A previous customer says

Today I took part in the Swedish Massage Diploma. Vicky was an amazing teacher - very gifted and thorough in her teaching. I learnt so much - so much more than I was expecting and I feel so confident moving forward to start working on my case studies and really excited by it. I'm so pleased that I signed up for the course. It was such a great day. Thank you so much Vicki.

Threading Course

Threading is a traditional form of hair removal which involves a therapist removing hair using cotton thread. The procedure uses 100% cotton thread which is twisted and pulled along the skin’s surface, lifting unwanted hair directly from the root. The hair is caught in the travelling thread and fully removed; a slight pinch is felt, but is only momentary. By being lifted from the root, the effect lasts longer with little redness. Unlike waxing or depilatory creams, threading is a gentle method which does not remove the top layer of the skin. As it is a natural form of hair removal, it is great for all skin types, especially sensitive and mature skins.
