Everyone that visits our Wellbeing centre has a story…
At one of our recent family meetings we were discussing how as therapists and teachers we meet some truly inspiring people everyday. An important part of our roles are to really listen to our clients and their stories they have to share.
Then we thought, how great it would be to share all our stories too!
This week we spoke to Charlotte from The Perfect Pamper

How did you become a therapist?
When I was pregnant I knew it was time for a career change. Working long hours as a restaurant manager was not going to work for me. After receiving a life changing massage from Amy Taylor back in 2007, I knew that massage and beauty was going to be my new career path.
I firstly trained in Indian Head massage and continued my training with City College in Holistic therapies including: Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Swedish Massage.
After completing this course I then went on to study Sports and remedial massage and The Southern School of Sports Massage.
I have also trained in beauty facials and manicures and pedicures in separate courses.
What do you love about being a therapist?
There are so many reasons I love what I do, where to start. I am lucky that my career is quite diverse. I can be working across the country organising events with my team or just as happy at my treatment room giving a 1 to 1 massage on my clients.
I love the satisfaction of helping my clients to achieve and improve their posture and reducing pain caused by poor posture. I am lucky to have clients dating back to my early days till now. I have shared their physical and emotional ups and the downs over the years and I feel honoured that they still turn to me to help them when they need it.
Prepping clients for a sports event such as Brighton or London Marathon with pre event massage is most gratifying Over their hard months of training right up to the day, I find rewarding to say the least. Massaging competitors at the finish line helping is incredibly fulfilling. I have worked at numerous events for different charities over the years giving clients light relief of assisting with the recovering process and listening to their training and race journey stories at the end of their amazing achievement.
Working at houses and venues across London and Brighton providing treatments at occasions such as hen parties and baby showers are lovely to attend. Often these clients have never received a massage and we are their first. The enjoyment of giving someone their first massage and them loving it is incredibly satisfying.
What is your greatest professional achievement?
Working at the F1 in Silverstone is up there with the best. We stayed onsite with our Pop up Pamper boutique canopy tent. We offered hair, make up, massage and beauty treatments to the general public. This was a high profile event and my team of 6 beauty and massage therapists worked in perfect unison to deliver an impeccable event, I was and still now and continue to be very proud of my team.
How do you relax?

What is top of your bucket list?
