“I qualified with a IIHHT Diploma in Holistic Therapies in 2003, and have been continuously updating my skills and knowledge over the years. I am a full member of the Complementary Health Professionals.  I have completed the Penny Brohn Cancer Care Certificate in ‘Working with people with cancer’, and worked for 10 years with the West Suffolk Cancer Support Group.  In 2007 I diversified my practice to include Beauty Therapy to complement my existing therapies.  I believe in an integrated approach to beauty and wellbeing.  I believe I have a kind gentle nature and hardworking ethics.”

Clare Smith – Beauty Therapist

I made the decision to go into beauty therapy because I love to make people feel good about themselves, I’m very particular about everything I do, I’m a bit of a perfectionist! I have a real passion for all things related to skincare. I can help you reach your skincare goals. I specialise in Facials, Massage, Waxing and Threading.

I have been in the industry for over 10 years and love that I’m constantly learning and developing new skills along the way in this ever-changing industry.

Ying Chan – Yoga Practitioner

In 2016 I went on a yoga teacher training course to deepen my own practice, but once I finished I found I had been given a wonderful gift to share and introduce my passion with people. I love the fact that yoga is open to everyone regardless of your age, race, or gender. I am a forever student, and love learning from new workshops and courses, passing on the knowledge and insight I gain, but I always learn from my students too. I have practised all styles of yoga, and love them all for their own reasons. Personally I find that flow is better fit all round for the biggest group of people. I love that I can borrow from other styles and add bits in to my own classes. I teach a gentle flow style, with a bit of fun added.

Jennifer Riches BAcC – Acupuncture

My journey to becoming a qualified professional has taken almost three years of study at The Acupuncture Academy, Royal Leamington Spa (taking a short break to have one of my lovely babies!). After six months of supervised practice, I am now qualified to deliver acupuncture treatments with satellite supervision from my tutors at TAA; meaning that I am fully supported with thorough treatment planning  through delivery of individual case studies and in depth research into your illness or issue. With this in mind, my current treatment prices reflect my pre-qualification status and will be reviewed on completion of the course in August 2019. A member of the British Acupuncture Council, I am now very excited to be providing acupuncture in the Cambridge and West Suffolk area.
