beautiful, healthy skin, naturally and effectively. All treatments are tailor-made to suit you.
Whether your skin-care concerns are anti-ageing, dull, dehydrated skin, problem skin and acne, sensitivity, rosacea, pigmentation and sun damage -or if you just need a complete skincare overhaul, I have a wide range of facials to help you achieve your goals.
For extra client comfort, heated blankets, a cosy duvet and a therapeutic support mattress are used on the couch and most facials include a luxurious hand and arm massage. All treatments will be carried out in accordance with Government Covid-19 hygiene requirements.
My private clinic is situated within Woodbridge Physiotherapy Practice on the outskirts of Woodbridge (just past the Shell Garage on the Northbound A12 bypass). Ideal for clients coming from Ipswich, Felixstowe and the surrounding areas. There is ample parking, a reception service, waiting room and accessible ground floor facilities. Appointments are available all day Wednesdays, Thursdays, Friday mornings and all day Saturday.
My Beauty Background.....
I have been working in the beauty industry for many years and my beauty therapy qualification is the Higher National Diploma in Beauty Therapy ( with Honours). This is one of the highest awards in beauty therapy skills and only offered at a select number of colleges in the UK. After leaving college, I worked for 15 years as a professional makeup artist and stylist in London as well as practising mainstream beauty therapy.
In the 90's, I advanced my training in a wide range of complementary therapies and was one of the UK's first clinically trained aromatherapists in the country. With my additional new skills, I worked for 5 years as a senior beauty/ holistic therapist and facialist at "The Sanctuary" Covent Garden, treating many high profile celebrities and beauty/fashion editors before progressing into a career as a beauty therapy lecturer in London.
My ultimate aim is to combine my extensive knowledge and experience to offer you the very best in facials, treatments and skincare advice. My clients come from all over the country to see me and I am proud to be considered the" glow-to" beauty therapist for my bespoke facials and complementary therapy treatments in the Woodbridge, Ipswich and Felixstowe area.
