Meet our team at Essentials Beauty & Health Clinic
In order to give you the best possible service, and to stay at the front of industry developments, all our staff are fully qualified therapists and all undertake further training to update and extend their qualifications. Everyone likes doing the variety of the treatments offered at Essentials Beauty & Health Clinic (we would get bored doing the same treatment all day, every day!) but we all have some treatments that we may consider as ‘favourites’. Our aim is to make every visit to us a wonderful experience, giving you ‘uncommonly good’ service and leaving you feeling better than when you arrived – be that physically or emotionally.
As well as owning the salon, Pat is a working complementary therapist. She specialises in forearm massage, but loves any of the other complementary therapies too. Apart from working in the salon, Pat has also done Corporate massage and has taught complementary therapy and counselling skills.
She has been involved in cat rescue for over 30 years and so shares her home with assorted cats! Other than the rescue work, outside of work, Pat loves reading, especially books that are, or are based on, ‘true life’. She likes walking and loves the sunshine!
Stacy is our senior therapist and salon manager. She has lots of experience having previously worked in salons, Spas, on board cruise ships and teaching beauty courses. Her passion is skin care (although she too loves waxing and says it’s difficult to pick out favourites as she likes doing all the treatments). She has bags of energy and ideas!.
She lives with her husband, Jack, and their rescue dog, Rosie. Outside of work she likes reading – her favourite author is Sophie Kinsella – and she likes shopping …. Her favourite musical is ‘Blood Brothers’.
Liz is one of our senior therapists, an experienced therapist who joined our team having previously worked at other salons and spas. She likes the variety of the treatments we offer, as well as the fact we are busy and have a great team!
Liz is another of the team who loves reading (accompanied by a cuppa!) – her favourite books are romance novels, especially those by Danielle Steel. She also loves clothes shopping and volunteering with children doing rock climbing!! She is engaged to Dan and they are getting married next year.
Chloe, our other senior therapist, joined us from a city centre salon, where she had worked her way up from ‘Saturday girl’ to Senior therapist. Having been in the industry for 9 years she was looking for ‘a new and exciting opportunity’ with the chance to offer a larger range of therapies and be part of a larger team. Like the rest of the team, she is an animal lover and has cat at home, called Alfie.
Outside of work, Chloe likes horse riding and going out for nice meals and meeting up with friends. Her favourite books and films are the Harry Potter series, and she also likes reading books by Adele Parks and Jojo Moyles. She has taken up running again, though at present can’t say she actually enjoys it! 🙂
