SERENITY BAY THERAPIES
Serenity Bay Therapies is a luxury massage therapy salon based in the heart of Inverclyde.
In 2013, Having been trained to HND level in Complementary Therapies for a number of years, I decided it was time to further my career in spa therapies and see more of the world.
I was fortunate enough to be hand picked by Steiner Transocean Ltd - one of the most prestigious spa companies at sea and around the world - to study at their private school in London, where I'd then progress onto employment on a major cruise line.
Having undergone intensive 6* Luxury Massage training at the Steiner Academy, I was then chosen to work for Disney Cruise Line within their 6* Senses Spa onboard the Disney Dream vessel in December 2013.
During my time onboard, I learned a variety of luxury treatments and techniques from all over the world - from India to Hawaii and Thailand. I was not only based onboard the ship, but also frequently massaged on Disney's private island in the heart of the Bahamas, "Castaway Cay" - namely on the secluded beach, "Serenity Bay".
The time spent at both Steiner and Disney have been without a shadow of a doubt the best experiences of my life (and career) to date, however I quickly spotted a lack of these luxury treatments in our Inverclyde community - also a fantastic port to the cruise liners. With some help from the Princes Trust and Business Gateway, I was able to bring these fantastic treatments home to Inverclyde for our community to experience and enjoy.
In September 2014, I opened the doors of Serenity Bay Therapies to no clientele! To date, I have single-handedly treated over 2,000 individual clients - many I am grateful to say are now regulars.
In 2018 & 2019, I trained extensively in the specialised field of Oncology spa therapies. In 2019, I launched OCEAN Therapies, which offers a full treatment menu for those receiving treatment for Cancer or in remission.
At Serenity Bay, clients affected by Cancer can enjoy safe and adapted therapies around and after Cancer treatment, from massage therapies to nail services, scalp treatment and facials. We use and stock a full wellbeing product range offering aromatherapy in safe doses and designed to help with some of the harsh side effects of Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and Cancer medications.
In 2019, Serenity Mama & Baby services were launched.
Serenity Mama offering pre-natal pregnancy treatments to expectant mothers, and Serenity Baby offering Bespoke Baby Massage lessons to parents and carers.
Between 2020 and 2021, I have re-visited many Beauty Therapy treatments I trained in some time ago, and I've been busy re-training and refreshing my qualifications in this field.
Clients will be pleased to hear that Serenity Beauty will launch in Summer 2021, offering Beauty Therapies within Serenity Bay!
It is not only my personal aim, but the key of Serenity Bay Therapies, to deliver exceptional qualitative treatments to each and every guest at an affordable price.
Within each and every treatment, we look forward to helping our guests to experience a little bit of the paradise that exists at Serenity Bay.
