ITEC Massage therapist
CIBTAC International Aesthetic treatment /Beauty Therapist
ROC Semi-permanent Make up international license
Diploma in various therapies and products
I grew up in an environment surrounded by doctors, including my grandfather, father, brother and sister, who all practiced western medicine. I first became interested in alternative therapies when my father and grandmother fell ill. Looking after them made me realise the limitation of western medicine, and the need – and the potential - for physical and mental care that alternative treatments can provide.
After completing a course on aromatherapy offered by Neal’s Yard Remedies in Japan, I moved to the UK and studied anatomy and physiology, aromatherapy, reflexology, shiatsu, and pre- and post-natal pregnancy care. My qualifications as an all-round therapist include: complementary therapies by ITEC, beauty therapy by CIBTAC, and semi-permanent make-up by ROC (international license).
Before opening our salon – nao therapy – I worked at luxury spas, beauty salons and at a ‘shiatsu’ and acupuncture clinic visited by internationally recognised artists and celebrities. This experience made me realise that what I really want to do is to offer personalised treatments to all my customers, which led to the opening of nao therapy.
Our salon offers diverse beauty treatments to provide both physical and emotional well-being, and is visited by various customers including those living abroad.
As a qualified beauty and holistic therapist, I also offer technical training to other salon owners and therapists.
