Sothys Networking Event

Beauty Tips , Facial Treatments , Uncategorized

I would like to share with you my experiences of a fantastic four days consisting of Sothys networking, workshops & product demonstrations in Manchester.

I throughly enjoyed the opportunity to discuss our experiences with Sothys treatments and try the facials for ourselves, this gave me further insight into what our clients experience, such as the amount of pressure to use through to the feel of different massage techniques.

My favourite treatment was the Eye Contour as it was different in that it specifically targets the eye area with great results. It reaffirmed to me that Sothys in-depth research into the ingredients really are innovative and exclusive; this event enabled me to appreciate their research and forward thinking nature – as I found from my results of trying the Eye Contour treatment.

I loved the porcelain spoons used on my eyes in the treatment as they have a duel function, to aid the creams penetrate the skin and the coolness of the spoons soothed and relieved pressure in the eye area. I had further benefits that I didn’t even expect, puffiness reduced, dark circles minimised, overall my eyes and eye area looked brighter.

We had lots of time to discuss different topics relating to treatments and during coffee breaks the chance to meet like minded people. I felt ready to go back to work happy to pass on my further Sothys knowledge to our clients.

What Is Reiki?


Hi, I’m Sarah, I am passionate about beauty and wellbeing which marries perfectly with my strong holistic background. I carry out many wonderful holistic treatments at BeautyQuest and I also volunteer at a local Oncology unit performing holistic treatments. Seeing the wonderful results from the patients has made me even more aware of how valuable treatments like Reiki can really benefit someone from both inner and outer wellbeing.

Reiki restores natural balance to the body and can also provide deep relaxation, which can evoke a sense of peace and wellbeing on the emotions, mind, spirit, as well as the physical body. It is totally safe and appropriate making it suitable for everyone – children and adults. It benefits people in wonderful and extraordinary ways. Reiki can be performed sitting down or as we prefer, lying down to receive the full benefits of the treatment. It is based on energy fields and balancing the body, therefore my hands remain stationary, but hover a short distance away from the body in different areas for a few minutes to release the energy from myself and the client.

After the treatment you may experience a range of emotions and feelings, this is normal. I will always discuss how you found the treatment/feelings, advice on ways you can continue the benefits at home. I will always advise to drink plenty of water and rest to allow the body time to accept the Reiki.

I like thought provoking quotes and particularly this one as it makes you feel grounded “If you are ever in an uncomfortable situation, put yourself in a bubble and imagine everyone bouncing off you.” I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog; if you would like to know more about Reiki or any other holistic treatment then, feel free to call the salon. Sarah :-)

What is Environ All About?

Beauty Tips , Facials

Environ products and facials are based on Vitamins and antioxidants, and when these ingredients are combined, they help to heal, repair and protect against free radical and UV damage. Vitamin A being one of the key ingredients having a corrective affect on the skin and of course anti-ageing, the word we most love to hear and believe in.

Vitamin A, C and E also helps to stimulate the natural production of elastin and collagen, something that unfortunately depletes as we age. Environ is all about results and is more cosmeceutical as opposed to cosmetic, penetrating through the layers of the skin rather than just sitting on the surface. There are many ranges in Environ, all designed for different and specific skin types allowing each individual a bespoke regime. With our conscientious help, you will see a new, improved and youthful you for the future! If you would like to know how Environ can be benefit your skin, pop into the salon or give us a call.
