Naomi Spencer – Manager & Holistic Therapist
Whilst the beauty industry may be forever changing she loves the transforming power it can bring to clients. She never tires of seeing the healing and relaxing effects that a good quality treatment expertly given can achieve.
Her favourite treatment to give is a deep tissue massage. As she says, “Once tried, never forgotten…..our clients can be rather nervous to give this treatment a go, but countless times they return again and again! The biggest compliment we can receive is a happy, contented and returning client.”
The beauty problem she would most like to solve is – Skin Confidence. Beauty really is skin deep and we feel we are able to help give you that confidence , teach you how to look after your skin from home, and of course give you the confidence in us as professionals.
As a busy working mum the one treatment she would most like to receive is an Aromatherapy Massage. Rest, relaxation, warm massage couch with fluffy towels, and carefully blended oils with a very professional touch – Absolute bliss…..
When she is not working at Holistic Hands she loves long dog walks in the countryside with her family and indulging in a cheeky glass or two of Prosecco!

Michelle Jarps – Senior Beauty Therapist
Why do you love the beauty industry?
For Michelle, beauty is all about looking after the individual and helping them to feel special. Each of our clients will experience the treatments we offer differently and I love that my job involves making sure they get the most out of the time they have with us and I really enjoying helping them to feel pampered and special.
The treatment that I most love to give is an Elemis Facial. The products are wonderful and they feel so fantastic and luxurious on the skin. Each of the facials has been designed with a particular action in mind, because of this not only do you get pampered but you can be guaranteed that you’ll look fabulous too.
If you could solve one common beauty problem what would it be and why?
The one beauty issue I would love to solve is to help women to find their perfect shade of foundation. Seeking expert advice is the key to banishing this problem. Spending a few minutes to get your foundation professionally matched to your skin colour is so worthwhile. You can do this in a beauty salon, or at a beauty counter, just don’t try and do it yourself
If you could receive one treatment offered by the centre what would it be and why?
My desert island treatment would have to be an Elemis Facial Anti Aging facial. It’s 1 hour 15 mins of complete and utter bliss, it is so relaxing and you can see fantastic results to.
When she’s not working Michelle loves to relax by spending time with her family, catching up with friends and walking the dog, she might even treat herself to some a spa day! Failing that she’d settle for a hot bath, followed by watching Moulin Rouge and a delicious Chinese meal.

Michelle Salmon – Beauty Therapist
Michelle is a real people person and loves working as a beauty therapist because of the one to one contact she has with our clients. In particular she loves the ongoing trusting relationship that develops between a therapist and client and the opportunities this brings to help our clients feel great about themselves. She also loves the fact that the industry is constantly evolving and that there are always new products and techniques to learn.
Her favourite treatment to give is the Elemis Pro-Collagen facial. It is such a relaxing & calming treatment to give and clients always feel truly pampered after this treatment. For Michelle the one beauty problem she wishes she could solve with her magic wand is the issue of women’s facial hair, after all ladies, who wants it!
Out of the treatments available at Holistic Hands the one she would most love to receive is the Elemis Pro-collagen facial – “I love this treatment, the Elemis fragrances can’t be beaten and my skin always feels amazing after this deluxe pamper treatment.”
To relax and unwind she loves a bit of retail therapy, indulging in some yummy Italian Food and watching the move Notting Hill.
