The treatments and Products I have chosen to use
These are the treatments I offer, and the suppliers I have chosen to partner with. It is important to me that the products I use are environmentally friendly and free from cruelty and chemical nasties, but still produce great results. We no longer have to choose between ethical and effective.
I have chosen to partner with Medik8, a cosmeceutical company based in the UK. The ‘8’ represents the brand’s eight core values: simple, tailored, clean, professional, free-thinking, artisan, technology and ethical.
The products are made by hand in the UK. With only three exceptions, all are vegan. They contain active ingredients with technology which penetrates the lowest level of the epidermis (the basal layer) where the cells are made and work their magic.
Setting Medik8 aside from most skincare companies is its technology: bioavailable ingredients, chirally correct molecules, chemical penetration enhancement, therapeutic concentrations, time-release delivery systems, enhanced stability and Ph balance.
These facials liberate skincare customers from the choice between results or experience.
Peels have evolved so much with all the extensive amount of research that has been carried out. Medik8 is at the forefront of this and have just launched their new Peels:
By lowering the pH to 2.2 it is possible to leave the Peels on the skin for longer causing less irritation and a shorter down time.
The Peels all have Arginine as a main ingredient; it is an amino acid that helps to time release the hydroxy acids down through the skin’s Epidermis to the basal layer. As with all Medik8’s time release products it reduces the chance of irritation.
The Acids work by breaking down the bonds of the corneocytes, increasing cell regeneration, destroying weak/damaged skin cells and producing new healthy skin cells and boosting fibroblast activity. At the same time the skin’s proteins react with the acids in the low pH and coagulation (tightening) occurs.
Medik8 offers various Chemical Peels to help with Anti-aging, Pigmentation and Blemish prone skin.

spirit of hemp experience
CBD oil has been given a lot of press of late and rightfully so as its effects can really be life changing. CBD is amazing but it is also the Terpenes, flavonoids and other molecules within the Hemp plant that if combined create a wonderful synergy of healing the body. Spirit of Hemp goes the extra mile to create products using the whole plant.
MANICURES & PEDICURES
I have chosen to partner with professional natural nail care brand Jessica. From the signature line of prescriptive base coats and catwalk inspired shades, to GELerations soak-off gel system, Jessica offers a complete luxury manicure and pedicure.
Jessica does not test on animals. All its nail varnishes bar three are vegan, and all are free from the seven main nasties found in some other cosmetics: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, ethyl tosylamide, camphor, toluene, DBP and xylene.
Professional GELeration soak-off gel polish is smudge-proof, high-shine and long-lasting with no more treatment time than a regular manicure. Staying true to Jessica’s philosophy of care for the natural nail, each step of the treatment, from application to removal, maintains the nail’s health. Prescriptive base coats can be used alongside GELeration, while the gel itself protects nails and encourages weak or bitten nails to grow.

I use Outback Organics for all wax treatments. These botanical products contain natural extracts from the bushlands and forests of Australia. Outback Organics have been developed with the award-winning specialist waxer and educator Andy Rouillard and aim to make waxing treatments as natural and pleasant as possible. Outback Organics products are not tested on animals and are free from harsh synthetic chemicals.
Outback Organics believes in sustainability for future generations, protecting the environment in which the plants are grown and working alongside the local people who harvest them, with ethical trading practices which benefit the people and environments that produce these ingredients. The entire range is free from synthetic colouring and fragrances, parabens, SLS, SLES, lanolin, mineral oil and harsh chemicals.
I love Outback Organics’ ethos and have been impressed with both their products and training they give. All waxes use advanced technology: the eucalyptus strip wax I use for the body has a low melting point for client comfort and the eucalyptus oil opens the pores and ensures maximum hair removal. Its antiseptic properties also prevent infected pores and can help to calm the skin after a waxing treatment. All products are vegan-friendly and paraben-free.
The Outback Organics Gold peelable wax I choose for intimate waxing uses advanced polymer technology for effective removal of all hair types anywhere on the body and face; from coarse, strongly rooted hair to fine, downy fuzz. It is tough on hair and gentle on skin with no skin pull, and can go over an area several times if needed to remove all those tricky hairs.
For brow and lash tinting, I use the tried and tested brand Apraise

hot stone (80 mins)
Hot Stone massage uses heated basalt stones in a massage ritual that penetrates deep into the muscle tissues. Placing the stones over Chakra points helps alleviate negativity and encourages the unobstructed flow of energy. Crystals correlating to each of the seven main Chakras can be placed on their point to further encourage a positive flow.
Hot stones have been used since ancient times by many different cultures to relieve muscle tension and pain. Native American women used it to relieve menstrual cramps. In my practice I have helped women who suffer during this time to relieve both emotional and physical tension.
Swedish massage is a specific massage technique designed specifically to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. It’s ideal after sporting activities or simply as a means of relaxation as it reduces both physical and emotional stress.

indian head massage (30 mins)
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck. This form of massage focuses on the three higher chakras - mind, body and spirit - and as such hits your energy epicenter.
This treatment can help with relaxation and the alleviation of stress and brain-fog, clearing ones head and helping with alertness and concentration. It helps to relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, and improves the texture of your hair and encourages it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. It can be given either with oils or as a dry massage.

Hello. I’m Isabelle, the founder of Beautiful Therapies.
I love beauty therapy. I love making women look good, and just as importantly, feel good. I love the glisten of a new polish, eyes that shine out after a tint and shape, and understanding the body under my hands in a massage.
But most of all I love skin. Good skin gives confidence. A simple facial can bring so much satisfaction, and series of facials or a new skincare regime can bring major physical and emotional change.
My ethos at Beautiful Therapies is to provide the space and the treatments for women to relax, restore and rejuvenate. I have spent years training in all the services I offer and researching the beauty industry, looking for the best products and services available. I have sourced products which are cruelty-free, ethical, have a low environmental impact and are free of chemical nasties. Many are organic or vegan.
I’m proud to have returned to my roots to establish Beautiful Therapies. I was born and raised here in Forest Row, in an alternative community. I rebelled with a career in property, moved to London and then Cornwall, and started a family. But my heart and soul have always been in beauty and wellbeing, and now I’m back where I was born, doing what I feel I was born to do.
