Meet Your Secret Spa Team: AmandaMarch 30th 2016
Here at Your Yoga we see you as part of the family, so we're giving you chance to meet another part of the family – the lovely Secret Spa team! First up this week we're meeting Amanda Bell...
1. WHAT TREATMENTS DO YOU PROVIDE AT THE SECRET SPA?
2. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN THIS PROFESSION?
I've always loved massage and helping others feel better so it seemed a good choice for me.
3. WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS/EXPERIENCE IN THE TREATMENTS YOU PROVIDE?
I Have a Diploma in Massage Therapy from 2 of the industries top governing bodies – C.I.B.T.A.C and I.T.E.C. I have over 7 years experience working independently in spas and with physiotherapists.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
My favourite thing is the job satisfaction of making someone feel wonderful.
5. WHAT IS THE MOST ENJOYABLE THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE SECRET SPA?
Apart from the beautiful building we work in, the people are all so very friendly. It's not like work at all.
6. WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND PEOPLE TRY OUT YOUR TREATMENTS?
I think everyone should try my Massage as my customers keep coming back for more. It's deeply relaxing and therapeutic.
7. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING ONE OF YOUR TREATMENTS FOR THE FIRST TIME?
Drink plenty of water after a massage and don't drink alcohol as massage increases blood circulation making alcohol more potent.
8). WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE BIGGEST BENEFIT OF MASSAGE THERAPY, FROM A CLIENT'S POINT OF VIEW?
The biggest benefit of a massage is the feel-good factor – a happy hormone called serotonin gets released making you feel happy and relaxed instantly.
9). HOW MUCH DOES YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH PHYSIOTHERAPISTS INFLUENCE HOW YOU TREAT YOUR CLIENTS AT THE SECRET SPA?
I've learnt so much from working with physiotherapists but mostly client care and confidentiality. I treat all my clients with the same level of dignity and respect.
10). WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ANYONE WHO IS NERVOUS OR UNSURE ABOUT COMING FOR THEIR FIRST MASSAGE?
A first Massage can be a daunting experience but rest assured you are in safe hands. You'll be given privacy to get changed and towels are used for your modesty which will be protected at all times. I'll always ask about how much pressure you would like so you're comfortable at all times.
