Louise - Head Therapist
Louise has been a fully qualified therapist for 13 years, working in Spa's in the UK as well as in Australia. She is also fully qualified in Sports Massage. She has been with us since the opening of Smallshaw Spa in 2016. She is very passionate about massage and enjoys witnessing the many benefits her treatments brings to help clients with a variety of aches and pains. Her speciality is deep tissue and sports massage and clients regularly book in with Louise to fantastic results. She is too kind but has said on numerous occasions ‘I have worked at a great number of Spa's but Smallshaw definitely tops them all by far”! Her hobbies include travelling, going to the gym and spending time with her family and friends and of course her beautiful dog. Married to Tom she has enjoyed many adventures after meeting him which include swimming with whale sharks and skydiving in South Africa.
Rachel - Reflexologist/ Spa Therapist
Rachel qualified as an aromatherapist in1995 and a reflexologist in1996. Both therapies have a deeply relaxing effect on clients. We are fortunate to also have Rachel as part of our family (jim’s sister), she joined Smallshaw Spa in 2017. Reflexology is a therapy where pressure is applied to points on the client’s feet, although this cannot be used to diagnose illness, it can pinpoint areas which are out of balance in the body. Clients lucky enough to experience this type of therapy can’t praise Rachel enough for the benefits they experience as well as how relaxed it makes them feel. Rachel, in her spare time, enjoys reading, walking and socialising with friends and family. Also having travelled extensively, highlights from time away from work, include learning to scuba dive in Australia and trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal.

Her attention to detail and her caring manner makes her a very popular choice for a lot of our clients. Polly, in her spare time enjoys socialising and attends lots of gigs, especially ones that her boyfriend plays the lead singer in!
