Welcome to A Touch Of Beauty !
My name is Tina, I trained as a beauty therapist when I was 16 years old ( quite some time ago now ! ). The industry was not quite for me back then, so, with dreams of success and advancement, I headed into the corporate game. My specialty eventually became business development. Branding, sales and market placement. I just loved seeing businesses grow.
Eventually, it was time to back myself and create my own destiny so I bought a small business as a development project. It was a little struggling beauty salon based in Pahurehure called Complexions. The poor owner was suffering from staff stealing and all sorts of issues so one by one we ironed them out, changed the name, and Im still here !
I hadnt intended to work hands-on in the business, it wasn’t until I had to fill in for a sick team member that I people started to tell me that I had healing hands. Clients started to just want me to work on them as they loved my touch.
I found this curious and so started to learn Reiki, from there I went on to learn about the amazing powerful healing benefits of essential oils. I studied the science in behind the oils and how they work therapeutically and then worked with older clients that suffered from joint pains and arthritis. I just love working with the plant kingdom, I believe that we have much to learn from nature and feel that Gaia really does have all the solutions we need to bring this world back into harmony.
I also have very, very sensitive skin. I have to be very careful what I use on my skin and my body has intolerances that I need to manage through diet.
This together with my knowledge of plants led me to found The Still Room. I extended my knowledge through numerous trips overseas learning from the best in advanced dermal therapy and product formulation. I also spent countless hours learning from some of the most amazing medicine people on plant healing. Together with my own pharmaceutical knowledge of anatomy, I feel really proud in personally creating a range of products that work holistically with the skin.
The Still Room products have been designed to ” feed ” the skin cells with vital nutrients that are required to help the skin to restore itself. I think of it as topical nutrition.
Its also important to me that the botanicals we use are grown sustainably and organically. So we now grow most of the herbs and plant materials now down at our own distillery in the Hauraki district. You can find out more about this over at our facebook page @thestillroomnz
Our treatments at A Touch Of Beauty are truly unique now, in that we use our own ingredients but we also infuse our knowledge of vibrational medicine, energy thought work, body treatments and skin treatments together with the healing properties of plants.
Most of our treatments are customised so we start with 30min, 60min or 90 mins sessions and then individualise each treatment for you specifically. This way, you can be guaranteed a truly authentic experience with an engaged therapist that has your best interests at heart.
