Massage Therapy


Marsha Banks

I have over 20 years' experience practising & training in various areas of beauty therapy.

After studying at The London College of Fashion, I was offered employment at a beautiful day spa in Mayfair. I loved the buzz and energy of being in a boutique London spa!

I was given the opportunity to train in microdermabrasion and chemical peels, and after amazing results I decided to move into laser hair removal clinics, where I became a supervisor and trained new therapists in the science of hair removal & skin rejuvenation.

I have been lucky enough to travel the globe and work in some of the world's leading hotel spas, during which time I gained valuable experience in treatment excellence and customer care.

On returning to the UK, I began training beauty therapists in 5* treatments standards and became a trainer for ESPA, where I spent many years training in beautiful holistic treatments and routines.

In recent years, I have focused on massage and holistic therapies. I found a new passion for guiding therapists through workshops in Grounding & Energy work, however, I found clients that I had had for many years were going elsewhere for treatments such as gel nails, lash lift and brow design, therefore, I branched out into these new and expanding areas of beauty and who doesn’t love the instant results of these treatments!

I love having the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and enthusiasm for the subjects I teach.
