I joined the spa when it first opened its doors in 2006 but took a short career break and came back two and a half years ago.
The staff and the scenery here at the Slieve Donard Spa, the therapist team have a close bond and the views from the spa are impeccable. I also love and have a strong passion for the ESPA brand.
I really just felt that making others feel good about themselves was the path I wanted to take in my career.
I was described as having gone above and beyond to suit the client’s individual needs and to make the guest feel comfortable, enabling the client to trust me and really relax into their treatment.
I believe that having the client’s trust is most important as it allows them to relax and enjoy the treatment. Key to that is listening to the client’s needs so I can focus on their main areas of concern so they are getting the most out of their treatment.
A back, face and scalp treatment; It’s ESPA’s hero treatment. I love it because it combines a range of treatments, including a back exfoliation, back massage with hot stones and a fully ESPA personalised facial including an oriental scalp massage. I feel the treatment is targeted at the main areas of concern for clients, allowing them to get the most out of the treatment. I feel that clients leave the treatment room feeling extremely relaxed afterwards, which it really rewarding.
Arrive early for your treatment, preferably a few hours before it begins so you can use all the facilities available. This allows the body and mind to unwind so that it is more receptive to the treatment.
Definitely the Celtic Journey. I particularly enjoy this treatment as it a ritual inspired by our unique surroundings. It includes a tea ceremony, foot ritual with sea salt scrub, ocean wrap, sea shell back massage and scalp massage.
