Sarah qualified in beauty therapy and nail technology in 1993 and after working as a beauty therapist in a salon, really enjoyed massage and the benefits it could have on an individual. This led her on to qualify as a complementary therapist in 1996.

After gaining her Certificate in Education she began teaching at local colleges in 2000. Sarah is also qualified as a NVQ and VTCT nationally recognised Assessor and trainer.

Sarah's love of Reflexology and massage led her to study in more depth and in 2007 completed a Bachelor of Science degree in complementary medicine. The degree included clinical aromatherapy clinical reflexology, Therapeutic massage, baby massage, nutrition, stress management and Bach flowers. This has given her the opportunity to work in hospices and hospitals carrying out treatments on people with cancer, multiple sclerosis and other ailments, which has been a very rewarding and invaluable experience.

In 2007 Sarah achieved her dream of opening 'Escape' which has been described as a true escape, a wonderful calm and tranquil Beauty & Complementary therapy salon.

"I am delighted to say this has been a wonderful journey".

Sarah is a voluntary regional ovarian cancer coordinator and as a salon we support: The Eve Appeal with fundraising days and merchandise, please look out for our fundraising events.
