Australian BodyCare wax products are enriched with natural antiseptic Tea Tree Oil.  It has been known and used by the Australian Aborigines for centuries because of its powerful antiseptic effects. The professional aftercare range is not only gentle on all skin types, but the tea tree oil promotes skin healing. It keeps the skin moisturised and protected from bacteria that can cause red bumps and skin irritation after hair removal.  It also keeps the skin softened, reducing problems with ingrown hairs, redness and itching.

Calgel is a professional one-step gel system available to certified technicians only.  It is a long-lasting gel that can be applied directly to the natural nail with no primers or bonders.  Due to its flexible nature, Calgel doesn’t chip and offers up to 6 weeks of colour.  It soaks off easily with no damage to the natural nail.  It is also suitable for vegans and not tested on animals.

Shared Beauty Secrets, home of Lava Shells. Lava Shells are the world’s first self-heating massage tools- a patented, all-natural, biodegradable heat technology. These genuine Tiger Clam lava shells are hand selected in the Philippine Islands. After bonding and polishing, they become a wonderful, hygienic massage tool.  They are either collected as refuse, discarded from the islanders, or as they are washed up naturally on shore.  No animals are harmed when repurposing these shells into the unique, ergonomically shaped massage tools they become. This allows them to become a natural extension to a therapists’ hands, delivering a continuous and seamless heated massage.   The angles and edges of the shells allow for deeper work into the muscles, easing away tension and knots.  Creating balance between the entire body and mind, this truly indulgent treatment will start as a luxury and become a necessity.

Hello, I'm Tess

Years of Experience

So, Me?  I qualified in 1988 so hopefully now I have lots of experience and not just old!  It would be easier to ask what I haven’t done.  I have worked in spas in England and abroad and on cruise liners, management to setting up solo.  In fact, every aspect of the industry I have done. I always seem to come back to hands on treatments and massage.  I have massaged lots of famous faces whilst working on Richard Bransons’ Necker Island in the Caribbean including Bruce Willis and Kevin Costner to name a few. (I asked Kevin Costner what he did for a living!) I set up the spa at Claridge’s. 
Then a six-year break as an air stewardess where I won a trip around the world!  Another adventure.

Bamboo, Herefordshire

Preferring the simpler life, I moved from London to Malvern and now Herefordshire.  My children Maia, Billy and Alex are my tribe!  My sense of adventure and lust for new places has become our caravan where given a moment’s notice I love to plan a trip with my children including Chewie and Toffee the dogs and even Meeko our Ragdoll cat!

I always like to try new things, not always successfully, but invariably with a sense of humour and a lesson learnt. And then sometimes it’s all about the balance so a quiet moment in my pjs with nothing but a good cup of tea, chocolate and a book and I am in my happy place.

What comes next?

I would love to retire in Spain with lots of sangria and my other passion food.  I have a list of places yet to visit and hopefully will grow old disgracefully, have adventures traveling and meet new people continuing to learn and share stories.
