Melanie Gaynor –

Do you love doing facials but feel a bit stale? Do you feel like you really need a new massage routine and some new moves? Would you love to extend your skills or learn something new? Would you like to learn traditional holistic facial techniques such as Gua Sha and Kansa Wand? If you are a Beauty Therapist, Facialist, Skin Therapist or Massage Therapist who answered yes to any of those, read on.

I have been a Beauty Therapist for over 25 years, I absolutely love our industry and it thrills me to have the skills and experience to help our industry grow. After a time spent working in different settings and many, many happy hours spent learning, I discovered my true skill and passion are therapeutic facials. I have a strong foundation in European Techniques, which are naturally complimented by other methods such as Gua Sha, Kansa Wand and Natural Facelift Massage. This means I have much to share that can help you take your facial treatments to the next level and set you apart from other Beauty Therapists.

If you’re a recently graduated or experienced Beauty Therapist, the natural holistic modalities are a great addition to your repertoire. Learn how to include new techniques into to your regular facial work and be aligned with the growing trend towards a much more natural approach.

Workshops are deliberately kept small to enable you to get the most out of them with plenty of time practice and attention throughout the session. One-on-One Training is also available.  Next available workshops:-
