Mandy Oxley Swan
My passion is for all things skin. I’m a firm believer in the power of touch and how it can transform the skin externally, hence my facial is massage based. Having treated a variety of skin conditions over the years, I provide expert advice both on skincare and wellbeing with every consultation.
I have over 20 years experience as a facialist and am trained in Environ, Aveda, Dermalogica and Balance Me. I designed the Balance Me Signature Facial and work with the Balance Me skincare range, as their range is natural but results-oriented, which suits my philosophy completely. I’m a strong believer in continued learning and have studied widely in other areas of health and beauty such as LaStone Therapy®, Cosmetic Studies, Advanced Skin Analysis with Florence Barrett-Hill and the Natural Face Lift Massage (Facial Rejuvenation).
Following my qualification in 1988 (BTEC Diploma in Beauty Therapy) at the London College of Fashion, I worked as a facialist in London and the Cayman Islands. During the last 10 years, I developed and managed the beauty practice within Shine Holistic, a complementary health clinic in Stoke Newington and also trained therapists within the UK to become facialists.
