HOLISTIC BEAUTY THERAPIST
& CLINIC MANAGER
Hi…this is me, Mihaela Devereaux, your holistic beauty therapist, proud to lead and manage the Cotswold branch of Beautoxology in the beautiful historical town of Stow-on-the-Wold
I am a firm believer in the “power of human touch” - and now, more than ever, we need this!
I have always been woman-centred and my facials are primarily designed for women, although gentlemen are always warmly welcomed to our clinic.
I firmly believe that my treatments are more than just nourishing for your skin - they also provide nourishment for your mind, body and soul! My proactivity in promoting a sense of inner well-being, comes from understanding that every client receives a bespoke and nurturing treatment, tailored to both their physiological and psychological needs.
My passion and dedication is fulfilled knowing that our clients are leaving our wellness clinic feeling more beautified on the outer, and relaxed, balanced and reset from the inner.
With the VTCT qualification in skin and facial massage, plus having undertaken other facial training and courses, my unique facials have taken our clients by storm and more than ever with the demands of a complex world, emotional instability and human inertia people are going back to basics to restore and heal.
Pranic healing, from the Sanskrit word ‘prana’, for energy, is an alternative medicine system that promotes healing by increasing and moving your life force, or ‘vital energy’. The stresses of daily life take their toll on our energy and in turn this is then manifested in our face:
“When people initially attend clinic I can clearly see tension and pain etched in their face and it’s in the art of my facials that this is released, they instantly look brighter and younger”.
However my own journey of self-development is lifelong and my love for learning new techniques leads me to constantly train in new applications and methods and understand the effectiveness of wholesome and organic products.
My passion for facial sculpting massages, have set not only a new purpose but have sent me on a journey to explore and grow knowledge in the concept of the ‘spiritual facial’
When I’m not in clinic my own spiritual fulfillment comes with spending time with my son Luca, walking in the countryside, dancing, reading or traveling.
