Meet Your Secret Spa Team: SuzanneMay 11th 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! This week we're meeting 'The Hairy Godmother' herself, Suzanne Brady...
1. WHAT TREATMENTS DO YOU PROVIDE AT THE SECRET SPA?
At the secret spa we provide a wide range of treatments. We cover all aspects of female and male waxing, both strip and hot waxing is available. We have a range of other treatments including facials, Microdermabrasion Theraderm facial peel, Dermaroller all natural body scrub, fake tanning, manicures /pedicures and tinting brows/ lashes.
2. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN THIS PROFESSION?
Although I always had an interest in the industry from an early age – the driving reason was the fact that I'm a people person. I don't see what I do as a job, I genuinely love it and I love the social aspect of the profession. I work with amazing people every day and I'm very lucky!
3. WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS/EXPERIENCE IN THE TREATMENTS YOU PROVIDE?
I've covered all NVQ qualifications to a Level 4 standard. I am trained in Polaris laser/red vein hair removal, Dermaroller and Theraderm facial peeling. As a therapist you never stop training – there's always something new and exciting on offer!
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I really don't class my job as work because I absolutely love what I do! I've met some truly amazing people during my time as a therapist... I'm blessed. It's never a chore to get up in the morning.
5. WHAT IS THE MOST ENJOYABLE THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE SECRET SPA?
What can I say about Your Yoga Studio? It's awesome, and I'm so pleased to work there. The building complements my treatments perfectly.
6. WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND PEOPLE TRY OUT YOUR TREATMENTS?
I value my clients' opinions tremendously – so I always look to them when it comes to recommendations for my treatments:
“Fantastic! Lovely relaxing environment, professional and friendly. And by far the best wax treatment I've had. Thank you Suzanne. Looking forward to booking some other treatments too” - Katie Smith, client
“Suzanne's room is gorgeous and immediately makes you feel relaxed – I would highly recommend paying Suzanne a visit!” - Ally Griffin, client
7. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING ONE OF YOUR TREATMENTS FOR THE FIRST TIME?
I've been a therapist for over 20 years – my professional manner will always make you feel comfortable and at ease. You have nothing to worry about!
8. HOW DID YOUR NICKNAME OF 'THE HAIRY GODMOTHER' COME ABOUT?
To this day, I have a great relationship with the amazing team at the Everyman & Playhouse theatres, who gave me my nickname 'The Hairy Godmother, Therapist to the Stars'. I had the honour of working with Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall whilst she was starring in the Playhouse production of Antony and Cleopatra. My nickname has stuck to this day and I often work with their stars!
9. OUT OF ALL THE BEAUTY TREATMENTS THAT YOU OFFER, IS THERE ONE YOU FIND PARTICULARLY POPULAR WITH CLIENTS?
I find my most popular treatments are waxing and facials – but again, I like to look at what my clients say:
“The quickest, calmest, best and most enjoyable waxing ever! Suzanne knows her stuff like no one's business, and she's a lovely person as well – do not go ANYWHERE else!” - Kellie O'Shea, client
“Can't not express how amazing Suzanne is. I have never felt so comfortable and relaxed when being waxed, hence why I travel from the Wirral to use her and have been for the last year. Thank you Suzanne!” - Hannah Dufley, client
“Vegan facial – it's the most unique spa experience yet. Afterwards I felt and looked brand new! My skin looks so radiant. I say definitely visit Suze and try it out for yourself because you won't regret it at all!” - Tasmin Beresford, client
10. SOME PEOPLE MAY BE NERVOUS ABOUT GETTING WAXED FOR THE FIRST TIME. IS THERE ANY ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE THEM?
You're coming to 'The Hairy Godmother' - I don't get my nickname for no reason! One of the hardest things to do is relax, but trust me it helps. So take a deep breath and exhale – you're in safe hands!
