Hello, please let me introduce myself to those I haven’t met yet, my name is Carol Anne. I began my journey as a Beauty/Holistic/Spa therapist in 2004 where I gained a strong foundation at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews. Travel was always a dream for me and so after 2 years as a Spa Therapist, I joined Virgin as an inflight beauty therapist.
I used to treat the guests mid flight in first class. As you can imagine the joys of turbulence made things interesting at times. It was an incredible opportunity to travel, have fun and get paid while doing it! After the service was sadly made redundant I stayed with the Virgin family and went onto work in the Kasbah Tamadot, Morocco, one of Richard Branson’s property’s. His mother Eve spent a lot of time there and has done some amazing work for the community. It was a great experience, giving treatments to the rich and famous, living in a beautiful secluded part of the world in the Atlas Mountains. Alas the seclusion and donkey transportation gave me itchy feet and I moved on to live in Switzerland.
Here I was the Spa Manager in a private ski in ski out chalet- problem being here I couldn’t ski... I did learn thanks to some very patient work mates! I had the pleasure of treating lots of sore ski bodies and specialised in sports and remedial massage. Once the snow melted I tried out my sea legs and began working in the amazing world of super yachts. Possibly some of the most interesting guests I’ve ever treated; rich, famous, royalty, there was never a dull moment. I literally went around the world in a boat, well three different boats in total.
One of the great things about having this job I love is that I can take it anywhere with me. I moved to New Zealand in 2012 and set up my own business in Wanaka. After over 3 fabulous years, family was calling and I decided to move back to Scotland
I continued my career in the beauty/spa industry and was lucky enough to work for ESPA as a UK and International training manager from 2015 to 2020. I traveled around the globe from America to Hong Kong and everywhere in between, training therapists in five star spas how to perform treatments up to Ayurveda level and provide amazing service for their guest.
You can come to me directly at 'The Secret Garden Rooms' based in Kirkcaldy, working from a peaceful cabin in my garden. Offering Facial and Massage Treatments. I am fully qualified and insured to offer relaxing experiences to those currently undergoing treatment for Cancer or in remission.
